Wondering how IoT is being rolled out in cities? Look up… into the light. Streetlights are the perfect stepping stone to produce smart cities. Changing their bulbs to LEDs pay for themselves in 3-5 years but also present the opportunity to build out wireless mesh networks. These elevated networks allow more lighting control/efficiency and provide the foundation for other smart city services such as power and parking. In this episode of The IoT Business Show, I speak with Sterling Hughes about lessons learned in deploying Silversping’s networks in cities around the world. This is encore episode 4, of 4, which originally played in the IPv6 Show podcast.

IP & IoT – It Just Makes Business Sense

The IoT Business Show is brought to you by the Iot-Inc Certified IoT Professional (ICIP) online training & certification program: http://www.iot-inc.com/training


IP rules the Internet, at least the Internet that connects people. Will it dominate the Internet of Things too? There are two endings to this story. In this episode of the IoT Business Show we discuss one such ending with Internet of Things expert, Joachim Lindborg and how his Swedish rationality takes him there. This is encore episode 1, of 4, which originally played in the IPv6 Show podcast.

No matter how we define sensor, we are a long way from a plug and play world. Except for the most rudimentary forms of sensing, you must be prepared to go custom-built. And if that’s the case you must have an understanding of the connected sensor and the build-buy decision. These two paths are different business journeys with different costs to consider. In this episode of the IoT Inc Business Show, I discuss this with Scott Nelson who takes us on a deep dive into the connected sensor to understand the economics involved and the questions to ask during the sensor definition stage.

Sensors from the M2M world are evolving into connected sensors for IoT. Same sensor tech but now the sensor needs to communicate outside of a local and often proprietary network. Goodbye, 35-year-old Modbus, used in SCADA of yesteryear and hello layered communication, needed in the Internet of Things to onboard billions of sensors. In this episode of the IoT Inc Business Show, Mike Fahrion explains not only the anatomy of today’s connected sensor but also why we’re moving to a layered communication stack.

Unravelling the Complexity of Connecting Embedded Sensors in IoT

The IoT Business Show is brought to you by the Iot-Inc Certified IoT Professional (ICIP) online training & certification program: http://www.iot-inc.com/training


It takes a lot of work, behind the scenes work, to establish a successful connection between sensor and IoT Platform. While it’s possible to find off-the-shelf sensor subsystems for common use-cases, often, custom hardware and software design is needed to make the system/connected product/asset operate as desired. In this episode of the IoT Inc Business Show, I get into it with Mark Wright about the who and the what behind the scenes that need to be involved to make it happen.

Adding Sensors and Connectivity to your Product for IoT

The IoT Business Show is brought to you by the Iot-Inc Certified IoT Professional (ICIP) online training & certification program: http://www.iot-inc.com/training


Want to connect your product to the Internet of Things? The first step is giving it senses and then connectivity to the Internet of Things. In this episode of the IoT Inc Business Show, I speak with Adam Justice, a second generation sensors guy who takes us through the two main approaches to get your products, assets or environment on to the next generation Interweb, known as the Internet of Things.

E3: IPSO – IoT Standardization Challenges

Alot of progress has been made in their first six years but there’s more work to be done.  In this episode of the IoT Business show I speak with IPSO’s head honchos to discuss the networking standardization challenges facing the Internet of Things and what they’re going to do about them. This is encore episode 3 of 4, which originally played in the IPv6 Show podcast.

 
I speak with IPSO about the networking challenges facing the Internet of Things and what they’re going to do about them.
 

The IPSO Alliance is a global forum, including many Fortune 500 high tech companies. It serves as a thought leader for the various communities looking to the Internet Protocol as the network to connect Smart Objects.

The challenges facing IP in the Internet of Things six years ago when IPSO was formed sound a lot like the challenges it faces today. But this can be deceiving. Changing an industry as large and complex as IoT will take time, a lot of time. And while IPSO may be out-manned and out-gunned by competing special interest alliances, they are on the right side of technical history. All other networking protocols, over time, will be drowned out by the rising tide of IP and IPv6.

But this is not without its challenges. IP is not an end by a means to an interoperability end. Routing bits between smart objects is a good start but these objects need to be smart enough to operate in different deployments, cracking the current silos they live within. Only then will interoperability foster innovation and lower costs, allowing the Internet of Things to approach its true potential.

 
 

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Episode

 

  • Short overview and history of IPSO
  • Current networking challenges in IoT
  • Work still to be done with IP and IoT
  • The difference between using the Internet’s protocol and its philosophy
  • Thoughts on “network as a service”
  • Challenges in the Industrial Internet of Things
  • Challenges in the consumer Internet of Things
  • The IPSO Challenge 2014

E2: Industrial IoT – Ready for an IP Make-over

Is the Industrial Internet of Things Ripe for an IP Make-over Too?  It all comes down to value.  Value created by getting a better handle on the bottom line or even better, increasing the top line with innovative business models made possible by a strong IP foundation.  In this episode of The IoT Business Show, Rob Bamforth takes us through an analysis of IP’s value proposition in IIoT and the challenges it faces along the way.This is encore episode 2, of 4, which originally played in the IPv6 Show podcast.

 
I speak with Rob about IP’s value proposition and the challenges it faces along the way.
 

Rob is a Principle Analyst for mobile and smart connectivity with UK based business research and analysis house, QuoCirca. He designed and built his own energy efficient house equipped with sensors and actuators and has a side interest in the open platform software company, EcoSteer that captures data from sensors and energy meters for environmental and energy monitoring.

Before being given a sexier name by outsiders, SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) was the origin of what we now call the Industrial Internet of Things.  Built with mostly proprietary networking tech, it was a bottom line management tool, measuring the cost variables in a business’ business model.  Simple serial communication was often adequate and with a 10-20 year lifecycle, there was not need to mess with it.  However something changed over time.  In the consumer world the Internet Protocol was gaining more popularity and employees using SCADA couldn’t help but notice.  But is IP worth the effort to upgrade existing SCADA installations to the Industrial Internet of Things?  It all comes down to value.  Rob makes the point that value is increased when:

 

  • More of the same things are measured/affected for the same cost.
  • Different but related data about things are measured and correlated.
  • As more is measured, a Metcalf law-like value comes into play.
  • Measuring and affecting more data about more things opens a window to innovation with the possibility of contributing to the top line in addition to reducing the bottom line.

 

 
 

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Episode

 

  • IP and finger-held devices
  • The disadvantages of proprietary IoT environments
  • How a strong and open lower layer spurs upper layer innovation
  • The biggest benefit of IPv6 for the Industrial Internet of Things
  • How IP increases value in old-school SCADA environments
