Climate change is an issue in which many industries need to elaborate on new solutions to be able to reduce the carbon emission footprint. Within these industries, the Internet is one of the major exponents of the climate change problem, which has its core malfunction inside the centralized vision it has been built on.
The Internet of Everything Corp (IoE Corp) believes the faster the world becomes sustainable with energy and resources, the better, and in cooperation with Quantum1Net, the Eden System unveils IoE Corp’s cutting-edge technology and market understanding. The Eden System is designed as the world’s first ever fully decentralized service infrastructure, designed from the ground up in every category.
By creating an entire service ecosystem, IoE Corp provides a unique set of decentralized services, enabling all industry verticals, from cities to construction sites. To easily implement energy, waste, and health services to assure a healthy and sustainable now and tomorrow. The Internet of Everything (IoE) promises to create a sustainable world!
IoE Corp is making that promise happen, because it’s the future we all want. In this sense, Eden’s decentralized solutions have the capacity to fight climate change by setting foundational technologies that prompt a human-first Internet of Things (IoT) approach. A view that consists of accelerating the transition to a sustainable world through the Internet of Everything.
As such, IoE Corp believes that IoT and Eden can help us all achieve the UN sustainability goals that are set to become a reality by 2030. This is a fight that has to be fought by all to make it a reality. A congregation formed, not by billionaires, but by people, and IoE Corp is here to provide a helping hand into this crucial worldwide problem which is climate change.
IoE Corp’s infrastructure for the Internet of Everything is based on a decentralized, well-designed Edge Computing platform. Relieving the Internet of the burden, centralization has been created through server farms (the Cloud) which require an immense amount of energy that pumps highly dangerous percentages of carbon emissions.
Digital decentralization offers an array of benefits that directly act on helping to fight climate change. As indicated above, it reduces immensely the necessity to depend on centralized solutions like cloud services providers. This paradigm shift resides in the capacity of truly decentralized software infrastructures to work at the source.
How is this possible? By using the power that onsite IoT devices have, it is viable to create a device cluster that functions as a cloud service provider. In other words, this cluster of devices can store, analyze, process, and send the data generated to professionals or machines without the need to move it from the source. A solution that creates benefits that reduce bandwidth usage, which comes down to infrastructure, electricity, and physical space decrease. As well as the computing power that is required by cloud services, we have to take into account that server centers stack millions of servers.
To be able to manage these large amounts of servers, cooling systems have to be implemented to keep the temperature in reasonable working conditions. And when servers lose one-third of their power as heat, it is paramount to install highly sophisticated cooling systems, that in turn also consume huge amounts of energy.
In contrast, as the decentralized cluster of devices on site, is not stacked in one single place, the problem of temperature is mitigated as the heat generated is spread out. Therefore, cooling systems are not an essential part of the infrastructure. Another important advantage is the assurance of real-time data.
You might wonder how real-time data can help to fight climate change. To set up a case, real-time data assurance is fundamental as it provides to actuators the information exactly when it is required. And this is a critical requirement when we are talking about large IoT devices deployments in cities, factories, or hospitals.
Inside these large IoT installations, critical data is a reality, and actuators need to receive it instantly, otherwise, it is of no use. Imagine if traffic management wasn’t able to obtain real-time data, if this was the case, the issues arising could end up in disastrous outcomes. Even worse is the fact of not just getting real-time data, but obtaining erroneous or hard-to-understand data.
To tackle this problem, decentralized software infrastructure like IoE Corp’s Eden System provides onsite a knowledge-based AI that processes big data and produces data to information refinement. Which, in practical terms, can differentiate between unimportant data and important data, and when it does send it to the actuator precisely when it is needed.
A solution that comes in very handy when talking about high-risk industries like oil and gas and energy and utilities. As these can cause immense catastrophes for the ecosystem and affect directly on climate change with oil spillage, gas leakage, or malfunction of electric plant grids. Hence, real-time data to information refinement is an essential tool that is capable of predictive maintenance that in turn helps to fight climate change.
The reduction of dependency on cloud service providers, and the assurance of real-time data to information refinement, help keep a cost-efficient service. A reality that provides, for example, cities with a scalable service to digitize the city’s infrastructure, without the risk of exponential rises in cost due to high peaks of data traffic during specific celebrations, e.g., Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, or Christmas, during the year. As well as the ever-growing city population that is predicted to rise to over two-thirds of the world’s population.
Obviously, cost-efficiency is also of vital importance for all industries, and the current digitalization heading to Industry 4.0 demands cost-efficiency. The investment that has to be made by businesses requires a short-to-middle ROI to be a viable solution to make corporations more competitive. Giving them space to account for sustainability measures to be placed within their yearly budget, which finally also helps to fight climate change.
There is no point for all types of companies to invest in digitalization through IoT devices deployment, if there are no clear investment costs or ROI results. IoE Corp’s groundbreaking technology can provide businesses with clear overall digitalization costs, that in turn help to lower the ROI times. Something that centralized solutions have proven to be unable to offer, and which they have tried to solve by complicating the process even more.
Once presented, the current state of digitalization to help fight climate change and the innovative solutions that are arising for a paradigm shift. IoE Corp is at the forefront of this new technology, based on a human-first approach, at a sustainable level. Providing advantages throughout the climate change cycle, as the ones already stated, and others as security, privacy, and sustainability.
IoE Corp’s decentralized software technology provides security beyond cyber, which means it is able to mitigate active and passive risks. A solution that is designed specifically for large IoT devices deployments, as IoE Corp has seen that within current data management solutions for IoT, there are vulnerabilities that cybercriminals and cyberterrorists are taking advantage of. Let’s look at these in more detail.
The active risks that appear frequently when IoT devices are installed in large projects, like cities or factories, are the constant cyberattacks. A circumstance that comes through the centralized nature of cloud service providers, making it possible for cybercriminals and cyberterrorists to access the whole network through one endpoint.
These attacks can come through DDoS, ransomware, malware, or viruses that are injected into the system, and consequently, shuts it down. And to be able to release it from the attack, a payment has to be made to the hackers, which can cost the business millions of dollars. IoE Corp’s Eden System, mitigates the attacks by means of its decentralized infrastructure that uses a blockchain with service manifests and consensus to alert of alterations within the network, creating Online Private Gardens.
Once the alteration has been detected, the device, node, or sensor that has been infected, is ignored by the rest of the network. In this way, even if a cybercriminal accesses the network, it can not take control of it as a whole because the infected part is cut out from the system. And as the network service information is available system-wide, all devices have access to the service information. This infrastructure helps to keep the system activated, as the infected node’s functions can be done by another node in the network.
In the case of the passive risks, we are talking about malfunctions of devices, a possibility that is real, as when in the millions, there is always the possibility of devices breaking down. To resolve this problem, the same process is performed by the system, as for cyberattacks. Due to the blockchain keeping track of all data movements and verifying that data received comes from another trusted node on the blockchain. It can identify if there is a device, sensor, or node deviating from its assigned task.
When the malfunction is identified, it can be examined to be fixed or replaced, and in the meantime, as previously presented, other nodes can be assigned the task of the malfunctioning node. This system is extremely efficient as it can detect erroneous data being injected into the knowledge-based AI, which safeguards critical systems such as, for example, traffic management or hospital infrastructure.
In relation to the ownership of the data generated by the devices, IoE Corp’s Eden System, with its Online Private Gardens, keeps the data at the source. Therefore, data is owned and kept private in the source, and only critical data is capable of leaving the network. E.g., a high increase in temperature within a home or factory can be reached by first responders to act consequently.
Again this is possible due to the security that the blockchain offers as all the data inputted into it is immutable. And as IoE Corp’s digital ledger is quantum-safe and accessed using polymorphic encryption keys, the end-user can rest assured that his/her data is safely stored onsite.
Although the above benefits of IoE Corp’s technology don’t have a direct impact on helping to reduce carbon emissions, its sustainable computing approach does. By working out a well-thought-through plan for IoT’s data management computing power, it has decided to use the Rust language.
Rust language is actioned through compiled code, which has been contrasted to be less wasteful of energy consumption, unlike the interpreted code that requires larger amounts of energy to perform. As such, IoE Corp uses a type of computing language that helps to act on CO2 emissions, and this is hugely important taking into account that the exponential growth of data is still increasing. Even as early as 2025, predictions indicate that ITC is going to surpass the carbon emission of the aviation and shipping industry.
As you can see, IoE Corp’s Eden System, with its Online Private Gardens, digital ledger security, and its sustainable computing approach. It is providing breakthrough and innovative technologies to help fight climate change, and also creating a secure, scalable, cost-efficient, and private network in which IoT can reach its full potential.
