Alright, let’s talk building an IoT product or system. Time to cycle through concept – ideation – proof of concept– prototype – MVP – product. In this episode of the IoT BusinessShow, part two of two, I speak again with Yuriy Pryadko who shares his experience in the 6-step journey to manufacturing or deployment. In part 2 we get into plenty of details and the numbers, using a fun but useful product example, this time in the consumer IoT space.

Ripping out an existing SCADA system and replacing it with an IoT deployment isn’t going to happen any time soon. Whether it’s an oil pipeline or a water processing plant, the job of the OT guys is to keep things flowin’. Although the writing is on the wall, it’s going to take a lot more than the promise of information nirvana to change existing infrastructure. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I speak with System Integrator Joel Hutton about his experience in applying the thin edge of the wedge to get an IoT pilot going with his clients.

It’s one thing to be in a kickstarter–fueled startup developing your IoT product and quite another to be doing it within a structured corporate environment. Things get in the way. Priorities, personalities, politics and executive management. The same work needs to be done but other considerations need to be taken into account. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I speak with Jake Fields about his experience in working with IoT teams within the enterprise environment and the development steps to take to successfully make it through to the other side..

I’m sold. In fact I’ve been sold since early 2014 when I first started digging into the emerging Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) market. I’m sold not because it’s cool tech – I’m sold because its affordable. The price makes business sense for a wide range of IoT use cases – some we’re familiar with and others we haven’t even considered yet due to current cost structures. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I speak with Hardy Schmidbauer of the LoRa Alliance and Thomas Nicholls of Sigfox about what LPWA is and the different ways it’s sold.

The more I dig into it, the more I’m convinced that privacy is a bigger issue than security in IoT. Don’t get me wrong, the challenges facing IoT security are huge and in many cases, unchartered but, we’ll figure them out. Why? Because we’re good at figuring out tech. What’s going to be more challenging is teasing out the rules of engagement from the tangled web of IoT privacy. This involves people, companies, special interests and the law – much more difficult and with huge business implications. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I speak with privacy philosopher Justin Klein Keane about the challenges we face and some mental frameworks in which to consider them.

We speak about our offensive game so much that we forget that we need good defense in business too, that is, effectively protecting the value we create. However, and I speak from experience, the shiny new things seem so much more important than the seemingly dull security and privacy. Well, when looked at from a risk perspective, security and privacy all of a sudden become the purview of the manager. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I speak with Paul Dant about IoT risk assessment as well as security by design, threat modeling and other important topics to the manager.

Although an integral part of IoT security, IoT privacy doesn’t rely on technology. It relies instead on self-imposed business rules that govern the way the collected data is used within and outside of the enterprise. As with many things tech, government and law is unable to keep up with the innovation of IoT and with what some call its digital exhaust. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I speak with privacy expert Dale Smith about the top 5 best practices in handling personally identifiable information (PII) and other IoT privacy issues.

Big Data is big! It’s another entire industry that’s subsumed by the Internet of Things. There’s a lot to consider but it all starts with your business information requirements – what you get by transforming the raw sensor data you collect into business value you can use. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I speak with Big Data expert Mark van Rijmenam to conclude our seven-part miniseries on analytics by covering the entire array of what’s available.

Descriptive analytics is nothing new, however IoT is applying evolutionary forces to make it adapt to unstructured sensor data and evolve into a mechanism of discovery rather than report generation. Tools that blend traditional business intelligence, analytical modeling and visualization now help data scientists discover the story behind the data which can lead to valuable insights for the enterprise. In this episode of the IoT business show I speak with Dave Rubal about how to apply descriptive analytics to your Internet of Things.

OK, get ready for it, we’re going to get down and dirty with predictive analytics and when I say dirty, I mean the mathematics of the different forms of predictive models dirty. Geek fest? Yes, but close your eyes and extrapolate how predictive analytics can be applied to your situation. By understanding how it works you will also understand the limits of what it can and cannot do. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I deep dive with Anil Gandhi and emerge with a better understanding of predictive analytics and how it really relates to real-time and descriptive analytics.

In the Internet of Things there are generally three classes of analytics performed: real-time analytics done of the fly alerting you to anomalies; predictive analytics performed as a post process yielding a prediction and confidence level and descriptive analytics that reports on past, present or future data with visualizations that often result in the biggest insights. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I discuss the differences in these types of analyses with Shepherd Shi, as well as the steps that are taken before and after.

Column-based versus row-based, SQL versus NoSQL and streaming versus batch are three of the most important dimensions to consider choosing your IoT database. But let’s get something clear, databases are two levels of indirection beyond what’s truly important: the IoT information you require. Databases support analytics support information. Having said that, the informed business manager on databases will ask the right questions and set the right priorities during ideation of the IoT product. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I speak with Nik Rouda who breaks down the data environments used in IoT today.

How much IoT data should you keep? It’s not clear. The more data you keep, the more data transmission and storage costs you’ll incur. However thinning out your data store means throwing away potential future insights, potential answers to future questions and potential new information products to expand your business – all value generators unique to IoT products. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I speak with Steve Stover about balancing the costs and the technology approaches to maximize your Internet of Things data value.

To go beyond connectivity, the IoT Platform must abstract all components of the Internet of Things product or environment into a form that can be computed and interfaced with the app, model and analytics. I call this the software-defined product, or in the case of home automation, the software-defined home. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I discuss the IoT Platform with Jim Hunter and the importance of abstraction – from the metal to the cloud.

The “IoT Platform” is such an overloaded term that its meaning has been lost. Chipset manufacturers, sensor manufacturers, software vendors, consortia and system integrators all have their own definitions. But if you come at it from enough angles eventually a form takes shape and you realize it means what you want it to mean and what is important is not its definition but the context in which it’s used. In this episode of the IoT Business Show, Dr. Sean Lorenz and I go through the elusive IoT platform and why the business problem is always the place to start.

It’s a heck of a lot easier than it used to be but most IoT projects still involve custom system integration – the question now is how much. Although the definition of an IoT platform, or AEP, is not always clear, what is clear is that using a platform saves a lot of time and a lot of system integration work. There may be legitimate reasons to develop your own platform in house but by definition, this means you become a software company – big time. In this episode of the IoT Business show, I speak with Bryan Kester to get his take on what an IoT platform is, the technologies involved and a candid view on the strengths and weaknesses of IoT platforms today.

Because of the technology and data available, the biggest and most interesting challenge in designing an IoT product is to make it feel more like a service or experience, than a piece of hardware. Only after you understand the customer and what the opportunities really are can product design begin. In this episode of the IoT Business show, I speak with Gordon Hui to get an uber designer’s perspective on how to find that ideal product experience and the business that must be developed to support it.

When starting down the path toward your IoT product, it’s tempting to jump into the tech and get started with your PoC… but don’t fall into that trap. Of course there are benefits to getting the minimally viable product out the door but these benefits don’t go away if you back up first and start with a business strategy and defined user experience – in fact they’re accelerated when you have a clear path from the start. In this episode of the IoT Business show, I speak with Erik Ljung about the importance of starting at the top when beginning your product design process.

Getting an IoT project off the ground isn’t easy. It’s not just about launching a new product based on new technology, it’s the changes the organization must make to reach escape velocity. In this episode of the IoT Business show, I speak with Asaf Sadowski about the importance of creating an IoT proof of concept and the steps involved to get there.

After going through each of the major consortia, we are heading back to tech, but not as deep a dive as usual. Having left the edge behind, we are now moving on to the network fabric that holds everything together. In this episode of the IoT Business Show, we talk about some of the most important issues surrounding IoT Platforms today.

 
In this episode of the IoT Business Show, we talk about some of the most important issues surrounding IoT Platforms today.
 

When buying or developing an IoT Platform you need to prioritize your resources, both in time and in money and everything is a trade-off. Do you want more security or more cool features? Do you want better analytics or more sensors? As was mentioned in this episode, even the military has a budget when it comes to security and works within it. An important takeaway is to make build or buy decisions that don’t prevent you from going back, once deployed, to upgrade the security and analytics choices made along the way.

 

Like episodes 8 and 11, this show was recorded at the gogoNET LIVE 5 conference a few months back during the panel discussion, Top 5 issues in Network Platforms today. We ran out of time after three but that’s ok, we’ve already discussed APIs and standards in depth. In this show I discuss IoT Platform security, sensor compatibility and analytics compatibility with Bryan Kester of SeeControl, Steve Jennis of PrismTech, Justin Buchanan of Cisco and Brandon Harris of Electric Imp.

 

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Episode

 

  • Some of the security differences between IT and IoT and why IoT can sometimes be easier
  • Everything has a price including security and despite it being at the top of customer concerns, it’s not the top priority
  • Why sensors should not drive system design decisions
  • Why analytics decisions need to be driven by use-cases
  • What’s coming up for the system integration channel

The AllSeen Alliance gets a lot of press but it’s still mostly misunderstood. For most its name is synonymous with home IoT but that’s only the first step in a broader vision that encompasses consumer, commercial, industrial and infrastructure IoT. It’s currently focused on home automation because that’s the current focus of its members. But this will change over time. In this episode of the IoT Inc Business Show, I discuss all things, AllSeen and AllJoyn with Philip Des Autels and his view of the Alliance’s future.

 
In this episode Inc Business Show, I discuss all things, AllSeen and AllJoyn with Philip Des Autels and his view of the Alliance’s future.
 

Philip has 25 years of experience in the areas of: Cloud, Mobile and IoT – focusing on managing the interface connecting technology and society… he’s also senior director of IoT for the AllSeen Alliance. AllSeen is a cross-industry collaboration to advance IoT through an open source software project called AllJoyn – which was developed to enable billions of interoperable devices, services and apps.

 

AllSeen provides the AllJoyn open source code to any company, member or not, to get a head start on developing IoT products, solutions or services. It’s architected like a layered cake. At the bottom is the core messaging protocol independent of industry segment, next there are base services for onboarding and then there are unique service frameworks. It’s at this top level where we are interpreting the Alliance’s home focus since the first two service frameworks are for lighting and home appliances & entertainment.

 

Are they a player? Yes. Having an install base of 10 million devices (courtesy of Qualcomm who donated the project), makes it so. Their current focus makes them competitive with the Thread Group. Their future focus will make them competitive with the Open Interconnect Consortium. Do they want to compete? Not necessarily. They realize, as the industry does, that there’s room for and a desire for consolidation and they’re wise enough to be open to it.

 

There are five main IoT alliances/consortia/groups focused on the Internet of Things and I interview them all. The Internet Protocol for Smart Object (IPSO) Alliance has been around for a while but the Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC)the Thread group, the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and the Allseen Alliance are relatively new. Depending on your focus, one or more of these organizations and are worth looking into when starting your IoT journey. Listen to this mini podcast series to hear which ones.

 

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Episode

 

  • AllJoyn – the open source project, originally developed by Qualcomm, that’s made available by the AllSeen Alliance
  • What AllJoyn is and is not
  • The AllJoyn architecture
  • Why the current focus is in Home Automation and why the vision doesn’t stop there
  • Why companies become members of the AllSeen Alliance
  • The three levels of membership – what you get and how much they cost
  • Breakdown of the governance and how decisions are made
  • Details on their certification plans, version 1.0 and now 2.0
  • The AllSeen mission driven IP policy and the pledge that’s made

No one company is big enough to provide an end-to-end industrial Internet of Things solution. Realizing this, ATT, Cisco, GE, IBM and Intel came together to found the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC). The end game however is not technology, but business – to understand what is needed to put together solutions that not only work well, but sell well. In this episode of the IoT Inc Business Show, I discuss the IIC, with Lynne Canavan, Stephen Mellor and Brian Dalgetty.

In this episode of the IoT Inc Business Show, I discuss the IIC, with Lynne Canavan, Stephen Mellor and Brian Dalgetty.

Lynne is the Industrial Internet Consortium’s Program Director, Stephen is its Chief Technology Officer and Brian is Director of Internet of Things Marketing at IBM and was one of the founding members that helped launch the IIC. The Industrial Internet Consortium is a public-private non-profit organization formed to accelerate the development, adoption and use of interconnected machines, analytics, and people at work. With work being the operative word.

The IIC ecosystem helps companies large and small. By being part of test beds and by networking at meetings, small companies get to rub shoulders with the giants and demonstrate their worth. Large companies see how their solutions mesh in vitro and find smaller companies to fill in the gaps. But all are there to make contacts and form partnerships to advance their business.

There are five main IoT alliances/consortia/groups focused on the Internet of Things and I interview them all. The Internet Protocol for Smart Object (IPSO) Alliance has been around for a while but the Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC), the Thread group, the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and the Allseen Alliance are relatively new. Depending on your focus, one or more of these organizations and are worth looking into when starting your IoT journey. Listen to this mini podcast series to hear which ones.

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Episode

  • Why the Industrial Internet of Things is bigger than any once company, including IBM
  • The central importance of test beds and why they are one of the main value propositions of joining the IIC
  • How standards requirements are developed
  • Although they are not a standards body, find out why their standards requirements will be adopted
  • The process the IIC goes through in working with standards bodies and why it is a multi-decade process
  • Why big companies join the IIC
  • Why small companies join the IIC
  • The IIC intellectual property policy
  • No certification policy yet, but find out what is envisioned

There’s a symbiotic partnership between standards organizations, like the IETF and IEEE, and the non-profit alliances, groups and IoT consortia. The IoT industry needs standards but sometimes the standards organizations, when left to their own devices, can be guilty of satisfying only the vendors’ needs who are on the committees or being too broad, satisfying everyone but producing nothing of value. The non-profit IoT consortia play a major role in driving requirements for these standards and their subsequent testing, certification and marketing. The grey zone is when the consortia get into the standards game. There’s value in making “standards” of standards but it can also be detrimental to the industry at large when they are not made open to the public.

 
In this episode of the IoT Inc Business Show, I discuss the IETF, IEEE, IPSO, the Open Interconnect Consortium, the Thread Group, the Industrial Internet Consortium and the AllSeen Alliance with panelists Carsten Bormann, Amine Chigani, Michael Koster and Michael Richardson.
 

Like podcast 8, this podcast is a little different than my typical format. It was recorded at the gogoNET LIVE! 5 conference during the Panel Discussion: Making Sense of Standards Bodies, Alliances, Associations and Consortia. I discuss the IETF, IEEE, IPSO, the Open Interconnect Consortium, the Thread Group, the Industrial Internet Consortium and the AllSeen Alliance with panelists Carsten Bormann, Amine Chigani, Michael Koster and Michael Richardson.

 

As part of this podcast series I have interviewed all the alliances/groups/consortia mentioned in this show but this panel discussion provides a useful “outside” perspective on the role of these organizations in the IoT industry.

 

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Episode

 

  • Who are the influential standards groups and consortia in IoT today
  • The underbelly of the IETF standardization process
  • The role of the open source community in standards development
  • Filling in the gaps – the vital relationship between standards organizations and the non-profit consortia of the Internet of Things
  • The underbelly of IoT consortia standardization process
  • Reasons why companies get involved in the various IoT alliances/groups/consortia

There are five main IoT alliances/consortiums/groups focused on the Internet of Things and I interview them all. The Internet Protocol for Smart Object (IPSO) Alliance –episode E3 has been around for a while but the Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC) – episode 9, the Thread group, the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and the Allseen Alliance have sprung up recently. Depending on your focus, one or more of these organizations and are worth looking into when starting your IoT journey. In this episode of the IoT Inc Business Show, I discuss the third organization, the Thread Group, with Skip Ashton.

 
In this episode of the IoT Inc Business Show, I discuss the third organization, the Thread Group, with Skip Ashton.
 

Skip is VP of Software at Silicon Labs where he’s responsible for the software for their MCUs, ZigBee and their short range wireless chips. He’s also Vice President of Technology at the Thread group. The Thread group is a not-for-profit organization responsible for Thread technology, education and certification.

 

The Thread Group is focused on the home and believes that,Thread Internet of Thingslike 802.11 (WiFi Alliance) and 802.15.1 (Bluetooth SIG), a third radio, 802.15.4 is in need of a group to support it. The easiest way to think of Thread is that it is the WiFi for low-powered networks in the home. Sound like Zigbee? Well, it is, except unlike its antiquated, 15 year old counterpart, it’s modern and based on existing standards like the IPv6. The goal of the Thread Group is that when you see their logo on a product, it will transparently talk to other Thread-logo’d products – right out of the box.

 

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Episode

 

  • Why the Thread group was started
  • Why Zigbee can’t compete
  • Why it’s most compared to the WiFi Alliance
  • Why the Thread Group is needed even though the standards are already available
  • The three levels of membership – what you get and how much they cost
  • Details on their certification plans and their harness
  • The Thread Group’s intellectual property policy

In this episode of the IoT Inc Business Show, I discuss the second organization, the Open Interconnect Consortium, with Guy Martin.
 

Guy is Senior Strategist for the Samsung Open Source Group and has over 20 years of experience in software engineering, technical marketing and community management. He’s also Head of Digital Marketing at the Open Interconnect Consortium. The OIC is a non-profit founded by leading tech companies with the goal of defining the connectivity and interoperability requirements for the billions of devices that will make up the Internet of Things.

 

The OIC has a broad scope — abstract everything below the application layer for all IoT industries… that’s all. Their approach make a lot of sense — a tag team of a standard and an open source implementation. It’s a lot of work but if they pull it off, it could advance the state of the IoT industry by years, by tearing down IoT’s silos and custom fortifications. Of course the devil is in the details so listen to this episode to see if the OIC is right for your company.

 

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Episode

 

  • Why the OIC was started
  • The OIC’s vision of building an Interstate highway between all IoT verticals
  • Why Thread is not a competitor, their liaison agreement with the IIC and why they think they have a better solution than the Allseen Alliance
  • IoTivity – their open source project based on the Apache 2.0 licensing and governance model
  • The three levels of membership – what you get and how much they cost
  • Why OIC believes a RESTful API is a better choice than a DBus daemon architecture
  • Details on their certification plans and how it relates to their brand promise
  • The OIC’s intellectual property policy

OK, I admit it, this is going to be a bit of a geekfest but application protocols are an important topic to understand if you want to understand how IoT works. Protocols are the lifeblood of an IoT system and as we are about to find out, there are a few different types to choose from – each with their own characteristics and infrastructure requirements.

 
In this episode of the IoT Business show, we discuss CoAP, XMPP, RESTful HTTP, MQTT and DDS and our panelists are: Steve Jennis, Dev Bhattacharya, Carsten Bormann and Michael Richardson.
 

This podcast is a little different than our typical format. It was recorded at the gogoNET LIVE! 5 conference, this past November, during the Panel Discussion: Top 5 Application Protocols in IoT Today. We discuss CoAP, XMPP, RESTful HTTP, MQTT and DDS and our panelists are: Steve Jennis, Dev Bhattacharya, Carsten Bormann and Michael Richardson.

 

And yes, this is another technical episode, in fact, it’s a deep dive. Bear with me, we still have a number of techy podcasts to go but you’ll appreciate your understanding once we get to the business side of the house.

 

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Episode

 

  • OK to have different protocols because they each have different characteristics.
  • For real-time, DDS is the right protocol (or system is a better description) but it carries with it robust infrastructure requirements.
  • There are two types of protocols: data centric vs. message (or event) centric.
  • Look at the heritage of each protocol before choosing it – will provide a good understanding of its character
  • Multiple protocols will exist so we will need to translat between them. When you choose your main protocol, choose one that carries information with it, as well as the data, so it can be converted without loss

Episode 7

 

Meet IoT’s three layers of protocols… the media layer, otherwise known as the physical layer or radio, the network layer and the application layer. Important because they make up the network stack that transports data from the sensor to the cloud. Important because they are standardized. In this episode of the IoT Business show, Michael Richardson delivers a masterclass on everything you need to know about IoT’s three networking layers.

 
In this episode of the IoT Business show, Michael Richardson delivers a masterclass on everything you need to know about IoT’s three networking layers.
 

Michael is an open source and open standards consultant who has been designing Internet connected products and security systems since the early 90s. He has authored a number of IoT related RFCs, and co-chairs the IETF working group on mesh networking.

 

Layer 2 is IP (Internet Protocol). Don’t even think about anything else. Layers 1 and 3 are selected to support your particular application but ensure they adhere to one of the standards. Customization and silos are out, and the “lego” approach, as coined by Michael, is in. To enable scale and security while reducing cost and risk, the layers of your communication stack need to snap into place.

 

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Episode

 

  • The lego approach to networking
  • Key considerations about the media layer
  • Radio frequency and antenna trade offs
  • CoAP in a nutshell
  • The Wild West of application protocols
  • The advantages to move application protocols closer and closer to the edge
  • The media, network and application protocols used in the following use-cases:
    • Wearables
    • Intelligent pills
    • Smart basketballs
    • Connected tires
    • Pipeline monitoring
    • Precision farming
    • Smart Grid
