With over 130 years experience and a presence in more than 50 countries around the world, and with 20,000 people and 91 plants, the Group is strongly positioned at the high-tech end of the energy and telecom cable sectors. The Group was created through the union of Prysmian and Draka, already leaders in their markets for innovation and technological know-how.
The Internet of Things
(IoT) is expected to grow to include more than 50 billion devices by 2020 – and Broadcom’s out-of-the-box connectivity platforms are providing developers with the tools to kick-start their life-changing devices. As a leader in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
Smart, Broadcom ensures that standards-based connectivity technologies play nicely together.
With all of that embedded hardware engineering already complete, Broadcom’s hardware and Software Development Kits
help to quickly turn creative IoT ideas quickly into prototypes and ready-for-market devices for both large and small companies.
Interoperability is critical to the proliferation of IoT, which is why the WICED platform is bringing secure Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
and Bluetooth Low Energy
(BLE) wireless connectivity to nearly every emerging product category in the IoT ecosystem, including home appliances, health and fitness monitors, automation and asset Tracking
systems, Smart Meters
and an array of consumer electronics devices.
From monitoring the energy efficiency of our homes to finding more productive ways to feed the global population, harnessing these connected “things” and turning massive amounts of raw data into actionable insights will have a transformative impact on society. However, both technical and business challenges are slowing IoT adoption. Decision makers within companies are trying to gain a better grasp of expected ROI, cost, and scalability, while IT managers struggle with integration, Interoperability
, management, and the need to tailor to specific verticals.
Intel is addressing these challenges by offering open and scalable products, fostering a thriving ecosystem, and showing what is possible with pilots and use cases that demonstrate the potential value and ease of deployment. Intel offers a comprehensive portfolio of end-to-end hardware and software with built-in security.
To make IoT simpler to deploy and scale across applications quickly, Intel offer the Intel IoT Platform, a design blueprint that details how to securely connect and manage a fleet of “things” from small sensors to huge server farms that make up the cloud, while using various analytics tools and technologies along the way.
In the near future, billions of pieces of equipment will be connected to one another and massive amounts of data will pouring in. Advanced algorithms, high-powered computing, better connectivity and cloud storage all facilitate the emergence of smart systems. Knowing how to leverage the respective opportunities, however, requires a unique set of skills. Siemens has the engineering, domain and digital know-how to generate performance improvements across the entire value chain, from design to production and operations to maintenance. Digital simulation technology accelerates the plant design, the installation and commissioning as well as the entire product design and production planning process. Multiple components in systems and plants can be intelligently networked to communicate with each other and exchange real-time data. Machine Learning makes complex systems more efficient without human intervention. The intelligent analysis of operational data helps identify patterns and predict potential downtimes. Minimum downtimes boost reliability thanks to lifecycle services.
Smart Connected Operations is a future looking vision that describes what the factory or production line of the future will look like. It will involve Industrial Internet of Things
(IIoT) enabled MOM applications integrated with IIoT enabled assets and IIoT enabled business systems. It is an elemental part of creating the Smart Connected Enterprise and is often where companies have breaks in the strands of the digital thread.
In moving towards this vision, both solution providers and manufacturing organizations are going to have to up the game when it comes to investing in IIoT. These investments will include the creation of new organizations that bring together IT, OT, and business leaders, new technologies that enable connectivity, cloud, big data analytics, and the development of new applications, along with the foresight to see that small pilot projects today could transform entire industries tomorrow.
As microprocessors get ever smaller and more power efficient, smart devices will penetrate our lives like never before. MediaTek is on the forefront of creating platforms for intelligent Wearables
, watches, trackers, home and office appliances, connected facilities, utilities and more. This will allow a revolution of connected devices, giving people and business’ the ability to track, manage and control their environments in a way that they never before had access to, allowing better understanding to improve their lives via better usage, performance and power efficiency.
From our SmartMirror and DoorShow to our digital service offerings like RemoteMonitoring and ActionBoard, the possibilities are almost limitless with connected elevators, escalators, and moving walks.
