IoT has used the pandemic to step on the accelerator, not hit the brakes

Edge computing and artificial intelligence (AI) are enabling richer IoT at the same time as the higher speed connectivity to support data communication and analysis arrives in the form of 5G. It’s an exciting time and all the more exceptional given the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Here Paul Chawla, the chief executive officer of Eurotech, tells IoT Now that IoT organizations, instead of hitting the brakes on their digital transformations, have pressed the accelerator

Below the questions our Paul Chawla answered to:

  • How are you seeing IoT in general recover from the pandemic? What impacts have you seen?
  • Are you noticing a trend towards customers reducing the number of suppliers they use in order to simplify procurement? Are customers seeing the advantages of adopting integrated and open solutions that also reduce the risk of vendor lock-in?
  • Cybersecurity continues to be a prime concern for IoT organizations and as deployments scale, the threat surface enlarges further. Integration of hardware and software components reduces loopholes and weak points for criminals to exploit but how important do you see initiatives such as PSA Level 1 certification in setting a standard for IoT security?
  • Is there greater awareness that having more intelligence in edge devices can be more cost efficient that having to pay for cloud connectivity and resources? Are you seeing companies engage in calculating the balance between more expensive devices versus reduced operating costs?
  • How do you see arrival of highspeed private networks (4G/5G) encouraging increased uptake of IoT? Are applications in need of 5G yet?
  • What plans do you have for the further development of Eurotech?
