IoT News: Smart Transportation, Smart Cities and Holograms you Touch

July 2, 2015

Smart transportation is on fire - it will be an almost $200 billion dollar by 2021 - and it is starting from a very small number today. This is massive growth - wow! I don't know about you but I can't wait for the day when my car helps me find an open parking spot - and perhaps even sort spots by cost or proximity depending on weather.

From there - we go to smart cities - which of course makes sense because the cars need to speak with something besides themselves. Finally, Arduino has a new platform for IoT - wearable tech, robotics and a lot more.

Check out the video news details below for a surprise at the end.

Schneider Electric: More Software and the IoT to Reshape Data Center Design

May 27, 2015

There is a macro trend of moving proprietary hardware systems to open systems and moving hardware to software – at this point, this shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who tracked my GENBAND Perspectives 15 blog post or last week’s HP NFV story or even the writing I’ve done on Imagine Communications disrupting the video distribution space with SDN and virtualized solutions.



To learn more, I sat down with Schneider Electric’s Srdan Mutabdzija (above), Global Solution Offer Manager, and Jason Covitz (below), Director of Strategy for IT Business where we talked about IT infrastructure and how it will look in the future.



Jason emphasized the move to commoditized and standardized infrastructure – not just in the spaces mentioned above but oil and gas, mining and manufacturing. Srdan explained the evolution of their products and the market in general is to a more prefabricated, plug-and-play, efficient cooling solutions which lower time to market, reduce risk and allow a more seamless move to public/private clouds.

Exclusive Interview with Aricent's Frank Kern at MWC 2015

April 3, 2015


It’s been a few years since I've covered Aricent (2012, 2009, 2006) but as fate would have it I was fortunate enough to interview Frank Kern, CEO at MWC 2015. This is one of the companies behind many of the products we use and one you likely don’t know a great deal about. It’s owned by KKR and Sequoia and is a pure-play product innovation services company – Kern explained his they don't do IT and BPO like others in the space.

Another differentiator is the company’s core strength is connectivity and there is a great demand for such services at the moment.

Fring Alliance Aims to Become Carrier VoIP Cooperative

April 3, 2015

Fring may be one of the more interesting stories in the telecom space. The company launched one of the first VoIP apps I used on the iPhone – if not the first. They then sold to GENBAND some years later to be the core enabler of a hosted VoIP platform carriers could purchase from GENBAND and resell to their customers. In short, a simple cloud-based white-label way to compete with OTT without massive investment.

Yes, Consumers Will Buy Self-Driving Cars

Every technological leap requires some vision. Some more than others. In the case of self-driving cars, it seems apparent that at some point in the future, every car will be autonomous.

A Candid Talk with Ford about Connected Cars and the Future

March 4, 2015

At Mobile World Congress (MWC) in 2015 I spoke with James Buczowski a Henry Ford Technical Fellow about the company’s connected ecosystem experiments and the future. In the booth, Ford showed connected bikes talking to connected cars and subsequently developing connected ecosystems allowing cities to direct drivers to available parking spaces, developing usage-based insurance models.

Sometime back I wrote about connecting Waze to fitness apps to allow drivers to know if a bicycle rider was around the next blind corner. I mentioned this to Buczowski who told me the DOT in the US is working to get vehicles to communicate more effectively and the V2X initiative is designed to allow better vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications.

Why Cradlepoint is Poised for Growth

March 2, 2015

We all know the M2M and IoT spaces are growing like crazy... Our own growing M2M Evolution and IoT Evolution shows are just a few examples of how the marketplaces are on fire as a seamlessly never-ending flow of new customers comes to each iteration of these events.

While many of the conferences in the space are doing well, I have to say the prospects for one of the players in the market - Cradlepoint might be even better. They seem to be in the right place at the right time with the right products.



The company's AER 2100 is a wired router with built-in redundancy - allowing up to two wireless modems to be activated and even a second wired connection. The device is making tremendous gains in the IoT space.

In a conversation with Ken Hosac of the company today I got to learn how security is becoming another major reason for the company's growth.
