REDtone optimistic on Internet of Things

Posted on 5 August 2015 - 05:40am KUALA LUMPUR: REDtone International Bhd, which has launched its first Internet of Things (IoT) application for smart city called CitiAct, expects IoT services to contribute at least 5% of its profit in three years. Managing director Datuk Wei Chuan Beng said there is good growth potential for IoT services with the growing usage of IoT devices such as smartphones among Malaysians. IoT is the network of physical objects or "things" embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and connectivity to enable objects to exchange data with the manufacturer, operator and other connected devices. IoT offerings are part of REDtone's latest managed value-added services that will provide new revenue streams for the company in the financial year ending May 31, 2016 (FY16).

REDtone's managed value-added services include data centre services, IoT solutions, cloud services and applications and healthcare solutions to enterprises, government and healthcare industry. "IoT is going to be a business that will last the next 10 years and this is just the beginning. With the launch of CitiAct and CitiSense, and subsequently additional modules, we believe in the next three years, it will be a significant contribution to Redtone's revenue," Wei told a media briefing after launching the app here yesterday. He said the integrated telecommunications solutions provider has been preparing for IoT for the last two years and has plans to introduce more IoT applications in the future. It also intends to extend the application to neighbouring countries in Asean within a year, and that this is an area of business where it owns the full intellectual property as it has developed the entire platform, application and services. "The neighbouring Asean countries will be our immediate target. We seek the opportunity through trade shows and exhibitions and from there, I believe we can draw more and more leads from the regional market," said Wei.

IEEE IoT Newsletter - July 2015

Internet of Things connectivity is often discussed in the context of the 4G to 5G transition including the spectrum and standards requirements needed to achieve an order of magnitude reduction in connectivity cost and an order of magnitude decrease in connectivity energy consumption. There is a persuasive argument that this could be accomplished by repurposing GSM spectrum at 850 and 900 MHz, subdividing existing GSM 200 kHz channels into narrow band carriers that could support low data rate long range low cost connectivity.

Connected: the Internet of Things takes hold in trucking

The Internet of Things (IOT) has a different meaning depending on your vantage point. As a consumer, the things could be phones, Fitbits, smart clothing, cars, home appliances and other devices that share a common network and Internet connection. As a fleet owner, manager or driver, the things could be electronic logs, video event recorders, collision warning systems, electronic control modules, vehicle sensors and other devices connected to a vehicles network or mobile computing platform. In the consumer world, thousands of devices and applications are compatible straight from the box and the App Store or Google Play. The same is not true for trucking technology. A collision warning system, for instance, cannot be integrated with a telematics system at the push of a button like pairing a Fitbit with a smartphone. But the trends are moving in that direction. For starters, technology companies are finding ways to get fleets upgraded to their latest things. Heniff Transportation Systems recently outfitted its fleet with a new trailer tracking system by SkyBitz through a monthly subscription service that includes its Falcon series hardware, integration with back-office software, onboarding support, and real-time reporting and analysis tools.

Related Changing directions: Consumer platforms reshaping in-cab computing A wide gulf used to separate consumer and enterprise mobile computing. While consumer electronics always have been on the leading edge of technology, they traditionally ... Heniff is using SkyBitz in a lot of different ways, says Justin Neal, director of business integration for the Oak Brook, Ill.-based company. As one example, Heniff has a portal that customers use to see the real-time status of loads. The estimated time of arrival for each load is displayed next to a visual stoplight that turns green if a load is on-time or red if it is running late. As for compatibility between various devices and applications, the Internet of Transportation Things (IOTT) is taking shape as more companies convert to consumer-style platforms like Android. This makes it easier for fleets to bring on new apps that more easily integrate with others in the vehicle and back office. In some cases, in-cab computers have become mobile hotspots that connect various devices, sensors and third-party systems to the Internet through a single gateway. In this three-part series on the Internet of Transportation Things, CCJ begins by taking a closer look at how the concept applies to the the electronics of modern trucks.

Why the Internet of Things Is Big Business

For those outside Silicon Valley, the Internet of Things is a buzzword often associated with seemingly superfluous toys for early-adopting consumers: the expensive Apple watch, the oft-ridiculed Google Glass, or a smart refrigerator that senses when the milk jug is empty. So when Sarnoff professor of business administration Marco Iansiti began looking at how businesses have been transformed by the growing number of everyday objects connected to the Web, the first questioned he asked was: Is the hype real? For Iansiti and associate professor of business administration Karim R. Lakhani, the answer is an unequivocal yes. We have entered an age of Digital Ubiquity, they wrote in Harvard Business Review (HBR) last fall. Sensors in gadgets, appliances, and machines generate an unprecedented and growing volume of data that is increasingly easy to share wirelessly. The ability to aggregate and analyze these data at a massive scale, the authors argue, has begun to change the very nature of how businesses create value and make money in nearly every industry. The researchers point to recent efforts at General Electric that have turned the century-old company into an unexpected digital-transition success story. In the last few years, GE and other electronics companies have seen exponential growth in the volume, velocity, and variety of data that they collect, Lakhani explains, forcing companies that did not think that they were in the software business to become good at software development.

The industrial internet is the term GE executives have coined to refer to these digital integration efforts. The corporations new approach to selling wind turbines exemplifies the opportunities and challenges that this connected future presents. Before the world went digital, the easiest way for GE to add value to a customers wind farm was to sell it more turbines. Now sensors wirelessly transmit data on performance and maintenance back to GE, which can replace worn-out parts before they break and adjust controls for torque, pitch, and speed in real time. By keeping the turbines running more efficiently, GE has created worth without selling more productsand a new price model allows the company to capture part of this value. Rather than charging for the turbine alone, the sales force can quantify the wind farms data-driven savings and charge a fee based on the value of that optimization. These new ways of creating and capturing value have gone hand in hand with fundamental changes in GEs operations. The company has invested billions in GE Software, and retrained its sales force to focus on long-term contracts and pay-for-performance.

11.4 million wearables shipped globally in Q1 2015: IDC

Wearables market grows as price drops; Fitbit leads
Image 01

Wearable devices such as Fitbit and Jawbone scored their eighth-straight quarter of growth as more consumers become eager to track their daily activities, whether its how well they sleep or how many calories they burn. Research firm IDC reported on Wednesday that, during the first quarter of the year, a total of 11.4 million wearable devices shipped around the world, triple the 3.8 million shipped during the same quarter in 2014.

Wearable devices such as Fitbit and Jawbone scored their eighth-straight quarter of growth as more consumers become eager to track their daily activities, whether its how well they sleep or how many calories they burn. Research firm IDC reported on Wednesday that, during the first quarter of the year, a total of 11.4 million wearable devices shipped around the world, triple the 3.8 million shipped during the same quarter in 2014. The second quarter is bound to show an even more significant jump, as it will include shipments of the Apple Watch, which became available to consumers early April. To be sure, demand for wearables is on the rise among consumers outside of the tech world and in emerging markets, as easy-to-use devices like the Fitbit which has the dominant market share have become popular gifts and accessories. But IDC attributed the latest surge in growth in part to lower prices. As with any young market, price erosion has been quite drastic, Jitesh Ubrani, senior research analyst for IDC Worldwide Mobile Device Trackers, said in a news release. We now see over 40 percent of the devices priced under $100, and thats one reason why the top five vendors have been able to grow their dominance from two-thirds of the market in the first quarter of last year to three-quarters this quarter. The Apple Watch is an exception to the lower-price trend. The Watch starts at $349 and goes up to about $17,000 for top-of-the-line models. Leading the way is Fitbit, which has 34 percent of the wearables market, according to IDC. Thats a slight dip from last years 45 percent, but more competitors have entered the market since. Fitbit shipments grew a whopping 129 percent from 1.7 million in the first quarter of 2014 to 3.9 million in the first quarter of this year. Fitbit will soon be the first wearables company to go public, with an initial public offering expected within two weeks. And it is expected to be a monster IPO the company on Tuesday said it will seek $14 to $16 apiece for nearly 30 million shares; at the top end of that range, Fitbits IPO would take in $477.6 million at a valuation of $3.28 billion. That would make Fitbit a larger deal than both GoPro, the second-largest consumer electronics debut, and Duracell, the largest deal of its kind. GoPro raised $427.2 million in its debut in June 2014, and Duracell raised $433 million in 1991, according to Dealogic.

Fitness Bands Lead Wearables During First Quarter

Smartwatches account for only one quarter of wearables shipped during the first three months of the year, according to IDC. Can the Apple Watch change that?

Wearables marked their eighth consecutive quarter of growth during the first three months of the year, with fitness bands and other simple wearables leading the way. Smartwatches account for at most 25% of wearable shipments. Will the Apple Watch change that? Wearable makers shipped 11.4 million devices during the first quarter, according to IDC. That number reflects a 200% increase from the 3.8 million devices shipping during the same period in 2014. Fitbit ranked as the number one wearable maker by volume. It shipped 3.9 million devices, giving it 34.2% of the market. Xiaomi followed with 2.8 million devices and 26.4% of the market. Garmin rounds out the top three with 700,000 devices and 6.1% of the market. All three companies make low-cost devices (~$100) meant to help track health and fitness.

Who Needs Drones When Amazon Could 3-D Print Your Goods From a Van Parked Outside Your Home?

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos once predicted that the 3-D printing revolution wouldnt take off any time soon, only far, far in the future. He also said that you cant build interesting objects with 3-D printers. That was two years ago. Today, in a world where we can 3-D print everything from replacement windpipes to entire houses, it looks like hes changed his mind. 3Dprint.com broke the news this week that Amazon recently filed several patent applications for mobile 3-D printing delivery trucks. The filing hints at a future in which the worlds largest e-tailer quickly prints products on-demand, yes, from a van parked somewhere in the vicinity of the purchasers home or office. Suddenly, 30-minute drone delivery doesnt seem so cool.

From Eye Shadow to Entire Houses: 7 of the Craziest 3-D Printed Creations Yet

he benefits of adopting an innovative mobile manufacturing hubs network would be mainly two-fold for Amazon, as laid out in the patent filing. The proposed system would decrease the amount of warehouse or inventory storage space needed and reduce the amount of time consumed between receiving an order and delivering the item to the customer... It would also presumably save the Seattle-based company a considerable amount of time and money on several fronts.

he filing marks Amazons latest stab at speeding up the shipping process. In 2014, the ecommerce giant won patent approval for anticipatory delivery, a scheme that would allow it to funnel items to shipping centers based on shoppers' earlier purchases and searches. Basically, as pointed out in the Wall Street Journal yesterday, Amazon thinks it knows customers so well it can guess what theyll need before the customers themselves do. Related: Industry Lobbyists Take Aim at Proposed FAA Drone Rules In late 2013, Bezos revealed Amazon Prime Air, an ambitious GPS-guided future delivery drone system designed to ferry packages weighing up to 5 pounds and travel within a 10-mile radius. Now that the FAAs new proposed drone rules threaten to ground Amazons drone delivery dreams, perhaps curbside 3-D product printing will have to do, that is if it even becomes a reality. Remember, a patent filing does not a product or service make.

internet of Things: Risk and Value Considerations

The Internet of Things (IoT) revolution has the potential to be staggeringly transformational and, at the same time, highly disruptive to business. Business value and organizational competitiveness can be derived as enterprises capitalize on these new capabilities to gain more and better business value from IoT devices. With that additional value comes additional risk or, at least, new avenues of risk. Devices with "always on" network connectivity are enabling new types of attacks that have not been seen in the past; these devices represent a new set of targets for potential data exposure and crime. It is imperative that assurance, security and governance professionals take notice of the IoT trend, because it has the potential to redefine the risk equation within many enterprises.
