What a week it has been for the connected world! As we grow closer to the end of 2015, there are plenty of movers and shakers in the IoT space, and for good reason – the excitement around the industry is palpable. In fact, it’s hard to keep a pulse on all the activity as there seems to be innovations occurring daily. Additionally, the IoT provider ecosystem itself continues to grow rapidly as the influx of companies – from device manufacturers

IIoT Bold Prediction Series Part 4: New Networking Protocol Changes IoT Connectivity

Before we move on to the next prediction in our IIoT Predictions series, let’s take a quick look back at the first three: A major security breach of an industrial SCADA system will bring new focus to IoT security. The government will become heavily involved in the regulation of IoT and IIoT devices. Predictive analytics will alter fundamental IT/OT practices. Part of the difficulty in procuring “predictions” for something like the Internet of Things is

IIoT Bold Prediction Series Part 3: Predictive Analytics Alters Fundamental IT/OT Practices

So far, our series of IIoT Bold Predictions for 2016 has focused on the concepts of IIoT security and government’s regulatory role in the development of IoT and IIoT devices. Today, we’re changing gears a bit, with a prediction from Scott Allen, FreeWave’s CMO, which focuses on the implementation of IIoT technology into big data practices to create real-time, data-driven intelligence. Prediction #3: Predictive Analytics Alters Fundamental IT/OT Practices Predictive analytics will change the nature of industrial communication systems and

IIoT Bold Prediction Series Part 2: Government Regulations Coming

Yesterday, we kicked the 2016 IIoT Bold Prediction Series off with a bang! As a nice follow-up, and second iteration of the series, Tim Mester, Principal Engineer of Advanced Technology at FreeWave, presents his Industrial IoT bold prediction: Prediction #2: Government Regulations Coming for IoT and IIoT Devices Due to a major security breach or reliability failure in connected devices or systems used in the Industrial IoT space, governments will be compelled to create and enforce new regulations on all

Announcing the 2016 IIoT Bold Prediction Series!

The year 2015 is soon coming to an end as the year 2016 looks to be ushering in exciting new ways in which the Internet of Things (IoT) is changing our way of life. It’s easy to see these transformations taking shape on the consumer side (home automation, smart appliances, connected cars, personal computers, smart devices, etc.), but what will 2016 hold for the Industrial IoT (IIoT) space? (Note: Go here for a quick rundown on the

2018 Analyst IIoT Predictions

Each year we like to go inside FreeWave and ask our team what the Industrial IoT forecast looks like for the upcoming year. Throughout 2017 we were hard at work developing some of our industry-leading Edge intelligence and industrial Wi-Fi products, so this year, instead of looking inward, we decided to take a peek around the world at 2018 IIoT predictions from some of the leading experts. Network World Based off a Forrester report, three

2017 Analyst Predictions – Industrial IoT

Predictions can be enlightening as we round out the end of the year, and industry analysts covering the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) have begun forecasting what to expect in 2017. In the ever changing digital business landscape, companies need to keep a pulse on the technology and regulatory environments to have direction on where to focus their efforts. Over the past few years, IIoT has taken on the shared title of industry 4.0, as new ways of connecting businesses and

IIoT Apps are Brewing

General Electric recently published a piece with three important reasons software developers should focus on the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). It cited the fact that IIoT apps can solve real-life problems in our cities, provide the opportunity for more than 18.5 million developers to advance digital infrastructure, and justify the big investments in IoT. FreeWave on App Development In our 2017 prediction series, we also highlighted the emerging opportunity for IIoT app development.  We

Who’s Your Betamax of IoT Standards?

Image Courtesy of Flickr Creative Commons In the world of IoT/IIoT an explosion of standards has fallen upon us. While we all can agree that standards are what binds our current communication infrastructures together, it does take time for the victorious standard to rise to the top of adoption. Some of us remember the battle that arose in the video tape arena between VHS and Betamax (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Videotape_format_war). While Betamax’s claim to fame was the superior picture, VHS
