Capitalizing on The Internet of Things: A Primer

March 1, 2016

The Internet of Things (IoT)–described aptly as “the convergence of the digital and physical worlds”–is transforming the way business is done across every sector of the economy and every industry, across the globe. There is one thing that every company prospering from IoT today has in common– they understand that the Internet of Things is not about things, it's about service. Devices and products (things) are simply tools that help businesses establish a direct, always-on connection between themselves and their customers. IoT turns those devices and products into service-delivery vehicles capable of continuously unlocking new value for customers and sources of revenue for your business.

Building the New Network Security Architecture for the Future

whitePaper | January 1, 2018

Security teams have lost visibility into their networks. As recently as a few years ago, network boundaries were well-defined and data and devices easily identified. But a tsunami of new developments means that not only have we lost the boundaries of the network, but we have lost control over how and what is attached to it as well. With technologies such as IoT, IIoT (Industrial IoT) and cloud impacting network visibility, security controls have become less effective. This lack of visibility creates gaps in the overall network security of an organization, making it difficult to see attacks, let alone stop them within the company’s network boundaries. This makes it imperative to rethink the network security architecture to ensure that the necessary visibility is achieved within an organization’s network.

The Internet of Me: How Wearable Tech is Changing IoT

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

Imagine jogginga long your favorite trail when suddenly you feel a shortness of breath and a painful squeeze in your chest. You stop… and with a flick of a finger, you instantly notify emergency responders of your situation and your location. At the same time, the notification alerts your doctor of the incident and sends your vital statistics. What enables all of this information to be gathered and transported to the right place is the combination of sensors and connectivity provided by the devices that make up the wearable Internet of Things.

Narrowband-IoT: pushing the boundaries of IoT

whitePaper |

A number of different technologies have been developed to fulfil LPWA requirements, and we believe Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) not only offers enterprise-grade technical specifications, but is also the practical choice for carriers, device manufacturers and ultimately enterprise users. To understand why NB-IoT is uniquely suited to business IoT deployments, we compare NB-IoT against two LPWA alternatives, LoRa and Sigfox.
