M2M Communications and the Internet-of-Things

Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Communications used to be a niche topic. But today it is regarded as the key technology of a networked, mobile future. On this microsite we present a collection of White Papers, Articles, Webinars, Videos about M2M and IoT technologies, products, applications and solutions.


Planning a scalable long-term wireless strategy

For companies with global deployments, there is no single right answer for planning a scalable long-term wireless strategy. The best option, focus on solutions that allow for reuse of development, testing, and certification efforts in multiple markets and operator networks, regardless of wireless access technology.
 


Create and generate standard-conform IEEE 802.15.4 test signals

The standard IEEE 802.15.4 defines the physical layer and medium access control sub-layer for low-data-rate wireless connectivity with fixed, portable, and moving devices with no battery or very limited battery consumption requirements. This application note describes how to create and generate standard-conform IEEE 802.15.4 test signals with the R&S Vector Signal Generators (VSG).

 


TI IoT Connectivity + Power Innovation featuring PocketLab

The PocketLab is a wireless sensor that empowers users to gather data about the real world and visualize it on their device in real time. In this webinar we will introduce smart power solutions to extend application life and we will show use cases for real-life wireless sensor network applications based on the SimpleLink SensorTag and finally the creator of the PocketLab, Clifton Roozeboom, will introduce his new product.


Presenting the IoT Quick Start Kit „PingPong“

Ben Hoelke, CEO at Round Solutions talks about Round Solutions PingPong, an embedded IoT/M2M hardware platform made for Software Developers. The platform supports extension boards that add unlimited capabilities. It can be used to easily make physical devices that connect to the web.


Machine-to-Machine communication knows no limits

Ten years ago, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication was still a niche topic. Today, it is regarded as the key technology of a networked, mobile future. Typical applications include real-time monitoring and control that takes into account a raft of different requirements.


Connect building systems to the IoT

In this article, we will explain how smart buildings can connect to the cloud, and show how building owners, equipment providers, and service companies can benefit from this connectivity. Specifically, we highlight ways Intel IoT Gateways can simplify integration of new and existing building equipment.


Open Source solutions for connected applications tomorrow

This article introduces Legato, a new generation of M2M software - an open-source embedded platform designed to simplify the development of M2M applications. It is built on a fully-tested Linux distribution, with a tightly integrated application framework and M2M toolset.


IoT in building management and environmental monitoring

AAEON and its eco-partners introduce innovative Industrial IoT Application Ready Platform (ARP) solutions for Smart Building Management and Environmental Monitoring. Thanks to the support of the most important wireless and wired protocol, machine to machine connection, data exchange and monitoring will not be any more a barrier for Industrial Internet of Things ( IIOT ) revolution.


4G + IPv6 = M2M smart-talking machines

The internet has already revolutionised the way in which people communicate with each other, and now it is ready to enable another revolution: the proliferation of smart communication between machines.
