Prysmian Group is the world leader in the energy and telecom cables and systems industry. With over 130 years experience and a presence in more than 50 countries around the world, and with 20,000 people and 91 plants, the Group is strongly positioned at the high-tech end of the energy and telecom cable sectors. The Group was created through the union of Prysmian and Draka, already leaders in their markets for innovation and technological know-how.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to grow to include more than 50 billion devices by 2020 – and Broadcom’s out-of-the-box connectivity platforms are providing developers with the tools to kick-start their life-changing devices. As a leader in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Bluetooth Smart, Broadcom ensures that standards-based connectivity technologies play nicely together. With all of that embedded hardware engineering already complete, Broadcom’s hardware and software development kits help to quickly turn creative IoT ideas quickly into prototypes and ready-for-market devices for both large and small companies. Interoperability is critical to the proliferation of IoT, which is why the WICED platform is bringing secure Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) wireless connectivity to nearly every emerging product category in the IoT ecosystem, including home appliances, health and fitness monitors, automation and asset tracking systems, smart meters and an array of consumer electronics devices.
From monitoring the energy efficiency of our homes to finding more productive ways to feed the global population, harnessing these connected “things” and turning massive amounts of raw data into actionable insights will have a transformative impact on society. However, both technical and business challenges are slowing IoT adoption. Decision makers within companies are trying to gain a better grasp of expected ROI, cost, and scalability, while IT managers struggle with integration, interoperability, management, and the need to tailor to specific verticals. Intel is addressing these challenges by offering open and scalable products, fostering a thriving ecosystem, and showing what is possible with pilots and use cases that demonstrate the potential value and ease of deployment. Intel offers a comprehensive portfolio of end-to-end hardware and software with built-in security. To make IoT simpler to deploy and scale across applications quickly, Intel offer the Intel IoT Platform, a design blueprint that details how to securely connect and manage a fleet of “things” from small sensors to huge server farms that make up the cloud, while using various analytics tools and technologies along the way.
In the near future, billions of pieces of equipment will be connected to one another and massive amounts of data will pouring in. Advanced algorithms, high-powered computing, better connectivity and cloud storage all facilitate the emergence of smart systems. Knowing how to leverage the respective opportunities, however, requires a unique set of skills. Siemens has the engineering, domain and digital know-how to generate performance improvements across the entire value chain, from design to production and operations to maintenance. Digital simulation technology accelerates the plant design, the installation and commissioning as well as the entire product design and production planning process. Multiple components in systems and plants can be intelligently networked to communicate with each other and exchange real-time data. Machine learning makes complex systems more efficient without human intervention. The intelligent analysis of operational data helps identify patterns and predict potential downtimes. Minimum downtimes boost reliability thanks to lifecycle services.
The Internet of Everything is based on the idea that devices, objects and systems can be connected in simple, transparent ways to enable seamless sharing of information and coordinated and intelligent operations across all of them. As no single company can accomplish the level of interoperability required to support the Internet of Everything and address everyday, real-life scenarios, a united, pan-industry effort is needed to deliver new experiences to consumers and businesses. Panasonic pledges to provide companies with royalty-free access to some of its Internet of Things (IoT) software and patents as way to speed up the development of new IoT software and services. The company is adopting the model of the open-source software movement by sharing its software and product experience in cloud computing technologies.
The traditional Internet is oriented towards P2P connection, whereas the Internet of Things (IoT) is oriented towards connection of inanimate objects. As such, IoT covers a larger range of connections and involves more semantics. Internet and telecom networks are focused on information transfer, while IoT is focused on information services. By combining sensor networks, the Internet, telecom networks, and cloud computing platforms, the Internet of Things can sense, recognize, affect, and control the physical world. The physical world can be unified with the virtual world and human perception. This lecture discusses Internet of Things technology from three perspectives: Ubiquitous information sensing, ubiquitous network convergence, and intelligent information services. ZTE will introduce the technical characteristics of IoT and sensor networks, the development background of sensor networks, and key technologies of sensor networks. ZTE's IoT platform is able to connect and manage machines, providing a dedicated network to connect devices and systems.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects accessed through the Internet—essentially a "Connected Everything Platform." These objects contain embedded technology to interact with internal states or the external environment. When objects can sense and communicate, it changes how and where decisions are made, and who makes them. IoT is connecting new places—such as manufacturing floors, energy grids, healthcare facilities, and transportation systems—to the Internet. When an object can represent itself digitally, it can be controlled from anywhere. This connectivity means more data, gathered from more places, with more ways to: increase efficiency, innovate in product development, increase asset utilization, enhance the customer experience, streamline the supply chain, and improve safety and security. Hitachi Consulting helps apply IoT solutions to drive business value, ultimately allowing companies to be IoT innovators and become an "Enterprise of Things." Companies can learn more about Hitachi Consulting's products, solutions and expertise and how they leverage the diverse product portfolio of Hitachi to help enterprises quickly get value out of IoT capabilities.
