Saving bandwidth with delta firmware updates

Firmware update capability has become a must-have for most devices. Whether to add new features after launch, fix bugs, or urgently patch a security hole, firmware updates gives modern teams the flexibility they need to move fast and react to a changing environment. I’ve written at length about firmware updates in the past, including on Interrupt with a Firmware Update Cookbook and a post about code signing, and even recorded a webinar on the topic.


Monitoring smart city IoT devices with Grafana and Grafana Loki: Inside the Fuelics observability stack

For smart cities of the future, monitoring infrastructure metrics like fuel and water levels is vital to optimizing operations. Fuelics PC designs and deploys battery-operated narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) sensors that monitor fuel, water, waste, and even parking capacity at the edge, then transmit that data to the cloud for easy viewing and monitoring.


Real-Time Energy Management with InfluxDB and eSoftLink IoT Platform

Smart energy IoT platforms are empowering consumers to track energy usage and even control spend based on their next bill’s forecast. Yet eSoftThings, a specialist in the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI), set out to push smart energy management even further, for both consumers and utility companies, through its IoT platform eSoftLink.


Why IoT Can Be a Game-Changer for Digital Customer Experience

The US may be heading for a recession this year. It isn’t slowing down growth in the global Internet of Things (IoT) services market. That’s expected to grow from $163.7 billion in 2021 to $188.8 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.3%, according to Reportlinker.com. The market is expected to reach $340.61 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 15.9%.

NXP & Memfault: Higher Quality, Better Performing IoT Devices with Embedded Observability Webinar

NXP and Memfault have collaborated to give IoT device manufacturers in-field device monitoring, crash reporting, and updating capabilities for faster product development, improved device operation, and reduced direct resource costs. Together, Memfault and NXP are helping IoT developers build smart cities, smart homes, IIoT, and automotive devices to save time and ease the worry of triaging and troubleshooting, allowing them to focus on building value-added features.

Monitor your IoT devices at scale with Datadog Log Management

The Internet of Things (IoT) can be found in a diverse range of devices, including fleets of autonomous vehicles, automobiles, planes, electric charging stations, and voice controllers. These devices are embedded with gateways, electronics, actuators, platform hubs, and cloud-service connectivity, enabling them to exchange data across the physical, network, and application layers that constitute IoT architecture.


Effective IoT security requires collaboration and clarity

When firefighters arrive at burning buildings, they must contain the blaze, rescue inhabitants and keep calm under pressure. As IoT devices are increasingly deployed throughout cities, firefighters could have access to more information that could save more lives and lead to less lost property through use of real-time data about surroundings impacting people in need.

Launching an IoT Device: A Blueprint to Success

About the webinar: Executives and customers expect IoT devices to be delivered on time. And once they are shipped, they expect the devices to work well, last for a long time, and get regular updates that deliver new and unique features. How can product teams meet their deadlines and the growing demands of their customers? In this recorded webinar, Memfault CEO François Baldassari discusses how you can ship your devices on time (or even earlier) without sacrificing quality.

What is Ubuntu Core 22?

IoT manufacturers face complex challenges to deploy devices on time and within budget. Ensuring security and remote management at scale is also taxing as device fleets expand. Ubuntu Core 22 helps manufacturers meet these challenges with an ultra-secure, resilient, and low-touch Operating System, backed by a growing ecosystem of silicon and ODM partners. Ubuntu Core 22 is a minimal, fully containerised Ubuntu 22.04 LTS variant optimised for IoT and edge devices.
