IoT education challenges - with Yann Douze, Senior Lecturer at Sorbonne University.

I had an insightful conversation with Yann Douze, a senior lecturer at Sorbonne University and an expert in Embedded Systems, the Internet of Things (IoT), and Micro Electronics. We discussed his background, the evolution of the IoT curriculum, and the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in IoT projects. Yann shared his passion for IoT and emphasized the importance of continuous learning and curiosity in this rapidly evolving field. He highlighted his focus on hands-on projects, particularly communication technologies, low-power systems, and energy harvesting.

MQTT challenges

Introduction MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) is a widely used communication protocol in IoT systems. I typically focus on the advantages, but there are also challenges with its implementation in real-life Internet of Things deployments. Security Lack of Encryption MQTT does not provide encryption, which is a security vulnerability. We must use additional measures such as TLS/SSL to ensure the security and confidentiality of transmitted information. Authentication and Authorization Implementing robust authentication and authorization mechanisms requires in-depth knowledge of other technologies, like X.

Go-To-Market Strategy for IoT Offerings - with Mike Fahrion, Fractional Business and Technology Leader.

Introduction In this conversation with Mike Fahrion we unravel the secrets to successful IoT go-to-market strategies. We discussed the importance of customer-centric approaches, product-market fit, scalability, and the game-changing impact of AI in IoT analytics. Mike raised a crucial point: not only does the technical infrastructure need to scale, but processes within the enterprise must scale to meet variable demand. We elaborated on the risks of being a customer-driven organization and several other topics vital to running a successful IoT business.

Energy Market from an IoT perspective - with Thomas Weisshaupt, Regional Head at Wirepas.

Introduction Modern Energy domain joins adaptive mesh networks, blockchain, and smart devices. We cover several interesting topics during this conversation with Thomas Weisshaupt, Regional Head Energy Market at Wirepas. Thomas explained why focusing on the core competency is crucial as the IoT vendor participating in the intelligent solutions ecosystem. We elaborated on the importance of a business application and suitable technical stack. My guest clarified why decentralized solutions make the energy system more efficient, less expensive, and less vulnerable.

Spacecraft as the ultimate IoT device - with Jim Cantrell, CEO at Phantom Space.

Introduction Space is the ultimate destination for the Internet of Things technology. Satellites are a perfect example of IoT devices operating in hard-to-reach places. Jim Cantrell, the CEO at Phantom Space, shares his 30+ years of experience with me during this discussion. We covered several important topics, including: How has the space industry evolved over the years? What is the concept of software-defined satellites? How can we protect satellites from cyber-attacks?

Mastering the IoT Product Strategy - with Marcello Majonchi, Chief Product Officer at Arduino.

Introduction What are the differences between building an IoT product as an early-stage startup vs. a global enterprise? How do you create an initial customer base? What is the product-market fit, and why is it important? Why should you treat your partners as customers? Three crucial questions for the IoT startup founders to answer before starting their initiative: Why this? Why now? Why you? That is just a small subset of topics covered in this episode.
