Do you talk to your home? And more importantly, does it listen? Just a decade ago, these questions would have seemed absurd. Today, they reflect reality in millions of households around the world, as the Internet of Things expands into – and enables – a new generation of smart, connected buildings.
No serious business of any size underestimates their most important assets: customers. And most players, whether table-top entrepreneurs or international corporations, understand the role that effective data management plays in success.
The IoT facilitates automation in both these fields, so organizations can optimize processes in customer management and experience as well as [...]
From smart lights and home security systems to connected toasters.
Smart homes and home automation are ambiguous terms used in reference to a wide range of solutions for controlling, monitoring and automating functions in the home, writes Martin Bäckman, an IoT analyst at Berg Insight.
Smart home systems can be divided into point solutions and whole-home systems. Smart [...]
Motors are the largest consumer of electrical energy in heavy industry, devouring more than 90% of available power supply. They are the foundation of all industrial processes and directly impact electrical distribution and equipment which is why their design and optimisation is critical to everyone involved in the industrial sector, from end-users and design engineers to equipment [...]
With more devices connecting to the internet than ever before, the demands on bandwidth increase in parallel. For any organisation deploying IoT devices in the field, consideration needs to be given to the amount and frequency of data that will be transmitted from the device to the cloud for both cost and latency reasons.
Organisations should consider an optimum mechanism in [...]
To date, the development of the car has been shaped by the meeting of human and Industry 3.0 machine. That’s all changing, however, as the next generation of automotive transport involves the interface of artificial intelligence, machine learning, cellular vehicle-to-vehicle (C-V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (C-V2X) communications, and predictive analytics, to name just a few [...]
THE THREATS ARE GROWING
In the first steps on the road to digital transformation of the enterprise, a billion cellular IoT devices have already been connected worldwide. Yet this transformation is just getting going – billions more will follow and growth rates will remain high.
This rapid growth of connected devices is not all plain sailing – it brings with it new [...]
As Rami Avidan points out on page S5, much of the initial though behind IoT was that there would be one bearer or network technology for IoT traffic. It’s likely that many expected this to be a 3GPP standard, most likely 3G. However, as IoT – and network technologies – have matured, it has become clear that there will no single dominant bearer technology. Instead, [...]
