Register for the webcast at: http://www.prismtech.com/webcast-signup * Understand the most common security requirements of IIoT Systems * Learn about some of the canonical security system architectures * Understand how Vortex can help with security implementation in IIoT systems Abstract: Whilst everyone agrees on the importance of security in the Internet of Things (IoT), reports such as HP's Fortify IoT Security Report continue to highlight how it is not so uncommon to see even the most basic security considerations being ignored. If the impact of limited security would only be rotten tomatoes in your smart refrigerator, then whilst annoying the consequences would not be so damaging. However, as the IoT expands into the industrial sector, the lack of security can potentially have a devastating impact. In this webcast we will introduce key security requirements for IoT systems and outline some of the canonical architectures that can be used to secure systems. Finally we will show how PrismTech’s Vortex platform supports some of these security architectures.

  4. Register for the Webcast at: http://www.prismtech.com/webcast-signup Why Attend: * Understand the importance of Data Modeling and taxonomies for the Internet of Things (IoT) * Learn the key techniques for effective and extensible Data Models Design * Learn about the most common Data Distribution Service (DDS) Data Modeling Idioms Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) is about extracting and leveraging the tactical and strategic value of data. To do so it is essential that the sub-systems cooperating toward this goal agree on the meaning of data, and can share a “uniform” or at least an “equivalent” representation of data. Without a shared and agreed data model any IoT application quickly becomes an integration bazaar doomed to implode under the weight of layers of translations. Additionally, data models, and in general data-centric architectures, provide a more stable abstraction-barrier than service APIs and service-oriented architectures – the failure of traditional Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) in favor of Resource-Oriented architectures is yet another example of this. Thus, for “data-intensive” systems that are expected to have a long life-cycle, and that require interoperability, such as IoT applications, data-centric architectures are the most natural choice. The Data Distribution Service (DDS), is used as the data-management infrastructure at the foundation of many IoT applications, such as Smart Grids, Smart Transportation, Connected Vehicles and Smart Agriculture. One of the differentiating characteristics of DDS is its support for data- and resource-centric architectures. This webcast will (1) explain the role and scope of data modeling in IoT – with references to the Reference Architecture Model Industrie 4.0 (RAMI 4.0) and the Industrial Internet Reference Architecture (IIRA), (2) introduce the techniques at the foundation of effective and extensible Data Models, and (3) explain how to design effective Data Models for systems powered by DDS.

  6. PrismTech’s Vortex Enables TechOcean’s Internet of Robots Prototyping Modules http://www.prismtech.com/news/prismtech-vortex-enables-techocean-internet-robots-prototyping-modules Vortex, based on the DDS standard, provides platform and programming language independent real-time communications between modules Boston, MA, USA – August 22, 2016 – PrismTech, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems, today announced that its award-winning Vortex intelligent data sharing platform has been selected by TechOcean for its Internet of Robots modules, a system that will accelerate prototyping and implementation of robotics and automation applications. Currently in robotic systems one of the main inhibitors to rapid prototyping is the lack of standardized interfaces between components. This means that integration of a system’s components is often a significant and costly task. Integration of different types of components also demands that a user has specialist (expanded) knowledge and experience in electronics, software and communications technologies. Polish based startup, TechOcean, an automation and robotics specialist focusing on the Internet of Things (IoT) for Robotics is now addressing this market need. Its goal is to allow robotic systems to be built more quickly, easily and efficiently. TechOcean’s Internet of Robots is a new distributed system of modules which accelerate the prototyping and implementation of robotics and automation applications. Internet of Robots modules control the internet, electronics, software and hardware of a robot. They allow the sending of data, engine control, management of environmental data and the ability to actually see what your robot sees. Typical users of the Internet of Robots are professional robotics and automation solutions integrators, robotics labs in academic institutions and robotics enthusiasts. A key requirement for the Internet of Robots is that communication between the modules is fast, reliable, real-time and will not be limited to one programming language, operating system or specific hardware. After a market assessment of best of breed communication technologies, TechOcean chose PrismTech’s Vortex for this task. Vortex enables real-time data sharing for devices and machines based on the Object Management Group™'s (OMG™) Data Distribution Service for Real-Time Systems (DDS) standard.

  10. Register at: http://www.prismtech.com/webcast-signup The Cloudy, Foggy and Misty Internet of Things - Towards Fluid IoT Architectures Webcast Why Attend: * Understand the differences between Cloud, Fog and Mist Computing * Learn about the new concept of Fluid Architectures * Learn how to build IoT systems that are fluid and can exploit the benefits of Cloud, Fog and Mist computing Abstract: Early Internet of Things (IoT) applications have been built around cloud-centric architectures where information generated at the edge by the "things" is conveyed and processed in a cloud infrastructure. These architectures centralize processing and decision making at the datacenter by assuming sufficient connectivity, bandwidth and latency. As application of the IoT extends to industrial and more demanding consumer applications, the assumptions underlying cloud-centric architectures start to be violated as, - for many of these applications - connectivity, bandwidth and latency to the datacenter are a challenge. Fog and Mist computing have emerged as forms of "Cloud Computing" closer to the "Edge" and to the "Things" that should alleviate the connectivity, bandwidth and latency challenges faced by Industrial and extremely demanding consumer IoT applications. This Webcast, will (1) introduce Cloud, Fog and Mist Computing architectures for the Internet of Things, (2) explain their applicability with real-world use cases, and (3) introduce the concept of fluid IoT architectures and explain how these can be architected and built using PrismTech’s Vortex platform. The webcast will last approximately one hour.

Register at: http://www.prismtech.com/webcast-signup Why Attend: * Learn how companies are today using the Vortex IoT Data Sharing Platform to build autonomous and connected vehicle systems, * Understand the common data sharing requirements for autonomous and connected vehicles, * Learn about Vortex's features that make it ideal for connected and autonomous vehicles. Abstract: Although Autonomous and connected vehicles may sound somewhat futuristic applications of the Internet of Things (IoT), the reality is that these systems are being built and operated today in special environments. The design of these systems pose some unique challenges due to the constraints imposed by the criticality of the applications and the heterogeneity of the deployment environments. To put it another way, autonomous connected vehicles should not crash into each other, nor into other vehicles, whilst at the same time have to deal with connectivity that changes depending on their location, e.g. connectivity in down-town San Francisco may not be the same as the connectivity experience in the Joshua Tree National Park. This webcast will (1) showcase how PrismTech's Vortex Data Sharing Platform based on the Object Management Group's Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard is used today as the foundation of several autonomous and connected vehicles, (2) summarize the key requirements characteristic of these types of application, and (3) introduce the Vortex features that make it a perfect match for connectivity in autonomous and connected vehicle platforms and applications. The webcast will last approximately one hour.

Register at: http://www.prismtech.com/events/iot-protocols-integration-vortex-gateway-live-webcast Why Attend: * Understand the common requirements posed by Brown-Field Internet of Things (IoT) applications, * Learn how PrismTech's Vortex Gateway can help easily bridge across protocols and data stores, * Understand how PrismTech's Vortex Gateway can be leveraged in the Platform to quickly provide IoT capabilities to brown field applications. Abstract: Not all Consumer and Industrial Internet of Things (CIoT, IIoT) applications have the luxury of starting with a blank sheet of paper for designing the system from ground-up. Often IoT features have to be built around existing systems designed using proprietary technologies or vertical standards. As a consequence the ability to easily integrate communication standards, proprietary protocols and data stores is key in accelerating the development of IoT capabilities. This webcast will showcase how PrismTech's Vortex Gateway can be used to easily integrate different communication standards / data stores and demonstrate how to quickly develop connectors for proprietary technologies.
