From monitoring the energy efficiency of our homes to finding more productive ways to feed the global population, harnessing these connected “things” and turning massive amounts of raw data into actionable insights will have a transformative impact on society. However, both technical and business challenges are slowing IoT adoption. Decision makers within companies are trying to gain a better grasp of expected ROI, cost, and scalability, while IT managers struggle with integration, Interoperability, management, and the need to tailor to specific verticals.
Intel is addressing these challenges by offering open and scalable products, fostering a thriving ecosystem, and showing what is possible with pilots and use cases that demonstrate the potential value and ease of deployment. Intel offers a comprehensive portfolio of end-to-end hardware and software with built-in security.
To make IoT simpler to deploy and scale across applications quickly, Intel offer the Intel IoT Platform, a design blueprint that details how to securely connect and manage a fleet of “things” from small sensors to huge server farms that make up the cloud, while using various analytics tools and technologies along the way.

- CASE STUDIES
Intel: Taking Oil and Gas Exploration to the Next LevelDownUnder GeoSolutions (DUG) wanted to increase computing performance by 5 to 10 times to improve seismic processing. The solution must build on current architecture software investments without sacrificing existing software and scale computing without scaling IT infrastructure costs.Intel: Wearables for Connected WorkersTogether, Honeywell and Intel have developed a IoT proof of concept (PoC) for the Connected Worker. The Connected Worker can take many forms - factory laborer, mine worker, first responder, firefighters and more. For each environment and worker role, a different selection of sensors may be appropriate to provide the most meaningful IoT-fueled dataset to represent that individual worker asset. As with most IoT solutions, it is critical to avoid being overwhelmed by a steady stream of meaningless data. Rather, it is essential to send select actionable intelligence to the cloud for visualization and customized alert notifications. The downside is that data from individual wearable devices - if viewed independently - can potentially cause false alarms and contribute to inefficiencies in a manpower as a result. Fusing sensor technology with big data processing (hub/gateway), analytics - all in the cloud - is the key to improving local intelligence as well as remote visualization of actionable intelligence.Intel: Improving Vending Machine Profitability with the Internet of Things (IoT)The vending industry is undergoing a sea change, taking advantage of new technologies to go beyond just delivering snacks to creating a new retail location. Intelligent vending machines can be found in many public locations as well as company facilities, selling different types of goods and services, including even computer accessories, gold bars, tickets, and office supplies. With increasing sophistication, they may also provide time- and location-based data pertaining to sales, inventory, and customer preferences. But at the end of the day, vending machine operators know greater profitability is driven by higher sales and lower operating costs.
Intel: LIQDThe Intel® LTE IOT Quick Deployment (Intel® LIQD) Program is an initiative designed for LTE network operators to enable their enterprise customers to rapidly deploy IoT platform services and devices at scale. The XPi has a processor, a communications module and sensors all rolled into one. The sensors can be configured to measure a wide range of variables including temperature, humidity, acceleration, ambient light intensity, atmospheric pressure and coordinates. In addition, there will also be an expansion slot for additional sensors or components that allows for customization based on customer requirements. The XPi board is housed in Sonim Technologies' ultra-rugged IP65-rated design which ensures that the device can survive the most demanding of industrial environments in transportation, logistics, agriclture and construction applications. This first board will use LTE Category 1, a low-power protocol for IoT that’s capped at 10Mbps (bit-per-second) downloads and 5Mbps uploads.Intel: Xeon Phi ProcessorIntel Xeon Phi coprocessors are PCI Express form factor add-in cards that work synergistically with Intel Xeon processors to enable dramatic performance gains for highly parallel code―up to 1.2 double-precision teraFLOPS (floating point operations per second) per coprocessor.Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors provide up to 61 cores, 244 threads, and 1.2 teraflops of performance, and they come in a variety of configurations to address diverse hardware, software, workload, performance, and efficiency requirements. They also come in a variety of form factors, including a standard PCIe* x16 form factor (with active, passive, or no thermal solution), and a dense form factor that offers additional design flexibility.Intel: Logic and Timing MiscMultiplexer 68-Pin MLC
