B&B Electronics has been in the sensor game for over 30 years and is now helping companies connect their sensors to the Internet of Things.
Watch this video (or read the transcript) to see Mike Fahrion explain the anatomy of the connected sensor and what to look out for when approaching this technology for the first time ...


An IoT platform is networking tech that collects and transmits data from and to remote devices and machines. It is often cloud-based and usually includes a rules engine for event processing and analytics apps to extract meaning and insights from what’s been collected.
Watch this video (or read the transcript) to get Bryan Kester’s advice, earned from working in the trenches every day with customers deploying their Internet of Things ...

No matter how we define sensor, we are a long way from a plug and play world. Except for the most rudimentary forms of sensing, you must be prepared to go custom-built. And if that’s the case you must have an understanding of the connected sensor and the build-buy decision. These two paths are a different business journeys with different costs to consider.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Scott Nelson who takes us on a deep dive into the connected sensor to understand the economics involved and the questions to ask during the sensor definition stage ...


SIGFOX is a Wide Area Network operator for low bandwidth devices. The fundamental costs of any network operator are:

  • Leasing space on base stations
  • Buying spectrum from the FCC
  • Upstream connectivity

Watch this video (or read the transcript) to see how a radical change to the values in the traditional operator business model can transform the cost structure of a wide swath of IoT applications ...




Episode 3

Sensors from the M2M world are evolving into connected sensors for IoT. Same sensor tech but now the sensor needs to communicate outside of a local and often proprietary network. Goodbye 35 year-old Modbus, used in SCADA of yesteryear and hello layered communication, needed in the Internet of Things to onboard billions of sensors.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Mike Fahrion as he explains not only the anatomy of today’s connected sensor, but also why we’re moving to a layered communication stack ...




Episode 2

It takes a lot of work, behind the scenes work, to establish a successful connection between sensor and IoT Platform. While it’s possible to find off-the-shelf sensor subsystems for common use-cases, often, custom hardware and software design is needed to make the system/connected product/asset operate as desired.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Mark Wright about the who and the what behind the scenes that need to be involved to make it happen ...


Electric Imp sells product connectivity as a service to OEMs who want to connect, operate and manage their devices from the cloud. While starting in consumer IoT, particularly home automation, they have found their current sweet spot to be in industrial IoT.
Watch this video (or read the transcript) to see Bryan Kennedy explain that the true value of connected products isn’t from the connectivity but from transformation changes it can have on your entire business ...
