There's been a seismic shift in monitoring earthquakes via the Industrial
Internet of Things (IIoT) with advanced Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology
having reshaped the industrial communication industry. Every device or
machine along the network, even at the outermost edge, now has the
opportunity to be fully-connected for automated collection and delivery of
information. As Sensor-2-Server (S2S) communication technology evolves to
keep up with the demand for this connectivity paradigm, new efficiencies are
created and Big Data is available to drive actionable intelligence.
Seismic Shift Data that Saves Lives
The sheer quantity of available data, combined with the speed of automation,
can support mission-critical applications that are designed to save lives.
Research centers can leverage IoT networks to relay critical data in
real-time from areas where earthquakes ... (more)
Fog Computing is being touted as the data communication solution our
Internet of Things (IoT) devices are asking for by bringing the power of
cloud computing closer to the end user. The fact is, the number of connected
devices is going to continue to grow exponentionally. In fact, Gartner
predicts that by 2020 IoT will include 26 billion connected things. Consider
the impact that amount of data collected and processed will have.The
Naturally, with billions of devices all connected to the cloud for
manufacturing, oil and gas, utilities, municipalities and enterprise, to... (more)
Industrial IoT continues to cause disruption; not just in manufacturing, but
across many other industries as well. In the last few months we've been
keeping a pulse on the state of digital transformation across the
business landscape and have been discovering exciting new implementations
of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). This week we're highlighting the
disruption Industrial IoT is instigating as product development and
lifecycle management continues to evolve.
Overcoming Three Key Barriers to Industrial IoT
Industrial IoT has the potential to capture data in real-time, l... (more)
Time and again, those keeping a pulse on the Internet of
Things (IoT) space frequently hear about the "rise of the machines."
Humanity is not only discovering fascinating ways to integrate machines into
our daily lives, but also finding new uses for machines as well. How?
Machines are now "internet-connected" just like the smartphones we carry
around in our pockets. And this isn't just on the commercial side with the
likes of smart thermostats or connected vehicles - even tractors and oil and
gas machinery are industrial examples of where new "things" are now on
the digital net... (more)
According to the National Fire Protection Association, in 2013 there were
369,500 home fires causing some $6.8 billion in damages1 - plus an additional
98,000 apartment structure fires contributing an additional $1.6 billion in
losses2. A frightening picture, isn't it? The numbers are staggering - and
yet innovation for emergency responders at both a local and national has not
been a priority. The Internet of Things (IoT) aims to change that.
Companies are now exploring how IoT technology can disrupt the way emergency
responders do their jobs, saving countless lives and millions o... (more)
