Security is one of the most significant access technologies barriers to IoT deployment, together with funding, interoperability and the business model. Fraud is growing in this area, and industry leaders across the ecosystem agree that securing the IoT application is the only way to fully develop its business potential.
The IoT is a rapidly developing market, involving connecting devices to the Internet to utilise the data they create. Forecasts indicate bilions of connected devices within the next few years. So where are they and how are they being connected?
With annual revenues of €1.7B, BICS is a leading global carrier at the heart of today’s global communications. More than 500 mobile network operators trust us to safely carry and deliver their international and roaming traffic, and today our networks carry more than a quarter of the world’s roaming traffic
Smart manufacturing and digital transformation, coupled with edge intelligence, are enabling manufacturers to increase productivity, reduce downtime, and increase product quality. A key factor in the success of this transformation is the deployment of intelligent edge-computing solutions that can bridge the gap between the operation technology (OT) and the information technology (IT) worlds by providing a number of benefits.
The world today is witnessing a new age of digital transformation that will also require manufacturers to rethink their existing business models and corresponding industrial automation infrastructures. To remain relevant and competitive in the age of “Industry 4.0”, manufacturers need to do more than simply adopt digital technologies and deploy pre-defined processes in isolated islands of automation as they have done in the past.
Travel SIMs that connect either employees or devices that move around the world are enabling enterprises to launch and manage a connected operation on a global scale. Global organizations often run a highly geographically dispersed operation with employees travelling to remote areas.
Usage-Based-Insurance (UBI) is also known as Pay-As-You-Drive (PAYD) or Pay-How-You-Drive (PHYD), a way for car owners to insure their vehicle using Internet of Things (IoT) technology to collect useful information from the vehicle to determine their insurance premiums.
Leak detection, of gas or liquid, in pipelines, is traditionally conducted by field technicians making periodic or re-active visits to take manual or mobile logging of measurements. Using IoT technologies, especially connected leak detection sensors to automate measurements, gives industry sectors such as oil and gas, manufacturing, agriculture, water and gas utilities, increased visibility of leak incidents.
