Time and again, those keeping a pulse on the Internet of Things (IoT) space frequently hear about the "rise of the machines." Humanity is not only discovering fascinating ways to integrate machines into our daily lives, but also finding new uses for machines as well. How? Machines are now "internet-connected" just like the smartphones we carry around in our pockets. And this isn't just on the commercial side with the likes of smart thermostats or connected vehicles - even tractors and oil and gas machinery are industrial examples of where new "things" are now on the digital network. In fact, there are more M2M or 'machine-to-machine' communication devices on this planet than humans. As GSMA Intelligence reported in 2014, there are 7.2bn M2M devices versus 7.19bn humans. Stuart Taylor from Cisco also wrote a prediction that "The Internet of Things (IoT) is a world w... (more)

IoT Challenge and #FogComputing | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #BigData

Fog Computing is being touted as the data communication solution our Internet of Things (IoT) devices are asking for by bringing the power of cloud computing closer to the end user. The fact is, the number of connected devices is going to continue to grow exponentionally. In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2020 IoT will include 26 billion connected things. Consider the impact that amount of data collected and processed will have.The Challenge Naturally, with billions of devices all connected to the cloud for manufacturing, oil and gas, utilities, municipalities and enterprise, to...

Shift in IIoT #Monitoring | @ThingsExpo #IoT #IIoT #DigitalTransformation

There's been a seismic shift in monitoring earthquakes via the  Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) with advanced Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology having reshaped the industrial communication industry. Every device or machine along the network, even at the outermost edge, now has the opportunity to be fully-connected for automated collection and delivery of information. As Sensor-2-Server (S2S) communication technology evolves to keep up with the demand for this connectivity paradigm, new efficiencies are created and Big Data is available to drive actionable intelligence. Se... (more)

IoT and ML | @ThingsExpo #BigData #MachineLearning #CognitiveComputing

Machine-to-machine (M2M) learning is an integral apart of the expanding world of Industrial IoT. Over the past few months we have given attention to manufacturing and its current digital disruption, but have failed to show the direct impact smart M2M and IoT technology is having on the industry. So, this week we are diving deeper into the term machine learning and how it connects to manufacturing both today and in the future. Before we get to our news round up let's start by re-defining M2M, to ensure we are all on the same page with its purpose and meaning. Gartner has defined ... (more)

How to Leverage IIoT | @ThingsExpo #IoT #IIoT #M2M #InternetOfThings

The Internet of Things (IoT) is creeping into every aspect of our lives. With the advent of smart cities, smart manufacturing, precision agriculture, drones and digital energy, businesses and individuals alike have seen the influx of IoT technology. For example, a recent report from Gartner, "suggests that more than 26 billion devices will be connected to the internet by 2020, with 250,000 of them being vehicles." So, with the billions of connected things, its only natural this week's top news roundup would highlight how IoT is maturing and what experts see for the future ahead. ... (more)

Industrial Internet of Things | @ThingsExpo #IoT #IIoT #DigitalTransformation

Small image courtesy of: Intopalo *This is the first in a series of blogs examining Sensor-2-Server communications, development and implementation. Throughout history, industrial revolutions have hinged on the power of automating processes. While automation today offers many benefits, imagine if you could automate thousands - or even millions - of processes simultaneously? This is the next potential wave of innovation, and it's the organizations that are "geographically dispersed" or "automation heavy" that will benefit the most. While long-range communications and connectivity ... (more)
