Imagine we are living in a smart community where city assets and community infrastructures are interconnected by IoT and cloud. The citizens can access to public resources, for example, buses, utility information, libraries, parking and traffic conditions, anytime and anywhere from where they are through wireless network. We will enjoy a high quality of life while significantly saving massive amount of energy and costs. Indeed, this ultimate goal requires multiple levels of technologies to achieve the efficiency we need.
Practical implementations of Lanner's technology in a range of environments and applications.
Today’s enterprises are highly driven by cloud computing, cloud storage and mobile services in order to stay competitive in the market. However, this attracts more and more advanced cyber attacks to get through the network protocols. According to official reports, around 80% of organizations have experienced data breaches, no matter the scale and size of the institutes. In other words, even small and medium sized organizations are also at risks. In fact, the issue is occurring more frequently as more and more companies and government offices are targeted for spear phishing, malware, ransomware and other types of hacks.
From connected air conditioners to smart light bulbs and door locks, the home/room automation technology has been adopted not only at home, but also in the rooms of some of the most prestigious hotels and luxurious villas, giving guests complete control over almost every in-room appliance with the touch of a finger and therefore providing customers with premium experience and ultimate convenience.
Software-defined wide area network refers to WAN connections built and provisioned using software-defined networking (SDN) technology instead of proprietary hardware. Such virtualized WAN connections are intended for establishing highly agile and manageable enterprise networks at the compute and application tiers, between corporate HQs and branch offices or between data centers spanning large geographic distances.
Since the trend of IoT (Internet of Things), energy sectors all over the world have been frequently the main targets for deliberate malware as consequences of planned attacks can highly devastate reliability, serviceability and public trust. One of the recent incidents was the power cut during Christmas season in Ukraine, 2015, followed by a series of cyber attacks to local energy companies. Large parts of the state were under power black-out. This incident revealed that ICS systems today are practically vulnerable to deliberate attacks.
Due to the rising awareness of environmental friendliness, more and more people are taking metro transportations such as subway and mass rapid transit as their primary commuting option. As people are spending more time on trains, and, with the popularity of smart mobile devices, they would like to maximize their time efficiency during their traveling time. Therefore, managements of rolling stock organizations are taking onboard Wi-Fi service into consideration. Regarding signal reliability and rolling stock environment, the most convenient solution is to implement an onboard gateway with wireless network connectivity and processing capability rather than installing a local Wi-Fi network or a satellite-based system. The onboard gateway will act as the Wi-Fi hot spot, so that passengers will have the access while spending time in the trains.
