Internet of Things (IoT) in the Federal Government

whitePaper | June 8, 2021

The Internet of Things is one of the most impactful IT innovations of our time. As consumers, we already encounter the IoT in our daily lives with smart items such as TVs, watches, and phones. As we journey further in time, IoT will become a ubiquitous aspect of life at home and in the workplace. Gartner defines the IoT as the network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with their internal states or the external environment.” More simply, IoT devices are computers (typically very small), that are embedded into an object to perform a function (e.g., collect data, run software) and connect to a network (e.g., the internet). For example, an IoT device could be an assembly line sensor capable of detecting minute deficiencies and determining when equipment needs repair.

Securing Devices in Advanced Metering Infrastructures

whitePaper | January 8, 2020

Smart grid managers and Head End System (HES) vendors depend on data to drive their business. Receiving and analyzing accurate data from grid endpoints - the smart meters - is the main element that determines business success. Their customers, Distribution System Operators (DSOs) and Advanced Metering Infrastructures (AMI) managers, then use this data for crucial processes: monitoring energy demand and production, load shifting to maintain a persistent grid balance at all times and billing customers. Each tiny bit of data is the starting point for monetization and asset management and it must be accurate and trusted in order to keep power flowing.
