IoT Evolution World Week in Review: Inmarsat, Mouser, Telit

By Ken Briodagh July 08, 2017

Welcome to the IoT Evolution Week in Review, my friends. This week, we’ve been talking about Smart City deals, IoT development deals, the Big Deal IoT Evolution Expo and more. Let’s get into it, shall we?

In our lead story, I wrote about a new Internet of Things (IoT) research study from Inmarsat, a major provider of global mobile satellite communications, in which the company reportedly has found that agritech businesses are helping many food producers to meet increasingly stringent import requirements by monitoring production, food hygiene, and sustainability through the use of IoT technology. This will accelerate the globalization of food production by enabling developing country food producers to export to developed economies, where these regulations originate from.

We are continuing our special series of Q&A interviews with the speaking faculty at the IoT Evolution Expo, coming up in Las Vegas July 17 to 20. This week, we spoke to James Turino, Phil Attfield, and Hiep Pham.

In a great guest post this week, our Special Correspondent Cynthia Artin gave us a look at the Future of IoT and how the industry will move into true real-time and data harnessing thanks to fine tuning of every element in the architecture, from the devices at the edge to gateways and networks, clouds and applications, all which must be programmed and secured, and made economically feasible, relative to the value "real time" delivers.

And now, the news: Cyient has announced that it has signed a business alliance agreement with Kii Corporation to invest in Smart City deployments.

Mouser Electronics is teaming up with celebrity engineer and former Mythbuster Grant Imahara for the Shaping Smarter Cities project, the newest series in the successful Empowering Innovation Together program.

Observables Inc. has created a connected service platform that connects, manages, monitors and controls new and legacy infrastructure devices on the network. These devices include alarm systems, computer networks, access control, smart home, and phone and video surveillance into a singular cloud and mobile dashboard for dealers, OEMs, makers, and end-users alike.

Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), and OT-Morpho, a digital security & identification technology developer, will join forces and partner up to solve the challenges facing the mass adoption of IoT via today’s traditional deployment methodology.

Over the last few years, I have seen some major trends forming across nearly every vertical in the consumer and industrial spaces, and these trends looked like they were pointing toward a future where the IoT would indeed be improving the lives and living conditions of people all over the world, and so I decided to begin writing a book in order to look for patterns in those trends. That book, published recently, is called “IoT Time: Evolving Trends in the Internet of Things.” In a new weekly series, we’ll be previewing chapters for you to read in the hopes that you’ll like enough to read the whole thing.

On the IoT Time Podcast, I sat down with Christian Legare, Chairman, IPSO Alliance to talk about interoperability standards for IoT, defining network identity and the IoT Evolution Expo.

There’s plenty more to read, listen to and watch, so visit us on IoT Evolution World for all the IoT news, my friends. Now is the time to put into your calendar the next IoT Evolution Expo, to be held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Also, please get in touch with us when you have stories. As always, if you have questions, comments, complaints or compliments, please send them to me, editorial director Ken Briodagh at kbriodagh@tmcnet.com or on Twitter @KenBriodagh.
