The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the set of devices and systems that interconnect real world sensors and actuators to the internet. This includes many different types of systems, including: Mobile devices Smart meters & objects Wearable devices including clothing, health care implants, smartwatches, fitness devices, etc. Internet connected automobiles Home Automation Systems including thermostats, lighting, home security Other measuring sensors for weather, traffic, ocean tides, road signals and more These systems connect to the internet or gateway in a variety of manners including long range WiFi/Ethernet using IP protocols (tcp/udp, including cellular), short range Bluetooth low energy, short range Near Field Communications, or other types of medium range radio networks. Point to point radio links and serial lines are also used. There are many sensors that ... (more)

Our Five Senses on Sensors By @PSilvas | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Aristotle (384 – 322 BC) is credited as the first person to classify our five sense organs: sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing and Immanuel Kant, a famous philosopher from the 1700s said that our knowledge of the outside world depends on our modes of perception. Our highly developed organs of the eyes, ears, nose, tongue and the skin on your hand provide the sensing equipment necessary to send that information to the brain. In some cases, one of the sensors might not work properly in the case of the blind or deaf, yet the four other senses are heightened and exceed normal op... (more)

Innovate, Expand, Deliver with F5 CEO Manny Rivelo By @PSilvas | @CloudExpo #Cloud

F5 President & CEO, Manny Rivelo, shares his vision of Innovate, Expand, Deliver at #F5Agility15. Always insightful, Manny discusses his new role as CEO, what hybrid application services means to organizations, how F5 has evolved from just a load balancing company, how organizations use F5 solutions across hybrid environments and how F5 is all about the software. He also shares some perspective on the new BIG-IP v12 and his favorite part of F5 Agility. Applications without constraints. Thanks Manny! ps Related: F5Agility15 – The Preview Video Welcome to F5 Agility 2015 Innovate... (more)

The IoT Ready Platform By @PSilvas | @ThingsExpo #IoT #API

Over the last couple months, in between some video coverage for events, I’ve been writing a series of IoT stories. From the basic What are These "Things”? and IoT Influence on Society to the descriptive IoT Effect on Applications and the IoT Ready Infrastructure. I thought it only fair to share how F5 can play within an IoT infrastructure. Because F5 application services share a common control plane—the F5 platform—we’ve simplified the process of deploying and optimizing IoT application delivery services. With the elastic power of Software Defined Application Services (SDAS), yo... (more)

Internet of Things Ready Infrastructure By @PSilvas | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

IoT applications will come in all shapes and sizes but no matter the size, availability is paramount to support both customers and the business. The most basic high-availability architecture is the typical three-tier design. A pair of ADCs in the DMZ terminates the connection. They in turn intelligently distribute the client request to a pool (multiple) of IoT application servers which then query the database servers for the appropriate content. Each tier has redundant servers so in the event of a server outage, the others take the load and the system stays available. This is a ... (more)
