Microsoft launches IoT Central to Simplify Internet of Things Management

By News Aggregator

By Richard Hay

This week Microsoft’s Sam George, the Partner Director for Microsoft Azure IoT announced on the companies Internet of Things (IoT) blog that the company is now offering a new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to help companies manage their IoT efforts.

According to George, IoT is now a big part of many companies infrastructure and growing quickly. That means they need a service to help them not only manage the IoT devices they are starting to use but also the means to analyze the vast amounts of data they generate.

Microsoft IoT Central is built upon the companies proven cloud service Microsoft Azure and compliments their existing Azure IoT Suite to enhance the control and customization options of the services.

Right now the service is not available to the general public but you can sign up to get pre-release information and to be notified when access opens up.

In addition, if you are an IoT company looking to possibly partner with Microsoft in this area you can also make contact with them to open up that dialog.

Finally, here is an overview video of the upcoming service:

Tech Notes

By Cablefax Staff

Australia’s National Broadband Network is the 56th member to join CableLabs. NBN will be the group’s first member from the Oceana region. — Starz will use Arris’ DSR-7401 transcoder satellite receiver to reduce its satellite network bandwidth and to prepare for future distribution technologies such as 4K HDR programming. The DSR-7401 also supports legacy MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 SD set-tops. — Nokia OZO and Accedo are partnering to deliver an upgraded VR experience by integrating Nokia’s OZO Player SKD into Accedo’s VR solutions and joint customer projects. The companies will feature their new solutions at next week’s NAB Show in Las Vegas. — Comcast will join the LoRa Alliance, an association of more than 400 companies backing the LoRaWAN standard for low-power wide-area Internet of Things networks. The company will hold a seat on the association’s board of directors and host LoRa’s 8th All-Members Meeting, Open House and Marketplace Exhibition June 12-14 in Philly.

eircom gets its #IPv6 on

By Mat Ford

Ireland will soon be firmly established amongst the many countries around the world seeing strong and growing IPv6 deployment. One of the main reasons for that growth has been renewed IPv6 deployment by eircom and we are delighted that they have registered to join the ranks of World IPv6 Launch network operators.

Eircom Limited, trading as eir, is a fixed, mobile and broadband telecommunications company in Ireland, and a former state-owned monopolist. It is the largest telecommunications operator in the Republic of Ireland, with a division to service the business and corporate telecom markets in Northern Ireland and Britain. Eircom’s deployment has started growing again recently and they are currently ranked 96th by our methodology with an IPv6 deployment percentage of 2.61%.

You can view the full listing of IPv6 network operator measurements for this month.

If you’re a network operator deploying IPv6 and would like to join Jio and the other networks that make up the ranks of World IPv6 Launch participants, please register your network for measurement.

Introducing the Arduino MKRFOX1200

By News Aggregator

By Arduino Team

On Arduino Day, we announced the latest member of the Arduino MKR family: the MKRFOX1200. This powerful IoT development board offers a practical and cost effective solution for Makers looking to add Sigfox connectivity to their projects with minimal previous networking experience.

The MKRFOX1200 shares several similarities with other MKR products, like the MKR1000 and MKRZero, including a compact form factor (67 x 25mm) and a Microchip SAM D21 32-bit Cortex-M0+ microcontroller at its core. The recently unveiled board also features an ATA8520 module for long-range, low-energy consumption, and is capable of running for over six months on two standard AA 1.5V batteries.

Designed for Makers ready to take their IoT projects into the real world, the MKRFOX1200 comes with a GSM antenna that can be attached to the board and a two-year subscription to the Sigfox network. This provides users with full access to Sigfox’s efficient messaging system (up to 140 messages per day), cloud platform, webhooks, APIs, as well as the new Spot’it geolocation service.

MKRFOX1200 can be used in a wide variety of settings, from agriculture (livestock management, smart irrigation and weather stations), to smart cities (dumpster monitoring, air quality networks, street lighting or parking lot tracking), to utility metering and other industrial applications.

“Sigfox loves Makers,” says Nicolas Lesconnec, Head of Developer Relations. “Sigfox aims to empowers billions of new IoT solutions. We’re proud to partner with Arduino, the leading open-source electronics platform, to offer the simplest way to connect anything.”

Sigfox currently operates in over 30 countries, with more to follow in the next few years. (Use this map to see whether it has been deployed or is rolling out in your area.) The first version of the MKRFOX1200 is compatible with Sigfox Radio Configuration Zone 1 (868MHz, 14dBm), meaning it is only supported in network-covered regions of Europe, the Middle East, and South Africa.

Interested? You can find the MKRFOX1200’s specs here, and watch Massimo Banzi’s overview below. The board is now available on Arduino’s European online store!

Learning the data, automatically – Part 2

By Sheetal Kumbhar

Part one of this series looked at how the data collected by autonomous cars can be analysed and used by insurers and car manufacturers to constantly develop and improve both vehicles and their risk. The next step is to consider how that data can be used and ‘learnt’ by the cars themselves. All of us […]

Deploy360 @ MENOG17

By Aftab Siddiqui

The Deploy360 team will be busy this week at the MENOG 17 (Middle East Network Operators Group) in Muscat, Oman on 19th and 20th April 2017. The agenda of the event has been announced and the program is packed with great presentations/talks relevant to the network operator’s community. MENOG PC has done a remarkable job once again. At present, the attendee list is showing 272 people who have registered for the events and which is likely to grow as we approach the event.

Day 1 (19th April) is dedicated to the Peering, Content and Interconnection. After the opening and keynote speech, Google, Hurricane Electric (HE), PCH and others will present.

The first session on Day 2 (20th April) will be chaired by Aftab Siddiqui on IPv6. In this session Jan Zorz will present “NAT64/DNS64 Real Life Experiments; Warnings and One Useful Tool”, where he’ll talk about the NAT64/DNS64 experiments undertaken by Go6lab and IPv6-lab. As many mobile operators are moving to IPv6 only, it’s necessary to employ transition mechanisms such as 464XLAT or NAT64. The Go6lab NAT64/DNS64 testbed has therefore been established so that operators, service providers, and hardware and software vendors can see how their solutions work in these environments. This is a really interesting presentation, so be sure to catch this session if you’re involved with IPv6 deployment.

Later during the day in lightning talks, Aftab Siddiqui will present an introduction to MANRS initiative, Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) is an initiative of network operators to establish a very well recognised industry supported baseline for implementation of essential security measures.

This is going to be a special event as MENOG will be celebrating a big landmark i.e. 10 years of successful community effort for the progress and cooperation in the region.

MENOG17 is providing an opportunity to come and meet the team and hear about what the Internet Society is doing, but we’re always happy to talk anytime about technology and how we can make the Internet a better place. If you are planning to attend the event then don’t forget to catch up with Deploy 360 team.
