- Eurotech Everyware: Re-Inventing Embedded Computing
The existing tools that support the development of smart networked products are not providing the full measure of value they could. Product OEMs, third party services providers and enterprise users need a unified solution framework that strips out unnecessary complexities and costs, and ultimately, leverages intelligence in devices, network and cloud-based services. An innovative new software platform from Eurotech has the potential to significantly change how our solutions for smart connected devices are designed, deployed and managed.
- Creative Partnerships and Wireless Carriers
Strategists in a wide range of network service providers have finally awakened to the fact that we have entered a new era of connectivity. However, M2M solutions are very complex and often require many players to perform diverse roles. Carriers that choose to go at it alone will have a hard time building market development momentum in the M2M arena. Download here.
How one M2M player is viewing core application development, device management and collaboration for smart connected systems as a unified challenge and addressing that challenge with a single, scaleable solution.
- Designing the Future of Information: The Internet Beyond the Web
See how two unique initiatives— the “Information Commons” of MAYA Design and “Internet Zero” from MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms— offer simple, proven foundations for the intense complexity of a global information economy.
- Securing the Future: Designing Security for the Internet of Things
The dliemma lies in the fact that the network of networks is still quite vulnerable to security issues and the IT community who we trust are working to resolve these challenges are still operating with outdated models that cannot serve the needs of a truly connected world. One company, Mocana has developed a unique approach to networked device security that offers a proven foundation for the complexity of a global information economy.
- Next Generation Platform Innovation In M2M
New machine-to-machine (M2M) solution platforms need to address the true potential for information-driven service innovation and application development. By embedding support automation directly into the fabric of the solution and providing tools for third party application development, new platform technologies can help product manufacturers leverage the continuously evolving relationship between connected products and customer value. This White Paper and supporting research highlights the expanding value of platform innovation for M2M solutions.
- The Future of Smart Services Delivery
Pacific Controls’ technology sidesteps the current marketplace noise and clutter surrounding device connectivity by deploying smart software agents – GBotsTM – as an integral element of their GalaxyTM service delivery platform, thus viewing customer equipment service and system support concerns as a challenge that can be addressed by a single, scale- able solution. In so doing, the company is defining the future of smart systems for buildings, energy and infrastructure.
- Smart Devices and Services Connected by CDMA2000
This paper explores the application opportunities, technology requirements and business benefits arising from machine-to- machine (M2M) communication. Intelligent device networking is the next big thing in information technology. It will enable the transition from “dumb” products to smart products as portals into a whole new world of customer value-creation and “smart services.” CDMA-based wireless networks are at the forefront of this transformation. This paper is for the vast community of play- ers that make up the CDMA2000® M2M ecosystem. M2M solution providers, device suppliers, network operators, system integrators, thought leaders in various vertical markets, and investors will benefit from this exploration.
