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?
Watch this video (or read the transcript) to hear Brian Bedrosian explain best practices and trends in the embedded wireless market and the ecosystem needed to be successful ...




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 ...




Episode 17

Because of the technology and data available, the biggest and most interesting challenge in designing an IoT product is to make it feel more like a service or experience, than a piece of hardware. Only after you understand the customer and what the opportunities really are can product design begin.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Gordon Hui to get an uber designer’s perspective on how to find that ideal product experience and the business that must be developed to support it ...


Timeslotted Channel Hopping (TSCH), via IEEE 802.15.4e, is an emerging standard in industrial automation and process control (via Wireless HART and ISA 100.11a) that defines a communication schedule between neighbor nodes in Low-power and Lossy Networks (LLNs). In an effort to bridge the worlds of operational technology (OT) with information technology (IT), the 6TSCH working group has been established to define how to use IPv6 over the 15.4e.
Watch this video (or read the transcript) to hear Xavi Villajosana explain how 15.4e operates and what’s still missing in the complete OT/IT stack ...


Internet of Things enterprise security needs to be approached holistically across the IoT cloud, network and end devices. Make security part of the plan from the start of the project. Divide responsibilities among the internal team and external partners and hold everyone accountable. Just a few pieces of advice from this video.
Watch this video (or read the transcript) to hear Justin Buchanan’s top 3 enterprise security risks today ...




Episode 15

Getting an IoT project off the ground isn’t easy. It’s not just about launching a new product based on new technology, it’s the changes the organization must make to reach escape velocity.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Asaf Sadowski about the importance of creating an IoT proof of concept and the steps involved to get there ...
