Network World: Mobile IoT provider applies military techniques to improve IoT resiliency

LILEE STS mobile communication, sensor and application platform helps first responders provide better care The military knows how to operate in chaotic situations. Where should resources be deployed? How should isolated platoons be managed? How should field units and central command coordinate activities when communication lines are broken? How can communications be secured? How can systems be made more resilient? Many military techniques can be adapted to enhance IoT resiliency. Lessons from the Art of War Military communications or “comms” are activities, equipment and tactics the military uses on the battlefield. They include measurement systems, cryptography and robust communication channels. Military doctrine combines centralized intent with decentralized execution. Four key design principles are...

Mass Transit: Best Practices: Implementing Positive Train Control

Mass Transit: Best Practices: Implementing Positive Train Control

By Staff, June 9, 2016   San Jose, Calif. Steve Zwart Senior Director Solutions & Software LILEE Systems There is no doubt that all U.S. Class I railroads are thinking about the 2018 Positive Train Control (PTC) installation deadline recently defined by Congress.  Massive infrastructure changes, technology development and product testing are just some of the challenge facing railroads that need to install PTC across more than 70,000 miles of track. With so many logistical roadblocks facing railroads, meeting the upcoming deadline might seem improbable. PTC solutions were essentially nonexistent prior to 2008 when Congress passed a law requiring railroads to install PTC on Class I mainlines and some other railroads. The new law meant that the rail industry had to design new solutions and update existing architecture to meet Federal Railroad Administration requirements in a short timeframe. Starting from scratch, engineers and architects had to design, develop and test new PTC products that met the new regulations. Products had to be integrated into a larger railway system, while ensuring the system remained functioning and maintainable.   Original story from Mass Transit...
