While people’s lives have changed dramatically as a result of the Internet over the past decade, the Internet of Things (IoT), based on the exchange of information directly between intelligent connected devices, is poised to bring about another wave of transformational change for people’s lives in the future. In February 2013, the Chinese State Council issued its Guidance Opinion about Pushing Forward the Orderly and Healthy Development of IoT. Following that opinion, other ministries and departments, including the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, NDRC, Ministry of Science and Technology, and Ministry of Education and Standardization Administration of P.R.C., jointly stipulated 10 Special Action Plans for IoT Development, as well as 47 national standards plans. Stimulated by a series of favorable policies, the industrial scale of IoT has been climbing rapidly. According to IDC’s latest data, by 2020 the market value of IoT and its technology ecosystem will reach $8.9 trillion, and the number of connected devices will reach 212 billion units.

Which IoT Applications will Benefit Most from Edge Computing?

Article | March 2, 2020

Edge computing refers to information being processed at the edge of the network, rather than being sent to a central cloud server. The benefits of edge computing include reduced latency, reduced costs, increased security and increased business efficiency. Transferring data from the edge of a network takes time, particularly if the data is being collected in a remote location. While the transfer may usually take less than a second, glitches in the network or an unreliable connection may increase the time required. For some IoT applications, for example, self-driving cars, even a second may be too long. Imagine a security camera that’s monitoring an empty hallway. There’s no need to send hours of large video files of an empty hallway to a cloud server (where you will need to pay to store them). With edge computing, the video could be sent to the cloud only if there is movement detected in the hallway.

AR Indoor Navigation Technology Connects Retailers With Shoppers

Article | March 2, 2020

Technology drives innovation, and for most retail companies, the “Transform or Die” motto still rings true. Retailers are always experimenting with the latest tech innovations to reshape the customer experience to alter their expectations both in physical stores and online. But simply following every hot trend in the industry because of the fear of missing out (FOMO) is one of the most common mistakes retailers make when adopting emerging technologies. The retailers who thrive in their respective markets are the ones who learn how to implement technologies that deliver the highest return on investment (ROI) from Gartner’s hype cycle for emerging technologies.

Why You Need Contextual IoT Device Management

Article | March 2, 2020

In my previous post, I gave an explanation of basic IoT device management and why it’s insufficient for certain kinds of massive-scale IoT deployments. In addition to basic IoT device management, contextual IoT device management is necessary to ensure success when dealing with IoT solutions involving thousands to millions of devices. In this post, I explore some of the key aspects of contextual IoT device management, with real examples that demonstrate why you need to manage devices contextually if you’re building, buying, and/or implementing massive-scale IoT solutions.
