Networked Globe Briefing – April 4 2014

Following yesterday’s Peak Data report from Australia’s CSIRO research agency, Networked Globe takes a closer look at what a saturated mobile spectrum means to the IoT and M2M industries.

In other news, Intel and cloud provider Axeda have teamed up to provide enhanced services for the logistics industries.

What does Peak Data mean to the IoT?

Yesterday’s Networked Globe briefing reported  the Australian CSIRO research agency’s claim we’re approaching Peak Data as wireless networks become swamped. Today we look closer at those claims and what the telco industry is doing to ease crowded bandwidth.

Axeda and Intel team up

Cloud service compnay Axeda has announced a technology alliance with Intel to evolve IoT solutions for the industrial, energy & transportation industries. The companies have also developed an Axeda Go developer kit for connecting an Intel Galileo development board to the Axeda Machine Cloud.

“The Internet of Things is enabling and accelerating new services and capabilities, and Intel’s vision to push into lower power regimes, combined with high temp capabilities is a game-changer for industrial, energy and transportation,” said Todd DeSisto, Axeda President and CEO. “By enabling Intel processor and communication technology to seamlessly work with the Axeda Machine Cloud, we are offering entirely new building blocks for IoT delivery.”

“The impact of the IoT in transportation, energy and industry is undeniable, but its promise will only be realized when industry leaders enable customers to turn the vision into reality,” said Kumar Balasubramanian, general manager, IoT Solutions Group, Intel. “Our work with Axeda will enable broader adoption and is ideally suited for the industrial, energy and transportation sectors.”
