The proliferation of network connectivity combined with an insatiable appetite for content and communication has resulted in media over IP (internet protocol) becoming the biggest consumer of bandwidth globally. This demand has prompted IP network providers and equipment vendors to become media mature. Applications today can take advantage of the benefits packet switching has, while leadingedge projects, such as webRTC, promise a whole new voice and video experience. Packet switched media benefits from improved distribution, relatively low-cost transmission and low signal loss over long hauls. The media itself can include telephony and voice communication, ondemand video content or two way video. Video on demand has its own set of data format, interoperability and content management issues, however the non-real-time, unidirectional nature and suitability for buffering offers flexibility in the way the service is delivered.

Building a Cold Chain Management IoT Solution

Article | February 27, 2020

Artificial intelligence (AI) has existed in the public consciousness for decades. The (mostly) sentient machines playing the villains in Hollywood movies have never been realistic depictions of the technology, but they have left an impression, nonetheless. AI has proved as exciting to the layman as it is to the expert. Usually based in remote data centers, AI is capable of collecting and examining immense volumes of data, generating insights based on analytical algorithms. With varying degrees of autonomy, these capabilities have been put to use streamlining decision-making processes. While AI is often thought of as a product in its own right, it is increasingly intersecting with other parallel trends. Chief among these is the Internet of things (IoT), which enables previously isolated machines to “talk” to one another and, at the same time, generate data that makes new modes of operation a possibility.

Finding and Fixing Blind Spots in Enterprise IoT Security

Article | February 27, 2020

The Internet of Things has been a breakthrough, and adoption rates keep exploding. There are possibly over 20 billion IoT devices in the world, and by 2025, there may have been 75 billion. Even though there has been a rise in smart home devices, most IoT devices are found in businesses, industries, and healthcare. The benefits are overwhelming: from enabling automation of repetitive tasks (both simple and complex), to real-time data insights and analytics, IoT devices make workers more productive, improve customer experience, and reduce operating costs. However, with the many benefits of IoT devices come serious disadvantages, chief of which is security. Here are some reasons why IoT devices have such serious security risks:

Artificial Intelligence Applications: Is Your Business Implementing AI Smartly?

Article | February 27, 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.
