The Industrial Internet of Things is Really Control Networking 2.0

March 1, 2016

Distinct from the human IoT—in which human users are integral to the interaction with the Internet—the industrial IoT (IIoT) requires industrial-strength reliability, hardened security, and both wired and wireless connectivity. And despite the “Internet” part of its name, the IIoT is not just about sending data to the cloud. Within the IIoT are autonomous communities of devices able to take action directly, without mediation through a centralized cloud infrastructure. All of this raises an important question: Is the IIoT something fundamentally different from the control networking that’s been evolving for the past 25 years or so, and which is familiar to anyone working with the LONWORKS® control networking platform? The answer is no. The IIoT is really the next generation, or version 2.0, of traditional control networking.

Profitable Connections: The Money to be Made by Banks in the Internet of Things

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

Money may be an abstract ’entity’, but there are many things connected to it that banks can digitize, measure, and analyze to drive profits. The physical things a bank provides (branches, ATMs, mobile apps, and so on) connect to the physical things a customer has (say, mobile devices and wearables) while conducting financial transactions (such as a purchase, a home mortgage, a car loan, or an equipment lease). It’s clear that banks have only just begun to mine these items and their multiplying connections, to engage effectively with customers and establish newer business models for profitable growth.

The Internet of Things and connected cars

whitePaper |

In the two decades since OnStar was formed as a collaboration between General Motors (GM), Hughes Electronics, and EDS (acquired by HPE in 2008), connectivity-based automotive technology has become increasingly ubiquitous. Beyond the basic concept of a connected vehicle equipped with Internet access, new markets have emerged, such as Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I), Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Cloud (V2C), Vehicle-to-Pedestrian (V2P), and Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X).

MEC in 5G networks

whitePaper | June 29, 2018

Edge computing as an evolution of cloud computing brings application hosting from centralized data centres down to the network edge, closer to consumers and the data generated by applications. Edge computing is acknowledged as one of the key pillars for meeting the demanding Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) of 5G, especially as far as low latency and bandwidth efficiency are concerned. However, not only is edge computing in telecommunications networks a technical enabler for the demanding KPIs, it also plays an essential role in the transformation of the telecommunications business, where telecommunications networks are turning into versatile service platforms for industry and other specific customer segments. This transformation is supported by edge computing, as it opens the network edge for applications and services, including those from third parties.

Study of Security Issues in Pervasive Environment of Next Generation Internet of Things

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

Internet of Things is a novel concept that semantically implies a world-wide network of uniquely addressable interconnected smart objects. It is aimed at establishing any paradigm in computing. This environment is one where the boundary between virtual and physical world is eliminated. As the network gets loaded with hitherto unknown applications, security threats also become rampant. Current security solutions fail as new threats appear to destruct the reliability of information. The network has to be transformed to IPv6 enabled network to address huge number of smart objects. Thus new addressing schemes come up with new attacks. Real time analysis of information from the heterogeneous smart objects needs use of cloud services. This can fall prey to cloud specific security threats. Therefore need arises for a review of security threats for a new area having huge demand. Here a study of security issues in this domain is briefly presented.
