Harness the power of IoT data

whitePaper | December 4, 2018

The proliferation of connected machines, devices, and things is rapidly transforming the way businesses extract value from data. A growing interconnection of the physical world with computer-based platforms—known as the Internet of Things (IoT)—is producing massive data volumes that contain real-time insight, which can help organizations adopt new business models, streamline operational processes, and create more innovative products and services.

Security Challenges for User-Oriented RFID Applications within the ‘Internet of Things’

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a technology that is being increasingly integrated into aspects of everyday life. RFID is often associated only with item ‘tags’ but is actually a collective term given to a number of technologies. A collection of mature standards and proprietary system specifications govern system operation and the variety of systems available allows RFID to be tailored to many applications. Electronic Product Code (EPC) tokens, contactless credit cards, epassports and access control are just a few examples of systems that use variants of this technology.

Prepare for Billions: The IoT 2020 IT Infrastructure Readiness Indicator

whitePaper | March 10, 2018

The Internet of Things (IoT) continues to fundamentally transform economies worldwide. Thanks to the era of “connecting the unconnected,” cities, transportation, supply chains, commercial real estate, and industries like health care, retail, and entertainment are becoming smarter, more efficient, and more resilient. An IoT strategy for any organization should, holistically speaking, be part of a bigger Digital Transformation (DX) vision. Digital Transformation — the application of a technology-centric business vision and accompanying strategies — is mandatory for firms to thrive in a digital economy. Firms embark on DX to create value and extend their competitive advantages through new products and services, new business models and relationships, improve customer experience, and increase operational efficiencies.

Internet of Things for Enterprise Systems of Modern Manufacturing

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

Design and operation of a manufacturing enterprise involve numerous types of decision- making at various levels and domains. A complex system has a large number of design variables and decision-making requires real-time data collected from machines, processes, and business environments. Enterprise systems (ESs) are used to support data acquisition, communication, and all decision-making activities. Therefore, information technology (IT) infrastructure for data acquisition and sharing affects the performance of an ES greatly. Our objective is to investigate the impact of emerging Internet of Things (IoT) on ESs in modern manufacturing. To achieve this objective, the evolution of manufacturing system paradigms is discussed to identify the requirements of decision support systems in dynamic and distributed environments; recent advances in IT are overviewed and associated with next-generation manufacturing paradigms; and the relation of IT infrastructure and ESs is explored to identify the technological gaps in adopting IoT as an IT infrastructure of ESs. The future research directions in this area are discussed.

Indoor 5G Networks White Paper

whitePaper | September 1, 2018

The fifth generation of mobile communications technology (5G) represents the main direction of future network development. It promises to enable the transition from broadband interconnection between people to the connectivity of everything, while reshaping the way we live and work. On December 20th, 2017, 3GPP published the first 5G New Radio (NR) standards at its 78th RAN plenary meeting in Lisbon, Portugal and 3GPP approved the standalone version of the 5G NR standard at the plenary meeting on June 14th, 2018. This release sets out the technical specifications of NR in the first phase of 5G deployment, speeding up 5G's commercial use. More than 20 global operators have begun to set up 5G first office application (FOA) sites or pre-commercial sites. Various services, such as virtual reality (VR) and telemedicine, will flourish in a new, intelligent fully connected world. As the majority of daily activities take place indoors, the industry urgently requires the critical tasks of further research into 5G's services requirements and a deeper exploration into viable network deployment strategies.

Internet of Things and Industrial Internet Messaging Technologies Comparison Whitepaper

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

The most important messaging technologies proposed as the foundation of the next generation of Internet of Things (IoT) and more specifically the Industrial Internet applications are reviewed in this document. An understanding of both the architecture and the message/data sharing requirements of each target system is an important pre-requisite for choosing the most appropriate messaging solution. AMQP and JMS have been designed to address applications requiring fast and reliable business transactions. JMS is focused on Java-centric systems although there are a number of vendors who have developed proprietary C and C++ JMS API mappings that can be used with a JMS broker. As an API standard, JMS cannot guarantee interoperability between producers and consumers using different JMS implementations.
