The new generation of mobile devices, applications, and cloud services significantly improve agency efficiencies. Tasks that were once relegated to timeconsuming deskwork, are now performed in the field, and with improved accuracy. Because of this, more and more public safety agencies are adopting these new technologies.
One purpose of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy is to enable agencies to fully leverage mobile devices, but without sacrificing security. Mobile devices introduce a variety of new threat vectors and risks. Careful consideration of these risks is important to maintaining information security. Threats to mobile devices stem mainly from their size, portability, and available wireless interfaces. Examples of mobile device threats include:
• Loss or theft of device
• Unauthorized access to device
• Mobile operating system vulnerabilities
• Communication over untrusted networks
• Malware or malicious Apps
• Jailbreak or rooting activity
• Data loss through user behaviors

The IoT is transforming the energy industry by eliminating tradeoffs between operation, SCADA systems, maintenance and new services for assets deployed in industrial and power facilities, buildings and across the grid.
When it comes to building the best IoT system for your business application, it’s vital to keep your use case and business requirements at the forefront of your technical design strategy. In the energy industry, accessing and collecting data at the edge from disparate, heterogenous, multi-site, fixed topologies and transferring that data efficiently to the cloud to perform analytics and action business decisions is still the greatest challenge. Mission-critical data collected from the edge is integral to energy facility operations and cannot be excluded or corrupted.
By simplifying the ability of companies to securely extract, orchestrate and act on data from when it is generated by energy assets to when it is transmitted to the cloud, Octave simplifies the development and commercialization of Energy IoT applications. With Octave, energy companies are empowered to realize the Energy IoT’s tremendous potential, with new demand response, energy efficiency optimization, predictive maintenance and other applications that maximize the value created by energy assets and minimize their environmental impact. In doing so, these Energy IoT applications can reduce energy costs, improve customer engagement, lower greenhouse gas emissions and increase energy reliability.

In addition to e-books, on-demand video and GPS devices, one of the future technological innovations envisioned by AT&T in its famous early 1990s series of “You Will” commercials was an Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system that enabled drivers to wirelessly pay their tolls as they drove through a toll booth. While that prediction was perhaps not as bold as the others (Europe began developing similar ETC systems in the 1980s), today we take for granted E-ZPass in the U.S. and similar systems where drivers can enter toll roads, HOV lanes, bridges and tunnels without having to stop at a tollbooth to pay.
Typically, these systems require a driver to put an OBU (On Board Unit, which can be called transponder or “edge” IoT device) in their vehicle and, when their vehicle passes through a toll booth, the toll booth wirelessly connects to the edge to automatically deduct the toll from their bank account.
For centuries, new technologies have ushered in entirely new eras of progressive change in all facets of life, and have revolutionized
countless industries. The invention of the steam engine brought about the industrial revolution and expanded trade and transportation.
Quantum physics was the foundation of the electronics revolution that brought us transistors, TV, radio, and computers. And the Internet
has brought about a stunning information and communication revolution, which is still sending shock waves across virtually every industry,
and to the very core of our cultures and lifestyles.
With a surge of 25,000 devices and counting, Dartmouth College needed its
new Wi-Fi to be fast, reliable and as smart as its students.
In response, Dartmouth, based in Hanover, N.H., began deploying new
campus-wide Wi-Fi from Mist Systems last summer. It expects to complete
the project throughout the campus in three to five years, according to Bryan
Ward, a network engineer at Dartmouth.
The IT department manages the Wi-Fi through a cloudbased wireless LAN and can already see the benefits of
better coverage and easier management. But the team faced difficulties when embedding the new system with
Dartmouth's centuries-old campus architecture, which is less supportive of campus-wide Wi-Fi than modern
The following interview has been edited for length and clarity.
Today’s digital classrooms need amazing wireless networks
that are predictable, reliable and measurable. By choosing
the Mist Learning WLAN, Guilford College graduated to a
modern cloud platform that uses AI to automate daily Wi-Fi
operations, simplify troubleshooting, and most importantly
ensure every student has a great mobile experience.
Historically, the speed of a wired connection at the access edge has always been faster than that of a wireless connection. This means workers had to choose between the performance of wired connectivity and the convenience of a wireless connection. Consequently, workers often had to modify the way they worked— first, finding a wired port to use for high-bandwidth applications, such as video or streaming media, and then shifting to wireless connections when the need to be mobile was more important than having the performance of wired.
Cisco Helped to Deploy the World’s Largest 802.11ac Wave 2 Wireless Network for China University of Geosciences.
