Titanium Strong at MWC

By Ron Breault After the usual frenzy that is Mobile World Congress, I’ve returned home from Barcelona and have had time to reflect on the week’s frenetic activity.  What a great show it was for Wind River, and our Titanium Server program in particular! I started working on Wind River Titanium Server in 2013, when ETSI NFV was still in…
Care in the Cloud – Rx Helix IoT

Care in the Cloud – Rx Helix IoT

By Neil McLellan Back in 1962, 54 people gathered in Baltimore Maryland – the first official meeting of the Healthcare Information and Management System Society, more commonly known as HIMSS. More than a half-century later, HIMSS has grown well beyond its humble beginnings as a 10 tabletop exhibition and conference, to accommodate well over 1300 exhibitors, 500 speakers, and over…
Time Sensitive Networks and IIoT

Time Sensitive Networks and IIoT

By Mark Hermeling The Internet of Things (IoT) is all about data, getting access to data, understanding that data and then using that data to act. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is no different, it extends the IoT into devices that control many of the items that make our lives comfortable. Power plants, water processing plants, wind farms, manufacturing…

What is CVE-2015-7547?

By Andreea Volosincu Some of the uncovered common vulnerabilities capture the world’s attention to the point of being attributed a nickname (e.g. heartbleed). Others are fixed and get popular just in engineering circles. CVE-2015-7547 is one for engineers to know about. The latest reported common vulnerability has not received a nickname, but this is not to say CVE-2015-7547 isn’t important. Exploring…
Tearing down the silos – collaboration in IoT

Tearing down the silos – collaboration in IoT

By Neil McLellan This past week I had the pleasure of speaking on a panel on the potential impacts of the Internet of Things (IoT) on the wind industry at the American Wind Energy (AWEA) Operation and Maintenance Seminar, in San Diego. I was speaking on the panel as a networking expert and not an expert in wind, renewables, or power…
Will New CRAN Architecture be the Trigger for Widespread Deployments?

Will New CRAN Architecture be the Trigger for Widespread Deployments?

By Charlie Ashton Over the past couple of years, “CRAN” has become a term with multiple meanings. Depending on the author and the context, the “C” might stand for “Cloud”, “Centralized”, “Cooperative” or even “Clean."  In fact we posted a blog last year asking whether it was time to refine these acronyms to get some clarity. Regardless of which “C”…

From IoT hype in 2015 to reality in 2016

From IoT hype in 2015 to reality in 2016

By Gareth Noyes The Internet of Things (IoT) has had a major impact on the electronics market this year, and it looks like 2015 marks a tipping point. In much the same way that there was a lot of debate over the definition of cloud computing in the early days, so, a similar phenomenon has happened with IoT. The discussion…

Titanium Edge Combines High Reliability with Cost-Effective Deployments

By Charlie Ashton Over the past year or so, a strong consensus seems to have emerged within the telecom industry that the #1 use case for early deployments of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) will be Virtualized Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE). In this post we’ll briefly summarize why vCPE represents such an interesting business proposition for service providers and introduce Wind…
