IPv6 and The Internet of Things

A majority of the tech industry has come to accept that the Internet of Things (IoT) will increase in size by the year 2020, enabling around 30 billion internet-connected devices. Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) was the first internet protocol to be released for public use.

Humble Beginnings of the IoT

The Internet of Things (IoT), that has been portrayed as an impending revolution, is not a new concept, but is the culmination from many years of connecting objects through computer networks. Kevin Ashton didn’t coin the phrase we use today until 1999 (while referring to RFID tags in supply chains), but the idea that he was employing came about earlier in the 90s when machine-to-machine (M2M) industrial solutions offered closed networks for device communication.

How Time-Sensitive Networking Enables the IIoT

The world’s first time-sensitive networking (TSN) testbed is being developed in a collaborative effort to change network infrastructure so that it will enhance the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). As this develops, it is essential that Industry 4.0. Machine designers, builders, and users have reliable and secure access to smart edge devices. This will force the current, standard network technologies to transform in an effort to meet the requirements of the next generation of industrial systems.

Technology Leaders Converge for Six Events in Las Vegas this November

A vast majority of the technology industry’s leaders and innovators are coming together in Las Vegas this November. Through a series of six different conferences, all covering different technological specialties, the industry’s brightest minds will connect and discuss the most advanced technology. These companies will be working together in an effort to discover new market opportunities and pave the way for future technological advancement.

How Singapore is Envisioning the Internet of Things

Many of the countries in the Global Far East have made definitive innovations to the Internet of Things (IoT). According to the OECD, Korea is leading the world in devices online per 100 inhabitants at 37.9, with the next closest competitor ranking in at 32.7 (The US weighs in at a measly 24.9).

The Internet of Things and Networking

The Internet of Things (IoT) is continuing to grow at a rapid pace as more devices are becoming connected. However, the IoT is rendered useless without a system of networking to support it. As WiFi-enabled devices increase in popularity, the demand for networking will expand substantially. IoT-based technology is disrupting the current networking market due to vast amount of data that is collected and the quantity of devices connected to the Internet. Companies will be expected to have extremely efficient networks that will allow for real time analysis. In addition to this, simply having faster Internet speeds is essential in supporting the rise of IoT devices.

The Dangers of Protocol Overkill

Standards in the Internet of Things (IoT) are the platform by which devices can communicate. This provides a language for devices to speak in order for them to recognize one another and work in unison. Unfortunately, in recent years, corporate agendas have overshadowed the ideal consumer experience by infusing the market with an overload of protocols, creating a significant barrier to the interoperability of devices in the smart ecosystem.

IWCE Panel: What You Need to Know About the Internet of Things

Whether you call it the Internet of Things, machine to machine, Connected Devices, the Social Web of Things or the Networked Society, it is hard to deny that more and more "things" are being connected every day. The Internet of Things has exploded! From light bulbs to automobiles to buildings, things are getting a digital makeover as the IoT connects people, devices, and applications wirelessly, turning them “smart.”
