M2M, IoT & Connectivity

More from:

The world is going digital, driven by near-ubiquitous connectivity, continually decreasing costs in processing and sensor solutions, and the internet’s ability to facilitate communication among electronic devices. In addition, we’re all trying to navigate IoT—a technological evolution based on how connected devices can enhance communication, automate complex industrial processes, make cities and homes smarter, and provide a wealth of information for processing into useful actions aimed at making our lives easier.

Be equipped to take advantage of the IoT’s many exciting opportunities with our thorough analysis and data on wired and wireless connectivity technologies. Coverage encompasses the role of high-speed and low-power connectivity, the impact on cellular M2M markets and the ecosystems, software and services that need to be in place to realize the IoT’s full potential.

  • Liz Cruz | December 13, 2018
    IT decision makers expect an average of 33 percent growth in total data center capacity (as measured in IT racks), from 2018 to 2019. More than half (58 percent) of IT racks are expected to be placed in colocation data centers in 2019, up from 49 percent in 2018.

    On 15 October 2018, Arm and Intel announced that Arm would adopt Intel’s Secure Device Onboarding (SDO) technology as part of Arm’s Pelion IoT platform. This collaboration should facilitate IoT market growth by reducing complexity and risk in the device supply chain. Both Arm and Intel benefit from partnering, though Intel gains a more important strategic win by shoring up the relevance of the Intel x86 chip architecture for IoT applications in the face of the increasing traction of Arm’s Cortex-M and Cortex-A architectures in the IoT market.

    Unfortunately, no vertical market has remained immune from the harmful aftermath of a successful cyber attack or data breach. The situation is only exacerbated with regards to the Internet of Things (IoT), as the sheer volume of these devices continues to grow with each passing year. The IoT device explosion has seen a proportionate growth of the cyber threat landscape due to the new attack vectors that many insecure IoT devices can introduce into the ecosystem. Furthermore, the industrial markets that comprise our critical infrastructure have routinely found themselves in the crosshairs of potential cyber-criminals and data thieves.
