The Internet of Things (IoT) Show with Bruce Sinclair

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

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 has been around for a while but the Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC), the Thread group, the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and the Allseen Alliance have sprung up recently.

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.

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

Episode 6

 

In broad strokes, the software required for an IoT deployment can be grouped into four classes: embedded software for sensors and gateways, networking or the IoT platform (communication, rules and sometimes interpretation) data management & analytics and of course the IoT application. In this episode of the IoT Inc Business Show, I discuss the first class, embedded software for sensors or more specifically sensor operating systems with Zach Shelby and the inevitable evolution of these disparate classes into an IoT software ecosystem.

Zach is VP of Marketing for Internet of Things at ARM – but don’t let that fool you – he’s a serious techie at heart. He’s worked on IoT standards, cofounded the start-up, SenSiNode (acquired by ARM), where he acted as CEO and CTO and has co-authored a book on 6LowPAN with Carsten Bormann.

 

Today a substantial amount of time and money goes into stitching together the four classes of IoT software into a single Internet of Things product or service. Furthermore the software is usually written to a specific set of hardware and cloud interfaces. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were IoT ecosystems, like Android and iOS in the mobile space? Zach believe the trend for 2015 is the IoT software ecosystems. Me, I’m not as sure it will come that quickly but I like the idea. Listen to this episode to understand the business ramifications of sensor software today and the implications of upcoming IoT ecosystems.

 

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Episode

 

  • The complementary roles of standards bodies and IoT alliances/consortiums/groups
  • The three types of operating systems found in microcontrollers
  • Examples of the most popular low power operating systems today
  • The uniqueness of real-time operating systems and why they are going to be around for some time yet
  • The IoT software ecosystem
    • Definition
    • Functionality
    • Today’s choices and where more will come from in the future
  • Business advice on choosing your IoT software

Episode 5

 

In part 1 we discussed the sensor selection process and the costs involved. If you haven’t listened to the last episode, you should but it’s not a prerequisite. In part 2 of my interview with Scott Nelson we finish talking sensor costs and move into sensor security, the untold risks when incorporating sensors and the expected evolutionary path sensor tech will take.

Scott is Logic PD’s CTO and executive vice president. He has over 25 years of technology and product experience across a variety of industries. Over the last 10 years, Scott has been helping to define and develop Logic PD’s connected device offerings – and has experience in delivering solutions from design and engineering all the way through manufacturing and aftermarket services.

 

The biggest risk a company faces when incorporating IoT into their products or deploying it into their processes, is not having an airtight plan before doing so. The Requirements Document is the single biggest responsibility of the company and has the biggest impact in reducing risk. Dovetailing from the IoT Business Plan, the Requirement Doc provides all partners involved a clear picture of what is needed.

 

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Episode

 

  • The best places on the Internet to find sensor
  • Why there are not as many wireless sensor available today as you would expect
  • Major cost considerations when purchasing sensors
  • Security issues to consider when purchasing sensors
  • Three motivations for sensor security
  • Risks to consider when purchasing sensors
  • Why it’s so important for the customer to develop a solid IoT requirements doc
  • The future of sensors – in hardware and software

Episode 4

 

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 a 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.

Over the last 10 years, Scott has been helping to define and develop Logic PD’s connected device offerings – and has experience in delivering solutions from design and engineering all the way through manufacturing and aftermarket services.

 

Sensors can cost anywhere from 50 cents to a few thousand dollars, or do they? It depends on your definition of sensor and in IoT that definition is changing. Today we include the components that sense (transducer) and convert the raw data into something meaningful plus the components that communicate what’s meaningful to the network or IoT platform. And in some cases the connected product is the sensor since that’s its main purpose.

This is part 1 of my interview with Scott. Part 2 continues to discuss sensor deployment considerations, standardization, risks, security, and future trends.

 
 

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Episode

 

  • How a product integrator differs from a system integrator
  • Why the value of IoT is at the edges
  • All the variables that affect the cost of a sensor
  • Factors involved in the build or buy decision
  • Logic PD’s buy versus build percentage breakdown for sensors
  • How much sensors cost and the sensor cost histogram
  • Cost differential for making a product a connected product

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.

 
Mike Fahrion explains not only the anatomy of today’s connected sensor, but also why we’re moving to a layered communication stack.
 

Mike is the director of product management at B&B Electronics and the company’s Internet of Things strategist. He is an expert in data communications, with 20 years of design and application experience at the “edge” of networks in remote, harsh or uncontrolled environments. Mike is a speaker and author and has a newsletter, eConnections, which has over 50,000 monthly subscribers.

 

Silo’d communication of the M2M age doesn’t scale. Abstracting communication into 3 layers: the media layer (the physical hardware – wired and wireless), the communication layer (the way the data is organized before being sent) and the application layer (raw data augmented with meta or semantic information,) simplifies and scales the usage of IoT data by separating how the data was produced from how it is consumed – just like today’s internet apps.

 
 

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Episode

 

  • The networking differences between SCADA of M2M fame and today’s IoT networking technology – it gets down to semantics, storage and scale.
  • Why it’s important to separate the producer of the data with the consumer of the data.
  • How businesses adopting IoT usually have one of two competencies needed to deploy and how they compensate.
  • The real-world issues with standardization
  • Sensor pricing – what you should expect to pay per sensor class.
  • The two main factors that affect the price of your sensors.
  • Other costs to consider beyond the cost of the connected sensor.
  • The evolution of carriers and their approach to putting their brand on IoT.
  • How new equipment sensing is different from sensing in the industrial space.
