Edge AI in a 5G world - part 4: How your business can benefit from 'smart cell towers'

In part 1 we talked about the industrial applications and benefits that 5G and fast compute at the edge will bring to AI products. In part 2 we went deeper into how you can benefit from this new opportunity. In part 3 we focused on the key technical barriers that 5G and Edge compute remove for AI applications. In this part we will summarise the IoT use cases that can benefit from smart cell towers and how they will help businesses focus their efforts on their key differentiating advantage.

The DevOps guide to IoT projects

Traditional development methods do not scale into the IoT sphere. Strong inter-dependencies and blurred boundaries among components in the edge device stack result in fragmentation, slow updates, security issues, increased cost, and reduced reliability of platforms. This reality places a major strain on IoT players who need to contend with varying cycles and priorities in the development stack, limiting their flexibility to innovate and introduce changes into their products, both on the hardware and software sides.

How to launch IoT devices - Part 4: When to ask for help

(This blog post is part of a 5 part series, titled “How to launch IoT devices”. It will cover the key choices and concerns when turning bright IoT ideas into a product in the market. Sign up to the webinar on how to launch IoT devices to get the full story, all in one place.) First part: Why does IoT take so long? Second part: Select the right hardware and foundations Third part: IoT devices and infrastructure


Self-Service Analytics for the Shop Floor [Part 2] - A Practical Example using MQTT

In the first part of this blog article, I introduced key concepts surrounding data ingestion for the industrial Internet of Things, the role and importance of metrics and self-services capabilities for shop floor personnel. So let's see how this looks in practice and how the knowledge of a process or control engineer can be turned into action.


IoT Devices Designed by the World's Largest Manufacturers Infected with Malware

Researchers at TrapX Security recently discovered three of the world's largest manufacturers with IoT devices running Windows 7 infected with malware in an alleged supply chain attack. The company identified a cryptocurrency miner on numerous IoT devices, including automatic guided vehicles, a smart TV and a printer. All of these attacks are said to be a part of the same campaign.

Here's How the Internet of Things is Transforming Healthcare

Industry 4.0 technology is transforming industry all over the world. Digital innovations such as data, virtual reality, automation, and robotics are all helping brands create products and services and deliver them to customers in better and more efficient ways than ever before. One of the most useful elements of Industry 4.0 technology comes from the Internet of Things.


Use your IoT data to create a better customer experience

Customers are engaging with more connected devices than ever before—they’re getting around on smart electric scooters, slyly reading text messages on Apple Watches during meetings, and telling Amazon Alexa which Cardi B song to play next—all of which is part of a phenomenon known as the Internet of Things (IoT). And, this is only the tip of the hyper-connected iceberg. The International Data Corporation (IDC) estimates that there will be 41.6 billion connected devices in 2025.

Getting Started with Kubernetes using MicroK8s

Single-node deployments of Kubernetes are more common than what one would expect. In some scenarios, single-node clusters make much more sense. For development purposes or testing, there’s no need to deploy a full-blown production-grade cluster. Single-node deployments are also handy for appliances and IoT applications since they have a much smaller footprint. Enter MicroK8s, a tool by Canonical that enables you to easily deploy a lightweight single-node cluster in your local environment.
