M2M, the Other IoT by Noel Portugal

clip_image001

 

Before IoT became ‘The’ buzzword, there was M2M (machine to machine). Some industries still refer to IoT as M2M, but overall the term Internet of Things has become the norm. I like the term M2M because it describes better what IoT is meant to do: Machines talking to other machines.

This year our team once again participated in the AT&T Developer Summit 2016 hackathon. With M2M in our minds, we created a platform to allow machines and humans report extraordinary events in their neighborhood.  Whenever a new event was reported (by machine or human),  devices and people (notified by an app) connected to the platform could react accordingly.  We came with two possible use cases to showcase our idea.

Virtual Gated Community

Gated communities are a great commodity for those wanting to have privacy and security. The problem is that usually these communities come with a high price tag. So we came up with a turnkey solution for a virtual gate using M2M. We created a device using the Qualcomm DragonBoard 410c board with wifi and bluetooth capabilities. We used a common motion sensor and a camera to detect cars and people not belonging to the neighborhood. Then, we used Bluetooth beacons that could be placed in at the resident keychains. When a resident drove (or walked) by the virtual gate, it would not trigger the automated picture and report to the system, but if someone without the Bluetooth beacon drove by, the system will log and report it. Read the complete article here.

HCL Predictive Maintenance Solution based on IoT Cloud Service

clip_image002

 

Luis Weir and the HCL team build an excellent PaaS showcase for predictive maintenance.

Predictive Maintenance HCL PaaS Showcase

• Industry value proposition solving a business problem

• PaaS services: IoT, MCS, PCS, ICS

Industries such as aeronautics, automotive, manufacturing, high-tech and even healthcare always deal with the management of thousands of assets. This activity is complex in very costly. Even more so due to manual business processes and disconnected systems (many of them legacy). HCL’s ServiSmart solution reduces costs by connecting assets into a streamlined and pre-built end-to-end digital business process to automate tasks such as fault recognition and diagnosis, work allocation, repairs tracking and ongoing maintenance.

Internet of Things (IoT) Cloud Service available

clip_image001The News

Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service is now available!  Oracle IoT Cloud Service is a secure and scalable platform to help organizations quickly build and deploy IoT applications. This new offering allows customers to gain new data-driven insights and drive actions from IoT by connecting, analyzing and integrating device data into business processes and applications like remote equipment monitoring and asset tracking.

Value Proposition

The three core elements of IoT Cloud Service are – connect, analyze and integrate

         Connect –  Using IoT Cloud Service, users can collect data from any device in any market—reliably and securely. It abstracts away the technical challenges of connecting to devices/gateways and accelerates your time to market with an open, secure, and scalable platform.

         Analyze –  Gathering IoT data is pointless if customers can’t get value from it. IoT Cloud Service performs real-time analytics and enables big data and predictive analytics to deliver the enriched enterprise data that enables you to identify new services and improve customer satisfaction.

         Integrate –  IoT Cloud Service extends enterprise applications using open interfaces and pre-integrations with Oracle’s platform-as-a-service (PaaS), software-as-a-service (SaaS) and on-premise applications to reduce total cost of ownership for IoT data-enriched applications and processes.

Need to Know

Here are some assets and information to help you effectively sell Oracle IoT Cloud Service into your accounts:

         Sales Tools and Collateral:  Customer-facing content available on cloud.oracle.com/iot

1.      Create opportunities using IoT Discovery Workshop: contact us for more information

2.      Access all IoT presentations from Open World 2015 here. (SOA Community membership required)

3.      Access customer facing e-book & solution brief

         Publicity: Oracle Internet of Things was announced in a press release at Oracle OpenWorld 2015 and is included in ongoing social media activities.

         Pricing and Availability:  Oracle IoT Cloud Service is now orderable and pricing for Metered and non-Metered (Subscription) is now available in the Price Book.  Pricing will be available at cloud.oracle.com shortly.

Introducing the Oracle IoT Cloud by Attila Németh

 

clip_image002Oracle released its newest cloud product, the Oracle Internet of Things (IoT) Cloud Service, a couple of days ago. We have shared our experience with the product at the DOAG 2015 conference where we have also shown a showcase demonstrating the capabilities of the IoT Cloud Service. With this article we are starting a series of posts showing some key aspects of the product.

First of all, a brief introduction: what is IoT and what does the Oracle IoT Cloud Service provide?

More than a year has passed since we have built our first IoT demo. The article gives a good overview about what the Internet of Things is, how the architecture can be set up, etc. The retrospective at the end of our pilot project back then shows the key aspects for a successful adoption.

The high level view of the Oracle IoT Cloud Service is shown in the picture below.

Data from “things” – devices somewhere around the world – is sent to the Oracle IoT Cloud Service. This can be a direct connection if the device supports it or an indirect one in which case the device communicates with a gateway (possibly even over a proprietary protocol) and the gateway forwards the data to the IoT Cloud Service.

All these devices and their connections are managed by the product. Metadata attributes like device category or location can be added to devices to help find devices quickly (for example to locate a faulty device).

Data sent to the cloud can be either forwarded directly to backend systems (which can be either in the cloud or on premise) or it can be analysed in the cloud and the result of the analysis can be forwarded to other systems – for example to a BI System for producing more detailed reports or to an ERP system to keep track of the assets.
