IoT Platforms represents those systems (software, hardware, and middleware) that enable IoT network, device, application, and service management. This includes connectivity, device administration, identity management, permissions control, data management, APIs, SDKs, and more.
Many of the initial IoT Platforms are purpose-built. Longer term, Mind Commerce sees the need for more General Purpose IoT Platforms as there is certain functionality that will be important to handle the many and varied functions involved in IoT management.
The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, today issued comments (pdf) regarding the Internet of Things (IoT) to the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).
The flow of personal data across borders has been a contentious issue recently—and one that will see important developments in the coming months. As European leaders prepare to implement a new approach to regulating online transfers of data to and from the U.S., there is a lot at stake for both small and large companies.
CSPs and the Telecom API Ecosystem
Application Programming Interfaces enable network operators to capitalize on existing network infrastructure to facilitate third-party creation of an array of business opportunities for carriers on a global basis.
What is an API?
Mobile cellular operators are making plans for Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), which enables cloud computing capabilities and an IT service environment at the edge of the cellular network. As part of the Mind Commerce "Computing at the Edge" series, Fog Computing and Data Management issues and challenges are introduced in this document.
‘Speed is just a question of money: how fast do you want to go?’ is an old hot-rodder’s saying. And it also applies to telcos and MNOs. They have invested heavily in their 4G and LTE networks, embracing virtualization to enable faster, more agile and scalable deployments that can keep pace with the explosion in subscriber data traffic and consumption, while keeping control of their overall CAPEX and OPEX costs. Even though these investments have already given us mobile connectivity of unprecedented speed and pervasiveness, they have only laid the foundation
Security in IoT has now become a key priority as solutions are becoming more main stream and both the potential risk and magnitude of impact are becoming significant. Incidences from 2014 and earlier regarding IoT have represented not only a breach of trust but also a threat to personal and enterprise data security.
A new report published by Beecham Research helps enterprise companies to match their Internet of Things (IoT) applications to the most appropriate public connectivity services to enable them. The report, ‘An Introduction to LPWA Public Service Categories: Matching Services to IoT Applications’, also proposes a new name for this new class of providers.
Current telecommunications technology is constantly improving. With every generation of wireless network, carriers make improvements to meet data demand, speeds increase, and new capabilities and applications of mobile networks arise. Cell towers, with a few antennas per base station, have been the backbone of the industry, standing as points of reception and transmission of data on radio airwaves. Today’s top-of-the-line 4G wireless networks’ base stations have the capacity to communicate with up to four users at a time on a given frequency.
Connected vehicle technology is rapidly evolving to encompass Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I), Vehicle-to-Device (V2D), and Vehicle-to-Pedestrian (V2P) signaling and communications. This research examines the V2V and V2X market including technologies, solutions, and major players.
