The Internet of Things: Transforming treatment with connected healthcare

RYAN BEGLEY | March 1, 2016

When I talk to customers about their project ambitions for the Internet of Things (IoT), the use cases and ultimate goals of their projects seem limitless. Smart products, from smart locks to smart surgical devices, are undergoing a renaissance as the capabilities of these once analog products come to life through smart features and functions. Indeed, manufacturers now expect a whole portfolio of services to accompany their products.But the IoT community is wondering what will come next: What will happen after the Internet of Things matures? What sort of innovation will be possible when 50 billion sensors are interconnected and when the Spark and Hadoop frameworks are processing data sets of unprecedented size in mere minutes, on the hunt for patterns and anomalies? To what degree will automation rule our lives? What opportunities will be truly transformative?

Make Room For Public Clouds In Your Industrial IoT Strategy

Article | February 18, 2020

Not too long ago, executives from manufacturing and related industries would not consider running their internet of things (IoT) initiatives from a cloud. Now? It’s hard to find one who doesn’t enthusiastically embrace some role for the public cloud. Makers of industrial IoT (IIoT) software platforms have undergone a similar change of heart, pivoting from making grand plans for multibillion-dollar global data center rollouts to wholeheartedly partnering with one or more of the hyperscale public clouds. So far, so simple: Public cloud is definitely now part of the industrial IoT story. But there are a multitude of ways to use a public cloud, from just installing your own software there to fully integrating with all of the cloud, development, and IoT services that the hyperscale public cloud platforms increasingly offer. I explore this range of options in my latest report, “Hyperscale Public Clouds Power Your Industrial IoT Future,” and shall be discussing the issues in a client webinar on March 31.

What Is IoT Forensics? Challenges Ahead and Best Tools to Use

Article | February 18, 2020

Internet of Things, generally known as IoT, is a network of objects or things. Embedded sensors help connect and exchange data with other objects via the internet. IoT is often related to the concept of smart homes, including devices like home security systems, cameras, lighting, refrigerators, etc. With all this data being transmitted over the internet, it is easy for the data to be modified, deleted, or stolen, which can lead to an invasion, theft, etc. IoT forensics plays a vital role in maintaining the integrity and security of the data being transmitted. Join us as we explore this fascinating web of devices and how you can get started in this vibrant field of forensics.

The role of BSS in the journey to 5G monetization

Article | February 18, 2020

The rollout of commercial 5G services is well underway. This evolution is unlocking exciting new opportunities, but it also presents new challenges. To capture new 5G revenue streams, service providers must transform their existing business support systems (BSS), and develop clear roadmaps to guide this transformation. In the latest MIT Insights report, telecom executives share their vision for 5G-enabled BSS, and how they are preparing for it. Here, we explore some of the highlights. The benefits of 5G are well-documented. Low-latency connectivity and superior broadband speeds will open doors to fully automated factories and put driverless vehicles on our roads. Service providers will be able to provide cutting-edge solutions and superior consumer experiences. However, monetizing a 5G-fuelled IoT society requires a clear strategic roadmap – particularly when it comes to BSS. As 5G matures, BSS will play an increasingly important role in establishing the service provider’s position in the value chain – and having a clear BSS evolution plan is crucial.
