This year’s winter games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, featured the latest technology almost everywhere you looked – from sensor-filled speed-skating suits, to driverless buses, to digital payment gloves. Robots guided people through the airport. A 5G network debuted. When you combine the games with the ongoing Mobile World Congress, it’s like a three-week glimpse into the future.
Data exchanges are where IoT-generated data sets are combined and then refined through data analytics, and all this information takes on real value. These exchanges are places where organizations partner to identify patterns and draw conclusions about the information or see ways they can monetize the data.
What does the digital edge have to do with payments? The answer lies in the fact that the world has gone digital, which is changing almost every aspect of how payments are processed. The digital edge is enabling payment providers to connect to their customers where they are, to deliver services that are fast and secure.
Planning for the IoT: How the right upfront decisions can mean better performance, scalability and security
While security is a hot topic for the architects of IoT devices and applications, good IoT infrastructure planning shouldn’t stop there, and should also include best practices for IoT interconnection at the digital edge.
At Mobile World Congress 2017 there is a lot of buzz around the massive amounts and types of data that mobile devices will be adding to the deluge of big data traffic that is already traveling over today’s enterprise networks.
The annual Consumer Electronics Show that wrapped up in Las Vegas last week is widely known by its initials, CES, but Time.com suggests the 2017 version could easily have been known as “The IoT Show.” Why? “Just about any product shown will have some form of connectivity.”
In the spring and summer of 1901, something unexpected began to stir in Barcelona’s art world. A strange malaise began to take hold of Pablo Picasso, one of the bright young artists of the European avant-garde. Gone were the vibrant and bright hues that had made his name, and in their place emerged a monochrome view of the world that spoke of melancholy and depression. The Blue Period had begun.
What real case studies can I find where IoT and the cloud really improve age-old industries (keeping our feet on the ground, so to speak)? Because if IoT and the cloud could transform those businesses, it could transform any business.
Virtual reality products are dominating the exhibition at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The term “virtual reality” has been kicked around the industry for years, but until now we’ve never had the processing power, camera technology or connectivity to enable true virtual reality (VR) solutions. And for that reason, there is palpable excitement buzzing through the crowds gathered around the new VR products at the show.
It’s imperative for companies to prepare for this massive increase in traffic now, before it’s a crisis.
