5G is emerging. Industrial IoT is growing. Everyone has heard the phrase, it’s the next ‘big thing’. It’s faster internet, but what does it really mean for you? Our recent Not Just Another G blog series will help you understand exactly what 5G means.This blog will focus on a popular 5G application and use case: Industrial IoT (“Internet Of Things”). Consumers use of IoT has exploded in recent years – much to the extent that now, most folks using IoT don’t even realize they are utilizing it. It’s their smartwatch. Their smart meter. Their smart thermostat. All these ‘smart things’ that are saving our planet for future generations are actually part of IoT.Industrial IoT is much less talked about, because it’s much less seen by the public at large. Yet, it is everywhere around us. It is in roadside monitoring equipment. It is in our power distribution networks. It is in the drilling equipment that produces energy wealth booms for nations. It is in nuclear and hydel-power generation stations. It is in the planes that zip us around the world. It is submarines that let our armies protect us, unbeknownst to the enemy. Industrial IoT devices are everywhere, and they are constantly working to meet the lifestyle demands of the human race.What is it about 5G and industrial IoT?The scale and the complexity of existing and future industrial IoT applications is expected to rise significantly. Current connectivity methods are going to be inadequate for future IoT applications. The promise of 5G, with its mMTC (massive machine-type communication), and URLLC (ultra-reliable low-latency communication) network “slices” is seen to hold enormous promise. The network slice architecture will support the scaling of IoT in the future, and deliver IoT services in a reliable and timely manner. It will guarantee the delivery of that power plant status indicator to the central control system. It will guarantee the scale of millions of pollution monitors spread in sensitive natural ecosystems to work with known turnaround times, so that corrective actions can be initiated instantly and automatically.How will this play out?The 5G standards are being published as we speak, although equipment vendors have begun creating product implementations, and field-trials (and even a few commercial deployments) are skyrocketing. New IoT devices which can speak 5G are being created. Limitations of the compute (often less than desired), storage (often tiny), and methods for command/control of the devices are being studied & addressed. Software (middleware) layers such as the VMware Pulse platform which are designed to manage the plethora of devices, are being adopted. Companies like Intel are solving important fundamental problems such as how to securely deploy and provision the devices with platforms such as Intel SDO.When can we expect results from 5G and IoT?Expect that the IoT capabilities of 5G network equipment, software, and IoT device ecosystems will fully evolve and converge in the next 12-18 months. Initial deployments will be in non-critical applications, soon to be followed by adoption in national critical infrastructure. IoT over 5G is truly a journey and will not happen overnight.Where will it all be deployed?Everywhere. Expect it to be mostly invisible. You will see that your local utility company will begin to reap the rewards of the resulting automation and management efficiencies, and pass along those savings to you, the consumer. In the end, we call it the Internet of Things, but it’s really made of things that serve people. And it will be global. The scale of industrial IoT revolution will reduce the cost and time difficult problems for all of mankind, not just the advanced economies of the world.At Dell Technologies, we are diligently working to make this revolution a reality. Our servers are optimized, long-lasting, and proven to operate in industrial spaces. Our client tech has been and continues to be at the heart of many IoT devices. Our networking and storage boxes may be invisible to you, the consumer, but rest assured that they already play a market share-leading role in most of these applications. Lastly, the software platforms, like the Pulse platform from VMware, will continue to solve scale, efficiency, and security problems posed by this revolution. To boot, we bring along strong ecosystem partnerships with industry leaders such as Intel to this space.Dell Technologies is making a mark on human progress enabled by the emerging 5G and Industrial IoT applications with our robust portfolio of telecommunication solutions to bring 5G to life.
Donny Chestnut was arrested taking his son for a joyride on an ATV A father who took his 10-year-old son for a joyride on an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) has been arrested after they were injured in a crash in Lauderhill, police reported.Donny Chestnut, 31, was arrested on multiple charges, including child neglect and reckless driving.According to a Lauderhill police report, Chestnut was operating the ATV when it crashed head-on into a woman’s car in the driveway of her home.Chestnut and his son were thrown from the ATV. Chestnut had a severe cut to his head, while his son cut his ankle and injured his collarbone.Police said Chestnut ran a stop sign at the time of the crash, and neither rider was wearing a helmet.According to the report, after hospital staff cut off Chestnut’s pants to treat him, they found five plastic bags that later tested positive for marijuana.The crash occurred while Chestnut was on probation for a second-degree murder charge. He also faces charges of violation of probation and possession of cannabis.
MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNFans at Oracle Park, perhaps sensing that this might be Bumgarner’s final home start as a Giant, gave him a standing ovation as he walked off the field, The Athletic’s Andrew Baggarly tweeted . Bumgarner is one of the top trade targets ahead of the July 31 deadline.Any injury that sidelines Bumgarner beyond Saturday is sure to complicate talks between the Giants and other teams. Will a team risk renting Bumgarner for the final two months if he isn’t available until, say, mid-August? Bumgarner completed that inning and another one but was removed before facing a batter in the top of the third. He left the mound after a consultation with manager Bruce Bochy and trainer Dave Groeschner.Here’s the ball that hit Bumgarner on the arm and eventually knocked him out of the game pic.twitter.com/i8Ucv7rugk— Jake Hutchinson (@hutchdiesel) July 7, 2019X-rays were negative, the team announced. Madison Bumgarner was the Giants’ opener Saturday night. No, that was not planned.The ace left-hander lasted just two innings before leaving with a bruise to his pitching elbow. He was struck in the arm by a line drive off the bat of Cardinals outfielder Jose Martinez in the first inning.
