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.
Seismic Shift Data that Saves Lives
The sheer quantity of available data, combined with the speed of automation,
can support mission-critical applications that are designed to save lives.
Research centers can leverage IoT networks to relay critical data in
real-time from areas where earthquakes ... (more)
Holistic Method of IoTification
Almost two-thirds of companies either have or soon will have IoT as the
backbone of their business in 2016. However, IoT is far more complex than
most firms expected. How can you not get trapped in the pitfalls?
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, a renowned visionary and thought
leader, will introduce a holistic method of IoTification, which is the
process of IoTifying the existing technology and business models to adopt and
leverage IoT. He will drill down to the components in this framework:
Anatomy, Ramp-up, Use case, Business case, Arch... (more)
Welcome to the latest installment in the battle of two tech titans. Last week
Alphabet announced that Nest is being merged into Google. See Fortune's
summary: Google Will Absorb Nest Developers.
This is the denouement to the saga that started in April, tied to infighting
between the Google and Nest teams. I dissected this "silo-itis" in Why #Nest
is Down, #Amazon Up, in #IoT for the #Connected Home.
Now some unsurprising new developments since Tony Fadell, the CEO of Nest,
resigned in June. Here's what Google is trying to achieve by "re-absorbing"
the troubled Nest group:

Users demand rich and engaging experiences and new ways to connect with you.
But creating robust video applications at scale can be complicated,
time-consuming and expensive.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Zohar Babin, Vice President of Platform,
Ecosystem and Community at Kaltura, will discuss how VPaaS enables you to
move fast, creating scalable video experiences that reach your au... (more)
