The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly taking shape. Billions of smart devices, from cars and trucks to containers and hospital beds, will create and share data. Data permission security becomes a major concern for enterprises.

The BlackBerry IoT Platform can provide the clients that control, providing a cloud-based solution that lets clients build and manage IoT applications and devices in a secure, efficient, and scalable way.

The BlackBerry IoT Platform provides a modular architecture to rapidly add BlackBerry and third-party services into your IoT applications and, once built, a backbone for these apps and devices to communicate privately.

Hardware
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
Middleware integrates the diverse components of an IoT application by structuring communication, workflows, and business rules.
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Security software provides encryption, access control, and identity protection to IoT solutions from data collection through end-user applications.
Services
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
Number of Case Studies3
Nova Scotia Power Inc. - GPS Functionality
Nova Scotia Power Inc. - GPS Functionality
On the Nova Scotia Power Inc. (NSPI) GIS Connectivity Project, field personnel travel on foot and by vehicle gathering data about asset locations and customer connectivity across the entire electrical distribution infrastructure. However, NSPI could not cover the company's extensive field operations. NSPI needed a secure mobile GIS solution that offered remote data transfer directly to its ARC GIS server software, without requiring additional travel and manual syncing.
Expertech - Capital Tool Inventory
Expertech - Capital Tool Inventory
Costly tools used to splice fiber optic cables are an important part of Expertech’s operational and capitalized expenses, but the company did not have an automated system in place to track their tools and optimize their usage. The existing data in its tracking system was inaccurate and required manual updating, making it essential for the company to implement an efficient process to track and follow up on its capital tool inventory.
GM Global Battery Systems Lab
GM Global Battery Systems Lab
Testing expensive battery prototypes is an around-the-clock job for the engineers at GM’s Global Battery Systems Lab. Excessive heat or high voltage can make batteries unstable or vulnerable to damage. Confirming the reason for the alarm and eliminating fault alerts sometimes requires onsite investigation, often at non-business hours.
Number of Software2
BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse
BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse
The BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse extends the Eclipse development framework to enable Java developers to create BlackBerry applications and MIDlets for BlackBerry devices.
BlackBerry Enterprise Software
BlackBerry Enterprise Software
Securely Enabling the Enterprise of ThingsThe Internet of Things (IoT) is emerging as one of the most significant developments of our time. IoT devices connecting to the enterprise all need to be secured, managed, and enabled by IT. Collectively, these endpoints are the Enterprise of Things, and are driving new levels of business transformation.Data breaches and cybersecurity threats are some of the biggest roadblocks to realizing the potential of the Enterprise of Things. BlackBerry Secure is a comprehensive, mobile-native approach to security that addresses the entire enterprise, from endpoint to endpoint. BlackBerry® offers comprehensive, cloud-enabled software that helps companies manage and secure the Enterprise of Things. Gartner gives BlackBerry Software highest scores in all 6 of 6 use cases of the Critical Capabilities for High-Security Mobility Management.

European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI)
European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI)
The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) is an independent, not-for-profit, standardization organization in the telecommunications industry (equipment makers and network operators) in Europe. ETSI produces globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, converged, broadcast and internet technologies.We have a special role in Europe. This includes supporting European regulations and legislation through the creation of Harmonised European Standards. Only standards developed by the three ESOs (CEN, CENELEC and ETSI) are recognized as European Standards (ENs).We produce different types of standards to meet the different needs of business and society. These needs include:- facilitating trade- enabling economies and efficiencies- achieving interoperability- enhancing consumer protection and confidenceThe progress of innovation requires a balance between collaboration and competition. Standards provide a foundation to achieve this balance and help enable new technologies. We therefore maintain close links with the R&D community and academia and we support the development of new technologies through a variety of mechanisms.
Global Certification Forum (GFC)
Global Certification Forum (GFC)
The Global Certification Forum (GCF) is the organisational backbone to GCF Certification. Founded in 1999, the membership driven Forum brings together technical experts from the world's leading Manufacturers, Operators and the Test Industry. Together members define the certification requirements that really work for the industry - because they have been developed by the industry.Any device incorporating cellular mobile connectivity can be certified:- Featurephones and Smartphones- Tablets- USB Modems- Portable WiFi Hotspots- Embedded Modules- Laptops- Connected Consumer and M2M/IoT devicesThe GCF scheme evolves in sync with developments in mobile technologies and the changing needs of the industry. It is the only device certification scheme that cover all these technologies:- LTE (3GPP)- 3G UMTS (3GPP)- GSM (3GPP)- CDMA2000 (3GPP2)GCF members include leading mobile network operators representing all the key markets worldwide, over 70 device manufacturers and other stakeholders such as test system suppliers and test laboratories.GCF's current priorities are to reduce industry costs and improve end-user experience by:- Promoting adoption of GCF certification by the mobile industry in markets where it is not presently used- Promoting GCF Certification for any product that incorporates mobile connectivity- Increasing the use of GCF Certification in its current core markets in Asia Pacific, China, Europe and North America,
oneM2M
oneM2M
oneM2M's architecture and standards for M2M communications are designed to be applied in many different industries, and take account of input and requirements from any sector.The purpose and goal of oneM2M is to develop technical specifications which address the need for a common M2M Service Layer that can be readily embedded within various hardware and software, and relied upon to connect the myriad of devices in the field with M2M application servers worldwide.
