  By Tom Gibbings In this blog post, I’ll pick up where I left off in my last blog post recapping the hot topics of discussion that came up during my IDF poster chat on IoT deployment and the technology stack delivered with edge management capabilities.  Today’s blog post wraps my IDF recap of the conversations with the IoT community…
Is the Internet our best metaphor for the IoT?

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…
Enabling IoT: Part One

Enabling IoT: Part One

By Gigaom Research In celebration of Global IoT Day, we are kicking off a blog series from Gigaom Research which will discuss the architectural models that are driving the Internet of Things (IoT), from simple event-response loops to more-complex structures that make the most of available resources from networks, cloud infrastructure, and embedded devices.  Enjoy! Unlike many other emerging technology…

Making IoT Real With Intelligent Gateways

We’ve been talking a lot about the Internet of Things (IoT) and the opportunities it brings to almost every industry. But how do businesses start making IoT a reality today? We captured a great conversation recently with executives from Intel, McAfee, and Wind River who are on the leading edge of IoT solutions development. In this first segment, Jim Douglas, SVP…

European Utility Week 2013: Critical Infrastructure Security

By AJ Shipley Wind River, Intel, and McAfee recently wrapped up a trip to European Utility Week 2013 in Amsterdam.  Security was a consistent theme across the convention sessions and around the exhibition floor; it’s a topic that everyone knows is incredibly important, but is not entirely sure how to properly address. What I find most interesting when I talk…
Intelligent Platforms for Intelligent Industries

Intelligent Platforms for Intelligent Industries

By Santhosh Nair Today we introduced the latest version of our software platform for the Internet of Things (IoT) – Wind River Intelligent Device Platform (IDP). IDP is targeted at gateways and hubs, providing connectivity, manageability, security and intelligence that  enables companies to kick start building applications that will monitor, track and course-correct your machines and systems. When discussing IDP, it’s…

A Practical Approach to the Internet of Things

The market opportunities around the Internet of Things (IoT) are substantial for Intel,  McAfee, Wind River, along with their ecosystem and the industry at large. But in a practical sense, how should businesses approach IoT? How can they start optimizing their processes and how do they ensure security? I recently caught up with a couple of experts to find out: Adam Burns, Director of Strategic Planning and…
The Future of the RTOS is Driving the Internet of Things

The Future of the RTOS is Driving the Internet of Things

By Bill Graham Real-time operating systems (RTOS) are having to become increasingly sophisticated – they must satisfy performance demands, offer hard real-time response and handle memory constraints, but increasingly they also need to deliver capabilities demanded by the new, highly connected, security conscious, remotely managed world of machine to machine (M2M) networks and the Internet of Things (IoT). Intelligent devices…
A Whole New ‘Internet of Things’ World

A Whole New ‘Internet of Things’ World

By Jens Wiegand The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming not only businesses, but also our lives. The ability of intelligent devices to perceive and respond to the environment around them makes them incredibly valuable for complex decision-making in a broad range of industries. The growth potential is explosive: billions of units are generating more than $1 trillion in revenue…

Confusion Abounds as Buzzwords Converge on Defining Internet of Things

By Gareth Noyes Trends seem to have a life of their own, especially in technology. Clusters of thoughts and ideas converge to re-frame an idea or define something completely new and then buzzwords are born. But before they reach critical mass and gain widespread acceptance, they often go through painful phases where the same words are used, but we get…
