Vodafone IoT Barometer 2017/18

With the Barometer entering its fifth year, it seemed like a good time to review how far the Internet of Things (IoT) has come since the first edition and to look forward to what’s in store for the next five years. What we found was adopters are pushing ahead with their plans, with IoT seen as critical to success.

Internet of Things (IoT) 2018 – Market Statistics, Use Cases and Trends

whitePaper | December 15, 2017

The Internet of Things (IoT) is essentially a system of machines or objects outfitted with data-collecting technologies so that those objects can communicate with one another. The machine-to-machine (M2M) data that is generated has a wide range of u uses, but is commonly seen as a way to determine the health and status of things –inanimate or living.

PACIFIC CONTROLS ROAD MAP FOR SMART PERVASIVE SYSTEMS

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

M2M applications have evolved in a context where applications such as remote monitoring and support for equipment have been tied closely to equipment services contracts To date, remote services and M2M systems have largely been focused on simple remote diagnostics and simple tracking/ location services – in large part because of technical complexities and business model challenges (see below) Existing technology has proven cumbersome and costly to apply with many conflicting protocols and incomplete component-based solutions The challenges of developing applications and integrating diverse devices onto networks in an interoperable manner have been big adoption hurdles The inability of today’s popular enterprise IT systems to interoperate with distributed heterogeneous device environments is an obstacle that we are finally overcoming.

An Internet of Things Reference Architecture

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

The Internet of Things (IoT) already helps billions of people. Thousands of smart, connected devices deliver new experiences to people throughout the world, lowering costs, sometimes by billions of dollars. Examples include connected cars, robotic manufacturing, smarter medical equipment, smart grid, and countless industrial control systems. Unfortunately, this growth in connected devices brings increased security risks. Threats quickly evolve to target this rich and vulnerable landscape. Serious risks include physical harm to people, prolonged downtime, and damage to equipment such as pipelines, blast furnaces, and power generation facilities. As several such facilities and IoT systems have already been attacked and materially damaged, security must now be an essential consideration for anyone making or operating IoT devices or systems, particularly for the industrial Internet.

Security Threats on National Defense ICT based on IoT

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

. In this paper, we drew new security threats on IoT (Internet of Thing) based modern battlefield (Network centric battlefield). DoD is focusing its attention on the development of unmanned combat systems to prepare for future war. The IoT technology provides networking service to connect each other unmanned combat system. IoT has the security vulnerabilities of each element of the technology itself because the technology integrates several components to configure a specific service. And new security vulnerabilities will be caused when they are interconnecting. In military information communication technology, we should concern in four perspectives; illegal remote control, information leakage, false information insert, and signal disturbance
