The platform can scale to thousands of locations while offering a comprehensive toolkit for building IoT solutions. See the posting here.
Set in remote, hard-to-reach areas, unmanned Edge data centers are mostly operated with software solutions – including IoT platforms, which enable remote management, triage, and monitoring of the sites. This is an ideal scenario to maintain operations amid disasters, or as proven during the current pandemic crisis. Read the entire article here.
As with all critical industries worldwide, the pandemic has disrupted the oil and gas industries beyond just sinking prices. To maintain social distancing guidelines and prevent COVID-19 spread, the global oil and gas industry took the biggest hit as companies either stopped or slowed down physical operations. This affected production in both upstream and downstream operations, reports Research and Markets. Read the entire article here.
Buildings account for about 40 percent of total energy consumption, and nearly 40 percent of all carbon dioxide output nationwide–according to Alliance to Save Energy and EESI. To maintain energy efficiency levels, a growing number of municipalities are requiring some level of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for new and renovated buildings that supplement a growing list of sustainability initiatives from states.
