By guest blogger Valerie Scarsellato The manufacturing industry is evolving quickly, and it’s always an eye-opening experience to learn firsthand from experts what’s happening on the factory floor. As in many sectors, the Internet of Things (IoT) is providing factories with a wide range of optimization and business transformation opportunities. I recently had the chance to connect with two experts from…

By Ron Breault I recently traveled to Chicago to attend Light Reading’s “Big Telecom Event” – a great new industry trade show bringing together software and network equipment providers, with the companies who operate and maintain the networks.  I was crazy busy at the Wind River booth, giving continuous, live demonstrations of our Wind River Carrier Grade Communications Server product. …
Would you jailbreak a connected device that was part of you?

Would you jailbreak a connected device that was part of you?

By Mychal McCabe And if you wouldn't, would your teenager? In my previous blog post (Is the Internet our best metaphor for the IoT?), I explored the implications of considering the emerging Internet of Things --with its billions of devices, millions of which might be physically connected to people-- in the way we understand the internet we have today. This…

Writing a Book on Simulation Takes Time

By Jakob Engblom For the past half a year, I must admit to slacking off badly in my Simics blogging. The reason is that I have been directing my creative energies into writing a book about Simics together with Daniel Aarno, a long-time Simics colleague from Virtutech and Intel. The book is coming out towards the end of 2014, and…

Cleared for Take-off: A Real Life Example

By Jeff Gowan Certification is an important, although often costly, part of getting new equipment to market. The certification process itself can be arduous but one also has to consider the amount of time and resources spent to adequately prepare for the certification. Simulation is a way to dramatically reduce the cost of preparing for certification, while at the same time increasing the likelihood of certifying. For…

Is the Internet our best metaphor for the IoT?

By Mychal McCabe Last week Dave Evans (@DaveTheFuturist) tweeted about a search engine for the Internet of Things called Thingful.  In the interview that Dave referenced, there's discussion of how to build a search engine for connected devices at scale, and whether or not crawling is the right model to apply to the findability challenges and opportunities of the emerging IoT. That same…
