INDUSTRIAL IOT


The biggest shift for traditional companies becoming IoT companies is transitioning into an Information Technology company. IoT technology isn’t plug ‘n’ play but it can be built. More difficult is changing a company’s culture to revolve around the information.

After going through each of the major consortia, we are heading back to tech, but not as deep a dive as usual. Having left the edge behind, we are now moving on to the network fabric that holds everything together.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Bryan Kester of SeeControl, Steve Jennis of PrismTech, Justin Buchanan of Cisco and Brandon Harris of Electric Imp as we talk about some of the most important issues surrounding IoT Platforms today ...


Although these are still early days in IoT deployments, the benefits of fog computing are already coming into focus. As deployment scale goes up, so too does the amount of data captured and the volume can quickly become overwhelming. Depending on the scale, running security, local analytics and data optimization closer to the sensors can be beneficial.

The AllSeen Alliance gets a lot of press but it’s still mostly misunderstood. For most its name is synonymous with home IoT but that’s only the first step in a broader vision that encompasses consumer, commercial, industrial and infrastructure IoT. It’s currently focused on home automation because that’s the current focus of its members. But this will change over time.

Backhaul solutions for the Internet of Things are getting more sophisticated and Stream Technologies is a good example. Customers will buy connectivity from Stream to abstract their backhaul network so they don’t need to concern themselves with different mobile and satellite operators and their different contracts and pricing.

No one company is big enough to provide an end-to-end industrial Internet of Things solution. Realizing this, ATT, Cisco, GE, IBM and Intel came together to found the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC). The end game however is not technology, but business – to understand what is needed to put together solutions that not only work well, but sell well.

Janusz Bryzek is a man on a mission. A mission to cure world hunger and eliminate the lack of global medical care, clean air, clean water and clean energy within 20 years. That’s all. He’s doing his part with his Trillion Sensors Initiative to realize one of the eight technologies required to bring about “abundance” as defined by visionary Peter Diamantis.
Watch this video (or read the transcript)to understand what abundance is and the role the Internet of Things plays in it ...

There’s a symbiotic partnership between standards organizations, like the IETF and IEEE, and the non-profit alliances, groups and IoT consortia. The IoT industry needs standards but sometimes the standards organizations, when left to their own devices, can be guilty of satisfying only the vendors’ needs who are on the committees or being too broad, satisfying everyone but producing nothing of value. The non-profit IoT consortia play a major role in driving requirements for these standards and their subsequent testing, certification and marketing. The grey zone is when the consortia get into the standards game. There’s value in making “standards” of standards but it can also be detrimental to the industry at large when they are not made open to the public.
