Security and privacy in a world of an ever-increasing number of connected things is likewise more complex and challenging. With new regulations being passed in the EU, US, Asia and other regions in the world, IoT industry participants are being tasked with ensuring everything from their devices and applications to their transmission networks and clouds comply with laws wherever they or their distribution partners do business.
The Future of IoT Cybersecurity: More Things, More Bandwidth, More Innovation Is Driving Investment in Securing Everything
The best IoT systems comprehensively coordinate anywhere from few to hundreds, thousands and even hundreds of thousands of devices, sending data between their sensors and connected data centers or clouds.
Smart city technology is proving to help cities around the world operate more efficiently while improving services to citizens and businesses. Smart cities leverage information and communication technologies to enhance safety, the environment, services to citizens, economic development, and more.
One of the foundational elements for many cities implementing smart city initiatives is the incorporation of connected streetlights. These fixtures are equipped with LED lights which are designed to communicate through a centralized network, allowing cities to monitor the individual characteristics (luminosity, color, energy usage, activation during public events, and more) of each lamp, leading to major energy costs savings as well as more secure streets.
While there are disasters happening around the world every day – whether natural or manmade – never in the history of the world I’ve witnessed has there been a single event that has impacted every country, every community, every business, government and family on the planet as COVID-19 has and will for years to come.
We were honored earlier this week to receive our official U.S. Patent certificate, granted in March. While we are passionate about the digital world, we were also very proud to receive this physical certificate, which represents another major milestone in our company’s history.
To share how simple it is to create a Connected Field Service solution using our latest innovation, Genie, we’ve put together this short video illustrating the process.
Beyond the massive impact the global pandemic and related Work from Home mandates are having on organizations whose offices have been closed for months – and who have turned to virtual productivity platforms to keep operations moving – consider the impact on field service, and the technicians who go out into the field to fix problems or simply provide preventative or regular maintenance.
As the Internet of Things expands, companies find themselves faced with the challenge of integrating a multitude of devices and protocols, with varying power and connectivity requirements. IoT Gateways are vital components in establishing a robust IoT environment and for achieving computational power in edge computing.
