Key Areas of Focus for the Internet of Things (IoT)

Communications, Content, and Commerce via IoT will involve new technologies, services, and business models

Telecom Engine and its research partner, Mind Commerce, see a few key areas of focus for the Internet of Things (IoT) that will require special attention over the course of the next three years on the part of software, platform, and infrastructure providers. 

Key Success Factors for IoT in Manufacturing

Applying Big Data and analytics will be the basis of creating more and improved operations

Today, most advanced version of operating machines are using computer aided systems and controls. Today machines are programmed to perform in synch with each other on production line. The vision of the future is that such machines will communicate and work with each other and will be controlled using internet or wireless infrastructure i.e. IoT.

With abundant energy, Iceland woos power-hungry data centers

Hoping its cool climate and cheap reliable power can entice operators

Reuters

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - As it emerges from financial isolation, Iceland is trying to make a name for itself again, this time in the business of data centers -- warehouses that consume enormous amounts of energy to store the information of 3.2 billion internet users.

The island has long been associated with hi-tech trends such as the 'Eve' video game, the genome deCode project or singer Bjork's use of software as well as its links to filesharing site Pirate Bay, the Silk Road online black market and Wikileaks.

New SAP software aims to help companies make sense of data deluge

Handles data from customer feedback, and from sensors in products, vehicles and networks

Reuters

TUEBINGEN (Reuters) - SAP unveiled a new product on Tuesday that promises to help businesses make sense of a deluge of real-world data from retail transactions, transport systems and social media, hoping to persuade customers to switch from rival database suppliers. SAP HANA Vora, as the database query software will be known, aims to give businesses greater insights into the vast volumes of data organizations are collecting from customer feedback, along with sensors installed in products, vehicles and networks.

Internet of Things (IoT) and Telecom APIs

IoT represents the logical evolution of the cloud and big data

A huge category, the Internet of Things (IoT) refers to uniquely identifiable objects and their virtual representations in an Internet-like structure.  IoT represents the logical evolution of the cloud and big data: the idea to enable sensor-equipped "things" to communicate with one another in meaningful, actionable ways, such as the following examples:

Telecom API Aggregator Companies to Manage Core APIs

The aggregator role is gaining momentum as developers create more innovative services

Aggregators of telecom Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) connect multiple carrier APIs with various other resources.   The main interest groups are API providers and third-party developers. The API aggregator role is gradually gaining momentum within the market as developers create more innovative services, and as operators can also provide mash-ups as end-products. Carriers may perceive aggregators as a threat, as an operator may suffer from a dependency on third-party services, and uncertainty in the provided services and APIs.

The Challenge of Delivering OTT Video Quality Today, and into the Future

How do we ensure sustainable quality of service and quality of experience across the entire network?

Quality measurement is essential for any supply chain to be successful.  Video is no different.  A breakdown in the system causes unhappy customers, damages brand, and can ultimately be the downfall of the entire business. 

Today, we are seeing increasing quality expectations; UHD/4K, and High Dynamic Range (HDR), just to name a few.  And, as other new products and capabilities enter the market, every one of them will need performance and interoperability standards to properly integrate them and create value for the total system.

Carmakers to tech partners: Keep your hands off our data

Revenues from connected cars estimated to grow to $40 billion a year worldwide by 2018

Reuters

SAN FRANCISCO/DETROIT (Reuters) - Carmakers are limiting the data they share with technology partners Apple Inc and Google Inc through new systems that link smartphones to vehicle infotainment systems, defending access to information about what drivers do in their cars.    

Big Data for Telcos: cutting OPEX, improving service quality - and deploying services faster

Not just for marketers, Big Data and predictive analytics and techniques combine to make large carrier networks more resilient

Big Data has won acclaim – and rightfully so – for helping marketers improve the efficiency of their campaigns, assisting doctors in making diagnoses, fighting fraud, detecting hacker attacks, and even predicting financial markets. While most of the attention has been on consumer applications, Big Data analytics and techniques can be applied to telecommunications and carrier networks as well.

Converging Technologies and Big Data in Telecom

Third-party Applications equal Big Opportunities for Mobile Network Operators

Big Data represents a major inflection point for the ICT and Telecom sectors as it will transform business asset utility and value forever more. It isn’t a revolution or a replacement for the current technologies, but it is rather a valued extension of business assets.
