MCU architectures come in so many flavors that there will be a peripheral set to match any sensor you choose. Real decision making at the embedded chipset level is driven by the application. You choose hardware based on its capability to support software. The characteristics of your chipset’s memory, computing power and comms will come from answering a 101 questions, all answered by your IoT application’s requirements.

Column-based versus row-based, SQL versus NoSQL and streaming versus batch are three of the most important dimensions to consider choosing your IoT database. But let’s get something clear, databases are two levels of indirection beyond what’s truly important: the IoT information you require. Databases support analytics support information. Having said that, the informed business manager on databases will ask the right questions and set the right priorities during ideation of the IoT product.

One of the value power sources for an IoT application is external data, that when piped in, can be used to augment its functionality. Of all sources of external data, weather is probably the most ubiquitous and useful. Like many data services, the API is built on a tiered billing system. Come in for free as a developer or hobbyist but once you get over 500 hits per day you start paying.

How much IoT data should you keep? It’s not clear. The more data you keep, the more data transmission and storage costs you’ll incur. However thinning out your data store means throwing away potential future insights, potential answers to future questions and potential new information products to expand your business – all value generators unique to IoT products.

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 ...


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 ...

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 ...


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 ...
