IoT Gateways

approved-2016-11-22-new-era-blog-post-1-nov-2016-what-to-expect-in-2017-for-iot-gatewaysThe Internet of Things (IoT) is experiencing exponential growth, a trend that will continue in 2017. The main stars of the show will undoubtedly be IoT gateways. They act as traffic controllers, directing the data flowing from connected automated devices to computing facilities.

A fundamental requirement for IoT growth therefore is the necessity for reliable IoT gateways. Without this the vital link between devices and computers cannot be guaranteed.

Industries Where IoT Gateways Will Play a Major Role in 2017

IoT growth in 2017 is likely to be most evident in the industries listed below. Robust and reliable IoT gateways Read the full article →


intelligent video analyticsIntelligent Video Analytics (IVA) is the use of specialized computer hardware and software to automatically analyze video for many purposes, including motion tracking, facial recognition, object recognition, even flame and smoke detection. While this technology has been present for several years, it has come to prominence recently due to several technological factors, including higher resolutions, markedly improved low-power processing technology and the rise of the IoT.

The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the increasing pervasiveness of smart devices that connect to the internet. The pattern of IoT development is bringing about several devices that perform edge analytics and functions, connected wirelessly to a centralized control point through an IoT gateway. This technology allows for markedly improved convenience and efficiency in virtually every sector of business and domestic life. Whether it’s controlling the devices and equipment in your home, or managing the processes in a factory, or performing predictive maintenance on an elevator, IoT is involved.

Put the Two Together

IoT and IVA are two concepts that naturally go together. As just one example, consider video security Read the full article →

iot gateway industrial computingApplication of the Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly throughout industry and interacting with aspects of our daily lives. Gartner, one of the world’s leading IT research and advisory companies, predicts that the IoT will include 26 billion connected units by 2020.

The spread of IoT technology has been made possible by cloud computing.

The IoT will generate massive amounts of data that need to be directed through gateways to cloud computing facilities. These gateways must be robust enough to filter, collate and process data before it’s sent to the cloud.

IoT gateways act as traffic controllers to direct data between devices and computers. Gateway failure will one day be as impactful to a business or our daily lives as a power outage is now. Here we outline some of the many uses for IoT gateways in industrial computing.
