Connectivity, Security and the Industrial Internet of Things

Embedded goes IoT: Today, a wide range of connected Embedded Systems is available on the market. And the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is driving the addition of more connected devices. But not only “Connectivity” is essential to the success of the IIoT, “Security” is critical too.

To learn more about Connectivity and Security for the Industrial Internet of Things we have put together for you a Microsite with on-demand Webinars, White Papers and technical Articles.


Vortex II - The Industrial IoT Connectivity Standard

Vortex has always focused on addressing the challenges characteristic of Industrial IoT systems and with 2.4 release sets a the a new standard. This on-demand Webinar introduce the new features introduced in with Vortex 2.4 and showcases how innovative companies are using Vortex for building Industrial Internet of Things applications.


Building Secure & Reliable IoT Devices

Network security will be one of the defining issues for embedded developers connecting to the IoT. Mass connectivity will present new risks as companies transmit and store data to create much richer and more valuable products and services. In this webltak, HCC Embedded CEO Dave Hughes discusses the challenges in building secure and reliable IoT devices and how verifiable software quality offers a major competitive advantage in security.


Industrial-Grade IoT Device-to-Cloud Connectivity Platform

Express Logic’s X-Ware IoT Platform is designed for connectivity of deeply embedded IoT sensors, devices, edge routers, and gateways. John Carbone, director, executive staff, Express Logic describes how the X-Ware IoT Platform leverages all the benefits of the high-performance ThreadX RTOS and NetX Duo dual IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP stack, and adds new IoT protocol support for IPv6 over Low Power Wireless Personal Area Networks (6LoWPAN), Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT), Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) and Lightweight M2M (LWM2M).


Real-time Data Sharing between Medical Devices in Next Generation Healthcare Systems

The OMG’s DDS standard is emerging as an important IoT technology that can be used to address many of the challenges faced by the healthcare community. DDS supports a data-centric publish and subscribe communication model and can enable large numbers of distributed medical devices and other healthcare information systems to communicate with each other asynchronously and in real-time.


Global wireless connectivity for IoT

SIGFOX’s solution is based on a dedicated global IoT wireless network. It delivers ubiquitous connectivity to billions of objects and complements existing high-bandwidth systems by providing economical, low-power (LPWAN), two-way transmission of small quantities of data over long distances, thus lowering cost barriers to wide implementation of the IoT, extending the battery and service life of connected devices.


Quick IoT connectivity from specialized development kits

Specifically designed development kits provide hardware, software, firmware and tools for the IoT system, letting the developer concentrate entirely on the application development for his unique implementation. With such a wide variety of development kits available, getting an IoT system up and running has never been easier.


System design enablement and verification for the IoT

This article introduces some new additions to the Cadence Verification Suite, which makes it the go-to solution for verification and software development for designs in the new age of the Internet of Things.

 


From CE to IoT Core: Microsoft and the rise of real-time applications

This article shows how a combination of low-powered, small form factor Intel Atom processors, Microsoft’s Windows 10 OS for IoT devices, and a real-time platform like IntervalZero’s RTX6 can provide a solution for the legacy of Windows Compact (CE).


Security portfolio gives protection from industrial and IoT threats

The industrial and IoT markets present security considerations unlike anything embedded developers have ever faced. By offering a comprehensive and robust set of security features in both hardware and software, Renesas Synergy Platform delivers a sure path to longterm product integrity.

 


Benefits and use cases of multiprotocol connectivity for IoT applications

To simplify IoT design, Silicon Labs has expanded its Wireless Gecko SoC portfolio to support advanced wireless switching capabilities, enabling a single SoC device to seamlessly support standards-based and proprietary protocols. In this presentation, Skip Ashton, Vice President of Software at Silicon Labs, explains the benefits and use cases of multiprotocol connectivity for IoT applications.


Easy-to-use embedded wireless stack for IoT

UbiquiOS Technology discusses security enhancements to their secure and easy-to-use embedded wireless stack that shortens time-to-market for applications implementing low-cost and low-power wireless connectivity. Rusty Stapp, VP Sales and Marketing at UbiquiOS, explains how the stack now supports end-to-end Transport Layer Security (TLS 1.2) functionality in a microcontroller-based Secure Element.


Addressing IoT impact on software engineering

Manufacturers need to carefully evaluate the cyber threats and the level of exposure of IoT devices. New levels of software integrity can only be achieved if teams can eliminate both accidental coding errors and intentional design-in vulnerabilities, through efficient analysis techniques suitable for the typical highly complex applications of today.
