Four Key Strategies to Kickstart Your IoT Revolution

The rapid growth of IoT sensors and solutions is driving higher expectations of IT and supporting systems, including networking, storage, analytics, sensors, application and compute. We are standing at the forefront of the merger between Operational Technology and Information Technology. The Internet of Things is transforming (and in most cases improving) how we live, work, play, and stay safe and healthy—as well as how companies, cities and countries operate more efficiently. This technology will improve our ability to sense failure points sooner, improve business operations, and utilize the information we have to make actionable insight a part of our daily lives. This is a new, groundbreaking era for technology; hopefully this paper will prepare you for the future of the Internet of Things.

Global Industry Standards for Industrial IoT

whitePaper | June 2, 2021

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a rapidly expanding world of connected objects. As IIoT systems proliferate, large amounts of data are consumed by machine learning algorithms and shared between partners, customers and others. IIoT is a technology environment in which integration and interoperability are critical capabilities and the complexity of this environment makes this difficult to achieve. Standards play a critical role in IIoT for five main reasons. First, users and vendors cannot engineer a custom interface every time components or systems need to interact. Standards can make this explosion of interfaces manageable; they are the lingua franca for interoperability. For suppliers, this eliminates needless costs related to common capabilities instead encouraging a focus on innovations that add value.

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.

CYBER SECURITY IN THE ERA OF INDUSTRIAL IOT

whitePaper | February 6, 2020

Industrial cyber security has been a topic of much debate over the last decade. Despite the industry’s widespread acknowledgement of its significance, cyber security in the industry continues to be an elusive subject for many. A huge gap exists in understanding the implications of cyber security; however, the subject has been greatly discussed. Interestingly, the industrial environment is currently passing through a key phase, where the idea of Internet of Things (IoT) is beginning to pervade all areas of industrial operation. This ongoing change is poised to expand the complex security needs in the factories of the future.
