    Nest Labs Inc. has recently released its Thread software as a free, open source stack available to any developer via GitHub. While the Thread standard has been open since the 1.0 version was released in July 2015, this is the first time a Thread stack has been made available as open source software. Having an open source alternative is a major milestone for any networking protocol, but this is even more significant for Thread because of its provenance – it was developed by Nest, the driving force behind Thread, along with contributions from a number of companies with deep experience in wireless networking.

    In late April 2016 Samsung Electronics launched its “ARTIK Cloud” for IoT devices. Unlike Samsung’s previously announced SmartThings Open Cloud, which is targeted at smart home applications, the ARTIK Cloud is meant to be application-agnostic across the IoT landscape. The ARTIK Cloud complements Samsung’s previously announced family of ARTIK modules in an attempt to create an ARTIK “ecosystem” for IoT application developers.

    Network slicing – as a utilization of NFV, SDN, and distributed data centers – enables a single physical network to be used for many different use cases and applications; it is, essentially, a technique to allocate separated logical “slices” for varied purposes. Each slice is a virtual network using a subset of resources of the physical network. These slices are deployable in automated and flexible ways via software. Using SDN and NFV technologies, a separate slice can be set up for each of a wide range of IoT applications. Importantly, network slicing gifts mobile operators with flexibility, speed, and fine-grained network optimization.
