Over time, the word ‘digital’ has become quite a familiar term and is now being used in almost every industry. There are a number of keywords in the field, but one term we are hearing more often these days seems to be ‘Digital Transformation’.
Digital Transformation refers to a change through which corporate work environments as well as people’s behaviors and experiences become digitalized. But what technologies should companies pay most attention to in order to keep pace with this trend? Each year, Dell shares a list of IT trends that are predicted to make headlines. Let’s have a look at their list for 2017.
Prediction 1. Immersive Technology Goes Mainstream
Prediction 2. Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Come to the Fore
Prediction 3. 5K and More
Prediction 4. Chief IoT Officer
Prediction 5. The Era of Intelligent Machines
Case Study- LG HVAC Intelligent Machine
Using BECON Cloud, each client can view reports that show the exact source of efficiency losses. One can see which parameters are out of their normal range and diagnose problems in order to repair a system in a timely matter.
The wattage data and equipment (especially with indoor units) operative condition can be compared as well, in order to check HVAC energy efficiency and consult clients based on this diagnosis. Moreover, the simulation function forecasts optimal energy management strategies for the near future and adjusts accordingly. This smart solution will give you insights for the future.
Prediction 6. Machine Perception
Prediction 7. HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) Security
BECON Cloud, mentioned earlier, also has a strict security system. Commands from the outside web/mobile control are sent to a central controller, and once the data being transmitted or received is leaked, it can be abused by hackers. In order to prevent this, LG HVAC encrypted packets through an AES 128bit algorithm.
BECON Cloud consists of multiple organically interlocked servers, each with their own purpose. Servers are protected with firewalls so that even if one of the servers is exposed to access from the outside, other servers can remain safe (currently only access from within the LG R&D Campus is granted).
Another well-known method of attack is to input a free route and enter an error page on purpose in order to get server information. To prevent this type of attack, BECON Cloud displays a different error page when accessed through an unauthorized route.
