Inside the Internet of Things (IoT)

March 1, 2016

If you’ve ever seen the “check engine” light come on in your car and had the requisite repairs done in a timely way, you’ve benefited from an early-stage manifestation of what today is known as the Internet of Things (IoT). Something about your car’s operation—an action—triggered a sensor, 1 which communicated the data to a monitoring device. The significance of these data was determined based on aggregated information and prior analysis.

The Internet of Things and Persons with Disabilities

whitePaper | January 29, 2019

The Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to transform the lives of people with disabilities,1 industries, and society as a whole. Many of today’s IoT devices and services are increasingly accessible to people with disabilities; some IoT technologies are specifically designed for people with disabilities, whereas others are repurposed by them.2 The IoT and its associated data are producing accessibility-related advances, ranging from smart home devices to self-driving cars. IoT devices and services are also empowering people with disabilities to participate more fully and autonomously in everyday life by reducing some needs for human intermediaries or accommodations. Data derived from people with disabilities’ use of IoT devices and services can provide insights into the challenges and opportunities experienced by users. These insights can enhance existing IoT products and lead to the development of new ones.

On-Demand Provisioning Service Next generation of mobile subscription deployment for connected devices and IoT

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

Subscriber Identification Modules (SIMs) and Machine Identification Modules (MIM™), also known as Universal Integrated Circuit Cards (UICC), are an essential component of cellular connected devices that identify and authenticate individual devices and users to Mobile Network Operators (MNOs). Traditionally, these components are specific to individual MNOs and are inserted into the connected device by the end user after deciding on a preferred carrier. However, industrial and professional Machine-to-Machine (M2M) devices, such as those used for telematics applications and an increasing number of connected consumer devices, require the benefits of an embedded SIM or MIM™ which is integrated deep inside the device during manufacturing. Consequently, embedded UICCs (eUICC) have mandated more complex manufacturing and logistics process because the SIM can no longer be added at the last stage of deployment.

Making Machines More Connected and Intelligent

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

It’s no secret that technology is dramatically transforming the manufacturing arena. We’re witnessing a new industrial revolution, led by a dynamic set of trends and pushed forward by digital disruptors. The ground is shifting beneath manufacturers - and the companies that build the machines they use. One new emerging area that promises to deliver powerful new capabilities to both manufacturers and to the machine builders that supply them is connected machines. Connected machines use Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to connect machines and factory robots beyond the plant floor, all the way to the machine builders that created them.
