How To Save Cellular IoT From Itself

wires

Wireless carriers like to hype new data capabilities If you know technologies like WiMax or CDPD, you know how the cellular industry can overpromise And if you are working in the IoT, you are probably hearing industry propaganda about their upcoming “low power wide area networking” (LPWAN) IoT technologies LTE Cat M1 (especially in the USA) and LTE NB-IoT (Europe and elsewhere)

I ran across an analyst piece on the future of LPWAN’s and it does a better-than-average job of providing some realism about the future of the cellular industry’s best hope at penetrating the LPWAN space: NB-IoT

LTE is a notoriously expensive and battery-unfriendly technology that may be OK for certain “M2M” IoT applications where mains power is available, but for

Thoughts on an IoT blind spot
Two IoT Arenas

Companies competing to sell you their wireless IoT connectivity technology can be thought of as competing in one of two separate “arenas”: an indoor arena or an outdoor arena
The indoor arena is typically dominated by low power, local area networking (LPLAN) technologies focusing on home automation ZigBee, Z-Wave, and Control4 are well known examples Use

A Simple Proposal on Security

nk-military-computers

Something we occasionally talk about regarding Haystack and DASH7 is the strength of our security and privacy story, which at its foundation includes something called “listen-before-talk”, meaning endpoints using our technology remain quiet until they are interrogated by an authorized user or until an event occurs that sparks a message to the network Sounds like a “duh” feature that

We received quite a lot of positive feedback from our presentation on Low Power Wide Area Networks and today published a follow-up piece that explores our technology in greater detail from the perspective of real-time networking Very briefly, many wireless IoT technologies are limited to some form of “beaconing” and are otherwise not very good at supporting queries in real-time This creates
