Six challenges for NB-IoT deployment - IoTUK

But smart technology alone is no guarantee to success. So in this article, Harpley will describe what he thinks are the major challenges that cellular network operators will face as they seek to build profitable Narrowband-IoT (NB-IoT) based businesses in UK and Europe. On one level, the cellular industry can afford to be bullish about commercial prospects for their planned NB-IoT rollouts. After all, unlike LoRa and Sigfox operators, they don’t have to build their networks from scratch.

But industry leaders also recognise that they have a lot of catching up to do. Here are the six major challenges which the industry will face: 1. November 2015 saw the launch of the NB-IoT Forum.

IBM thinks a technology best known from the world of bitcoin could lock down at least one use of IoT. The company is using blockchain technology to ensure that everything’s in order with IoT transactions. Just as a public blockchain makes bitcoin transactions traceable and verifiable, the private, cloud-based system that IBM will operate for enterprises will verify non-monetary interactions between some devices. Blockchain-based Internet of Things project does drone deliveries using Ethereum. Chronicled, a San Francisco-based technology company that is currently developing a blockchain-hosted registry and protocol for the Internet of Things (IoT), has unveiled a prototype drone delivery system using Ethereum.

Blockchain-based Internet of Things project does drone deliveries using Ethereum

A video shows a drone equipped with a secure blockchain-registered BLE identity chip which is able to self-authenticate with a computer-controlled window and gain access to a private residence in order to deliver a package. The computer operating the door is able to test the identity of the drone by asking the drone to cryptographically sign a random number, and then comparing this to the blockchain hosted public key that was registered at the time the drone went into service along with metadata describing the make, model, and specifications of the drone.

In the prototype, the drone was registered to the blockchain by Wallmeds - a pharmacy that has been whitelisted by the owner of the home – and the door is able to open automatically. Can Blockchain Help Secure the Internet of Things? - RTInsights. Some cyberattacks are simply not possible using blockchain, but data volume and storage are challenges for the technology.

Can Blockchain Help Secure the Internet of Things? - RTInsights

The internet had its own “October surprise” when DVR and IP cameras were infected with malware and created a massive outage that took down Twitter, Reddit, The New York Times, PayPal and other major websites. The malware targeted Internet of Things (IoT) devices such as routers, digital video recorders, and webcams/security cameras. Experts fear this may only be the beginning, and with millions of devices across the IoT, the internet remains vulnerable. The October IoT incident was only the latest security breach against this soft underbelly of the internet. Dennis ada, VP and global client partner at Infosys, cautions that the vulnerability of IoT is increasingly be exploited.

IoT et Blockchain : couple gagnant ? (Partie 1)

Investiguons maintenant les adhérences potentielles entre la Blockchain et les IoT. S’il ne fait aucun doute des perspectives de l’IoT du fait des mouvements déjà anciens de course à la miniaturisation et à l’autonomisation des systèmes, les applications futures de la blockchain sont plus floues. La faute principalement aux champs d’application très larges de cette technologie et à sa jeunesse. La faute également à l’absence de modèles économiques évident avec la blockchain. D’ailleurs le Gartner envisage que la blockchain ne soit pas sous sa forme actuelle l’une des technologies cibles de «l’économie programmable» «The speed of technological change may outpace changes in societal and business operating frameworks, creating discontinuity among components of the programmable economy. 1. 2.

Watson IoT - Private Blockchain. Blockchain Internet of Things (IOT) Explained. Blockchain technology is the missing link to settle scalability, privacy, and reliability concerns in the Internet-of-Things.

Blockchain Internet of Things (IOT) Explained

According to Cisco, 50 billion devices are due to come online by 2020. With so many connected devices all sending, receiving and processing instructions to turn on, dial down and move up, the sheer amount of data due to come on-stream could come with unprecented costs. Other issues include how exactly we can track and manage billions of connected devices, storing the metadata that these devices produce, and do it all reliably and securely. Before mainstream Internet-of-Things consumer adoption can really take hold, these issues will need to be resolved.

Blockchain technologies could perhaps be the silver bullet needed by the IoT industry. IoT, Blockchain et Devops, Deloitte décline le hype IT pour les DSI. Les huit Tech Trends relevées par Deloitte ne réservent guère de surprises sur le volet de la transformation numérique des entreprises.

Mais, entre tendances technologiques profondes pour le changement, leur potentiel esquissé et le coup de projecteur dans les médias, la frontière s’estompe parfois. Les Tech Trends, distinguées par le cabinet de conseil et d’audit, ont vocation à avoir « un impact sur les organisations dans les 18 à 24 mois à venir aux Etats-Unis ». Pour la quatrième édition de cet exercice de prospective à moyen terme, quelques innovations se distinguent comme la blockchain, la réalité virtuelle et les objets connectés. « Elles incarnent les principaux leviers de l’innovation au sein des entreprises : digital, analytics, cloud, sans oublier la transformation du rôle de l’IT », estime Sébastien Ropartz, Associé en charge de Deloitte Digital.

Blockchain Startup Chronicled Launches Ethereum IoT Registry. In an effort to build a standard for the emerging Internet of Things (IoT), Chronicled is open sourcing a tool for registering connected devices on the ethereum blockchain. Described as a "cross between Wikipedia and Carfax" for consumer goods, the platform will register the identities of near-field communication (NFC) and bluetooth low energy (BLE) chips, components of IoT that today allow smartphones to “talk” with other devices. While the IoT has been hailed as an inevitability, technology experts ague that a fragmentation of standards have held back its adoption. Today, industry companies are each developing their own way for devices to communicate, but Chronicled's founders want to use the ethereum blockchain to make private IoT database registries interoperable. Chronicled CEO Ryan Orr told CoinDesk: Blockchain IoT Projects and Applications. First, let’s review the basics of how Bitcoin, and blockchains generally, work.

Blockchain Basics If you haven't been living under a rock, you are probably aware of Bitcoin as a popular (and controversial) cryptocurrency -- a form of money that can be transferred securely and anonymously across a widely distributed peer-to-peer network. The Bitcoin blockchain is essentially a ledger of all legitimate transactions that have occurred on the network so far, which is maintained by the collaborative efforts of all the nodes in the network.

The process is automatic, based on consensus, and fully auditable. That creates a “trustless” system where nobody has to put their faith in anyone else, because the Bitcoin network itself is guaranteed to keep a fair and accurate record of which bitcoins belong to whom (solving what is known as the Byzantine Generals Problem). The Bitcoin blockchain is built up over time, as new transactions are added to the ledger. IBM's IoT blockchain service gets ready to set sail. Forbes India Magazine - Securing the Internet of Things. Image: Shutterstock 310 mln is the number of IoT devices that will be used in food services by 2020, according to The internet of things (IoT) has become one of the biggest areas of concern for cyber security experts. It was among the most discussed subjects at an annual conference in Singapore in May arranged by Fortinet, a software company that provides enterprise-level next generation firewalls and arrays of network security products.

How to Secure the Internet of Things (IoT) with Blockchain. IoT is creating new opportunities and providing a competitive advantage for businesses in current and new markets. It touches everything—not just the data, but how, when, where and why you collect it. The technologies that have created the Internet of Things aren’t changing the internet only, but rather change the things connected to the internet—the devices and gateways on the edge of the network that are now able to request a service or start an action without human intervention at many levels. Because the generation and analysis of data is so essential to the IoT, consideration must be given to protecting data throughout its life cycle. Managing information at all levels is complex because data will flow across many administrative boundaries with different policies and intents. IoT on the Blockchain. Authors: Gurvinder Ahluwalia (IBM) Blockchain and the IoT: So Many Uses, So Little Trust - RTInsights. Blockchain has numerous uses and applications in the IoT, but pressing issues remain with security and trust, as well as scalability.

As blockchain unfolds, the convergence with the Internet of Things (IoT) increasingly becomes a compelling value proposition for organizations across many industries.Blockchain, a global, highly distributed ledger or database, provides an online facility for tracking and recording transactions between systems or between people. We recently caught up with Dinesh Venugopal, head of strategic and digital customers of Mphasis.

The company, which specializes in IT services, has been exploring blockchain uses and applications in the IoT. “Pilots are underway across various industries and we keep hearing new use cases every day,” he observes. “IoT can instill intelligence into existing or new infrastructure that can communicate, report and process certain operations by themselves without human intervention.” Connecting IoT with Blockchain II - IoTUK. In the second part of a two-part blog series, Sam Davies, Lead Technologist for Creative Programmes at Digital Catapult, blogs about how he created an IoT blockchain using two Raspberry Pis and an AWS instance. Since our previous blog on this topic we have now built our IoT blockchain prototype.

Connecting IoT with blockchain - IoTUK. In the first part of a two-part blog series, Sam Davies, Lead Technologist for Creative Programmes at Digital Catapult, discusses applications for connecting IoT with the blockchain using Raspberry Pi 2 and the latest Raspberry Pi 3. The ‘smart contracts’ work described in our previous Blockchain blog post is progressing nicely and we are about to begin user testing with 20 game development teams in the next few weeks. Blockchain of Things. CatenisDataSheet. Chain of Things. Decentralizing IoT networks through blockchain. Imagine a washer that autonomously contacts suppliers and places orders when it’s low on detergent, performs self-service and maintenance, downloads new washing programs from outside sources, schedules its cycles to take advantage of electricity prices and negotiates with peer devices to optimize its environment; a connected car, smart enough to find and choose the best deal for parts and services; a manufacturing plant where the machinery knows when to order repairs for some of its parts without the need of human intervention.

All these scenarios — and many more — will be realized thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT). Already, many of the industries that historically didn’t fit well with computers have been transformed by the billions of IoT devices connected to the internet; other industries will follow suit as billions more enter the fray. The problem with the centralized model There’s no single platform that connects all devices. Blockchain Startup Chronicled Launches Ethereum IoT Registry. Connecting IoT with Blockchain II - IoTUK.
