How to Harness M2M Technology to Build Smarter Business Models

March 1, 2016

Much has been written about machine-to-machine (M2M) communication from a technical perspective: enabling technologies, connectivity requirements,compatibility considerations, security issues, and so on. However, much less has been written about M2M from a business perspective. That’s partly because M2M is a complex and multidimensional topic—and partly because the role of M2M in the commercial arena is still emerging. But it’s a situation that is changing quickly as business leaders begin to see M2M for what it truly is: a unique opportunity for transformation.

Establishing Confidence in IoT Device Security: How do we get there?

whitePaper | May 14, 2021

The purpose of this draft paper is to start a conversation about what it means to have confidence in the cybersecurity of IoT devices used by individuals and organizations and the various ways of gaining that confidence. This paper describes the landscape of confidence mechanisms that are currently available for establishing the security of IoT devices in the marketplace. In preparing this paper, NIST conducted extensive research on initiatives that can help to instill confidence in IoT device security and held a series of meetings with government and industry experts to glean information on the unique aspects and challenges in this space.

Internet of Things for Telecom Engineers

whitePaper | February 11, 2020

The Internet of Things (IoT) is no longer the future: it is the new reality moving telecommunications forward. The IoT enables physical objects to see, hear, think, and perform jobs by having them “talk” to each other, share information, and coordinate decisions. The number of internet-enabled objects has surpassed the Earth’s population. Today, the IoT connects everything from HVAC thermostats and smart homes to transportation, healthcare, industrial automation, and emergency response equipment. As the prevalence of IoT innovations grow, telecom leaders must embrace the opportunities, and challenges, posed by a more connected future.

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.

Smart solution for sustainable cities

whitePaper | January 8, 2020

The 19th century was a century of empires. The 20th century was a century of states. The 21st century will be a century of cities.” This quote by Wellington E. Webb, former mayor of the City of Denver, seems plausible when you look at the numbers: Although cities cover only a fraction of the Earth’s surface, they are already home to more than half of the world’s population.

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.
