If you’ve never visited a modern data center, you should try it sometime. They may look unassuming from the outside often they appear much like warehouses or factories, sited on drab industrial estates. But inside they’re amazing places, full of noise, flashing lights and intricate bundles of cabling. Transmissions from all your IoT devices end up right here in your data center. It’s the heart of your IoT ecosystem.

Artificial Intelligence Applications: Is Your Business Implementing AI Smartly?

Article | March 12, 2020

The book Design, Launch, and Scale IoT Services classifies the components of IoT services into technical modules. One of the most important of these is Artificial Intelligence (AI). This article is intended to supplement the book by providing insight into AI and its applications for IoT. After many years in the wilderness, AI is back on the hype curve and will change the world again. Or, will it? AI has always been interesting, but what has changed to justify the current hype? There are several contributing factors. The volumes of data that will be produced by many IoT services suggest that this data cannot be managed by humans with traditional analytics tools. Therefore, AI can offer opportunities for IoT services to extract maximum value from the data. IoT cloud platforms are now offering AI services via APIs and application development tools, making AI more accessible for many IoT services. Now, AI can be incorporated without requiring extensive development or excessive costs.

Top ‘avenues’ for developers in smart cities

Article | April 1, 2020

Perhaps no more than a decade ago, the notion of ‘smart cities’ probably implied thoughts of which metropolitan areas could be said to have the greatest density of schools, colleges and universities. You want a smart city? Okay, how about Oxford, Cambridge, Massachusetts, Washington DC, Paris and so on. But that’s (obviously) not what we mean by smart cities today. In this post-millennial age, we define a smart city is a municipality that uses information and communication technologies (many of which will gravitate towards the Internet of Things (IoT) and the data backbones that serve it with application processing, data analytics and increasing amounts of AI) to increase operational efficiency, share information with the public and improve both the quality of government services and citizen welfare.

The role of BSS in the journey to 5G monetization

Article | March 24, 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.

Microsoft Introduces Seamless Integration of Azure IoT with Cisco IoT

Article | March 5, 2020

An integrated Azure IoT solution provides the necessary software, hardware, and cloud services that businesses need to rapidly launch IoT initiatives and quickly realize business value. Using software-based intelligence pre-loaded onto Cisco IoT network devices, telemetry data pipelines from industry-standard protocols, like OPC-Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) and Modbus, can be easily established using a UI directly into Azure IoT Hub. Services, like Microsoft Azure Stream Analytics, Microsoft Azure Machine Learning, and Microsoft Azure Notification Hub services, can be used to build IoT applications for the enterprise. Additional telemetry processing is also supported by Cisco through local scripts developed in Microsoft Visual Studio, where filtered data can also be uploaded directly into Azure IoT Hub. This collaboration provides customers with a fully integrated solution that will give access to design tools, global connectivity, advance analytics, and cognitive services for analyzing IoT data.
