ICYMI through November 12, 2018

Short week last week for many of us lucky enough not to have to labor on Labor Day as the summer gives way to the mad dash event-filled sprint to Thanksgiving. School is in full swing! Football started! Serious movies appear at the multiplex! And the IoT business just keeps getting busier with news, including some we missed. Here’s some of the interesting tidbits that zoomed by.

Politics everywhere

Hard to escape politics no matter where you go lately, and the IoT biz can’t escape it either. On the RealClearPolitics site, political operative Ned Ryun says we should “Stop China’s Access to Internet of Things Data.” Not just the devices for security purposes, but to the flood of data each one spits out.

5G’s wireless speeds and low latency will power a new generation of IoT devices and solutions, but first we need to build out the 5G network. The Wall Street Journal (paywall) talks about the race between the U.S. and China to Control World’s Fastest Wireless Internet.

Do IoT security dangers need the government to slow down the mad rush to IoT? Security expert Bruce Schneier thinks so.

The Massachusetts State Auditor wants to better manage the risks of IoT projects like electronic toll collecting, monitoring devices, roadway surveillance cameras, and more.

Somehow, the National Review blames IoT and Silicon Valley for the fact that everyone hates millennials. ???? Do we have to blame IoT? Can’t we just hate them because they’re younger than us?

Business everywhere

One Filipino company making air conditioners and refrigeration units can now complete 40 percent more IoT projects after moving to the AWS cloud.

In the medical vertical, HealthIT Analytics says IoT and AI willl “Play Key Role in Future Smart Hospitals.” Maybe IoT can drop the price of those $200 aspirins we read about now and then in medical cost articles.

If you’re in the building trades you might like the research Georgia Tech’s Center for the Development and Application of Internet of Things Technologies has prepared about standards for smart buildings and cities.

If you’re in the transportation business you may already know that many of the intermodal trailers on trains and behind trucks track location, load status, and if the door has been opened, all via IoT.

If you’re in the network management business, you might keep an eye on Rohde & Schwarz and what they claim is the “First 5G NR Network Measurement Solution.”
