Gemalto and Huawei claim a ‘cost-effective’ narrowband solution for mass market IoT

By Zenobia Hegde

To help device manufacturers meet a growing demand for long-lasting low-power NarrowBand (NB) IoT modules, Gemalto and Huawei – via its semiconductor arm, HiSilicon – are working together to develop the next generation of modules that combine an extra level of security and consume very low power. By combining the expertise from both companies, these NB-IoT modules will help manufacturers reduce the cost and size of their devices, and lengthen the battery life of the devices to up to ten years.

NB IoT has been developed to address lower bit rates and lower cost segments, and works virtually anywhere. It offers ultra-low power consumption enabling devices to be battery operated for periods of up to 10 years. Applications include smart parking sensors, intruder and fire alarms, personal healthcare appliances, tracking devices, and street lamps to name a few. According to ABI Research, NB IoT modules connecting objects to networks are forecast to represent over 20% of all cellular shipments by 2021.

“2017 is the year of commercial NB IoT rollouts for us, and we will be building 30 such networks in 20 countries worldwide by the end of the year. Huawei has been a major player in this arena, and we continue to capitalise on this vast opportunity,”said XiongWei, president of LTE solution, Huawei. “We look to supply the market with solutions that provide stable connectivity, low energy consumption, and cost efficiency. The network roll-out will now come with an enhanced integration and flexibility thanks to this collaboration with Gemalto.”

“The combination of our expertise in IoT cellular connectivity, and digital s​ecurity, and Huawei’s high-performance NB IoT chipsets will help device manufacturers and service providers take the plunge into cellular IoT mass deployment thanks to a standardised solution,” said Suzanne Tong-Li, SVP Greater China and Korea for Mobile Services and IoT and China president, Gemalto. “Our collaboration simplifies the implementatio​​​n of NB IoT projects combining solid security and flexibility.”

Accelerating IoT Deployments to Achieve Business Goals Faster | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #API

The “Internet of Things” is an exciting area of tech, one in which industry experts estimate there will be more than 30 billion connected IoT devices by 2020. IoT is the inter-networking and instrumentation of physical devices – everything from streets, cars, factories, power grids, ice caps, satellites, and clothing to phones, microwaves, milk containers, planets, human bodies, etc.
IoT creates an opportunity to measure, collect and analyze an ever-increasing variety of behavioral statistics. That being said, data, and more importantly insight into the data, is key for enhanced business value and achieving goals quickly. The proliferation of IoT devices and the sheer volume of large data streams have changed the data processing characteristics that we were accustomed to, forcing new architectures and infrastructure that are designed for streaming data, real-time insights, and real-time analytics.

Electric Cloud brings native pipeline automation to mainframe, microservices environments

By Zenobia Hedge

Electric Cloud, the provider in Adaptive Release Automation, announced a new version of its flagship ElectricFlow DevOps Automation platform, which includes enhanced capabilities to better manage, deliver and report on applications in both microservices and zOS mainframe environments.

“Today’s applications are complex – from mobile, distributed, cloud, microservices, to mainframe – often all at the same time,” said Carmine Napolitano, CEO of Electric Cloud. “Delivering these applications smoothly and ensuring everything works together can cause a lot of anxiety and friction.

The new functionality in ElectricFlow helps eliminate toolchain and process silos among these various groups. This means that mainframe teams can now fully participate in a company’s digital transformation efforts. It also means it’s both safe — and easy — for developers and downstream operations teams to adapt to and adopt modern technologies, like microservices.”

Comprehensive mainframe integration

ElectricFlow support for mainframe goes beyond simple deployment to include native automation capabilities both pre- and post-deployment. In addition, mainframe users enjoy the full benefits of our pipeline governance and security to fully meet strict audit and compliance requirements. In addition, new Mainframe capabilities include:

Exclusive system-level automation on z/OS, including JCL code and REXX
Native WebSphere and DB2 deployments on Mainframe
Integration with Compuware ISPW to extend DevOps practices to the Mainframe lifecycle
Integration with Compuware Topaz suite to incorporate static code analysis, unit testing and functional testing in the Mainframe pipeline
The unique ability to easily extend all the above to other Mainframe SCCM tools through a robust API and DSL

Natively model and deploy microservices, anywhere

ElectricFlow now provides teams more granular control over their microservices-based systems by creating a native microservices model. Treated as first-level objects, microservices can now be modeled independently of applications and environments, making it easier and more predictable to deploy containers either inside applications or as stand-alone, shared foundational components to any container runtime environment.

Previous versions of ElectricFlow solved common container management problems, such as container-specific scripts and automation, and version dependency at runtime, especially with large container inventories. This version of ElectricFlow builds on top of that market-leading release coordination to make it even easier and more efficient to manage containers through to production.

In addition, a series of new plug-ins for deploying to native Docker environments, Docker Swarm, and Docker Enterprise further supports the goal of “Model Once, Deploy Anywhere.”

Visibility into microservices deployments, immediately

As microservices are now a foundational element to digital transformation strategies, it’s vitally important to have a complete view of where they are, how they are being deployed – and how successful these deployments are – in addition to other key pipeline performance metrics.

Carmine Napolitano

ElectricFlow DevOps Insight now includes new dashboards, which highlight information about microservices deployments in a given time period, by environment and per cluster. The microservices dashboard can be broken down by successes, failures, most commonly deployed, which clusters are most heavily utilised, etc. In addition, DevOps Insight provides details on how many microservices were deployed by ElectricFlow vs. how many were deployed directly.

Stunningly positive results

For over 30 years, Electric Cloud customer SOMOS used a mainframe to […]
