Which IoT protocol should I use for my system?
Which IoT protocol should I use for my system?

Internet protocols (IPs) are not new, but dedicated IPs for the Internet of Things (IoT) are, and they are used to help shape system capabilities. There are multiple IP application layer protocols above TCP/IP sockets. Each one has its advantages and constraints. Knowing them helps developers make the best design choices for a product.

Flexibility to update firmware, a key to IoT devices
Flexibility to update firmware, a key to IoT devices

Designers must build flexibility into their products to meet the evolving IoT ecosystem as new functionalities and regulations are adopted. Firmware updates not only allow customization during initial deployment at a customer site, but also enable new functions/features to be added after a product has been in the field or allows fixing of any firmware issues during usage.

LPWA standards seek Industrial IoT connections
LPWA standards seek Industrial IoT connections

The void left by 2G network shutdowns has created an opportunity for low-power, wide-area network (LPWAN) technologies that – while not suited for the latency, determinism, or quality of service (QoS) requirements of high-value or safety-critical systems – do offer the low cost and simplicity necessary to connect scores of devices and applications that could not afford to be networked previously.

EdgeX Foundry joins industry-wide push for IoT interoperability

The foundation of the EdgeX Foundry software platform is based on Dell FUSE middleware, a code base made available under the Apache 2.0 license that enables a set of loosely coupled, plug-and-play EdgeX Foundry microservices that are compatible with programs developed in any language or application environment through a set of common APIs.

Businesses move from
Businesses move from "Should we use the IoT?" to "How should we use the IoT?"

IoT integration is increasingly becoming a necessity for business development and growth—in fact, according to Vodafone’s 2016 IoT Barometer, more than 75 percent of businesses say the IoT is critical to future success. Given its importance, simply adopting the IoT will no longer serve as a business differentiator.

Executive Outlook

Turning the Industrial IoT toolbox Blue(tooth)

Bluetooth 5 introduces several enhancements on top of those enabled by Bluetooth low energy (BLE) technology that further allow Bluetooth to move from a cable replacement technology to a network-oriented technology, and thus better able to support IoT applications in all vertical segments.
