Photonics is a key enabler of the Internet of Things
Without photonics, the interconnectedness of physical devices and their ability to share and analyze information about their surroundings would not be possible.

For its implementation the Internet of Things relies heavily on sensor technology. Sensors need to be small, robust and energy efficient to be embedded in machines, appliances, buildings and infrastructure and succesfully collect data over large periods of time.

Fibre optic sensors – manufactured using photonics technology – are not only more sensitive than existing electromagnetic sensors, but also faster operating, better able to withstand harsh conditions and immune to electromagnetic interference.

Some of the most significant photonics IoT applications are: communications, transportation, environmental monitoring, smart homes, factories, and gadgets.

The IoT event consists of several workshops where endusers and suppliers will meet and discuss what is needed for Internet of Things and how photonics can support this.

2016 is the year the Internet of Things entered the mainstream

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”

Is Internet of Things a bad thing? Interview with Brenno de Winter, speaker at IoT Event 2016

At the age of 5, de Winter wrote his first computer program. The opportunities and risks of ICT play a significant role in his career ever since. He is mostly known to the public by revealing the poor state of data protection in the Netherlands in unconventional ways (e.g. Lektober).

On June 7-8, 2016, during the 5th edition of the Internet of Things Event at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, de Winter will talk in his keynote about “Security and Internet of Things”. Continue reading “Is Internet of Things a bad thing? Interview with Brenno de Winter, speaker at IoT Event 2016”

AT&T report, Cybersecurity Insights: The CEO’s Guide to Securing the Internet of Things

The rapid rise of a new generation of connected, intelligent devices — collectively known as the Internet of Things or IoT — is more than just the latest digital disruption to impact businesses of all sizes. The IoT presents vast opportunities for organizations to improve internal efficiencies, serve customers better, enter new markets, and even build new business models.

More IoT devices are coming online each and every day. Through connected devices, health care is improving patient care; for example, a diabetic patient’s blood sugar level can now be monitored remotely, enabling a quick response to a possible life-threatening situation. Read more
