If Intel isn't working on adding tablet interfaces to these cloud applications then they are missing a huge bet. The combination of mobility, larger display size, and network orientation make that a natural combination. Use an HTML5 interface for them and you might just have a prototype of the business app platform for the next five years.
The antivirus scan engine can be pushed to hardware level. Yet, firewall will have a little bit difficulty unless it is sitting on the network chip which is sitting at the very front.
If this is what Intel's ambitious, the McAfee deal seems a logical move. Any related articles or press release in this topics are welcomed.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
