The Future of IoT is Embedded Systems and Real-time Operating Systems (RTOS)

Embedded systems are highly customized, developed and programmed as per user requirements.  Conventional embedded systems are electronic components that possess a microprocessor, peripherals, memory card, and software program that run instructions, operating system and tools (debuggers, static and non-programmable), and follows firmware programming embedded in the micro-chip.

The Evolution of Internet of Things (IoT) Platforms

From Purpose-built to General Purpose

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. 

TIA Issues Comments on IoT Regulation

Emphasizes Need for Open Standards and Technology-Neutrality

Arlington, VA

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).

International Data Flows Face Uncertain Future in Europe

EU’s move last year to strike down the data sharing framework marked a setback for American companies

TIA

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.

Communication Service Providers and Opportunities in Big Data

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?

Fog Computing and Data Management

Introduction

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.

Virtualization – the real driver for 5G networks and IoT

Virtualization will be a vital piece of the puzzle as 5G is rolled out and the IoT grows

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

Securing the IoT

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.

IoT Research Firm Calls for More Emphasis on Enterprise Connectivity Services

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.
