The global energy industry, encompassing oil & gas, solar energy, wind energy, etc. is going through tectonic shifts, confirms McKinsey. One of the major contributors to this shift is technological developments, such as digital transformation and digitalization initiatives, which revolutionize

Why the manufacturing industry needs communication standards The digital transformation has been underway on factory floors for some time now. As digital technologies emerges as a key factor for remaining competitive, the need for change gains focus. The sheer complexity of

IIoT is driving the manufacturing industry to modernize its software infrastructure. Whether you call it Industry 4.0 or the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), manufacturing is in the midst of a significant transformation. A key motivation in this push to

Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication protocols, which enable machines to “talk” with one another so that commands are communicated and data is transmitted, are indispensable to applications and systems that make use of the internet of things (IoT) and the industrial internet of things (IIoT). Message Queuing

In this article we discuss how insecure deployments and the lack of well-defined security in M2M technology can be abused to turn into unforeseen problems in critical and large-scale environments like smart factories and cities. M2M technology forms the core of

In our latest research paper, titled “The Fragility of Industrial IoT’s Data Backbone: Security and Privacy Issues in MQTT and CoAP Protocols” and written with Rainer Vosseler and Davide Quarta, we discussed how MQTT and CoAP are affected by design

MQTT, a light-weight IoT messaging protocol over TCP/IP, is designed for large-scale telemetry environments with remote locations where a small code footprint is required and/or network bandwidth is limited.  It operates as a producer-consumer paradigm, where many “Publishers” (for example,
