Ensuring Interoperability in Internet of Things (IoT)

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.

IoT AND PRIVACY BYDESIGN IN THE SMART HOME

whitePaper | June 20, 2017

The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a globally recognized term in workplaces and homes, and in a literal sense could be used to describe anything that is connected to the internet. However, if you ask what sort of devices are included in the IoT, then you are likely to get differing answers with respondents describing the devices they have come into contact with, or know about. This can include everything from cell phones, smart bulbs, fitness trackers, smart speakers and dishwashers, all the way to water quality sensors in pumping stations.

How Mobile IoT is Changingb the Industrial Landscape

whitePaper | September 12, 2018

Cellular technologies are evolving to meet the growing demand in industry for more production data, predicative maintenance and greater automation. Using licenced spectrum to provide low power wide area (LPWA) connectivity - Mobile Internet of Things (Mobile IoT) technologies are playing a pivotal role in connecting factories, machines, industrial equipment and sensors, to enable a more advanced, efficient and flexible way of working. LTE-M and NB-IoT, the two Mobile IoT technologies, are ideally suited to providing cost-effective, secure and reliable connectivity to legacy machinery with a long lifespan. Both technologies can penetrate deep within factory buildings, allowing connectivity to reach machines below ground level and other inaccessible places.

Succeeding with the IoT-Ready Infrastructure

whitePaper |

It wasn’t that long ago when the majority of an Internet of Things (IoT) discussions were comprised of little more than pointing to a few edge IoT use cases, predictions, and outright hope regarding the promises of the technology. Today, IoT is moving from marketing to Main Street. And those companies that get it right will operate more effectively, break into new markets, and find new services their customers want.

Virtualization and the Internet of Things

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

"Industrial control devices have been around for years. The initial devices were manufacturedwith a personality, a business logic that was already built in when they left the manufacturingplant to perform one fixed function (and nothing else). They were deployed for specifictasks such as controlling industrial equipment, electricity generation, power plants, trains, planes, or automobiles.But times have changed. Today, devices are shipped comparatively bare and are then given a personality through software download from USB devices, flash cards, or otherprogramming over some form of connection. These more generic devices can bemanufactured with a limited set of functionality and given more content during deploymentby a system integrator.Responding to and driving these developments, technology for industrial control devices has also changed dramatically in recent years—from 8-bit to 64-bit processors, frommicro-controllers to multi-core—and now the Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the gameagain. As device manufacturers aim to take advantage of the opportunities created byIoT, one new technology is embedded virtualization. This paper discusses how embeddedvirtualization enables the device flexibility and security required for IoT. "
