The Non-Tangibles Become Tangible By @Entuity | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

We recently changed over the entire phone system in our London office

We recently changed over the entire phone system in our London office.  After four years, the equipment failed, and it was time to update.  As we did so, we also changed vendors.  Why?

It occurred to us that, for four years, we had put up with horrible support – we were the victims of fraud at one point, and the vendor did nothing to support us with the main telecom provider.  The phone system could go down for a day before they came out to repair it.  No big deal, right?  What high tech software company needs to communicate to the outside world?

So it was time to put in a new phone system.  Though our original vendor offered lower terms than a competitor (though, note that they submitted their bid 48 hours later than they had promised, and while our phone system was STILL down!), we decided to pay a bit more with a vendor who seemed more eager and supportive for our business.

Are we unique?  I don’t think so.  In these tough economic times, we all look to conserve cash, but at the same time, we also want to focus on our business, not silly infrastructure issues unaddressed by unresponsive vendors.  We see the same thing with network management.  We’re talking with a half dozen companies today who intend on replacing their existing frameworks, simply because their frameworks are difficult and expensive to maintain, and the vendors are deaf.

All change is not bad.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
