Smart transportation is one of the areas in which Internet of Things (IoT) deployments can achieve measurable impacts on consumers’ lives and enable cost savings and operational efficiencies to be achieved by fleet operators. These benefits, of course, feed down across all forms of commerce as transport is made more efficient, and environmental impacts are reduced, thanks to optimised [...]
The Internet of Transportation Things expands the addressable market for fleet management. The commercial fleet management (FM) market is impacted by a number of trends, including several developments that can alter the market conditions for solution providers and associated players in the coming years. Multiple parallel market and technology shifts that are currently transforming the [...]
How to select the right IoT platform. For an increasing number of businesses, IoT is rapidly moving from a nice-to-have to a strategic necessity. At its simplest, an IoT solution provides the opportunity to save operational costs, introduce new service revenue opportunities, or help to ensure compliance with new regulations, writes Robin Duke-Woolley.
In practice, IoT [...]

One of the main challenges in the Industrial IoT (IIoT) is that devices are deployed for long periods of time in environments that cannot be described as classically secure. The access control that is in place for many other types of devices is typically not present in IIoT devices because these end points are exposed to the outside world. IIoT devices therefore need to be protected from [...]
With interest in IoT reaching fever pitch, much attention and thought is being focussed on the benefits of having hundreds and thousands, if not millions of connected devices across the world. However, far less attention and thought is being given to how these devices will be managed; an issue that is of paramount importance, particularly to the industrial [...]
As the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to mature, organisations deploying IoT services face many IoT connectivity challenges. On the technical side, coverage challenges include achieving localised indoor coverage in dense urban situations such as urban canyons, providing reliable connections where there are gaps in cellular network coverage in rural locations, and ensuring multi-country [...]
Although much of the developments in Internet of Things (IoT) have focused on hardware and connectivity – the things and the internet – it’s actually software in the form of applications, management systems and analytics tools that holds the key to unlocking value from the infrastructure.

Optimise performance in manufacturing with industrial IoT.
Global manufacturing faces an increasing set of challenges in growth, innovation and competition. Globally, gross domestic product (GDP) was at US$30.69 trillion in 1995. By 2014, global GDP reached a new peak at US$78 trillion. As a percentage of global GDP, manufacturing dropped its share from 21.4% in 1995 to 14.7% in [...]
