Internet of Trusted Things (IoTT)
As a growing range of industry segments are embracing the power of IoT, the need for trusted identities will increase. This will be decisive for real-time location systems and proof of presence solutions where the identity of people or things in a physical space is crucial. The time has come for the Internet of Trusted Things (IoTT).
“HID Global has forecasted top trends for 2017 based on our broad view of the market in close collaboration with customers and partners who are assessing and deploying innovative solutions across markets worldwide”, says Stefan Widing, HID Global President and CEO.
We have recently covered Trusted identities for mobile devices and smart cards and the Greater emphasis on the cloud for digital IDs. This time we dive into the Internet of Trusted Things.
Connecting more people, places and things
Organizations will look towards streamlining processes and operations using real-time location systems, presence- and proximity-based location functionality, condition monitoring solutions, beacons and cloud-based models for emerging IoT applications using Bluetooth Low Energy.
Manage environmental conditions, book meeting rooms and auto-configure alarms
These applications will include a growing number of energy efficient, productivity and safety-oriented use cases that will need to know the identity of occupants in a physical space to manage environmental conditions, book meeting rooms and auto-configure audio visual equipment and alarms.
Bluetooth Low Energy-based solutions will also advance existing secure proof of presence capabilities to include the predictive analytics and functionality based on location-based technologies.
