Identity and access management (IAM) is now recognised as a capability that providers of Internet of Things (IoT) services need to address if they are to offer secure services. After all, finds George Malim, if you can’t control access to a device or service, you can’t secure it.
Industry projections for over-the-air (OTA) vehicle data management suggest the technology could save automakers US$35 billion over the next five years. That’s a big claim.
Sukamal Banerjee is corporate vice president and head of the IoT WoRKS business unit at HCL Technologies. Here, he tells IoT Now that, as organisations turn to IoT platforms they are finding ways to generate sustainable business value from their IoT adoptions.
Digital twins are not a new thing. Companies have been using a virtual representation of a physical asset for years, but it’s only with the Internet of Things (IoT) that they’ve become truly accessible and cost-effective, writes Maurizio Canton
As IoT deployments accelerate, an area of growing concern is security. The likelihood of billions of additional connections and the proliferation of endpoint devices in the form of IoT modules, sensors and other equipment is radically increasing the threat surface that organisations need to defend, writes Dr Mihai Voicu
The Internet of Things (IoT) vision can become reality, enabling the large spectrum of opportunities the industry is imagining, only if it is designed with a security-centric framework. Security is the indispensable prerequisite for the development of the IoT. This sentiment is shared by the entire IoT community, from the IoT solution and technology providers to the adopters, from the [...]
As low power wide area (LPWA) radio technologies and LoRa WAN in particular start to take off organisations are benefiting from wider connectivity choices and reduced barriers to entry. These new connectivity options are vital to stimulate further utilisation of IoT, Stream Technologies’ Mohsen Shakoor and Niall Strachan tell George Malim
Smart energy relies on Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to change the consumption habits of users and enable energy providers to gain efficiencies while boosting their environmental credentials, writes Emmanuel Maçon-Dauxerre.
VoLTE has already proven to be a success, at least in terms of market penetration, writes Robert Eriksson. An ever-growing number of communications service provider (CSPs) have deployed VoLTE as a voice service overlay for their LTE networks, offering enhanced service quality.
