Blockchain and Servitization of Manufacturing

Geschreven door Ben van Lier - 31 augustus 2017

Neely [1] defines servitization as the process by which firms provide services along with the products they manufacture and supply. In Neely’s view, servitization is a process of innovation that enables companies to create real added value by selling their products – such as machines, aircraft engines, cars, or television sets – with high-value accompanying services.  Lees meer >>

Blockchain and Securing Distributed Things

Geschreven door Ben van Lier - 14 februari 2017

In October 2016, the systems of Dyn, a US-based company that specialises in services such as domain name registration and management, came under a massive DDoS attack on an unprecedented scale. The attack, executed by around 100,000 devices, including routers, IP cameras and digital video recorders, caused major problems for websites of companies across Europe and the US, The Guardian reported [1]. The likes of Spotify, Netflix, Amazon, GitHub, Reddit, CNN, Twitter and PayPal were all affected. The individual devices were infected with a computer virus called Mirai [2], which bundled the individual and distributed devices into a whole, in this case a botnet, which was able to launch a debilitating cyber attack on Dyn.  Lees meer >>

Smart Grids and 5G Networks enable next Industrial Revolution

Geschreven door Ben van Lier - 22 juli 2015

According to the American economist Jeremy Rifkin, the biggest economic revolutions arose from amalgamating new communication technologies with new energy systems. He states the following about such synthesis in his book[1] the Third Industrial Revolution: “New energy regimes makes possible the creation of more interdependent economic activity and expanded communication exchange as well, facilitate more dense and inclusive relationships”. This brings up the question if merging new developments such as Smart Grids, Intelligent Machines and a new fifth generation mobile telecommunication network (5G) will form a basis for a new industrial revolution.  Lees meer >>
