Episode 12

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.

Episode 11

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.

Episode 10

There are five main IoT alliances/consortiums/groups focused on the Internet of Things and I interview them all. The Internet Protocol for Smart Object (IPSO) Alliance – episode E3 has been around for a while but the Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC) – episode 9, the Thread group, the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and the Allseen Alliance have sprung up recently. Depending on your focus, one or more of these organizations and are worth looking into when starting your IoT journey.

Episode 8

OK, I admit it, this is going to be a bit of a geekfest but application protocols are an important topic to understand if you want to understand how IoT works. Protocols are the lifeblood of an IoT system and as we are about to find out, there are a few different types to choose from – each with their own characteristics and infrastructure requirements.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with our panelists Steve Jennis, Dev Bhattacharya, Carsten Bormann and Michael Richardson as we discuss CoAP, XMPP, RESTful HTTP, MQTT and DDS ...




Episode 7

Meet IoT’s three layers of protocols… the media layer, otherwise known as the physical layer or radio, the network layer and the application layer. Important because they make up the network stack that transports data from the sensor to the cloud. Important because they are standardized.

Episode 6

In broad strokes, the software required for an IoT deployment can be grouped into four classes: embedded software for sensors and gateways, networking or the IoT platform (communication, rules and sometimes interpretation) data management & analytics and of course the IoT application.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Zach Shelby as we discuss the first class, embedded software for sensors or more specifically sensor operating systems and the inevitable evolution of these disparate classes into an IoT software ecosystem ...




Episode 5

In part 1 we discussed the sensor selection process and the costs involved. If you haven’t listened to the last episode, you should but it’s not a prerequisite.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Scott Nelson where we finish talking sensor costs and move into sensor security, the untold risks when incorporating sensors and the expected evolutionary path sensor tech will take ...




Episode 4

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 ...




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 ...
