Manufacturing Happy Hour

Submarines IoT and Intrapreneurship with Rob Tiffany

Chris Luecke and I chat about everything from submarines and the Navy to IoT, intrapreneurship, and saving the world. We talk about how I first got started in the world of IoT and manufacturing after a career in the Navy working on submarines. I share some insights into the early days of smartphone manufacturing, how ‘trains as a service’ became a thing in Europe, the roadblocks in IoT’s way, and much more.

Live Life on the Edge: Episode One

On the Inaugural episode of “Live Life on the Edge Podcast,” Adam Livesay and I have a fascinating discussion. We go deep on IoT, Industry 4.0, 5G, and manufacturing.

Adman and I talk about my career from serving our country, to start-ups, to early days with Microsoft Azure, to launching the Hitachi Industrial IoT Platform Lumada, to my current role as VP & Head of IoT Strategy for Ericsson.

M2M Influencer

Rob Tiffany Named a Top 100 M2M Influencer

In Onalytica’s 2016 analysis and ranking of individuals and brands in the Machine to Machine space, Rob was ranked a top 100 #M2M influencer. #IoT

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, Machine to Machine (M2M) refers to the direct communication between devices using a variety of communications channels, including wired and wireless. Many of you will think this is the same or similar to the Internet of Things and you wouldn’t necessarily be wrong. I started my career in the M2M space connecting unintelligent vending machines to primitive wireless networks to derive value from remotely monitoring them. Needless to say, a lot has changed since then.

Analytic M2M

In modern terms, traditional M2M is often expressed as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) or Industrie 4.0. Imagine the value to be derived from connecting, analyzing and acting on data from industries such as healthcare, automotive, oil and gas, agriculture, government, smart cities, manufacturing, and public utilities. It’s an exciting space to be in and it’s rapidly transforming our world.
