If I say Sony, I’d bet the first subjects that come to your mind are not healthcare or logistics management. Yet these are two key areas that Sony’s Sweden-based Internet of Things (IoT) team focused on at the recent IoT Solutions World Congress (IOTSWC18) in Barcelona, as Jeremy Cowan reports.
After months of speculation on the name, the colour, the features and the price, Apple’s September event finally revealed its latest line-up of handsets. Since then, there’s one feature in particular that has continued to generate further chatter in the telecoms industry: the eSIM.
Kevin Ashton has been an executive director and visiting engineer at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he led work on the next generation of computing. Perhaps more importantly for this report, says Jeremy Cowan, he is the man who coined the term the ‘Internet of Things’.
It’s no accident that the promise of the IoT has been slower than the headline Hungry tech media has reported over the years. Several factors – including security and privacy concerns, lack of interoperability, and poor network performance – have left consumers uncertain.
The security industry is facing a huge problem and one, which until recently, looked intractable. There are just not enough cyber security operatives in the world’s Security Operations Centres (SOCs)
The Internet of Things (IoT) is an increasingly important technology element for companies of nearly all sectors and around the world. For many firms it has become one of the pillars of their digitalisation strategy, promising the enablement of new business cases such as predictive maintenance, fleet management, infrastructure monitoring or analytics-based process optimisation.
We live in a new sensing world enabled by low-cost sensors. The explosion of data-emitting sensors is flooding organisations with potentially valuable new inputs. Sensor data, and the need to easily collect, understand and automate actions based on it, are rapidly propelling the next wave of IoT automation.
In recent years the telecoms industry has scrutinised, debated, forecast and developed a huge variety of IoT use cases, as well as outlining the benefits they promise business, industry and society, and the opportunities for monetisation they present to a sector undergoing radical digitalisation.
As technology expands, we’ve begun to enter an entirely new realm where staying connected 24/7 is the norm. This digital revolution also affects the way companies are doing business.
