As 5G arrives, we’re in the midst of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, surfing the third wave of digitalisation, becoming acquainted with digital twins and expecting unified experiences across platforms and networks, writes George Malim
These are all transforming not only technology but society. In this issue of IoT Now we look at how network capacity for IoT has been transformed by new business models as well as the flexibility and simplicity that embedded SIM cards (eSIMs) are introducing. This provides a connectivity foundation on which IoT can build attractive services rapidly.
We also focus on Industrial IoT, reporting on Nokia’s enablement of its Oulu, Finland facility with IoT capabilities for manufacturing as well as a speciallycommissioned analyst report on the convergence of operational technologies with IT from IoT Analytics.
In terms of real, IoT deployments we profile Sierra Wireless’ smart biowaste management deployment with Axibio, and look at how industrial plants are using IoT gateways. Finally, we include a whitepaper on IoT in the automotive industry.
It’s clear from all of this that ways of working, methods of production, procurement and sales are all changing and this affects all enterprises, not just those that are already deriving clear benefits from the Internet of Things.
With this in mind, WeKnow, the publisher of IoT Now, is delighted to announce the launch of The Evolving Enterprise, a brand new digital title looking at the growing pains and success stories of the transforming enterprise. The Evolving Enterprise at www.TheEE.io will cover all the current and emerging technologies that are fuelling the evolution of enterprises and we look forward to welcoming IoT Now readers to this indispensable new resource.
