Dell is introducing new research
on smart buildings and will join Intel to discuss its findings at the Intelligent
Buildings Conference (IBcon) in Las Vegas today. Enabling building
automation is a key element of Dell’s strategy of supporting customers
around the world and across various industries in realizing their vision
for the Internet of Things (IoT). Dell and Intel are helping architects
and organizations imagine the next generation of integrated,
open-architected, IP-centric, connected, high-performance, sustainable,
energy-efficient, operationally efficient, and intelligent buildings.
At IBcon today, during the Internet of Things and the Impact to
Commercial & Corporate Real Estate session, Intel representatives will
discuss the IoT technology trends that will materially impact how system
integrators manage and deliver services in the future. During this
session, Intel, with the support of Dell, will describe how devices will
become Internet connected and how highly automated systems will replace
analog to lead to more efficient, engaging, and profitable real estate.
“This new way of thinking about architecture – overlaying an IT network,
connecting all traditionally unconnected equipment, and analyzing and
controlling business processes without human intervention – will lead to
much better managed assets, which translates to happier occupants and
improved finances,” said Glenn Wintrich, innovation leader, CTO office,
Dell. “This roadmap and productization for the smart buildings market
segment is just the beginning of Dell’s service offerings. Look for more
to come on IoT and building automation in the future.”
“Dell’s strategy for creating the framework for the enterprise
architecture of smart buildings aligns well with Intel’s vision of the
Internet of Things,” said Eric Free, vice president, Smart Homes and
Buildings, Internet of Things Group, Intel. “Intel® Gateway Solutions
enable smart buildings from existing equipment, which along with edge
analytics capabilities, can be harnessed to save energy, save money,
save resources, save valuable time and potentially save lives.”
Dell is taking its IoT focus a step further by collaborating with others
in the industry (including Intel) to help architects and IT
organizations capitalize on these transformative technology approaches
for smart buildings and the Internet of Things. In a Dell white
paper made available today, Dell outlines its recommendations for
organizations interested in the smart building trend:
1. Define Organization’s As-Is and To-Be state: Take stock in the
current systems and subsystems in a centralized list. Use a Maturity
Matrix as an engagement method to assess where the organization is, and
how to get to where it wants to be. Focus first on the business outcome
or user experience that the organization wants to create.
2. Technology and Project Timeline: Outline the desired outcome,
time requirements, and standard building blocks required to achieve your
desired business case objectives and end result. This fosters
discussions that determine business relevance and return on investment
3. Open Reference Architecture: Utilize a non-proprietary, open
reference architecture system that takes into account the existing
infrastructure, as well as the types of connected systems the
organization wants to create.
4. Industrialization: Architect an industrial environment and
provide a Software Development Kit (SDK) for the architecture, so teams
can develop software across disparate systems. A great reference point
to develop an SDK is to break the systems up along the lines of
automation and analyze the data.

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things.
And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem.
We’ve seen band aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It doe...

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage.
Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...
