SIGFOX And MAREN – It Takes Two To Tango

When we talk about the Internet of Things (IoT), we are not going to get away from the fact that we also have to talk about sensors and connectivity too. In order for an IoT device to carry out a certain command, it needs information first. Information that will be caught by the components responsible to collect data about motion, luminosity, humidity or temperature for instance. In one of our earlier blogs we introduced you our sensor hub platform MAREN already. In this article we want to focus on itsRead More
When Gartner revealed its new list of the top 10 technology trends which will be strategic for organisations in 2016 some well-known names like IoT platforms and 3D printing materials made the list a long with a few newcomers like the ambient user experience and Mesh App and Service Architecture. Only technology trends which have the potential for significant impact on the organisation, like high potential for disruption to the business, end users or IT, the need for a major investment, or the risk of being late to adopt makeRead More
The year 2014 is almost over and we saw some crazy and exciting things happen in the past 12 months. The major trend this year has been the Internet of Things (IoT) which also led the Gartner Hype Cycle chart. Here is a short look-back on the highlights of each vertical segment and more. Identification What an incredible year for identification applications. NFC dual interface products becoming a widely used technology has definitely been a big trend this year.  Enabling the user to easily tap and pair devices to Bluetooth and otherRead More

Cloud Technology – A Crash Course

Cloud technology is a vital part of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) – but what is the cloud? The Cloud is based on data centres, whose data memory, high-performance processors and network technology provide the hardware on which the Cloud provisions are built. Users of Cloud solutions access these resources via the Internet in order to offer their services to end users in the shape of infrastructure, software or platform solutions. A data centre can of course also be used as a solution provider, just like aRead More
It used to be so simple. The Cloud was where everyone stored their digital lives. Then it all changed. In what seems like an impossibly short space of time, the Cloud landscape has evolved from the simple Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) into a matrix of hosted apps and connected components, covering pretty much every imaginable aspect of the Cloud. At the heart of this movement is 43-year-old Hugo Fiennes, formerly of Apple and now CEO of Electric Imp,Read More

Connecting a lot of devices via the cloud or directly, for example via Bluetooth,Read More
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a fascinating topic for companies as well as for consumers. The interconnectivity of everyday devices, like our coffee makers and alarm clocks or our cars and the heater in our homes, offer endless possibilities to simplify our lives and to make them more efficient. The IoT has already arrived partially as we are able to switch on the lights via smartphones and to measure our health constantly with wearable devices. New devices are connected and added to the IoT everyday; but we are justRead More
In my last Blog “The Smart Home Game Part I – it’s on!” I have already described the three main challenges of the rising smart home market: the disagreement on a communication standard, the inadequate security of the networks and the chaos of companies from start ups to industry giants in the field. These problems actually started to make the trend a little boring as no one really seemed to ask the right persons for a solution: the consumers. Things changed when Apple announced their HomeKit. With this framework the company thoughtRead More
