Smart Building

The Digital Signage Solution from Intel helps solutions providers connect to an enormous market opportunity—a digital signage market that is expected to hit $20 billion by 2020.
The smart home story of CES is usually about how it's getting ever easier and cheaper to build connected tech into your home. That'll be true this year, too. But there's another story that's starting to pop up: just how many of our gadgets are suddenly able to talk to each other.

Honeywell and Intel are helping transform buildings into intelligent contributors across the globe, with their smart building solutions driving positive business outcomes and enhancing experiences—while opening up the smart building world to more and more players.

Stadiums are stepping up their game for fans by adding in-stadium audio and video, digital signage, mobile apps for transportation and concessions, and loads of network bandwidth. San Francisco 49er fans don’t have nearly as much to brag about this season as their fans across the bay in Raider Nation do. But they do have one bright spot that outshines every team in the NFL: the most high-tech sports venue in the world, Levi’s® Stadium in Santa Clara, CA.

The need among cities, factories and offices to install more efficient lighting solutions has inspired GE and Intel to create smart LEDs that can see, hear and sense their surroundings.

What used to be a huge stumbling block in selling digital signs—high acquisition costs for supersize screens and hardware—has all but disappeared as prices continue to drop in 2016 and beyond.  

Recent attacks on IoT devices could make IT leery of IoT projects, especially in operational technology environments. Following best practices can ensure that the project has IT support and help. Solution providers can step in and add the security layers that IoT demands.

The Intel Building Management Platform (Intel BMP) gives IoT solution providers a clear path to solve the problem of low-cost, secure, IoT-based building management for small-to medium-size facilities.

There’s no two ways about it, IoT is changing the way shoppers shop and retail merchants sell, and it’s achieving a lot of this by leveraging an older, tried and true technology—RFID. Whether it’s more accurately tracking inventory, increasing location visibility or bringing virtual and physical shopping experiences together, IoT-powered RFID is playing a big role in revolutionizing the retail market.

While more cities across the globe are recognizing—and realizing—the multitude of benefits the Internet of Things (IoT) can deliver, some cities identified its potential much earlier than others. Considered by many to be the first true “smart city,” Barcelona, Spain, embraced the idea of using connected technology as a tool to both improve its citizens’ lives and save the city money long before the concept was widely lauded.
