Mobile IoT in the 5G future

May 12, 2018

Leading mobile operators, global vendors and developers are launching NB-IoT and LTE-M networks as an integral part of their long term 5G IoT strategies. Mobile IoT refers to low power wide area (LPWA) 3GPP standardised secure operator managed IoT networks in licensed spectrum. In particular, networks designed for IoT applications that are low cost, use low data rates, require long battery lives and often operate in remote and hard to reach locations. Existing cellular networks are evolving to deliver service to billions of new devices providing complete IoT connectivity in the 5G era.

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.

TURNING THE INTERNET OF THINGS INTO REALITY

whitePaper | January 15, 2020

The prospects are exciting. By enhancing resources with IoT, employees and organizations generate new value. Notable examples include improved air quality in cities and increased availability and reliability of rail vehicles of up to 99%. Other IoT implementations cut non-technical power losses in half, saving $150 million for an electric utilities company in Brazil, and reduce delivery days in electronics manufacturing from 25 to less than 7, improving quality at the same time.

Tailoring IoT platforms to the requirements of specific use cases

whitePaper | April 13, 2021

The Internet of Things has evolved in the last 10-15 years from a long-term visionary idea to our current reality, present in more and more domains of our everyday lives. Many IoT architectures and platforms are being proposed today by various academic and industrial consortia, in domains as diverse as smart manufacturing, smart homes, smart cities or smart transport, to name just a few. These different IoT platforms have many things in common, as they all rely on connecting some smart sensor and actuator devices to each other and to the Internet, providing value-added services and applications to us, human users, either directly, or in an indirect manner. However, by closely analyzing their structure and operational focus, we can observe that these IoT architectures and platforms have also special features tailored to the requirements of different use cases.

Industrial Internet of Thing

whitePaper | January 2, 2020

The brief report provides a positioning of developments in the area referred to as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) – loosely interpreting this as the industrial developments associated with the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT in turn describes the extension of the application of internet communications beyond computers and networked devices to also include the networking of everyday objects. In the context of industrial operations these objects are typically equipment, products and raw materials.
