WSN Trends: Sensor Infrastructure Virtualization as a Driver Towards the Evolution of the Internet of Things

March 1, 2016

The rapid proliferation in the number of devices connected to the Internet that occurred during the last decade is expected to continue, targeting yet another order of magnitude increase and promising to bring people and processes in the equation. However, in order to realize this paradigm shift, important challenges with respect to scalability, cooperative communications, energy consumption, as well convergence of sensor and analytics trends need to be addressed. In this paper we have elaborated on the different flavors of Sensor Infrastructure Virtualization as a powerful enabler that can pave the way towards the Future Internet.

Application Development for the IoT Era

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

Wind River Helix App Cloud helps developers meet the challenges and opportunities of IoT. By abstracting away complexity, the App Cloud development environment helps IoT product teams focus on just the application level, removing the need for platform-level considerations such as maintaining operating systems, drivers, and toolchains for a potentially enormous set of IoT devices. Dramatically simplifying the development experience and allowing customization across simulated or physical devices, App Cloud promises to help device makers scale their resources more efficiently and more quickly build IoT applications.

A Database Platform for the Internet of Things

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

We think of the Internet of Things (IOT) as new and dramatic. And indeed, no doubt its impact will soon be dramatic, but it is not as new as many people suppose. In respect to consumerfacing technology, we can trace the IOT back to the invention of ATMs in the late 1960s, nearly 50 year ago. True, we are pushing the definition of IOT here. The first ATMs were not connected, and their connected use only became widespread in the 1980s – and even then, although it was a connected device, it initially only qualified as an Intranet of Things. Other such early applications included control systems in semi-automated factories. Sensors were placed at key points on production lines and would monitor activity in order to optimize the speed of the production line. These were the first real-time systems, and they were also implemented in chemical plants and oil refineries. RFID tags also emerged sooner than one might imagine, invented in 1973 and deployed in limited applications soon afterwards. They too became part of the early IOT.

Blockchain and global challenges: A Roadmap for NGOs

whitePaper | November 12, 2018

Blockchains may improve any process where multiple parties need to access, verify, send or store information securely. This information could be a person’s identity, a product’s supply-chain history, a digital asset like money, or an algorithm (a ‘smart contract’) which automates a contractual relationships between parties. Traditional, centralised, databases can also store such information, but are opaque and vulnerable to unauthorised access, distribution or deletion.

The last 4G technology jump before 5G: What LTE-Advanced Pro means for the IoT

whitePaper |

Referred to by some as 4.5G, LTE-Advanced Pro includes more mature versions of features that were introduced in previous releases and, at the same time, starts to address many of the requirements for 5G. It establishes a broad, all-encompassing communication system that not only offers faster data rates but also supports many more types of devices, all operating online at once, with much lower latency.
