Smart cities need smart networks

Smart cities need smart networks
With some things you can get away with the one size fits all mentality, but not when it comes to smart cities. Geographic, cultural, financial, and technical considerations that vary from city to city dictate how technologies can be applied to the smart city concept. Ultimately, however, the end goal is always the same: to use connectivity, the cloud, and data analytics – in other words, the Internet of Things (IoT) – to enhance the lives of a city’s residents.

How to simplify and secure virtualised network operations

How to simplify and secure virtualised network operations
Largely based on hardware and operating cost savings, the business case for network virtualisation also depends on the expectations of greater flexibility and productivity. But how can operators of critical infrastructure be certain that their newly virtualised networks will deliver these benefits? A big factor in determining the overall cost savings of a virtualisation project is network operations.

Secure IoT solutions for connected medical devices

Secure IoT solutions for connected medical devices
Enabled by smart devices equipped with cloud‑connected wearable sensors, AI‑powered data analytics, and smart devices, connected healthcare has the potential to increase patient autonomy, assist doctors in delivering better care, and reduce the pressure on the healthcare system. But for connected healthcare to live up to its potential, healthcare cybersecurity has first to be seen as a key public health concern requiring utmost attention. In response, government agencies and regulatory authorities are increasingly stepping up cybersecurity requirements on medical devices.

Delivering the promise of the software-defined car

Delivering the promise of the software-defined car
As we continue towards a more connected and autonomous future, designing a car is increasingly about creating quality experiences; and software is at the centre of enabling that reality. Driven by intelligent software, these experiences must make going from point A to point B safe, secure, efficient, entertaining and convenient, and ultimately, autonomously. The current acceleration of new technologies is leading to unprecedented changes for the automotive industry.

Network virtualisation goes well beyond telecommunications

Network virtualisation goes well beyond telecommunications
The line between what is considered technology for telecommunications vs industrial control and other operations technology applications is becoming blurry. Software is being used in more instances across more industries because it provides a level of flexibility and cost savings like we’ve never seen before.

The easy way to implement network virtualisation

The easy way to implement network virtualisation
Once critical infrastructure operators decide to virtualise network functions and applications, getting started can seem daunting even for the most advanced IT teams. If the project overruns the budget or schedule, anticipated cost savings and efficiency gains can dwindle and undermine the original business case for virtualisation.

With stationless rental bicycles IoT has conquered our streets

With stationless rental bicycles IoT has conquered our streets
Dockless shared bikes have become a growing phenomenon in major cities across the planet. Subscribers to their services can use their smartphone to unlock a nearby bike, ride it to their destination, and then just leave it there. Not only are dockless shared bikes affordable and convenient for their users, they’ve also been great business.

Adding security to IoT endpoints shouldn’t be an option

Adding security to IoT endpoints shouldn’t be an option
Secrets have a way of leaking out and invariably people are the cause. In the IoT, it isn’t the things that will be the main cause of cybercrime, but the people exploiting the weak security provided by those things. The list of examples illustrating this very real threat gets longer every day. Guest blog written by Mark Patrick, Mouser Electronics.

VxWorks off to Mars on another NASA/JPL mission with InSight

VxWorks off to Mars on another NASA/JPL mission with InSight
Very recently on the 5th May, NASA’s Mars Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport (InSight) mission  was launched using a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V 401 rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base on a 300-million-mile trip to Mars to study for the first time what lies deep beneath the surface of the Red Planet.
