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 ...


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 ...




Episode 1

Want to connect your product to the Internet of Things? The first step is giving it senses and then connectivity to the Internet of Things.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Adam Justice, a second generation sensors guy who takes us through the two main approaches to get your products, assets or environment on to the next generation Interweb, known as the Internet of Things ...




Episode E4

Wondering how IoT is being rolled out in cities? Look up… into the light. Streetlights are the perfect steppingstone to produce smart cities. Changing their bulbs to LEDs pay for themselves in 3-5 years but also present the opportunity to build out wireless mesh networks. These elevated networks allow more lighting control/efficiency and provide the foundation for other smart city services such as power and parking.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Sterling Hughes about lessons learned in deploying Silversping’s networks in cities around the world. This is encore episode 4, of 4, which originally played in the IPv6 Show podcast ...




Episode E3

Alot of progress has been made in their first six years but there’s more work to be done.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with IPSO’s head honchos as we discuss the networking standardization challenges facing the Internet of Things and what they’re going to do about them. This is encore episode 3 of 4, which originally played in the IPv6 Show podcast ...
