Using The Festo IoT Gateway in Enterprise Networks
The purpose of the Festo IoT Gateway device is to allow for a communication between the factory ﬂoor and the cloud. Traditionally production networks are completely separated from the Internet. This application note describes a solution using Debian GNU/Linux in a virtual machine to connect the IoT Gateway to the Festo Cloud while complying with state of the art security recommendations.
IoT Launch Checklist

Connectivity Evolution: M2M vs. IoT vs. IoE
This paper defines and gives examples of M2M, IoT, and IoE overlapping technologies, how they are similar or different, and how they have evolved over time to improve business efficiencies, produce multiple new revenue streams, or simply enrich the quality of life.
Telematics as a Driver for Insurance
Today’s insurance provides a multitude of views into driver and driving characteristics. Aeris’ platform-based, highly scalable solution enables insurers to offer value-added services that simplify the insurance process and radically improve customer satisfaction.
Choosing The Right Connectvity Infrastructure for Your IoT Applicaton
Five years ago, the decision of whether to build or buy a connectvity infrastructure was relatvely simple. Build. However, that asserton is a bit of a misnomer, because untl recently, purchasing the solutons necessary to power Internet of Things (IoT) applicatons simply wasn’t an available commodity ...

Expert Panel Webinar on “How IoT enables the tracking of assets”
Where are my assets? IoT is enabling secure tracking of high value moving assets. Knowing where things are at any given time can be critical to transforming business operations – reducing risk, saving money, improving efficiency, and potentially even driving new service revenue. But what technology is required to enable this business transformation?
Prepare for the 5G future
The buzz around 5G continues, with some analysts projecting it will upend entire industries. Industry analyst firm, ABI Research, is forecasting that mobile broadband operators will generate $247 billion in 5G revenues in 2025. At the same time, there are many mixed messages surrounding 5G, and — as with any standard still under development — much that remains unknown.
Selecting the ideal wireless technology for Sensor-to-cloud application development
The IoT is expected to explode as standards for wireless technologies rev-up specifications and capabilities to address the intense densification expected to happen at the edge of IoT to support large sensor and device swarm networks.
IoT in Manufacturing Insight Report
In the latest of an ongoing series of specially-commissioned, independent, analyst-written Insight Reports, Matt Wilkins, the senior analyst for IoT Research in the Global Wireless Practice at Strategy Analytics, assesses how IoT is enabling more analytical approaches to manufacturer operations
The Enterprise Buyer’s Guide – Which IoT Platform 2017
Decision making in respect of which IoT solutions and platforms to select gets more challenging when successful IoT engagement means processing large amounts of data in real-time to support current business operations. It can be more challenging still to integrate these new real-time data flows with traditional batch update data typical of IT systems already in use.
Industrial IoT – How manufacturers will optimise performance and maximise opportunities
Global manufacturing faces an increasing set of challenges in growth, innovation and competition. Globally, gross domestic product (GDP) was at US$30.69 trillion in 1995. By 2014, global GDP reached a new peak at US$78 trillion. As a percentage of global GDP, manufacturing dropped its share from 21.4% in 1995 to 14.7% in 2014.
Smart Cities: Drivers, challenges, developments and ecosystems
Cities in general are more than a pure concentration of dwellings or workplaces. Cities have economies of scale. Positive parameters, such as wages, patients and hospitals, scale at a ratio of 1.5 for a doubling of city size. Negative parameters such as crime and some diseases also tend to follow the same rule – if the infrastructure of the city can manage the scale.
Smart Energy – Will IoT technologies complement smart grid investments?
The concept of a smart grid in the power and utilities sector took shape at around the same time as the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) sector began its own transformation journey towards Internet of Things (IoT). The official characteristics of a smart grid were defined in the United States at the end of 2006 while the European Union set up a smart grid task force in 2009 to drive the necessary research and development efforts.
