The IoT - is it the real thing? Article by Peter Cochrane

UNTIL recently the hottest topic was Big Data, now it appears to be the Internet of Things (IoT). Media driven hype, speculation, optimism, pessimism, and wild projections seem to rule. So, is there an actual need and a real IoT market? Will it all operate over 5G? And will we run out of wireless spectrum when we have more than 50 billion things on line? The answers have to be YES, NO and NO, and here are the reasons why.

The IoT is fundamental to realising sustainable societies. Continually polishing and improving our old industries and technologies with inefficient reuse, repurposing and recycling is not enough. That just p...Find out more...

    Does Anyone Really Care About The Internet Of Things? Article by Todd Hixon

    Last week’s Consumer Electronics Show (“CES”) put a spotlight on Internet of Things (“IOT”) technology and its leading application, the smart home. The term Internet of Things was coined 17 years ago and has had a couple of waves of enthusiasm in the past. Has it now arrived? I’m skeptical because I don’t yet see the killer app.

    I first heard the phrase Internet of Things (“IOT”) in 2000, from an entrepreneur out of the MIT Media Lab who was pitching a start-up to develop a networking technology to enable the IOT. That start-up became Ember and the technology evolved to ZigBee. In 2012 we sold Ember for about 8...Find out more...

M2M technology has evolved from telemetry which is a technology that allows the remote measurement and reporting of information of interest to the system operator. Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems are centralized systems that utilize telemetry to monitor and control remote facilities.

    SCADA, telemetry and M2M solutions can be found throughout the oil & gas value chain including applications such as drill and well monitoring, fiscal metering and pipeline monitoring. Today, M2M and tele...Find out more...


    The future of brands in a post-human world Article by Tracey Follows

    ears ago the purpose of a brand was clear and simple. It provided a mark of trust and quality. In a market with counterfeits and snake-oil salesmen, the brand was a mark of reputation and guaranteed a certain level of performance.

    During post-war Britain when products were still scarce due to rationing, no one could afford to waste money on a disreputable product. A host of household names asked consumers to put their trust in them, making them a regular item on their shopping list. Certainty and stability was what we were looking for and brands became part of that reassurance.

    Is the allure of the unicorn starving hardware companies of funding? Article by Graham Pitcher

    Unicorn companies – privately held tech start ups valued at more than $1billion – are becoming commonplace, it seems. It's a strange thing, because unicorns were so named because of their rarity.

    According to a list published by CB Insights, there are currently 131 unicorns, with a total value of $485bn. Top of the list is Uber, said to be worth $51bn, closely followed by Xiaomi, the Chinese hardware developer, at $46bn. At the other end of the scale are 38 companies with a valuation of $1bn.

    It’s been a long time coming, but M2M is breaking through Article by Graham Pitcher

    The recent spike of interest in all things to do with the Internet of Things masks the fact that this general move to improve connectivity between all kinds of 'things' has been slowly gathering momentum for at least 15 years.

    Originally, this technology was known as M2M – machine to machine – communications. When the concept of M2M first appeared, it often looked a technology ahead of its time, with issues surrounding cost, data rates and general applicability. But, slowly, M2M has gained ground.

    Internet Of Not-So-Smart Things: Samsung's Latest Smart Fridge Can Expose Your Gmail Password from the I'll-take-my-devices-stupid,-thanks dept

    The sometimes blisteringly-inane hype surrounding the "Internet of Things" appears to be on a collision course with the sophomoric security standards being employed in the field. As we've seen time and time again, companies were so bedazzled by the idea of connecting everything and anything to the Internet (your hat! your pants! your toilet!) they left device and network security as an afterthought -- if they could be bothered to think about it at all. The result has been smart TVs that share your personal conversations, vehicles that can easily be used to kill you, and a home full of devices leaking your daily habits.

    Machine to Machine (M2M) cellular modems form the bridge between Internet of Things (IoT) device and the internet using the 2G/3G/4G network. The modems typically connect with other systems including remote monitoring, vehicle telematics and other systems via RS232 serial connection (2G/GPRS) or USB (3G/4G modems) and connect to the internet over TCP/IP.

    Where will it be deployed?
    M2M modems are built around a GSM module which, for 2G/GPRS, will be developed for dual-band (900/1800MHz) or quad-band (850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900MHz) operation. Dual-band modems have limited coverage (e.g. Europe only) whereas quad-band...Find out more...

    It's all about the IoT The 'Internet of Things' is growing in stature, but what's it all about?

    Essentially, it's about machines communicating with other machines/devices for lots of purposes. This could be to increase a business’ profits/performance, reduce costs, improve efficiencies etc in many applications where remote deployments need to communicate with central hubs or monitoring locations.

    It relies on a communications infrastructure, like the cellular network, to provide a wireless link. Cellular connections must be robust as applications will be in areas like healthcare, where lives are at stake, or mission critical, like traffic control. It also means remote products can be updated whenever a process improvemen...Find out more...
