物聯網裝置管理趨勢

Having covered the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) concept since it first began appearing several years ago, it’s been intriguing to observe the rise of different trend lines as industry interest becomes more directed and technology suppliers respond. Early on, the biggest trends revolved around the deployment of greater numbers of sensors to gather more data. Then came the increasing focus on data collection and analysis. More recently, the biggest trend lines have focused on edge computing and its role in IIoT versus cloud computing or in hybrid data aggregation/analysis deployments. And don't forget the data communication trends such as OPC UA, MQTT and AQMP. Though the technologies and applications around these trends continue to develop as industry begins deploying increasing numbers of IoT projects, David Greenfield has begun to see another new trend line emerging. This one is focused on device management.

 

At the 2017 IoT Solutions World Congress in Barcelona this fall, David had meetings with two different companies, both of which were promoting the importance of device management to IIoT. Both companies were also quick to point out that the trend has the potential to have the biggest effect on OEMs, in particular.His first meeting was with Wind River about the recent update to its Helix Device Cloud for a variety of device management approaches (read more about the Helix Device Cloud update here). The other meeting was with Jeff Benck, president and CEO, and Shahram Mehraban, vice president of marketing, of Lantronix. At the IoT Solutions World Congress event, Lantronix announced the availability of its Mach10 Global Device Manager. This is “our first IoT management software product offering,” Benck said. “With Global Device Manager, OEMs and systems integrators now have the ability to quickly deliver robust and secure web-scale device management for their IoT devices.”
