Data is a critical component of any operational entity. With the advent of newer technologies, such data is growing at an exponential rate. As a result, when most of this data is distributed across multiple platforms, with manual or non-existent workflows and siloed in systems that don’t “talk” to each other, the data can quickly become stale and disjointed.
For IoT deployments, going to the edge may be the best choice when it comes to helping businesses deploy IoT technology across their network infrastructures. Panduit’s white paper, “Edge Computing: Behind the Scenes of IoT,” explains the difference between the cloud and edge computing and three ways the edge can help IoT technology deployments. It also discusses the following key areas for consideration when deploying edge computing: real-time requirements, environmental conditions, space limitations, and security.
Through the rapid growth of Internet of Things (IoT) deployments, organisations are capturing more data than ever before. But there are still a number of questions around the use of data that need clarity. What is the value in the data? How can it be made available and used effectively to benefit all stakeholders – councils, citizens and businesses? How can it be monetised, if at all?
How long before your building “knows” more about you than you do yourself? As ever-more processing is crammed into smaller, lighter and cheaper devices, it was only a matter of time before people would be able to wear them as they go about their everyday lives. It hasn’t taken long for people to find ways in which wearables could be used to improve the inter-relationship between buildings on the one hand, and the people who live or work in them, or visit them.
The exponential growth of data transfer is pushing traditional campus networks to the limit. Compounding the problem is the surge in demand for high-resolution video streaming and intelligent applications — such as facial recognition systems — which add to the already high volume of video traffic from conferences, streaming, and VR devices. Finally, IoT applications, ranging from service robots and intelligent access controls to voice devices and sensors, are regularly deployed on campuses which increases the complexity of the network structure, creating an even greater burden on copper wire networks.
There is a common and recurring challenge amongst commercial real estate developers. To ensure their project does not result in delivering an obsolete building upon substantial completion. This is an understandably stressful predicament for development teams who are having to define functional and experiential uses cases two, three, sometimes five years in advance of completion with expectations that the new building meet both market demand as well as operational requirements.
In 1962, The Jetsons cartoon came on the scene and gave us an idyllic world enabled by technology. Things like video chat, holograms, jet packs, 3D printed food, and smartwatches were science fiction at the time. These things are all reality today. While the vision for a truly “smart city” might seem like science fiction to some, it’s fast becoming reality. Smart Cities are fully connected, sustainable, energy efficient, and socially friendly communities that use their infrastructure to intelligently improve the quality of life of those who live and visit there.
Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) will open up new dimensions in Ethernet/IP data transmission, they say. Experts agree: SPE is becoming an application-independent, inexpensive key technology in the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
IoT Infrastructure Market Trending High Globally to 2028 with Topmost Key Vendors – AGT International, Amdocs, Bayshore Networks, Bosch Software innovations: Bosch IoT Suite, Contiki, GE Software, …

Industrial environments can be extremely harsh settings when it comes to cabling infrastructure. Operators need to meet the high-speed transmission needs of the latest industrial devices without losing any connectivity through interference from temperature, moisture, dust, and increasing distances between endpoints.
Most chemical plants, oil and gas rigs, and power facilities have installed fiber optic cabling to meet those demands, but many of those cabling choices have now become antiquated and can no longer provide the speed and bandwidth requirements placed upon them by the industrial Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled devices.
