IoT Remote Monitoring

By IoT Now Magazine

The transformation from products to services has the potential to move enterprises from being providers of products to becoming service providers. At the same time, organizations can switch from one-time sale revenue to recurring monthly revenues for the services they provide.

With analyst firm IDC reporting that manufacturers want to capture upwards of 30% of their revenues from services in the future, there’s a clear direction of travel towards servitization. However, the fire and forget products of today will have to radically alter to fit this model. They must become fully connected and integrated into the wider IoT ecosystem, sharing their data and delivering powerful business value. This evolution is explored in greater depth in the PTC whitepaper: Service Transformation: Evolving Your Service Business in the Era of Internet of Things.

PTC explores how everything from domestic washing machines to cars, heavy plant, healthcare equipment and factory machines will be connected and disseminating data for analysis. However, it is the higher value equipment, such as mining equipment, that has the strongest initial business case.

Specialised areas of the market have a high potential for success. Even though equipment can be dispersed across geographies, it is relatively small in volume. In addition, that equipment is valuable and tends to present a substantial cost in capex for its owner. Finally, the cost also makes it easier to extract savings and efficiencies that make an investment in IoT viable and attractive.

Smart grids to save city dwellers $14bn in energy costs by 2022, says Juniper Research

By Zenobia Hegde

New data from Juniper Research has found that the development of smart grids linked to smart cities will result in citizens saving $14 billion (€11.67 billion) per annum in energy bills by 2022. This is up from the $3.4 billion (€2.83 billion) saving estimated for 2017, resulting from smart metre rollouts, energy-saving policies and sensing technology to improve grid reliability and efficiency.

As part of the new study, Smart Cities: Strategies & Forecasts in Energy, Transport & Lighting 2017-2022, Juniper analysed and ranked global cities to assess their performance and approach towards energy consumption and delivery:

Seoul
San Francisco
New York
Portland, OR
Barcelona

“Seoul’s large-scale deployment of electric vehicle charging infrastructure, smart street lighting and smart metre rollouts will undoubtedly accelerate the development of smart grid infrastructure to manage these elements,” remarked research author Steffen Sorrell.

Renewables & Blockchain transform the grid

Juniper found that the high cost of carbon capture and storage technology was making fossil fuel investment uneconomical. With the projected cost of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar falling close to $60 (€50.03) per MWh (Megawatt hour) in 2022, it predicted the inevitable investment would force accelerated deployment of smart grid solutions to reliably scale renewable energy.

Furthermore, the research argued that the business case for distributed renewable generation would be strengthened by the application of blockchain. Here, dramatic efficiencies along the value chain could be achieved, by simplifying a certification system currently susceptible to accounting errors and increased costs.

Policy required

Juniper found that with smart city budgets now being discussed and allocated worldwide, policy had become more important than the technology. For instance, it argued that MaaS (Mobility as a Service) could drastically reduce city congestion by virtue of nearly eliminating the need for private transport.

Nevertheless, it claimed that MaaS would never come to fruition without strict city policy enforcement. For that reason, it predicted that cities in Far East Asia would become ‘true’ smart cities earlier than their Western counterparts.

Digital transformation drives strong adoption of Hyper Converged Infrastructure in the UK, NetApp survey shows

By Zenobia Hegde

NetApp has announced the findings of its study to uncover the true scale of digital disruption. In a survey of 501 UK information technology decision makers from the full spectrum of the enterprise, NetApp found that 82% of businesses are in the midst of digital transformation.

Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI) emerged as the answer for digital transformation acceleration. In all, 22% of respondents adopted the technology for scalability, and 20% for access to data.

Key findings:

Digital transformation is a top concern for big businesses – The level of concern is high among larger businesses, with 42% seeing digital transformation as a primary concern. Only 2% say digital transformation is a low priority.
HCI is already in use for the majority of businesses – To navigate increasingly data-driven enterprises, HCI is the solution of choice, with 80% of UK businesses already using it and 11% planning to in the next 12 months. Only 4% say they have no plans to adopt HCI.
Security is a key motivation for HCI adoption – Security is the leading motivation for HCI adoption (54%), with ease of use (44%) and cost savings (41%) following close behind. However, 49% state hardware costs as a primary concern when considering HCI adoption. With 78% of IT decision makers indicating that they are ready for HCI technology, the market is ripe for a next-gen HCI solution.

“We are in the middle of a massive shift from hardware to software environments,” said Tim Pitcher, vice president, NGDC, NetApp. “It is clear from NetApp’s research that businesses are informed and making the move to more software-defined infrastructures. Digital transformation is leaving no business untouched, and it is encouraging to see the openness to change, with the majority of UK businesses already using HCI.

NetApp’s next-gen HCI solution is set to plug the market gap with its data fabric integration and automation capabilities. It is not only smaller businesses that benefit from HCI’s automation features, but big businesses too – such features could go some way to alleviating their concerns around digital transformation.”

NetApp HCI is claimed to be the world’s first enterprise-scale hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) solution that offers enterprise-grade performance, flexibility and scale and automation. Running on SolidFire technology and delivered on a NetApp designed architecture, NetApp HCI enables enterprises, midsize businesses, and service providers to maximise their infrastructure by simplifying management and independently scaling both compute and storage resources.

Programming’s Heavy Hitters Will Make Presence Felt at CES

By Alex Silverman

The convergence of programming and distribution into an all-in-one video business will be on display this week at CES 2018, as media stalwarts and digital disruptors come together to offer insight into where the business is headed. OTT and streaming video will once again be a well-covered subject, as more established players embrace direct-to-consumer offerings.

Disney, whose transition to OTT is perhaps the most-anticipated in the industry, will be well represented. Disney evp, publishing and digital media Andrew Sugerman’s Wednesday afternoon appearance on the “State of the Stream” panel is a chance to glean more insight into the company’s plans for its supposed Netflix competitor (expected in 2019). Disney ABC Television Group pres Ben Sherwood is also slated to discuss streaming during a “headliner conversation” Wednesday morning.

Also on Wednesday, Discovery pres/CEO David Zaslav will participate in a “Future of Video” panel alongside A+E Networks pres/CEO Nancy Dubuc, YouTube chief business officer Robert Kyncl and Comcast Cable pres of advertising Marcien Jenckes, among others. Zaslav, who will likely address the company’s pending merger with Scripps Networks, has been vocal about what he perceives to be a lack of quality virtual MVPD options in the US market. Fox, Scripps, Turner, Starz and NBCU are among the other programming groups represented in this year’s lineup. Digital players like Amazon, Hulu and Facebook —all of whom have multibillion-dollar content budgets this year—are also sending execs to discuss the OTT landscape. In addition to streaming video, attendees can expect to hear plenty about emerging technologies like 5G, the Internet of Things and AI.

The broadcast industry will have a revelatory moment Tuesday when the Advanced Television Systems Committee hosts a ceremony commemorating the first complete set of standards for ATSC 3.0 deployment. ATSC pres Mark Richer, CTA pres/CEO Gary Shapiro and NAB pres/CEO Gordon Smith will lead the celebration surrounding the hotly anticipated advancement. On the show floor, Comcast is focusing its efforts this year on its home automation business as one of the featured exhibitors in the Smart Home Marketplace. Turner is the presenting sponsor of the CES Sports Zone, a 4,900-square-foot installment at the Sands. Scripps will host tech consultant Shelly Palmer’s annual “Best of CES This Year” address in its invitation-only space just off the show floor. Palmer will also interview the Property Brothers of HGTV fame about home technology.

On the regulatory front, FCC chmn Ajit Pai withdrew from his highly anticipated appearance in the wake of his rollback of net neutrality. Still, a session featuring three FCC commissioners—Republicans Brendan Carr and Mike O’Rielly alongside Democrat Mignon Clyburn—could produce fireworks of its own. Clyburn has been vocal about her disdain for the FCC nixing net neutrality. FTC commish Terrell McSweeny and NTIA asst secretary David Redl are also slated to sit on the panel moderated by CTA vp, regulatory affairs Julie Kearney. Other hot regulatory topics will likely include spectrum allocation, infrastructure regulations, 5G deployment practices and IoT. Check back with Cablefax throughout the week for dispatches from CES.
