Huawei announces collaboration with Honeywell to develop smart building offerings

At CeBIT 2017, the world’s largest ICT exhibition, Huawei announced that it is collaborating with Honeywell to bring to market smart building offerings that take advantage of the latest Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to help make buildings more sustainable, secure and energy efficient. An important building block of the collaboration is a new IoT gateway Huawei is working on. It is built on Tridium’s Niagara Framework and collects and analyzes data from buildings to provide detection, deduction, determination and decision-making capabilities to customers. The solution will greatly improve building intelligence by providing functions such as access control, intrusion monitoring, and disaster detection in the security and safety field. The Gateway offers energy saving features, with functions like cooling and heating control, natural resource usage, and electric appliance management. It also provides illumination, transportation, and communication control for efficiency and convenience, while also providing customers with an innovative solution for more sustainable, secure and energy efficient connected buildings.

Trusted Objects and Sigfox bring security to Internet of Things applications

Trusted Objects, a security expert for the Internet of Things (IoT), announced the release of its Secure Element (SE) designed for connected solutions on the Sigfox network. A Secure Element brings significantly better security than a simple software solution, which is often the target of hackers. In this application, the Secure Element securely stores Sigfox device ID, Network Authentication Key and Encryption Key with the same security level as banking smart cards. Thanks to these security features, the Secure Element performs a strong authentication of a device on the Sigfox network and allows to encrypt the payload on the device.
