ICYMI through November 12, 2018

Baseball fans, of at least two teams, are happy now that the World Series is set. Congrats to the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Tampa Bay Rays (although for 2020, we really need the "Devil" Rays name back). Rather than overload on air miles, the teams will play in Arlington, Texas, in the new field built for the Texas Rangers. You know, split the difference. And we'll split the difference with a batch of IoT newsbits found lurking on our network and quarantined below.

Microsoft's Channel 9 has a new video entitled, "Developing the Last Mile of IIoT and Predictive Operations Solutions with TwinThread," ready for your perusal.

Kaspersky Research says half of industrial organizations think IoT will transform industrial control systems (ICS) security. 20% are already prioritizing IoT-related incidents.

English and German integrators should keep an eye on the new partnership between Trilliant and 1NCE to deliver low-cost cellular connectivity for last-mile connections to low data IIoT and smart meter devices.

Looking for faster data handling in edge devices? Maybe the new deal between Innodisk and ASUS to equip ASUS edge devices PE200U and PE200E with out-of-band managed Innodisk InnoAGE SSD will help.

Readers in the Philippines will soon have another monitoring connection option for electric devices: LoRaWAN. Semtech and Packetworx, a leading IoT solution provider in the Philippines, did a partnership deal. The packetSENSE Current Clamp electricity monitoring solution and remote reboot option will run over LoRaWAN.

Senet announced a full suite of Radio Access Network (RAN) planning and management tools. Helps deploy commercial LoRaWAN networks.

It may take some thinking to apply to your customers, but this case study on MachineMetrics and IoT ends up saving $5,000 per machine thanks to IoT. Reduces waste, too.

Digi-Key will be the exclusive global distributor of the ready-to-use IoT data management software for the BeagleBone platform, Machinechat JEDI One for BeagleBone.

Supply chains have to be smarter than ever thanks to the lockdown joys of 2020. Here's a story on how the Internet of Robotic Things (IoRT) is helping progress move forward.

Stop me if you've heard this before: The IoT Cybersecurity Improvement Act, written by Congress to get NIST more involved in IoT security with vendors, is making progress. The House passed the Senate bill, which may or may not mean things are underway.

Anyone have enough debugging tools? Here's another one that can monitor Arduino IoT projects and provide network info and more.
