GE considers the opportunity of extracting value from industrial Internet data so great that it has changed big parts of its business to take advantage of it. At the heart of this transformation are business models more directly aligned with their customers’ business objectives and a new, more inclusive partnership approach to delivering value.
Watch this video (or read the transcript) to hear Dave Bartlett describe why an IoT platform and ecosystem are required to provide the collaborative framework needed to enable multiple companies to jointly provide the outcomes that customers find most valuable ...


Although they are often named the same, the media layer of IoT networking consists of two separate parts: the radio to transmit the data and the protocol to exchange the data with the receiver. Important for many reasons including updatability. While the hardware can be in place for long periods of time, you can expect protocols to change every few years as exemplified by the 802.15.4 standard which is currently on version m.
Watch this video (or read the transcript) to hear Brandon Harris explain how to tune power consumption, bandwidth, range and cost to get the right sensor for your IoT application....




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 ...


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 ...


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 ...
