IoT Data Connectivity, System Integrators, and Dev Kits
Steve Brumer, Partner at 151 Advisors and IoT expert, Chris Hare join host Jeff Mucci for a rousing discussion on IoT trends and news. This episode of IoT Innovation from RCR Wireless focuses on The Internet of Things versus the Internet of Data;
IoT Networks – Further complicating the IoT connectivity ecosystem, publicly traded Silver Springs Networks (NYSE: SSNI) recently introduced “Starfish”, an international Wireless IPv6 Network Service for the Internet of Things (IoT) with goal of enabling commercial enterprises, cities, utilities, and developers to access a reliable, secure, and scalable IoT network service with service level agreements (SLAs) that meet their needs.
Companies looking to deploy IoT solutions will need to select between LTE, Sigfox, LoRa, Starfish and Ingenu connectivity. Satellite offerings will soon join the mix of licensed and unlicensed IoT connectivity options to consider.
System Integrators – Launching IoT on a global scale is a complex undertaking. Big companies like doing business with big companies. As such, system integrators like Accenture who recently acquired industrial IoT specialist Cimation and IBM, who recently announced opening an IoT lab in Munich, will be the “go to” partners for major industry leaders looking to “digitize” their business.
IoT developer toolkits and boards -Orange, Imagination Technologies, Verizon Wireless and Raspberry Pi have recently announced new or enhanced IoT developer toolkits. Which begs the question – Where do we start to develop IoT solutions?
