What in the #IoT is that??

A question many companies are asking right now. The endless debate about data collection and use is continually growing and Internet of Things stakeholders are asking: What should we do with all this data? A recent survey from Dimensional Research sponsored by ParStream titled Internet of Things (IoT) Meets Big Data and Analytics revealed that 94% of companies or stakeholders that are involved in some way with IoT projects face challenges collecting and analyzing data in a timely fashion. Why is this a problem? Imagine having servers with gigantic amounts of IoT data stashed away in some warehouse, waiting for someone to make sense of it, and inform you promptly about whether or not your connected home is overheated (hey Nest users!) or if someone is stealing your valuables (hey there Canary fans!).

Proximity Series: Transportation

More and more, industries have been adopting robust systems powered by internet of things devices and processes, delving deeper into the universe of data and potential these technological resources may offer. The purpose of this series is to widen the spectrum of possibilities of how these technologies can be used in a variety of industries but with a strong denominator: LTE direct. As we have previously stated in other posts, Compass.to has used LTE Direct in a number of occasions, understanding in detail the use, possibilities and challenges this technology offers.

How proximity-based technologies will change the way we experience sports – LTE Direct

World Cup fever

World Cup 2014 set multiple records

Last year we saw how the World Cup in Brazil set multiple records including most saves in a World Cup match by Tim Howard (USA), oldest player in a FIFA World Cup by Faryd Mondragon (Colombia), and most goals scored in a single World Cup (171 goals). Beyond the sport-related records, many more were set in the field of marketing, fan engagement, and interactions. For instance, it was the first event to reach 1 billion interactions on Facebook, most tweets per minute during a single game (618,725 ARG vs. GER) and Lucas Podolski’s (GER) final game selfie got retweeted 93,000 times. Why is this relevant and what does it have to do with proximity-based technologies? Let’s get right to it.

Empowering citizens with #ProximityServices – SXSW 2015

New York City in the Age of Proximity

New York City in the Age of Proximity

Imagine New York City as a supremely intelligent device that constantly communicates, understands, broadcasts and shares relevant information with its citizens. Imagine the MTA, for instance, communicating in real time with its passengers, suggesting which bus or train to take while considering weather reports, accidents, or fastest routes. The power and reach of proximity services in cities is now possible through new device-to-device communication technologies and apps such as LTE Direct and Compass.to, that allow our cities to become smart and let inhabitants take true advantage of the data that surrounds them while helping them make the right choices.

Mobile Connectivity at MWC

The Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona is just around the corner. As we mentioned in a previous post, we’ll be showcasing the work we’ve been doing here at Compass.to. Anticipating what will happen in the Catalonia province, we are firm believers that we will witness some of the greatest mobile innovations as far as technology is concerned. One issue with this tough, is that the more mobile applications are released, the sense of connectivity and community among mobile users seem to go down the priority list of mobile developers. We believe smartphones and mobile devices need to bridge the gap between the physical and digital world, while providing real value and connecting with real people.
