Top Ten Security Considerations for the Internet of Things

The promise of the IoT is beginning to emerge, and will increasingly become part of our daily lives. As discussed, this evolution comes with numerous security challenges that go beyond Web security issues of the past. These security issues can and must be mitigated if the IoT is to deliver on its promise of networked objects. To fulfil this promise, the “thingfrastructure” that enables IoT must be deployed using an API gateway that enables enterprises to layer-on the necessary security. The Internet of Things (IoT) is an industry megatrend that promises to open up new ways of doing business and communicating. The core difference between Internet of Things and previous computing revolutions is that in earlier transformations the human user has typically been the catalyst – we go to our PC to do some work; we go to the Web to research or to check email.

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.

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.

Internet of Things for Telecom Engineers

whitePaper | February 11, 2020

The Internet of Things (IoT) is no longer the future: it is the new reality moving telecommunications forward. The IoT enables physical objects to see, hear, think, and perform jobs by having them “talk” to each other, share information, and coordinate decisions. The number of internet-enabled objects has surpassed the Earth’s population. Today, the IoT connects everything from HVAC thermostats and smart homes to transportation, healthcare, industrial automation, and emergency response equipment. As the prevalence of IoT innovations grow, telecom leaders must embrace the opportunities, and challenges, posed by a more connected future.

Empowering DSOs to secure the Smart Grid

whitePaper | February 6, 2020

As the world’s growing need for energy meets the power of the Internet of Things, the traditional energy marketplace is rapidly transforming. Millions of meters and energy assets are connected and digitized each year, providing enormous benefits to the entire ecosystem: real time tracking of energy production and consumption data, optimized load balancing systems, streamlined operations and billing systems to name a few. As connectivity expands and the landscape is digitalizing, new distributed energy resources (DERs) and stakeholders are able to integrate into and expand the grid. DERs offer non-carbon resources that improve the energy sector’s overall carbon footprint, a key benefit for everyone.
