Computing at the Edge of IoT – Google Developers – Medium

https://medium.com/google-developers/computing-at-the-edge-of-iot-140a888007b
We’ve seen that demand for low latency, offline access, and enhanced machine learning capabilities is fueling a move towards decentralization with more powerful computing devices at the edge.

Nevertheless, many distributed applications benefit more from a centralized architecture and the lowest cost hardware powered by MCUs.

Let’s examine how hardware choice and use case requirements factor into different IoT system architectures.

    Revolutionize Remote Wireless Monitoring with AI and High-Energy Lithium Batteries
    Sept. 10, 2021
    With our nation’s hard infrastructure, there’s a growing need for battery-powered, AI-enabled remote wireless devices that communicate bidirectionally, helping decision makers apply resources more strategically to repair and maintain these assets.
    https://www.electronicdesign.com/industrial-automation/article/21174995/ayyeka-technologies-revolutionize-remote-wireless-monitoring-with-ai-and-highenergy-lithium-batteries?utm_source=EG%20ED%20IoT%20for%20Engineers&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=CPS210908124&o_eid=7211D2691390C9R&rdx.ident%5Bpull%5D=omeda%7C7211D2691390C9R&oly_enc_id=7211D2691390C9R

    What you’ll learn:

    Our nation’s aging infrastructure requires the implementation of Infrastructure 4.0 to better manage and maintain these valuable assets.
    Remote wireless devices are being used to improve management and maintenance of hard infrastructure to provide greater insight enhanced by AI.
    Ideally, low-power wireless devices deployed throughout hard infrastructure need highly energetic batteries capable of supporting bidirectional communications necessary to provide actionable real-time data to better manage and maintain these assets.
    Bobbin-type LiSOCl2 batteries deliver high capacity, high energy density, an extended temperature range, and very low annual self-discharge rate, suiting them for long-term deployments in harsh environments.

    IoT and Edge Computing Challenges

    Operational: According to the Eclipse Foundation, enterprises’ largest operational challenges when it comes to IoT and edge tech are end-to-end IoT solution monitoring and management; device management; and network, devices, and data security.

    Security: These technologies help unify business processes, but a proliferation of IoT devices also leads to security challenges. For example, many of these devices don’t support WPA2-Enterprise, which is considered the leading option for Wi-Fi network security. Furthermore, different edge devices will have different built-in authentication and security capabilities. To alleviate any cyberattack possibilities, businesses should pursue complete network visibility, and plan to both certify all connected devices before they can connect and determine how to isolate or segment different groups of devices.
    Privacy: Companies must ensure the privacy of individuals, as well as that of the business, when collecting data. With more and more IoT devices entering the scene, some of which may connect to individual laptops or tablets, or even people themselves, companies must make sure that their privacy practices evolve equally as fast as device adoption.
    Geographic: While edge-computing platforms can be beneficial for remote sites that would otherwise spend lots of time and money sending data back and forth to distant cloud systems, companies might find managing these systems challenging if there aren’t IT teams onsite, and if there’s no remote way to monitor the platform.
    Potential loss of data: Edge platforms can discard any data considered useless, rather than taking the time and energy to send all processed data to a cloud storage center. This could, in the long run, mean that a company doesn’t have access to data that has suddenly moved from useless to useful.

    VxRail Satellite Nodes

    VxRail is the world’s market leading hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). With research firm IDC estimating that 50 percent of new IT infrastructure will be deployed at the edge by 2023, Dell is looking to make VxRail broadly available in all forms with the launch of its new VxRail satellite nodes.

    The new Dell EMC satellite nodes bring VxRail’s operational model and efficiencies to edge sites with a reduced infrastructure footprint. As the only HCI solution jointly engineered with VMware, VxRail satellite node single-node deployments automate day-to-day operations, health monitoring and lifecycle management from a centralized location without the need for local technical and specialized resources. Dell says business verticals including retail, manufacturing and remote branch offices can now get started with VxRail for less.

    The new VxRail satellite nodes extend automation and lifecycle management capabilities to Dell’s smallest configuration to date for edge workloads.
