Federal Government Transformation
Using Blockchain

By: Scott St. John, Pipeline

There are nearly eight billion people on the planet, but connected devices outnumber us humans two to one. Adoption shows no signs of slowing, as the proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to accelerate. The IoT is creating many new benefits, opportunities, and use cases spanning smart agriculture, appliances, cars, cities, and devices. IoT device manufacturers, solution providers, and telecom service providers are all racing to capture their share of this enormous opportunity. However, these new opportunities also bring a level of risk with them, to both the device and data, that must be taken into consideration…

IoT Device Security
for the Future of Cyber Resilience

By: Dennis Mattoon

We are living in an increasingly digital world with the Internet of Things (IoT) playing a huge role in how we live and work. A wide range of IoT devices can be found in the home, from smart lightbulbs and refrigerators to doorbells and cameras, and in factory or office environments, too. In industrial settings, many machines and devices are connected to streamline processes, enable remote operation, and boost efficiency. But with IoT devices nearing 27.1 billion in 2021, according to Cisco, security must be a key consideration in their development and manufacturing…

Telco-Satellite Collaboration in
the New Space Race

By: Noah Drake

Using a combination of connectivity options such as terrestrial fiber and satellite to deliver content, data or IP is nothing new. What is new and constantly evolving are the technological and economic trends that make such collaborations beneficial to each type of provider. Whether it’s a last-mile option for remote areas or a broadcast service requiring both international and regional delivery, customized hybrid connectivity methods are often the best solution. Customers can mix and match what they need based on their changing production and budget requirements…

Making IoT Intelligent

By: Ken Figueredo

In team sports, each player has a particular role. Team effectiveness depends on individuals performing as a system. This means all members work together as a tight-knit unit. A lack of cohesion leads to inferior performance, which might result from players not being set up with a 'game plan' or individuals being unable to adapt their play intelligently. Internet of Things (IoT) systems are not dissimilar to sporting teams. They involve combinations of connected devices and sensors. Each has a role, either to act on command or to supply data to applications where decision-making occurs…

Fueling Momentum with Secure
IoT Connectivity

By: Yoram Zerahia

The Internet of Things (IoT) has received a lot of hype since 2009, when the number of ‘things’ connected to the Internet surpassed the number of people online worldwide. IoT utilizes processors, modems, software, and other technologies to connect devices to the Internet to gain access to the useful data they can provide. Connected products can be updated with new features and be remotely monitored for performance. In 2010, Ericsson’s former President and CEO Hans Vestberg predicted cellular IoT to reach 50 billion connections in 2020…

Protecting a Precious Resource

By: Trent Ackhurst

Water covers 70 percent of our planet, and it is easy to think that it will always be abundant. However, freshwater—what we drink, bathe in, and irrigate our farm fields with—is incredibly rare. Only three percent of the world’s water is freshwater, and two-thirds of that is tucked away in frozen glaciers or otherwise inaccessible for our use. We have witnessed firsthand that many of our water systems are incredibly stressed, with rivers, lakes, and aquifers drying up or becoming too polluted to use…

Reinventing Private APN for IoT

By: Jonas Bjorklund

In our previous article, Hyperscaling IoT Services, we argued why mobile operators should take a hyperscaler approach to enable the agility and global reach needed to provide cellular IoT connectivity services to demanding enterprise customers. We suggested that mobile operators leave their core network untouched and use services built upon hyperscalers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) to extend their IoT connectivity offering. Here they can add a programmable and flexible layer of policy control, IoT security, and automation on top of their mobile infrastructure…
