How to Use Kong Gateway With K3s For IoT and Edge Computing on Kubernetes

Once upon a time, we had these giant structures where thousands of people would congregate to share ideas, pamphlets filled to the margins with buzz words and cheap, branded t-shirts. Yep, tech conferences – oh what a relic of the past that I miss. It used to be part of my job to attend these.


Production Process Optimization with the inray OPCUA Router and InfluxDB

In a factory environment, collecting data to gain useful insights from various sources is challenging because it requires connecting to many different types of automation systems, plcs and devices that often speak different languages. This is the problem that German industrial software company, inray (specialized in data communication between software systems and components in Industry 4.0, IoT and IIoT) set out to solve for its customers.


Leveraging IoT to target pain points in the healthcare industry

Five worthy reads is a regular column on five noteworthy items we’ve discovered while researching trending and timeless topics. Most healthcare facilities already use the Internet of Things (I0T) to make their environment a more efficient and safer place, and this week, we show you how IoT is revolutionizing the healthcare industry. As the world’s population grows, so does the need for quality medical assistance and healthcare.


Using Foglight to collect data from IoT Sensors with MQTT

The IoT, Internet of Things, has arrived. Sensors are everywhere, collecting more and more data about us and the world around us. Temperature, Humidity, Fluid Levels, Traffic counts, the status of devices and things like doors and elevators are being collected and distributed all around us. The question now is "What do we do with all that data?


3 IoT Protocols to Watch in 2020

As we roll into the next decade and IoT becomes commonplace in most organizations, requirements for connectivity will change. Over the last decade of Wi-Fi, we’ve seen a push for faster speeds (high throughput and very high throughput) and recently the ability for greater capacity (high efficiency). Wireless IoT protocols have a different focus. Those requirements are long distance, low power, and flexible architecture. As we consider the next generation, which capabilities rise to the top?


IoT Architecture: 3 Things Every IT Professional Should Know

OK, folks. Let’s be real for a moment and acknowledge that everybody, every professional, and definitely every vendor out there is tossing out the phrase “IoT” like flyers on the Las Vegas strip. As an industry, we tend to use IoT to describe a breadth of networked devices, most often headless—those without a user attached—such as cameras, door entry systems, and HVAC controls.


Updates for the Edge - From Hours to Minutes - Sneak Preview

My name is Kat Cosgrove, and I’m a Developer Advocate at JFrog. Before that, I was an engineer on JFrog’s IoT team. Our goal is to bring DevOps to the edge, because it shouldn’t be as difficult to update these kinds of devices as it currently is. In pursuit of this goal, we found a lot of interesting solutions that we could bring into a CI/CD pipeline for embedded Linux devices, and eventually built a rather flashy proof of concept that put several of these solutions on display.


How LineMetrics Uses InfluxDB to Launch Its IoT Monitoring Platform

“What would it be like to have an asset monitoring solution that can be installed within minutes and is independent of all existing IT systems, without endangering existing processes?” LineMetrics was founded in 2012 in Haag, Austria, in response to questions just like this one. LineMetrics developed a complete real-time asset monitoring solution delivered through its end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) platform.


Sumo Logic and NIST team up to secure energy sector IoT

The energy industry used to operate on a simple hub-and-spoke model, in which large power plants would produce energy in a centralized location and distribute it out to consumers. Yet as solar, wind, and other small-scale renewable energy sources take hold in the market, that hub-and-spoke model is being replaced by a complex grid of interconnected devices.

Unleash your IoT Development tools with WSL

Francesco Buccoli, Microsoft Marco Dal Pino, SoftJam See how easily a set of Linux tools for IoT could be perfectly integrated in a development pipeline, as part of an industrial process that makes devices ready to be used. To achieve this, we'll leverage on some containerized solution hosted on Azure along with standard IoT industry tools, all driven by Visual Studio Code and GitHub.
