Virtualization and the Internet of Things

March 1, 2016

"Industrial control devices have been around for years. The initial devices were manufactured with a personality, a business logic that was already built in when they left the manufacturing plant to perform one fixed function (and nothing else). They were deployed for specific tasks 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 other programming over some form of connection. These more generic devices can be manufactured with a limited set of functionality and given more content during deployment by 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, from micro-controllers to multi-core—and now the Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the game again. As device manufacturers aim to take advantage of the opportunities created by IoT, one new technology is embedded virtualization. This paper discusses how embedded virtualization enables the device flexibility and security required for IoT. "

"Technology Vision: Networks that deliver Gigabytes per user per day profitably and securely"

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

"The demand for mobile data is unstoppable, with a doubling of traffic everyyear for the past three years, as shown by measurements from more than120 operators using Nokia’s networks. This means traffic has increased almostten-fold since 2010 and we expect the trend to continue over the next fiveyears to 2020. Today, some mature markets are seeing 2 GB of data permonth per user, with a 15-fold increase likely by 2020."
