Why Edge Computing is the Future of IoT

For last few decades, we saw a change of local software processing turning to cloud computing. We are not limited to access everything we want from anywhere, but it’s about to go back to decentralized computing. It seems strange to ignore the advantages of cloud networks but to get the most out of the Internet of Things we have to make technology local again. We can compare this situation to evolution of agricultural industry. People moved from consuming food that was from their local area to goods from every corner of the planet. While technology, transportation, and refrigerators allow it, it is often healthier and economically reasonable to consume local food. We are not talking about ignoring global food access, but we could take advantage of locally grown products when we can.

An Introduction to IoT Sensors

Article | March 5, 2020

This post will cover various important sensors that are possibilities for an IoT deployment. Sensors are the backbone of any IoT deployment. They gather information and provide software with sensory information it needs to achieve its full potential. In addition, this post will go over considerations and decision-making for selecting sensors in an IoT deployment. Often times, a single sensor is not the best implementation, a suite of sensors can gather more data and even affect behavior for other sensors. In many cases, more than one sensor is necessary to perform the IoT deployment’s function. Sensors are just as critical to every IoT application as the internet. Imagine Alexa or Google Home without a microphone: it wouldn’t work. People wouldn’t be able to interact with the device, or it would need some other kind of sensor such as a keyboard to obtain input from a user.

Run-Time Provisioning of Security Credentials for IoT Devices

Article | March 20, 2020

To prevent counterfeit devices from joining a network or to limit the opportunity for network attacks, it’s important to authenticate devices attempting to join Internet of Things (IoT) networks and subsequently connect only authorized devices. The standard mechanism to securely authenticate clients connecting to a server is transport-layer-security (TLS) client-side authentication. To implement such authentication in an IoT network, the appropriate certificate authority (CA)—usually the IoT device provider—issues a unique X.509 certificate to each IoT device and the associated private key that functions as a unique security credential for the IoT device. Once the certificate and associated private key are stored on the IoT device, it may use them during the TLS client-authentication process to securely join the IoT network.

Smart Submeters And Their Key Benefits

Article | February 14, 2020

Energy management and efficiency utilization are the challenges for building owners, facility managers, and tenants. With the traditional metering solutions, building owners can’t measure accurate consumptions, usage patterns, and downtimes. It is simple: You can’t manage if you can’t measure. Building owners and tenants have been speculating about bettering and changing their approach to optimize energy consumption by deploying smart submeters. In contrast to traditional electrical meter, a smart submeter is infused with network connectivity features to upload the data. They track, monitor, measure, and upload data to servers for real-time visibility. Earlier building owners used to bill according to the space occupied by the tenants. Think about inaccurate billing – have you ever seen a bill that confused you?
