"What is the next step in the evolution of IoT systems? The answer is data,
information, which is a radical shift from assets, from things to input for
decision making," stated Michael Minkevich, VP of Technology Services at
Luxoft, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 3-5, at
the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Internet [email protected], taking place June 6-8, 2017 at Javits Center, New

Predictions can be enlightening as we round out the end of the year, and
industry analysts covering the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
have begun forecasting what to expect in 2017. In the ever changing digital
business landscape, companies need to keep a pulse on the technology and
regulatory environments to have direction on where to focus their
efforts. Over the past few years, IIoT has taken on the shared title of
industry 4.0, as new ways of connecting businesses and
consumers impact systems infrastructures and technology integrations
across many, if not all. business lines.
In honor of reigning in 2017 as a strong year for the industrial
internet, we have dedicated this week's round up to highlight some of
the top IIoT analyst predictions in the coming year.

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 machine-2-machine communications as "something used for automated
data transmission and measurement between mechanical or electronic devices."
Now, that we have defined M2M, its time to check out our top news round up
for the week on how M2M applies to both manufacturing and IoT.

The drone business has been flying high for the last few years, especially
as they became popular consumer devices as regulatory and technological
frameworks continue to take shape for greater implementation into the
National Airspace (NAS). Much has also been written though about the
possibilities of drones igniting the next wave of innovation for enterprise
specific applications in precision agriculture, oil and gas, construction,
asset monitoring and delivery, and mining. However, it's clear that the
military sector will continue to lead all other sectors in drone spending
for the foreseeable future, thanks to worldwide demand of this technology.
But perhaps the most intriguing applications for drones in the coming years
are those related to safety - public safety, that is. State and local
governments are certainly beginning to take their SWOT (Strengths,
As 2017 kicks into full gear and a particularly interesting 2016 fades into
the rearview mirror, we at FreeWave took a look around the industrial IoT
landscape to see what this year might potentially have in store.
It’s become increasingly difficult to ignore the importance of
cybersecurity. From the role it played in the 2016 presidential election to
the recent revelation that in 2013, more than one billion Yahoo accounts were
breached, cybersecurity is no longer a problem unique to Sci-Fi thrillers. Of
course, the two examples mention here are simply the most egregious of recent
memory, but they pale in comparison to the threat of a cyberattack on actual

Industrial IoT continues to cause disruption; not just in manufacturing, but
across many other industries as well. In the last few months we've been
keeping a pulse on the state of digital transformation across the
business landscape and have been discovering exciting new implementations
of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). This week we're highlighting the
disruption Industrial IoT is instigating as product development and
lifecycle management continues to evolve.
Overcoming Three Key Barriers to Industrial IoT
Industrial IoT has the potential to capture data in real-time, leverage big
data analytics and streamline efficiency to name a few. So what's hold back
the industry? A major barrier has to do with culture of the operational
technology (OT) organizations within the industry. The OT have a risk-averse
way of thinking and see change as disruption, "Whereas ... (more)
District Court Judge William Alsup, who refused last week to decide whether
Google had fairly used the Java IP a jury said Android infringed, had no
trouble Friday deciding that the jury made a mistake in finding Google only
copied nine lines of Java's rangeCheck code as well as infringing the
sequence, structure and organization of 37 Java APIs.
In a judgment as a matter of law the good judge said Google directly copied
eight other Java files and that it wasn't a petty little thing.
FOSS Patents had said when it came out that the jury's verdict was odd since
"there are code files in there that are much larger than the rangeCheck
function, and infringement was so clear that it shouldn't even have been put
before a jury." The judge effectively said the blog was right.
In his decision Judge Alsup said:
The evidence at trial showed that Google decompiled eight Java file... (more)
Apple claims six more Samsung products, including the Galaxy Note II,
infringe eight of its patents and wants to add them to its other California
suit against the Korean giant, the one that doesn't go to trial until March
Its first California suit against Samsung resulted in a jury verdict awarding
it $1.05 billion in damages.
The decision will be reviewed by presiding District Court Judge Lucy Koh on
December 6. She could ban the Samsung products that were found to infringe or
throw the verdict out. Since they are older products, Samsung's biggest risk
is to its pride and reputation.
The other widgets Apple wants added to the suit it filed in February are
Samsung's flagship Galaxy S III as well as its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
operating system; the Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi model; the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1; the

Manufacturing is in the midst reinventing itself on the heels of the latest
IoT innovations. The industrial automation paradigm, which some say also gave
rise to the lean manufacturing management philosophy, continues to influence
organizations that wish to find new ways to capitalize on business
opportunities in the digital age. Through that lens we gathered the top
articles from the week and found some interesting perspectives. Some reports
started suggesting manufacturing is in a time of trouble, both in the U.S.
and around the globe, namely in places like China. But upon further
investigation, we also find exciting trends that are shaping the evolution of

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)
