IoT Connectivity: From Baby Steps to Giant Strides

IoT Connectivity: From Baby Steps to Giant Strides

IoT connectivity is growing by leaps and bounds, promising amazing changes ahead. Experience is rapidly bearing out the predicted trend of a stunning number of “smart” devices appearing in businesses, at home, and in the public sphere.

IoT and Data Ownership: Your Device your Data?

IoT and Data Ownership: Your Device your Data?

Greater openness across IoT data ecosystems will result in a broader range of services being offered to end users.

Data Exchange Standards: Wireless Wars

Data Exchange Standards: Wireless Wars

IoT is all about connecting things and enabling them to communicate, but communication is only possible when standards exist for the exchange. Currently, several systems are fighting for supremacy. Can we expect a common language for IoT?

Urban Robots: Street Smarts

Urban Robots: Street Smarts

Technologists and business titans are all pushing the limits of technology in a breathtaking sprint to bring robots to our streets. Their vision for using urban robots in our cities seems to be limitless. We ask how far, and how fast, is this progressing, and to what ends?

LoRa WAN: A Network for Everybody

LoRa WAN: A Network for Everybody

The ecosystem of connectivity solutions is very competitive in these still-early days of IoT. Senet has rolled out their own LoRa WAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) solutions for the low-power, broad-network needs of IoT, providing coverage and connectivity readiness in over 80 countries and 225 cities across the U.S. We sat down with Senet’s president and CEO, Bruce Chatterley, to talk about where he sees LoRa as a connectivity option of preference, where growth will happen, and how he sees this new network infrastructure growing out.

IoT Agencies: How to Jump-Start Projects

IoT Agencies: How to Jump-Start Projects

Many companies face the challenge of realizing their IoT projects, and agencies can help. Their services range from the examination of the idea to developing the operational prototype. We explain how IoT agencies differ and what to look for in the selection and cooperation.

Cybercrime in Space: How Secure Are Satellites?

Cybercrime in Space: How Secure Are Satellites?

Unlike their military counterparts, civilian GNSS systems are vulnerable to jamming and spoofing. Cybercrime in Space must change.

Next-Gen GNSS: Eyes in the Sky

Next-Gen GNSS: Eyes in the Sky

For years, different navigation satellite systems, primarily the United States’ GPS and Russia’s Glonass, have allowed people and organizations to detect their devices and compute locations accurately and securely. However, the more that 5G, automated driving, and smart cities become mainstream, it’s becoming clear that a broader range of location-based applications will need to be supported to meet specific market and individual needs.

Edge Computing: From Big Data to Smart Data

Edge Computing: From Big Data to Smart Data

As technology advances, businesses are amassing more and more data. With the advent of cloud computing (to Edge Computing), and with more servers and greater bandwidth than ever before, we now have the ability to both generate and store enormous volumes of it.

Device Security: Race to the Edge

Device Security: Race to the Edge

Analytics services are moving to the edge but ensuring the physical security of edge devices can be a real headache. Device Security providers often take very different approaches to securing the edge, and finding the right strategy for enterprises and organizations will vary by IoT business case, not to mention risk management.
