This year at Red Hat Summit, I was part of a team whose objective was to create a running, IoT-focused system, at some scale (hundreds of beacons, millions of events), based on a real-world use case to demo live, on stage during the middleware keynote at Red Hat Summit.
Our team chose the area of asset tracking, where important machines, tools or equipment (think mobile ultra-sound machines in hospitals) need to be located on demand and tracked for their usage each day, week, month, year. But, for our demo, instead of machines, we asked Red Hat Summit attendees to participate as our “assets” by wearing Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons to track their movement throughout the conference.

Red Hat is hosting a virtual event, “Building data-driven solutions for the Internet of Things,” at 11 a.m. EDT (New York City time) on Thursday, April 23, 2015. As people, devices, and machines increasingly connect to form broader and broader networks of “things,” all sending and receiving data to one another, being able to understand and leverage the Internet of Things (IoT) within the enterprise becomes an important task.

The Internet of Things represents outstanding opportunities for innovation and opens the door to new development projects. At its core is the need for next-generation intelligent systems to collect, analyze, and communicate data into actionable information. Red Hat is in a unique position to help developers architect those systems and bring about the promises of the IoT. In fact, Red Hat technology is already embedded in intelligent systems throughout the world to enable IoT use cases such as Smart Cities, Positive Train Control, smart energy metering, and telemetrics.

“Summary: As the Internet of Things stands to transform the enterprise, look beyond the traditional architecture used for consumer-based IoT solutions. In a three-tier architecture for the Internet of Things, the intelligent controller tier makes the interconnections between the device and datacenter tiers, holding together the entire IoT solution.
