Homeowners want to protect their privacy and have control over what and how much information is accessible to others.

Tenants want to be sure that rental properties do not include certain smart technologies such as cameras or voice recorders.

Most people are not willing to download several different apps to control the appliance technologies in their homes.

Tech companies must introduce safeguards to ensure consumer privacy.

Landlords should focus on technologies like smart thermostats that benefit both parties.

Developers will have to increase interconnectivity and compatibility in their products.

Car manufacturers are challenged to keep up with the rapid smartphone upgrades. They must meet today’s consumer expectations of continuous connectivity. At the same time, due to reliability and safety issues, they need to make careful decisions about how many apps are available to drivers. While carmakers believe built-in options could provide better connectivity, many consumers prefer tethering their smartphone via Bluetooth or a USB cable to give them full access to their personal data.

This connection opens up additional risk potentials that are difficult to calculate. Security and privacy aspects at software and hardware as well as upgrades of the legal requirements are ongoing. Responsible parties are aiming to achieve standardization when it comes to protect against cyberattacks. Some improvements have already been published, but do not apply yet.

Carmakers are looking to forge new partnerships with mobile providers to satisfy consumer connectivity needs and expectations. Dealers understand the necessity of training sales personnel on the technological features they offer, so these can be explained in an easily understandable way.

Manufacturers need to work on shorter development cycles to keep up with the constant upgrading of systems and availability of new technologies such as sensor fusion (e.g., Radar, LIDAR) running over smart phones.

In addition to supporting you with compliance, we also offer tests and evaluations for data security, such as cyberattacks, data theft, and fraud. We belong to various radio standardization groups working on solutions to these challenges, especially when it comes to protecting users.

  • City planners

Cities often face budgetary issues that leave insufficient funds for a successful transition to a smart city.

In addition, communities commonly deal with a lack of experienced professionals in this sector.

Fluctuating network speeds also make it difficult for most cities to obtain the connectivity needed to enable a true smart city. And the need for privacy and high security must also be taken into account.

Responsible authorities, planners and stakeholders must devise an effective strategy for acquiring adequate revenue to fund their smart city initiatives.

Early measures should to be taken to hire the required professional talent before starting any project, and to invest in the correct technology to reach goals. Those include obtaining the appropriate devices, infrastructures, and security parameters to protect against cyberattacks.

Reliable network connectivity and interoperability is critical to every IoT device. However, in the medical sector, where patients may depend on the reliability of the equipment, it is really a matter of life or death.

Cybersecurity is especially important when protecting medical devices from outside interference to prevent serious injury to patients and protect confidential healthcare information.

Medical device development is complicated, expensive and time consuming. It relies on teams of software and hardware engineers, regulatory authorities, and other entities, working together.

Developers and manufacturers must ensure and certify the safety and reliability of their products. In parallel, network operators must develop robust systems that are able to provide the requirements of such devices.

When introducing new IoT services, objective and reliable assessment of potential risks must be rigorous and comprehensive to ensure patients are protected at all times.

Government authorities and research institutes must provide sufficient funding and resources to ensure the development of high quality products for use in the medical IoT environment.

Industry 4.0 places a strong focus on security to protect operational networks, company and personal data, industrial control systems, industrial assets, critical infrastructure, and workers.

The fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) relies on state-of-the-art connected technology, devices, machinery, and systems as well as skilled personnel to operate and maintain a productive smart factory environment.

All components, machinery, and systems integrated into a smart factory must be tested and certified according to the IEC 62443 series of standards. This ensures compliant and effective cybersecurity for industrial networks.

Manufacturers must provide tested devices and machines to support an efficient and productive smart factory. Employees must be trained and all equipment and machinery must meet the requirements of recognized standards to ensure a safe workplace.

Chips and components build the foundation needed to connect diverse Internet of Things environments, from smart homes, connected vehicles, smart factories, and smart cities to smart healthcare.

In light of the ongoing pace of IoT development, chip and component manufacturers are on course to benefit across the technology value chain. Due to digitization of smart sensors, wearables, and networking technologies, their demand has increased.

The development of standardized test methods in order to protect against cyberattacks is in progress. Some improvements have already been published, but do not apply yet.

Chips and components used in wireless technologies should undergo rigorous testing according to recognized standards, approvals, and protocols for interoperability, security, safety, and performance.

Chip and module manufacturers must continuously innovate to enhance connectivity across the IoT value chain.

TÜV Rheinland works with various radio standardization groups on solutions to these challenges, especially to protect the users.

In addition to supporting you with meeting standards, we also offer tests and evaluations to protect against cyberattacks, data theft, and fraud, online features, and IoT products. This is how we want to support the branch to improve and optimize the complex system of mobile broadband technology.
