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 name a few, the data transmission and processing rate is bound to slow down - especially if the current cloud architecture is upheld. Some IoT devices use the cloud to store data long term, where other connected things send data to the cloud to be analyzed and sent back to the device with... (more)

Shift in IIoT #Monitoring | @ThingsExpo #IoT #IIoT #M2M #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)

[session] @CypressSemi to Present at @ThingsExpo | #IoT #M2M #ML #Sensors

The Key to Your Connected Smart Home The vision of a connected smart home is becoming reality with the application of integrated wireless technologies in devices and appliances. The use of standardized and TCP/IP networked wireless technologies in line-powered and battery operated sensors and controls has led to the adoption of radios in the 2.4GHz band, including Wi-Fi, BT/BLE and 802.15.4 applied ZigBee and Thread. This is driving the need for robust wireless coexistence for multiple radios to ensure throughput performance and that all devices can connect with medium access. ... (more)

IoT Top News: M2M Propels Machines | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #IIoT #MachineLearning

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 net...
