The Internet of Things is an infrastructure of interconnected objects. The connection? Itron. Itron’s innovative technologies securely connect millions of devices and revolutionize device monitoring, edge analytics and command and control capabilities delivering real-time solutions and human interaction to societal issues.
Nine billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices today, and the number is growing. Organizations must consider how to manage the complexities of connecting to a seemingly unlimited number of devices and how to effectively integrate IoT data with data from other sources, such as internal data stores. Business value comes to those who improve their data capabilities—integration, automation and analysis—not to those who simply connect the most devices to the network. Watson IoT is a set of capabilities that learn from, and infuse intelligence into, the physical world. The IoT generated data, and it is extremely varied, noisy, time-sensitive and often confidential. Complexity grows as billions of devices interact in a moving world. This presents a growing challenge that will test the limits of programmable computing. Cognitive IoT is our opportunity to fully exploit this resource. Cognitive IoT is not explicitly programmed. It learns from experiences with the environment and interactions with people. It brings true Machine Learning to systems and processes so they can understand your goals, then integrate and analyze the relevant data to help you achieve them.
The recent Internet of Things (IoT) momentum has been enabled through a broad adherence to open standards (such as Ethernet) and by technology breakthroughs in the area of Data Aggregation middleware. Schneider Electric delivers open, connected solutions at each IoT-driven intelligent ecosystem layer: the connected, decentralised device layer (sensors, drives, meters, PLCs, controls, switchgear), the platform layer (cloud services, middleware, physical infrastructure architectures), and the On-Premise central control layer (operational intelligence, remote monitoring, predictive analysis, simulation, cloud analytics). Schneider Electric tools help data centre, plant, and smart grid operators to become more efficient by sorting through mountains of data (eliminating false alarms or nuisance alarms) and by generating dashboards that consolidate the information coming in from all parts of the extended network. Instead of gridlock, a smooth flow of information is created which allows for greater operational intelligence and higher quality decisions. IoT is broadening the scope of where both power protection and security are needed, as entire chains of communication can be disrupted by the breakdown of a single device. Schneider Electric leverages the power of IoT and big data to maximize safety and reliability through high-precision automation and control, training and simulation, the generation of ‘what if’ scenarios, robust remote management, Predictive Maintenance, managed services, and advanced analytics. Power protection and cyber security considerations are imbedded into our product designs in order to strengthen overall network reliability.
The Internet of Things (IoT) does not need to be complicated. It doesn’t have to be about billions or trillions of devices. The Internet of Things is here today, and it’s a practical and applicable technology trend that can generate return on investment (ROI) and drive efficiencies and insights for organizations that know how to use it. The advancements in connectivity, processing power, form factors, operating systems, and applications, among other technology breakthroughs, are key elements to unlocking value from IoT. With the Microsoft Azure Internet of Things Suite, companies can monitor assets to improve efficiencies, drive operational performance to enable innovation, and use advance data analytics to transform the business with new business models and revenue streams. Small changes can have a big impact to companies' bottom line. When a company take advantage of the Microsoft Cloud Platform, they can use the Azure IoT Suit to help them move faster, do more, save money, and capture the benefits of the Internet of Things for their business.
From utilities to cities to industrial parks and campuses―our solutions empower you to build interconnected systems with intelligence at every point. So you can be more responsive. Smarter. And make the most efficient, cost-effective decisions.
The rise of machine-to-machine (M2M) communication will bring an unprecedented need for network infrastructure, and foster the advent of a new generation of devices, pioneered by the Nabaztag, which have connectivity as their raison d’être. As more and more objects from daily life are being embedded with computing capabilities, personal computers as we know them will become a tool of the past. The Internet of Things (IoT) will be disruptive by nature and businesses and organizations have little choice but to adopt it. Now is the time for CEOs, CIOs and decision makers to understand the potential of the IoT and reap the associated benefits in terms of economic growth and individual well-being, thus making IoT an IoT for People. Atos is committed to dedicating more effort to the IoT and take ubiquitous computing to the masses.
