IoT devices aimed at the enterprise space serve a wide variety of purposes and must designed, tested and deployed in ways that address the unique needs of businesses.
Unlike large-scale, consumer-oriented IoT offerings, enterprise IoT devices must be differentiated to serve specific industry needs as well as provide enterprise-grade availability, security and reliability — but still maintain relatively low cost.
As businesses seek to gain new insights and efficiencies by leveraging the internet of things, RCR Wireless News looks at what enterprises need to know to make the IoT work for them.

The ability to intelligently monitor, manage, and control both IT and OT assets represent huge value drivers for companies looking to onboard IoT solutions. But the factors behind IoT strategy decisions are complex; different parties seek to scale their connected endpoint infrastructure, yet lack a common set of tools to operationalize intended efficiency improvements. In this webinar, we’ll focus on the realm of security, where IT tools (i.e. DNS security) have direct applicability to OT (IoT) applications. The challenge is implementing an integrated model at IoT scale, which requires ML/AI.
Join Ryan Martin, Principal Analyst at ABI Research, and Sanat Kamal Bahl, Director of Product Marketing at Cisco IoT Cloud, as they examine the technologies in each domain that—when deployed successfully—improve agility and decision-making, build in security, and increase the exchange of ideas between departments. In doing so, we will explore success metrics for improving the intelligence of enterprise systems and the trends underpinning the convergence of IT and OT.
The Internet of things (IoT) is growing rapidly and 2018 will be a fascinating year for the IoT industry. IoT technology continues to evolve at an incredibly rapid pace. Consumers and businesses alike are anticipating the next big innovation. They are all set to embrace the ground-breaking impact of the Internet of Things on our lives like ATMs that report crimes around them, forks that tell you if you are eating fast, or IP address for each organ of your body for doctors to connect and check.
2018 and beyond, IoT will see tremendous growth in all directions. Join this webcast to learn and discuss the 8 biggest trends that are the main developments we predict for coming the coming years.

Join us for an Aeris webinar where we introduce and address three common challenges for expanding a company’s capacity to deploy, maintain, and manage IoT devices and services throughout the entire lifecycle.
From subject matter experts, we learn how to:
• Reduce operational costs associated with increased global IoT deployments;
• Manage cellular costs associated with increased usage while buttressing the reliability of their solutions; and
• Use innovative IoT platforms to standardize processes involving distributed supply chains.
Whether your company is on the cusp of expanding IoT solutions globally, engaged in IoT technology transitions, or seeking to reduce the inefficiencies associated with the absence of mature IoT management processes, this webinar will provide clarity and a framework for identifying emergent solutions.

451 Research has covered the adoption of Industrial IoT for several years, and it is a significant area to consider both for existing IT providers and for those industries looking to automate further. IIoT has significant long-term equipment installations, brownfield sites, as well as major new installations adopting all of the latest technology, under its umbrella. This area also has the ongoing organizational struggles between Operational Technology (OT) and IT, making projects more complicated to build and deploy. There are also some noticeable gaps in the approaches to IIoT and its related technologies that may not have been dealing with adequately.
During this webinar, Ian Hughes, Senior Analyst for IoT, VR and AR, and Emily Wentworth, Research Associate, at 451 Research will describe the current state of play of IIoT and then introduce some key challenges and opportunities in the future. Ian will touch on the challenge of defining architectures in IIoT, and testing and implementing solutions. He will further highlight the importance of uniting OT and IT and the role of people in what is often portrayed as a pure automation play, as well as cover how front-line workers will need to engage with IIoT on the shop floor, using tools such as Augmented Reality (AR) to get the full benefit of this digital transformation wave. Emily will cover her work on Cobots in this presentation.
The webinar will be of use to those in the IT industry who will benefit from the OT perspective and vice versa.
Your organization has decided to empower its growth through an Internet of Things (IoT) solution. What defines success in launching your first solution? You need a reliable partner who will allow to easily pilot and scale your connected devices, manage your resources anywhere – all from one platform.

The potential for widely distributed IoT devices to streamline operations is vast, but so are the security implications. From branch sites and vehicles to M2M and IoT deployments in the wild, IoT is creating the biggest attack surfaces that IT teams have ever seen.
Mirai botnets, WannaCry, and other well-publicized incidents illustrate the breadth of today’s IoT threats, which are too prevalent and advanced to address with traditional security tools. Many organizations are recognizing the need for software-defined, policy-based security solutions that isolate IoT devices and protect organizations' most valuable data — regardless of the WAN source.
What Attendees Will Learn:
— IoT security challenges
— Best practices for mitigating IoT security risks
— How Software-Defined Perimeter technology is changing the way IoT networks are secured
— How to create a perimeter-secured overlay network for IoT devices in about 5 minutes
Who Should Attend:
— Network administrators who need IoT security options that can be deployed and managed from anywhere
— CIOs interested in saving reducing costs, man-hours, and complexities surrounding IoT security
