"Get started with the Internet of Things in your organization"

March 1, 2016

"You’ve likely heard and read about the technology trend called the Internet of Things (IoT). When you see definitions and hype about IoT, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. When analysts and other companies mention connecting billions of devices or creating trillions of dollars in economic value, it can be difficult to equate that to what it can do for your business—today. But there’s no reason IoT has to be futuristic, complicated, or overwhelming. "

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.

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.

Tailoring IoT platforms to the requirements of specific use cases

whitePaper | April 13, 2021

The Internet of Things has evolved in the last 10-15 years from a long-term visionary idea to our current reality, present in more and more domains of our everyday lives. Many IoT architectures and platforms are being proposed today by various academic and industrial consortia, in domains as diverse as smart manufacturing, smart homes, smart cities or smart transport, to name just a few. These different IoT platforms have many things in common, as they all rely on connecting some smart sensor and actuator devices to each other and to the Internet, providing value-added services and applications to us, human users, either directly, or in an indirect manner. However, by closely analyzing their structure and operational focus, we can observe that these IoT architectures and platforms have also special features tailored to the requirements of different use cases.

Transforming Endpoints with Artificial Intelligence

whitePaper | August 5, 2021

There has never been so much compute power available in IoT devices - now is the time to be designing and deploying true intelligence in IoT endpoints. Devices which are aware of their environment are capable of adding huge value to the data they collect and the services which they enable. This paper explores how new and emerging technology can enable your devices to see, hear and feel what is going on, interpret what they sense, take autonomous actions and generate real, trusted, valued data for the cloud. Recent developments in hardware and software will enable a step change in the capability of resource-constrained endpoint platforms, allowing developers to build vision, voice and vibration capability, coupled with genuine intelligence at the endpoint.
