Le Connected Camp Is Going Into The Next Round

A touch of a pioneering spirit went through the office rooms in French Toulouse about a year ago, when Le Connected Camp opened the application period for start-ups for the first time. But it was actually the French start-up incubator that was initiated to support other young innovators, start-up companies and entrepreneurs getting started with their businesses. However, from the very beginning the signs were promising too. Thus Le Connected Camp, part of the IoT Valley, is able to look back on a successful year and will head into theRead More
Security is essential for the growing Internet of Things. As you probably know, more and more devices are connecting to the Internet every day. It has even been predicted that by 2021 over 28 billion devices will be connected, with 16  billion of them being directly related to the IoT. The infographic below highlights the growing IoT and why security is so important for the billions of new devices. EBV Elektronik is offering support when it comes to security strategies and efficient implementation of safety features into your designs. Please don’t hesitate to getRead More
For consumers the IoT or in other words ubiquitous connectivity and access to nearly every device makes life easier. But let’s face it: for a big number of companies and developers it’s a pain in the ***. The thing is, even if you are familiar with electronics and do have the expertise necessary to build wireless connectivity into your products it is still a major effort. Certification, hardware development, software development, security features, cloud storage, device management, data analytics… there is a vast amount of things you need to considerRead More
Industry 4.0 OPC UA over TSN
As the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as Industry 4.0 are probably the most stressed topics of the last couple years we will skip the “there will be billions of connected devices…” part for this article. Smart factories and sophisticated automation require a complex combination of strategy, technology and flexibility addressing needs from the fieldbus level up to the enterprise level. The complexity and concerns regarding costs, future support, flexibility and maintenance prevent many companies from starting to implement new standards and technologies. However, with the marriage of theRead More

EBV Wearables – The Next Big Thing

As Christmas time is coming closer, people are getting more and more into the hurry to buy gifts for their beloved.  Again, this year fitness wristbands or smart watches will be among the presents under the Christmas tree. Wearable devices are becoming increasingly popular and recognized. According to the market research analyst KcKinsey, the Internet of Things could create a global economic value by 2025 of up to $11 trillion. One tenth could be contributed by wearables alone. The acceptance and reputation of wearables is rising constantly. Many experts speakRead More
Wow, that headline sounds dramatic. Will we really need to battle our own connected kitchen appliances, smartwatches and printers at some point? To answer this questions let’s assess some recent events. Taking Out Some Of The Most Frequently Visited Internet Services With One Attack Just a few weeks back a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack on Domain Name System (DNS) service provider DynDNS caused a major outage of a number of well-known internet pages and brands (e.g. Amazon, PayPal, Spotify, Soundcloud, Twitter). For those not familiar with the termRead More
Industry40-tsn
If you analyse keywords like “Internet of Things” or “Industry 4.0” in Google Trends, you get quite a good impression on how the importance for these subjects changed over the last couple of years. Experts agree unanimously that connected devices will increasingly impact people’s lives in the future. It’s not without reason that one is speaking of the fourth industrial revolution. Technology companies, politicians or visionaries spent a lot of time to discuss these topics and to drive the development forward. Certain prerequisites are required to be fulfilled, such asRead More

Smart home adoption is rather crawling instead of running towards our homes. The main reason: user experience and security issues. However there is a third important factor – the old technology already installed in our homes and well proven but “un-connectable” to the internet. One of the best examples are the heating systems in most European homes. A huge number of houses and apartments use water radiators mounted to the wall and controlled with a simple nob that you turn in order to adjust the temperature. The good news aboutRead More
