The Wi-Fi alliance has changed the naming scheme for Wi-Fi standards, abandoning the 802.11 designations for simpler names like Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 5, Wi-Fi 4, etc., but that may gloss over some of the finer points of the old IEEE system.

Cisco’s Chuck Byers, a veteran of Bell Labs and a prominent member of the OpenFog Consortium, lays out the way you should be thinking about designing your fog computing deployment.
Computing icon and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak touched on a wide range of topics in a discussion with the audience at the 2018 Fog World Congress, in which he expressed his hope that AI and IoT could allow computers to help improve people’s lives.
An executive from fog computing startup Nebbiolo Technologies walks us through an example of how aging IIoT systems can be brought up-to-date.
A Duke University-based academic’s work on AR has its roots in a deep understanding of fog, edge, and cloud architecture.
Our monthly roundup of IoT news includes a proposed ban on default passwords for connected devices, IoT-specific carrier services and a chip set that could underpin more powerful yet inexpensive IoT endpoints.
Security around IoT, and around industrial IoT in particular, is becoming a critical concern for businesses that might not be used to dealing with a new generation of cybersecurity threats. The use of edge architectures offers a great deal of promise in addressing those threats, but it’s not a drop-in solution to such problems.
Data gathered by traditional building systems goes overlooked because it is formats aren’t compatible with data formats used by newer IoT devices, slowing the advance of smart cities.
Most IoT devices lack the computational power to carry out the level of machine learning necessary in truly smart IoT deployments, but they can act on the lessons machine-learning provides.
A roundup of recent IoT news from to keep you in the loop.
Researchers at the Medical PnP laboratory are looking to save lives through smarter, more interoperable healthcare technology using open standards, medical expertise and testing equipment that simulates health conditions to encourage easier integration of IoT devices and new sharing apps that can expand their capabilities.
Arm's new Pelion IoT Platform software handles management of devices, data and connectivity for corporate internet of things deployments.
Google announced a chip and edge software that could transform the enterprise IoT landscape.
Enterprise IT departments are seeing odd echoes of the problems they faced during the early BYOD era in the entrance of IoT technology into the enterprise, where one of the principal threats is the use of consumer-grade (read: insecure) IoT gizmos on corporate networks.
The smart city of the future is a much-ballyhooed use case for IoT technology. But a new report from a consortium organized by researchers at Georgia Tech dives deeper into the specifics of business models and use cases for IoT.
