IoT Identifier Service based-Public Food QualitySafety Traceability Platform and its Social Impacts

March 1, 2016

Recently, emerging technologies are developing rapidly, especially in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) field. Concepts such as mobile and wireless, big data and analytics, cloud computing and internet of things, have all been blossoming in the past few years. Also, under the informatization circumstances, traditional industries, such as equipment manufacturing, raw material and consumer goods industries, are facing multiple challenges related to ICT applications. Hence, it is expected that the ICT technologies should and would play important roles in boosting competitiveness for traditional industries and enterprises. Specifically, the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, such as sensors, tags, RFID, embedded system and M2M, are becoming relevant and having high-impacts on industrial applications. According to Gartner's Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies 2013, IoT passed the technology trigger period in 2012 and reached at the peak of expectations period in 2013 . Thereby, collaboration of IoT technologies and traditional industries has the potential to satisfy practical requirements and bring benefits for those industries.

Building New Business Models for the Internet of Things

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

By facilitating real-time data gathering and analysis, the Internet of Things (IoT) is disrupting existing business models. The influence of the IoT spans a wide range of industries, and it is set to make a bigger impact on the way organizations conduct business than any other recent technological revolution. Organizations that recognize the potential of the IoT and strategize accordingly stand to gain immense long-term benefits from the investment. However, it is not the magnitude of the investment that will determine the long-term success of the organization. Instead, what the organization invests in and how it changes the way it does business is what will make for competitive advantage. This paper explores the two sets of organizations that participate in an IoT ecosystem — the primary and the secondary. It also discusses ways in which primary as well as secondary participants can benefit from an IoT economy.

Securing Devices in Advanced Metering Infrastructures

whitePaper | January 8, 2020

Smart grid managers and Head End System (HES) vendors depend on data to drive their business. Receiving and analyzing accurate data from grid endpoints - the smart meters - is the main element that determines business success. Their customers, Distribution System Operators (DSOs) and Advanced Metering Infrastructures (AMI) managers, then use this data for crucial processes: monitoring energy demand and production, load shifting to maintain a persistent grid balance at all times and billing customers. Each tiny bit of data is the starting point for monetization and asset management and it must be accurate and trusted in order to keep power flowing.

Internet of Things for Defense

whitePaper |

The Internet of Things (IoT) is today’s commercial effort to integrate a wide variety of technical and commercial information-generating components to provide new business opportunities based upon device and system intelligence. This technology is the largescale commercialization of technology that has been developed and proven by the U.S. Department of Defense over the past fifteen years. In much the same way as NASA and the early space program in the 1960s spurred innovations in chip technology, automation, propulsion, and miniaturization that developed into innovative consumer products, solutions developed from the concept of network-centric warfare translate directly to the foundations of today’s commercial IoT.

Smart systems and Internet of Things forecast

whitePaper |

The realization of pervasive smart systems will involve billions upon billions of protean network nodes that ultimately “take on a life of their own.” Our present-day conception of “intelligent devices” and global data networking does not allow for that. Until we change that situation, we will not achieve the emergent magic implied by the phrase “the Internet of Things. ”Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and the new world of Smart Systems are ushering in an era where people, machines, devices, sensors, and businesses are all connected and able to interact with one another. As these previously disaggregated parties come together, new modes of collaboration and intelligence will abound fostering a trend that we call “Smart Business”. M2M is merely the starting point. The development of Smart Systems and Services will enable a truly connected “Smart World”.
