Internet of Things, mobile networks and services
Beyond the mobile Internet, IoT is the next major network revolution… and the SCS Cluster ecosystem is a leading community in this field.
The new challenges of mobile networks and services
The craze for data exchange
In the space of a few decades, networks and mobile services have been deployed massively for the benefit of consumers. Users are now increasingly enthusiastic for social media and data. Fixed and mobile telephone networks thus face new challenges, from managing communications (classical telephony) to managing actual presence (mobility, connectivity and data volumes).
The deployment of connected objects
The Internet of Things revolution
Beyond the mobile Internet, the Internet of Things (fixed or mobile), consumer or industrial represent the next “big thing” for networks. This in turn opens up a great many challenges in terms of architecture and integration of new technologies in these networks, but also in the fields of energy consumption management, miniaturization of sensors, integration of IPv6 in objects, and the possibility of producing M2M solutions suited to the various market sectors.
Deployments of connected objects and sensors planned in all sectors of the economy in the context of the IoT will lead to a massive proliferation of datas that will be sent back to the IT infrastructure. Already, more than 2.5 trillion bytes of data are daily produced and it is increasing exponentially.
Big Data technologies
The challenge of trust and security
The processing, organization, classification, cleaning, traceability and all the operations that will make this data “smart” and “safe” are the big issues for Big Data technologies.
For that, 4 key technological challenges of Big Data:
- Volume: what volumes of data to process and store?
- Velocity: For some sensitive processes, Big Data technologies need to be used in real time.
- Variety: structured or unstructured data? What formats and standards?
- Veracity: What levels of confidence in the data and results obtained?
Building trust and security in Big Data is a key challenge in view of the variety and increasing number of sources.
Major technological challenges
Management and optimization of energy consumption
Interoperability and convergence of networks and technologies
performance and control over new content with Big Data
Working groups dedicated to IoT and Big Data
The SCS Cluster has set up working groups dedicated to IoT and Big Data to encourage IoT innovations and animate innovative projects around Big Data.
SCS thus promotes the development and financing of use cases and IoT solutions, particularly in the field of “IoT security”. The 130 IoT & Big data partners represent a leading IoT ecosystem in France.
- A network of 130 partners
- 85% of startups et PMEs
- 125 million € R&D invested in 33 R&D projects funded up to 48 million €
- Networking of 1 300 partners
Technologies for high-growth markets
To access markets and customers, the SCS Cluster has since 2013 launched “Market Meetings” with technology providers and major contractors for networking, for project launch or Proof Of Concepts.
These target markets are:
- E Health
- Consumer Electronics
- Digital Industry
- Smart City
