IoT Gateways Ride on the Cloud, Opening up IoT Applications

March 1, 2016

The Internet of Things (IoT), big data, and cloud open up various smart applications from smart homes, smart factories, smart cities, to homeland security and disaster prevention and management, which are all concerned with the quality of life and the safety of property.Abound IoT applications like preventive maintenance that helps factories boost production efficiency or environmental monitoring in rural areas for homeland security have instilled energy to verticals. “When IoT is applied from cities to remote areas in various environments, in order to generate the best values, one must customize accordingly for tight integration,” said YC Cheng, Assistant VP of NEXCOM’s IoT Automation Solutions Group.

The RTOS as the engine powering the Internet of Things

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

"Driven by the convergence of cloud technology, rapidly growing data volumes, and increasinglyconnected devices, the Internet of Things (IoT) poses new challenges andpresents a host of new opportunities that businesses of all sizes and industries can seize right now. This system-of-systems is fundamental to realizing business value—unlockingthe insight hidden in data, identifying and creating new services, enhancing productivityand efficiency, improving real-time decision making, solving critical problems, and developing new and innovative user experiences. Billions of intelligent devices andsystems make up IoT. The majority of these “things” are embedded systems, many ofwhich are running a real-time operating system (RTOS). This paper outlines the criticalfeatures and characteristics an RTOS must have in order to meet the specific challengesand realize the enormous opportunities of IoT."

Realizing the Promise of the Internet of Things

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

Many technology trends remain hype and rarely make it to the realm of our everyday reality. Internet of Things (IoT) started off as being futuristic, something to be aspired to, but difficult to apply in the way we live or run businesses. However, today organizations are slowly uncovering the potential of connected devices and sensors that communicate and interact with each other. Organizations are discovering ways to generate business value from IoT, thanks to the proliferation of cloud based services and analytics. The quality of real-time information from IoT related technologies will take the guesswork out of decision-making. And yet, despite the myriad opportunities it offers, IoT adoption has been relatively slow till date. This could be due to the lack of preparedness by businesses with respect to the infrastructure and processes required to deploy – and realize the full potential of – this disruptive technology.
