Real-Life Use Cases for Edge Computing

Depending on how many of the 30 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices forecast for global deployment by 2020 rely on the cloud, managing the deluge of IoT-generated data makes proper processing seem near impossible. Furthermore, traditional cloud computing has serious disadvantages, including data security threats, performance issues, and growing operational costs. Because most data […]

Powering Predictive Maintenance from IEEE Innovation at Work

Powering Predictive Maintenance

Predictive maintenance is one of the most compelling use cases for the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). In fact, according to IBM, predictive maintenance can prevent up to 70% of equipment breakdowns, and reduce downtime by as much as 50%. In the IEEE Technology Report on Wake-Up Radio (IEEE, 2017), this use case is highlighted […]

Make IoT Batteries Last Longer: IEEE Wake-Up Radio Infographic: Significantly Improve Battery Life

How to Make IoT Batteries Last Longer

Analyst firm Gartner predicts that there will be 8.4 billion connected “things” in 2017, which will then expand to 20.4 billion Internet of Things (IOT) devices by 2020. That number is staggering. And it is reasonable to expect that a great many of these devices will run on batteries. Yet battery life can be limited. […]
