Who wants to reboot their thermostat? Garage door opener? That's where we're heading because most Internet of Things (IoT) vendors have taken a "Honey, I shrunk the computer" design approach. That's wrong. The danger is that the commonly used Internet architecture, that was designed in the minicomputer era, doesn't translate well to IoT. The reason is cost.
Fortunately cloud computing enables us to reduce overall system cost and complexity. First, endpoints can remain simple which means more reliable products, and more be secure. Second, and more importantly, the Cloud enables low cost and easy to install products. Both of which are necessary for the internet of things mass market to grow rapidly. We'll explore real world applications enabled a cloud based IoT architecture.
Shane is the founder and CEO of Arrayent. He is passionately engaged in communicating Arrayent’s vision for connected products and working with Arrayent’s customers to ensure that Arrayent’s long-term strategy is aligned with long-term customer needs. Before Arrayent, Shane was the co-founder and CTO of Propellerhead Studios, Inc., a design studio that specialized in consumer electronics products for young adults. In 1998, Shane became CEO of ActivePhoto, Inc., which partnered with Polaroid and Sprint to deliver Internet-connected digital camera systems to large enterprises such as Allstate and Kemper Insurance long before digital photography became mainstream. Shane began his career as a researcher at Rockwell Science Center, where he developed new networking algorithms for low-power wireless systems. Later he became a VLSI design engineer at C-Cube Microsystems working on cable and satellite set-top box designs.
Shane holds a B.S. in Computer Systems Engineering from Stanford University.
