Build vs. Buy Choosing The Right Connectivity Infrastructure for Your IoT Application

Five years ago, the decision of whether to build or buy a connectivity infrastructure was relatively simple. Build. However, that assertion is a bit of a misnomer, because until recently, purchasing the solutions necessary to power Internet of Things (IoT) applications simply wasn’t an available commodity.

"Reducing Datacenter Energy Usage Via PowerSaving IP and System Design Techniques"

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

"As the modern world becomes increasingly connected, businesses and consumers alike are relying more and moreon digital data—from documents to video to audio. Behind the scenes, datacenters that manage all of this digitaldata are a somewhat silent, yet impactful, part of this connectivity revolution. These centers are lined with serversthat process digital data for everything from social media status updates to web searches to cloud computing. Eachof these servers requires energy to run as well as energy to keep them cool, and the centers are typically filled with additional machines for redundancy. In the US alone, datacenters consume anywhere from 1.5% to 3% of the country’s energy production. How can the chip design industry make datacenters more energy efficient? This paper examines system techniques, including virtualization, as well as design considerations and protocol improvements that can lower the energy utilization of datacenters."

Australia’s IoT Opportunity: Driving Future Growth

whitePaper | September 19, 2018

Australia has benefited and prospered from an unprecedented 27 years of economic growth. However, economists argue our good fortune is mainly due to external factors rather than through improvements in the productivity of our industries or workforce. Weak productivity growth is costing the economy dearly and could make Australia uncompetitive in global markets critical for our future.
