Service modelling for the Internet of Things

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

The Internet of Things envisions a multitude of heterogeneous objects and interactions with the physical environment. The functionalities provided by these objects can be termed as `real-world services' as they provide a near real-time state of the physical world. A structured, machine-processible approach to provision such real-world services is needed to make heterogeneous physical objects accessible on a large scale and to integrate them with the digital world. This paper presents a semantic modeling approach for different components in an IoT framework. It is also discussed how the model can be integrated into the IoT framework by using automated association mechanisms with physical entities and how the data can be discovered using semantic search and reasoning mechanisms.

Ensuring Interoperability in Internet of Things (IoT)

whitePaper |

The Internet of Things is the next big disruption that will change the way information is shared, processed and consumed. It connects humans, internet and physical assets such as sensors and consumer devices into one connected ecosystem. The IoT market is at an inflection point and is poised to grow exponentially in the time to come. 99 % of ‘things’ in IoT are still unconnected, and this represents a huge opportunity for Communication Equipment Providers, Semiconductor and Embedded Systems vendors and Communication Service Providers. However, the presence of multiple communication technologies and the absence of universal standard means that Interoperability will be one of the most critical and most complex aspect of IoT. It is essential for the end user to have a seamless experience and interoperability will play a very vital role in implementing that.

The Importance of the Edge for the Industrial Internet of Things in the Energy Industry

whitePaper |

It is clear that the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has arrived—and is here to stay. Today’s IIoT is perhaps best defined by interconnectivity. This enables better monitoring, information gathering, role-based information presentation, and operator situational awareness—and ultimately leads to improved decision-making, increased optimization, improved safety, and lowered costs. The Energy Industry in particular is well-positioned to take advantage of the IIoT. The industrialized world needs energy, and the demand for hydrocarbons will not diminish in our lifetimes. But with the price of oil hovering around $50/barrel, companies need to reduce costs to be profitable. A recent MIT Sloan School of Management case study1 estimated that an unproductive day in a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility could cost as much as $25 million. It also estimated that this happens an average of five times a year, costing a company $125 million per year per facility in unplanned downtime.

How IoT Delivers Better Patient Care and Optimizes Healthcare Facility Operation

whitePaper |

Hospitals. Outpatient clinics. Assisted living centers. Facilities just like these seek to use advanced technology to improve patient care. As our world becomes more connected, that advanced technology extends beyond direct patient care to the facility infrastructure itself. This technology creates more efficient, safe, and pleasant healthcare experiences for patients and staff alike. In particular, the Internet of Things (IoT) offers new possibilities for healthcare structures of all sizes.
