Virtualization and the Internet of Things

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

"Industrial control devices have been around for years. The initial devices were manufacturedwith a personality, a business logic that was already built in when they left the manufacturingplant to perform one fixed function (and nothing else). They were deployed for specifictasks such as controlling industrial equipment, electricity generation, power plants, trains, planes, or automobiles.But times have changed. Today, devices are shipped comparatively bare and are then given a personality through software download from USB devices, flash cards, or otherprogramming over some form of connection. These more generic devices can bemanufactured with a limited set of functionality and given more content during deploymentby a system integrator.Responding to and driving these developments, technology for industrial control devices has also changed dramatically in recent years—from 8-bit to 64-bit processors, frommicro-controllers to multi-core—and now the Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the gameagain. As device manufacturers aim to take advantage of the opportunities created byIoT, one new technology is embedded virtualization. This paper discusses how embeddedvirtualization enables the device flexibility and security required for IoT. "

SMART NETWORKED OBJECTS &  INTERNET OF THINGS

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

The continuous progress in microelectronics and networking techniques make it now possible to envisage networks formed by the interconnection of smart ‘network enabled’ objects and the secure and efficient deployment of services on top of them. This is the vision of the Internet of Things. We now see the deployment of a new generation of networked objects with communication, sensory and action capabilities (wireless information transport networks, RFID, WSAN, etc.) for numerous applications. But the interconnection of objects having advanced processing and connection capabilities is expected to lead to a revolution in terms of service creation and availability and will profoundly change the way we interact with the environment. In short the physical world will merge with the digital/virtual world.

Unlocking the Value of the Internet of Things (IoT) – A Platform Approach

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

The Internet has been in existence for over forty years and the term ‘Internet of Things’ has been in use since the large scale adoption of RFID began a decade ago. So what is creating this new excitement about IoT? There are several factors. Today you have low cost but highly capable sensors, and advances in wired and wireless communication technology and network protocols that permit you to better connect sensors to the Internet. You have an array of tools, platforms, and analysis techniques that can process large amounts of sensor data and present meaningful insights. You can send data and receive insights through various devices such as your mobile phone, a tablet on your fridge, your car, or your computer. A close connection between things and humans, the cyber world and the physical world, has thus been established via sensors and devices. And that is why the potential for transformation is immense. Every industry will create new business models and offer new services to customers with the Internet of Things.

Cisco Kinetic for Manufacturing

whitePaper | August 12, 2018

For decades, manufacturing businesses have relied on connected machines and the correlating data to help streamline operations. Now, innovative Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are taking machine data to unprecedented new levels but also introducing a whole new landscape of challenges in data management, analysis and governance. Whether you’re a machine builder, system integrator, or manufacturer machine data is your lifeline to higher productivity and profitability. Yet with IoT, you’ll now face a tsunami of data generated from connected devices. Massive volumes of intermittent data streams, coming from a variety of legacy and new machines, with new requirements for internal and external data sharing.

Standardized Identity Protocols and the Internet of Things

whitePaper |

Today, device-to-device interactions are becoming more and more prevalent in the form of smart devices that can act on behalf of users. But in this Internet of Things without the watchful eye of people, how do these smart devices authenticate each other? How do they know that the interactions happening are between trusted devices?Like humans, devices have identities in the IoT, and they need to ensure secure and trusted interactions.

The Internet of Things: Making sense of the next mega-trend

whitePaper |

The Internet of Things (IoT) is emerging as the third wave in the development of the Internet. The 1990s’ fixed Internet wave connected 1 billion users while the 2000s’ mobile wave connected another 2 billion. The IoT has the potential to connect 10X as many (28 billion) “things” to the Internet by 2020, ranging from bracelets to cars. The global industrial sector is poised to undergo a fundamental structural change akin to the industrial revolution as we usher in the IoT. Equipment is becoming more digitized and more connected, establishing networks between machines, humans, and the Internet, leading to the creation of new ecosystems that enable higher productivity, better energy efficiency, and higher profitability.
