Wireless Power: Enabling the Future

David Meng, Co-Founder & Chief Technology Officer

Much of the current excitement around wireless power focuses on the freedom that comes with cutting the charging cable from our handheld mobile devices. But the true game-changer may be what it means for enabling the IoT, where nearly every aspect of our environment is a node for a smart, connected and data-driven ecosystem. Continue reading

Should You Take a Ubiquitous or Best-of-Breed Approach to Building an IoT Infrastructure?

Roland Feijoo, Executive Vice President of IOT solutions

Some people subscribe to the best-of-breed philosophy in buying technology products and services: “I’m going to buy a switch here, a router there, a firewall there,” because they believe they’re getting the best products and will therefore build the strongest infrastructure. I was no different until I began designing and deploying Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. I learned the hard way that’s the wrong approach, at least with IoT. Continue reading
