Enterprises are spending as much on the Internet of Things as on cloud, mobility and analytics, according to Vodafone’s annual research into the sector.
The operator’s 2016 IoT Barometer found that respondents are dedicating 24 percent of their IT budgets to the IoT.
This is slightly more than is being allocated to mobility (23 percent), cloud (23 percent) and analytics (22 percent).
The survey covered 1,096 people in 17 countries across nine industry verticals. Continue reading “2016 is the year the Internet of Things entered the mainstream”
Photonics is playing the enabling role for sensors and data transport to create the IOT. In this talk we will elaborate on the role of photonics sensors for data generating devices for IOT. Photonics sensing is becoming more important and especially sensors for monitoring the environment are. An example of a fine dust sensor will be given which has enabled community sensing as well as sensing for improving the work conditions in construction work by ISENSIT. Data centers have double growth numbers already and this will continue in the coming years. The datacenters are the physical location for the IOT Cloud. The data transport is having similar growth numbers and the photonic components are the enablers for the miniaturization, energy reduction and bandwidth needs in the data centers. Examples will be given on these components and the importance of photonics will be described by the unique lasers being developed by VTEC and Sinochip for data transport in data centers.

You loved 3G and eventually migrated to 4G, but does 5G get you excited? It probably doesn’t. After all, who needs to send a SnapChat, a tweet, an SMS or an email any faster than is already possible? Continue reading “5G & IoT: How ultra-fast networks will change the Internet of Things”
As the data-driven revolution in business and industry continues, companies now have more data than ever before and an incredible range of opportunities to transform multiple operations across the enterprise.
But too many businesses remain locked into “old-school” processes and patterns in terms of how they use their data assets. Continue reading “The Rise of the IoT: How the Cloud Enables New Data Uses”
Have you heard about the Internet of Things (IoT)? Although critics sometimes dismiss it as nothing more than “put a chip in it,” I believe that the concept builds upon some long-term technology trends and that there’s something really interesting and valuable going on.
To me, the most relevant trends are the decreasing cost of mass-produced compute power, the widespread availability of IP connectivity, and the ease with which large amounts of information can be distilled into intelligence using any number of big data tools and techniques: Continue reading “Amazon Launches AWS IoT – Cloud Services for Connected Devices”
