How Organizations can get the most out of their IoT Investment

Internet-of-Things-1920xx

The Internet of Things has ushered in a sea change in a variety of business sectors. It’s driving positive change: lower waste, higher efficiency, a more joined-up supply chain, and a more proactive approach to outages. In 2019, these changes are impacting a wide range of industries, as demonstrated by the variety of conference tracks available at Internet of Things World in Santa Clara this month.

At the same time, our adoption of IoT at work (following our widespread adoption at home) is rapidly increasing the number of devices connected to the internet. The numbers are already phenomenal and are set to grow quickly. Connected, active IoT devices are predicted to number 10 billion by 2020, and 22 billion by 2025. As businesses adopt the new tech in ever-increasing numbers, competitors will catch on; the advent of AI will also give us more ways to use the data that’s flowing in from our sensors.

This welcome investment in IoT over the next five to six years should give rise to huge efficiency gains, benefiting businesses, consumers, and — potentially — the planet. What could possibly go wrong?

How Secure is IoT Really?

An IoT device is no different to any other network-connected device. In itself, IoT is not risky. But it can pose risks in specific situations.

Consider a router on your network that is rarely checked for new firmware. As the router’s software ages, and it falls behind the update cycle, it becomes more appealing to hackers who have figured out how to get around its security.

IoT is no different. A poorly-managed IoT deployment generates significant risks and the sheer number of devices just multiplies the risk; there’s a whole lot of maintenance to plan for. Without ongoing investment into security, all of this new hardware is setting us up for a fall unless we understand the importance of keeping it secure.

Same Old Same Old?

In actual fact, IoT security is no more exotic than general network security — there’s just a lot more of it. Each device is a potential weak point that could be exploited if it wasn’t correctly secured. For example, every device needs to run the latest manufacturer firmware, and each one needs to have a unique password that’s difficult to guess.

Some of the techniques in use to secure IoT deployments are relatively straightforward. According to industry figures, 45% of companies have decided to use a dedicated network for IoT, keeping the sensors siloed from the wider company network. That’s a sensible move. It’s also sensible to look at physical security, monitoring, and access. Where are your sensors? Who can get to them? If someone installed unwelcome software on the network via a rogue device, how quickly would you know?

All of this points to a need for much wider investment in training and skills so that there are enough people ready to provide the necessary maintenance and technical support. Again, a high proportion of businesses are working towards this; 46% say they’re rolling out internal training for everyone — not just those in IT roles.

Final Thoughts

Digital transformation has taught us valuable lessons about technology adoption. In the rush to move to the cloud, some businesses failed to keep their migrations reigned in tight. Shadow IT wreaked havoc as employees found their own solutions. BYOD led to malware infection and uncontrolled data transfer.

As we start the process of embedding IoT (and, soon, AI), we’re in the fortunate position of having learned lessons from mistakes of the past. With IoT, we now know that achieving staff buy-in will be key across every organization and sector. Businesses would do well to remember that these devices are not ‘set and forget’. So, while early adoption is great — and should ensure a head start on competitors — it would be unwise to roll out a slew of IoT sensors without the people who are well training in how to maintain them.

Additionally, we’ve learned that ensuring cyber security it isn’t just a case of providing tech support when things go wrong, although that is important. It’s also about engineering the required culture change so that everyone knows how important cyber security is and keeps it top of mind once IoT is successfully deployed.

New U-Linc IoT device protocol could transform hotel stays

U-Linc

U-Linc, a new Internet of Things (IoT) device protocol which has been developed at the University of Surrey’s 5G Innovation Centre, could dramatically improve the experience of staying at a hotel.

One of the key challenges with smart home applications and similar smart device implementations, such as those which could be used in hotels, is that users typically need a different app for each type of technology – e.g. lighting, heating, security, etc., and this leads to a disjointed customer experience.

U-Linc,  a next-generation protocol likened to Bluetooth, allows users to access and control numerous IoT devices from different manufacturers via one interface. When users decide to operate an IoT device via U-Linc, a branded interface is created for that device. Device manufacturers retain control over the customisation.

Professor David Sampson, Vice-Provost of Research and Innovation at the University of Surrey, said: “We are proud that U-Linc was developed here at the University of Surrey’s 5G Innovation Centre. U-Linc is indicative of the forward and enterprising thinking that we encourage our researchers to adopt.  We are excited to see how this product develops in the years to come.”

Hotel of the future

U-Linc’s creators believe the protocol could have applications in a number of industries, including hospitality, potentially enabling hotels to offer unique experiences for each guest as well as the ability to better manage guest access to hotel rooms, areas and facilities.

A number of hotel chains are eyeing the opportunities offered by the IoT. Late last year, Hilton announced its Connected Room concept, noting that the ‘mobile-centric hotel room’ idea was based on the fact that hotel guests have limited time in their rooms. The experience should be seamless and they don’t have time to learn a lot of new technology each time they check in.

Marriott has also launched the IoT Guestroom Lab to explore the hotel room of the future, including responsive IoT systems to personalise the experience and streamline operations.

User-friendly IoT

SAS predicts that the IoT will be worth £81 billion in the UK alone by 2022. As new devices come onto the market and more areas of life become connected, the need for a user-friendly interface will increase. A protocol such as U-Linc could also have applications in retail, smart cities, industrial settings and connected cars.

U-Linc can be used via a software licence or provided embedded within a chip.

Düsseldorf Airport: Ready for takeoff with smart sensor technology

Deutsche Telekom: Düsseldorf Airport: Ready for takeoff with smart sensor technology

  • Internet of Things (IoT) by Deutsche Telekom supports smooth flight operations.
  • Access road to central tank farm equipped with smart sensor technology.
  • Networking of transport infrastructure is growing in importance.
IoT

Düsseldorf Airport is one of the most important German hubs in international air traffic. In future, digital processes will play a role in successfully handling its more than 24 million passengers annually. Intact, reliable traffic routes and the construction infrastructure form the foundation of these processes. The airport has teamed with Deutsche Telekom and its partner BS2 Sicherheitssysteme to develop a digital monitoring solution for bridges, tunnels, buildings, and other infrastructure objects made of concrete.

Bridge transmits over the IoT

The access road to the airport’s tank farm is a neuralgic point for smooth flight operations. A bridge provides the sole access route to the farm. More than 120 fuel tank trucks, carrying 30,000 liters of kerosene each, commute daily over this stretch of road between runway and container tanks. This enormous load causes material fatigue in the long term. In the future, sensors and the Internet of Things will identify impending damage, preventing bottlenecks in supplying kerosene to the aircraft. 50 sensors in the road surface and bridge copings measure temperature, humidity, and corrosion. This sensor data can help identify critical conditions or irreparable damage to the concrete structures. The renovation measures can be extensive. The data is exchanged over Deutsche Telekom’s machinery and sensor network (Narrowband-IoT) nearly in real time.

The transportation infrastructure is getting smart

“Previously, material samples were needed to gain information about a building’s condition – a complex method that usually involved destruction,” says Michael Hohenecker, Head of Data Management and Building Inspection at Real Estate Management, Düsseldorf Airport. “We have a bottleneck here at the central tank farm. The digital solution protects us against unforeseeable damage to the access road and the disruptions to tank usage that it would entail.”

Other roads around the Düsseldorf Airport are also being equipped with sensors, step by step. The installed sensors have a lifetime of up to 70 years. They can be installed quickly and easily in new construction products or retrofitted in existing concrete structures.

“Düsseldorf Airport is one of the pioneers in Germany that is using IoT technology for its road constructions at the airport,“ says Ingo Hofacker, responsible for IoT business at Deutsche Telekom. “Networking of transport infrastructure is growing in importance. The new network of equipment and sensors is an ideal foundation for data transmission.”

Sensible Sensors – intelligent bridges: IoT live to see at Düsseldorf airport

IoT

Another place where sensors from BS2 Sicherheitssysteme are being deployed is the Köln-Ost junction, where Germany’s Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt) is testing the sensors on their Cologne test grounds, together with Deutsche Telekom’s equipment and sensor network. BS2 Sicherheitssysteme was born in hub:raum, Deutsche Telekom’s startup incubator.

Due to the special properties of the narrowband technology for the Internet of Things (Narrowband IoT), it is an enabler for the IoT. Deutsche Telekom is driving its expansion in Germany, Europe, and North America.

Vodafone to Help Sanku-Project Healthy Children Reach 100 Million People Across Africa in the Fight Against Malnutrition

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Vodafone today announced it is working with Sanku-Project Healthy Children (Sanku-PHC) to equip small flour mills in Africa with Internet of Things (IoT) services to provide fortified flour to millions of people.

Two billion people around the world suffer from micronutrient malnutrition. Fortified flour battles against hidden hunger in developing countries, which includes pervasive issues of nutrition deficiency such as birth defects, child development issues, and blindness.

Sanku-PHC is bringing real-time, data-driven insights to 3,000 small scale flour mills over the next four years, with Vodafone’s global IoT SIM and USB Connect technology helping to significantly scale the programme and improve its efficiency. Sanku-PHC has created a first-of-its-kind technology – the ‘dosifier’ – which enables small African flour mills in rural areas to fortify flour with key nutrients during the milling process, in a way that is sustainable and cost-effective.

In the past, one Sanku worker could only monitor 25 mills, which would fortify flour to feed 125,000 people. Vodafone’s IoT SIM now connects the same worker to 100 mills, which will fortify flour for 500,000 people. The Sanku worker receives alerts remotely and in real-time when the mills run out of fortified flour or require maintenance.

“Our dosifier has been incredibly successful to date, bringing fortified flour to communities in need across the developing world,” said Sanku-PHC Co-founding President and CEO Felix Brooks-church. “Vodafone’s IoT technology gives us the ability to significantly optimise and scale operations. Sanku-PHC currently helps provide fortified flour to around one million people and, with this new IoT connection, we are on a path to reach 100 million people by 2025. ”

As a result of the partnership with Vodafone:

• Sanku-PHC dosifiers now have reliable, secure connectivity with Vodafone’s IoT SIM. Vodafone’s in-country roaming reaches the most remote areas, allowing access to up-to-the-minute information on maintenance, power supply and machine tracking via GPS;

• Sanku-PHC can accurately monitor fortification levels to ensure communities are receiving the benefits of fortified flour; and

• Vodafone’s M-Pesa mobile money service is being used to enable millers to securely make and receive payments on their smartphones, further improving Sanku-PHC ability to scale.

Vodafone and Sanku-PHC are rolling out Vodafone’s global IoT SIM and USB Connect technology to local flour mills in Tanzania and Rwanda, and will continue to implement the technology across Eastern and Southern Africa.
