Center2M CEO Evgeny Miskevich on Russian IoT trends in 2019
The main IoT trends in 2019 will be machine learning, blockchains and the search for solutions to problems associated with creating a global infrastructure for the IoT. In addition, the industry is waiting for breakthroughs related to the creation of smart cities, artificial intelligence for terminal devices and the active development of FaaS ("function as a service").
As some experts in the field of artificial intelligence told, 2019 will bring significant changes to the industry. Most of them will affect the implementation of infrastructure projects. According to Konstantin Timofeev, head of sales for OEM/IoT solutions for Russia and the CIS markets at Dell EMC, one of the most urgent tasks is to create a cloud platform to integrate and streamline IoT data received from various devices and forms of infrastructure.
The logical extension of the smart city trend, according to the director for innovation at SAS, Yuri Goldberg, would be the creation of an infrastructure integrated into the IoT. The system should combine single elements, such as smart transportation and smart homes, into a single ecosystem with an autonomous life-support system.
Another effect of digitalization is the expansion of IoT business opportunities. As explained by Evgeny Miskevich, partner of the logistics company Tochka-Tochka and CEO of Center2M, the use of information technology is becoming a key advantage for competitive enterprises.
"The availability of sensors for monitoring parameters, data transmission channels and modern methods of analysis make it possible to create a "digital twin" when any necessary information is displayed on an engineer's monitor or augmented reality glasses. Whether it is a three-dimensional scheme of pipelines at thermal power plants with prompts on parameter deviations, a three-dimensional image of a cruiser in a shipyard that allows instant access to design documentation, or a diagram of electrical switchgear seen through the glasses of a production engineer, in all cases, we must integrate the maximum number of production processes into a single information environment."

"The active introduction of the IoT into business, urban planning and everyday life will necessarily lead to growth for connected devices. This will naturally push the industry to increase communication channel capacity," says Sergey Ponomarenko, IoT and AI project manager at WaveAccess. The logical step will be the emergence of large telecom operators possessing their own computing infrastructures. According to Rusonyx CEO Konstantin Anisimov, one general trend is a departure from physical devices and the spread of serverless, cloud-based architecture. Finally, the spread of cloud technology will entail the transition of IoT developers to the concept of "edge computing." According to Vladimir Lasovskiy, IoT business development manager at Orange Business Services, information processing will be performed not only in the remote cloud but also directly by the connected devices themselves, which will improve task accuracy and guarantee the system's operation under any, even extraordinary, circumstances.
