A Gateway to Smarter Building Automation

March 1, 2016

"Rising power consumption; increasing emissions; mounting energy costs. These and other factors are driving the need for a sustainable, eco-friendly future. However, although research continues on clean, renewable energy sources such as wind and solar, the capital cost of producing a unit of energy has doubled since 2000. It’s time for another approach. This is the promise of the Internet of Things (IoT). By harnessing the power of connectivity, data, and analytics, the IoT
can effect real change on the commercial and industrial sectors through building automation systems (BAS) that monitor and adjust power consumption according to usage, reducing financial and ecological waste without impacting lifestyles or economic efficiency. "

Poster Abstract: A Modular Programming Approach for IoT-Based Wireless Sensor Networks

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

We aim to build a programming framework for IoT-based WSN, where we try to free the programmer from responsibilities of resource management, application distribution, and code deployment. As a foundation of this framework, we propose a modular programming model which lets programmer describe the application functionality with minimum knowledge of resources available in the WSN. We propose that using such programming model, the application code can facilitate the automatic deployment and management of IoT-based WSN applications

EURASIA GROUP WHITE PAPER: THE GEOPOLITICS OF 5G

whitePaper | November 18, 2018

The race is underway to deploy next-generation 5G mobile networks. 5G will be both quantitatively different from previous generations of mobile network technology and qualitatively different from anything that has come before, in terms of the innovation that it will enable. This report, authored by Paul Triolo and Kevin Allison of Eurasia Group’s Geo-technology practice, offers an introduction to the geopolitics of 5G. It explains how political forces, including the ongoing technology and trade confrontation between the US and China, will shape the development of next-generation mobile standards, spectrum allocation, and deployment in key markets and regions. It likewise addresses how 5G’s development will shape economic, technological, and geopolitical competition between the world’s leading technology superpowers.

THE INTERNET OF THINGS (IOT) TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENTS AFFECTING SUPPLY CHAIN AND LOGISTICS

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

The IoT—sometimes referred to as the Industrial Internet of Things or Industrial Internet—is a term that describes the revolution of embedding chips, sensors, software and other forms of electronic connectivity in physical objects in order to collect and exchange data. It allows objects to be online and communicate with one another and be sensed and/or controlled remotely. Yes, mobile phones, wearable technologies such as the Apple Watch, and other consumer devices are part of this revolution, but it extends far beyond a few consumer devices.

Accelerating Business Transformation

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

"The ability of intelligent devices to perceive and respond to the environment aroundthem makes them highly valuable for complex, automated decision making in a broadrange of industries. The growth potential is explosive: Billions of units are generatingmore than $1 trillion in revenue today, and according to technology analysts IDC, themarket for intelligent systems will reach nearly 4 billion units by 2015, representing more than $2 trillion in revenue. IDC further predicts that there will be anywhere from 20 to 50billion connected devices by 2020.Yet significant challenges remain for this Internet of Things (IoT)—in particular, an absence of standardized recipes that would allow IoT solutions to scale across multiple industries.As a global leader in embedded technology, Wind River® delivers the solutions thatmake IoT and the devices that run on it intelligent, reliable, manageable, and secure. We work closely with device and system developers, manufacturers and integrators, networkoperators and end customers in a variety of industries to understand business needs andidentify IoT solutions. This paper draws on that experience to outline some of the major opportunities we see for business as well as some of the challenges to unlocking the fullpotential of IoT."
