Wyconn Joins the Industrial Internet Consortium

Company's Radically Simpler Approach Is Designed to Speed Adoption of the Industrial Internet Across All Sectors

VIENNA, AUSTRIA and MARLBOROUGH, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/16/14 -- Wyconn announced today that it has joined the Industrial Internet Consortium, the organization founded earlier this year by AT&T, Cisco, GE, IBM and Intel to support the adoption of the Industrial Internet.

Wyconn's products for OEMs, enterprises, and telecom companies combine the functions of a router, access point, firewall, and gateway and include embedded global SIMs, all managed through a web-based management console. The design of this hardware-software solution lowers the cost and time required for large-scale deployments to connect people, sensors, machines, and organizations.

"The Industrial Internet Consortium was founded as an international organization and we're excited that Wyconn has signed on as one of our first European members," said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director of the IIC. "Wyconn understands the practical challenges with large-scale deployments and we look forward to leveraging their expertise as we continue to accelerate the growth of the Industrial Internet."

Sometimes also referred to as Machine to Machine (M2M) or the Internet of Things (IoT), by 2020 the Industrial Internet is projected to connect 50 billion things, with some estimates as high as 200 billion things.

"Through work with some of Europe's largest companies over the last ten years, we've seen firsthand the importance, cost, and complexity of large-scale deployments," said Adi Reschenhofer, CEO of Wyconn. "This is what led us to launch Wyconn last year and, with the introduction of our product line this spring, join the Industrial Internet Consortium."

The radically simpler approach to the design of Wyconn's products combines the simplicity of installing modern consumer products with the web-based tools large enterprises, telecoms, and service providers need to manage devices that number in the hundreds of thousands.

In addition, Wyconn devices run applications that can be deployed, managed, and updated centrally. Standard applications available now include Wyconn Router Companion, pairing a Wyconn device with a remote router or switch for out-of-band management, and Wyconn Branch Connector for enterprises, retail chains, and distributed services companies.

Wyconn will participate in the IIC quarterly meeting in Boston June 18 - 19 and in CTIA's Super Mobility Week (September 9 - 11) in Las Vegas, and will present at M2M Innovation World Congress in Marseille (September 22 - 24).

As organizations shift towards IT-as-a-service models, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and now cloud environments grows with it. Commvault can ensure protection, access and E-Discovery of your data – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud, or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enterprise. In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Randy De Meno, Chief Technologist - Windows Products and Microsoft Part...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
"Cloud computing is certainly changing how people consume storage, how they use it, and what they use it for. It's also making people rethink how they architect their environment," stated Brad Winett, Senior Technologist for DDN Storage, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
FinTechs use the cloud to operate at the speed and scale of digital financial activity, but are often hindered by the complexity of managing security and compliance in the cloud. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Sesh Murthy, co-founder and CTO of Cloud Raxak, showed how proactive and automated cloud security enables FinTechs to leverage the cloud to achieve their business goals. Through business-driven cloud security, FinTechs can speed time-to-market, diminish risk and costs, maintain continu...
CIOs and those charged with running IT Operations are challenged to deliver secure, audited, and reliable compute environments for the applications and data for the business. Behind the scenes these tasks are often accomplished by following onerous time-consuming processes and often the management of these environments and processes will be outsourced to multiple IT service providers. In addition, the division of work is often siloed into traditional "towers" that are not well integrated for cro...

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
