Rick, thanks for the news on this. I suppose the Facebooks and Google's of this world can use this today! I briefly looked at the "typical power consumption of 10 watts per port for a fully loaded chassis" which I assume is the 8-slot 11RU you are referring to in the article.
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.
