1. IOT COMPONENTS


One of the value power sources for an IoT application is external data, that when piped in, can be used to augment its functionality. Of all sources of external data, weather is probably the most ubiquitous and useful. Like many data services, the API is built on a tiered billing system. Come in for free as a developer or hobbyist but once you get over 500 hits per day you start paying.

Episode 22

How much IoT data should you keep? It’s not clear. The more data you keep, the more data transmission and storage costs you’ll incur. However thinning out your data store means throwing away potential future insights, potential answers to future questions and potential new information products to expand your business – all value generators unique to IoT products.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Steve Stover about balancing the costs and the technology approaches to maximize your Internet of Things data value ...


All incremental value from an IoT product comes from its virtualized representation, what I call the software-define product (SDP). Broaden this concept and you have software-defined manufacturing (SDM) which is the superset of all SDPs it produces. Abstracted, a factory is just a highly complex product so incorporating and advancing it with the Internet of Things is the future.

Episode 21

On the surface, building your own IoT cloud seems pretty straightforward, but brush away some of the fluff and you’ll find the non-trivial issues of data velocity, message processing, scalability, redundancy and robustness.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Dan Collins, its differences with the IT cloud and the issues to consider when building or buying ...


In addition to the technical considerations and price, compare the development support system in place for each manufacturer when shopping for your embedded wireless solution. How mature is the software development kit (SDK) and hardware platform? How broad is the ecosystem of development partners and is there an online forum or will you get 1:1 attention?

Episode 20

To go beyond connectivity, the IoT Platform must abstract all components of the Internet of Things product or environment into a form that can be computed and interfaced with the app, model and analytics. I call this the software-defined product, or in the case of home automation, the software-defined home.

Episode 19

The “IoT Platform” is such an overloaded term that its meaning has been lost. Chipset manufacturers, sensor manufacturers, software vendors, consortia and system integrators all have their own definitions. But if you come at it from enough angles eventually a form takes shape and you realize it means what you want it to mean and what is important is not its definition but the context in which it’s used.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Dr. Sean Lorenz and I as we go through the elusive IoT platform and why the business problem is always the place to start ...


OT doesn’t care about networking, Operations just wants to get data from one place to another. And since hardware in OT only gets refreshed every 15-20 years, it’s important to architect your solution in components.
Watch this video (or read the transcript) to hear Patrick Grossetete explain best practices in OT networking and the biggest differences in networking between Consumer IoT and Industrial IoT ...




Episode 18

It’s a heck of a lot easier than it used to be but most IoT projects still involve custom system integration – the question now is how much. Although the definition of an IoT platform, or AEP, is not always clear, what is clear is that using a platform saves a lot of time and a lot of system integration work. There may be legitimate reasons to develop your own platform in house but by definition, this means you become a software company – big time.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Bryan Kester to get his take on what an IoT platform is, the technologies involved and a candid view on the strengths and weaknesses of IoT platforms today ...


This interview was from the gogoNET LIVE! 4 conference. Joachim keynoted with the presentation, “IoT needs IP and IPv6 will drive IoT”, making the argument that for IoT to grow and reach its full potential it has to move away from proprietary siloed technologies and rest on IPv6.
Watch this video (or read the transcript) to hear Joachim Lindborg’s perspective on how he believes IPv6 will be the killer app in the connected home by enabling interconnectivity between all devices ...
