How safe are home security systems? An HPE study on IoT security

March 1, 2016

The Internet of Things (IoT) will undoubtedly continue to make headlines in 2015, with the issue of security becoming more prevalent. Following up on the 2014 Internet of Things Research Study from HPE that reviewed the security of the top 10 most common IoT devices, we now explore the security of some of the newest, connected home security systems. The simplicity and convenience of home security systems is unquestionable, especially with their remote monitoring capabilities. But do these smart security devices actually make our homes safer or put them more at risk by providing easier electronic access via an (insecure) IoT device?

Exploring the Internet of Things in the Enterprise

whitePaper |

Intel IT is conducting two proofs of concept, using the Intel® IoT Platform, to evaluate the business value of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the enterprise setting. One proof of concept focuses on asset utilization and energy efficiency in Intel’s office buildings. The other explores how IoT solutions can improve data center operations. In both proofs of concept, we are evaluating the reusability, interoperability, and scalability of the solution. Although IoT technology is still maturing and technology gaps exist, the Intel IoT Platform is a major advance in quickly deploying edge-to-cloud IoT solutions. The platform goes beyond simply connecting sensors to the cloud through a gateway.

Communication for the Industrial Internet of Things

whitePaper |

The term Internet of Things (IoT) first surfaced a few years ago. At its core, it describes a scenario where intelligent devices communicate with each other to enhance functionality and improve operational efficiency without any human interaction. IoT devices have a physical interface to the real world that enables them to capture, analyze and act on all kinds of data. These devices can learn about their environment and adapt to it; communicate and cooperate with one another; and perform very specific functions within a specific context. Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applies to application areas, like factory automation, process automation, energy infrastructure or transportation. While the idea and vision behind it are the same as in other areas, deterministic behavior, cyber security and redundancy are some of the aspects that are especially important for the IIoT.

5G for IoT? You're Just in Time

whitePaper | April 2, 2019

The 5th generation of cellular technology, commonly referred to as 5G, is slowly becoming a reality. What started in 2012 in the standards bodies has now evolved into a set of wireless technologies that are making the transition from standardization to commercialization. This paper looks at what that means for deployments in the Internet of Things (IoT).

M2M without Borders Why eSIM is a Game Changer for the International ‘Internet of Things’

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

When hearing the term, “machine-to-machine,” most people probably think of the ubiquitous cell phone … in one form or another. With a little more consideration, the average person might also decide to include laptops and notepads as additional actors in the modern world of mobile communications. Another way of thinking about M2M is as a whole “Internet of Things” for which online connectivity is essential.This IoT is comprised of devices that transmit digital data via some type of network (wired, wireless, hybrid) to another device that then translates the communication into usable information. Today, we see M2M applications for such purposes as logistics, fleet management, car safety, healthcare and smart metering … and those are just the tip of a rapidly growing iceberg.
