Top trade-offs when designing an IoT cloud solution for scale
The trick to designing an IoT cloud solution for scale is to find the correct balance and optimise the trade-offs between the different options.
A leading national digital TV operator wanted to explore the implications of incorporating the community source Reference Development Kit for Video (RDK-V) into their middleware roadmap.
Strategy and Business Case
Reviewed the current solution context and the non-RDK-V roadmap options, and provided the comparative analysis of the outcomes of adopting the RDK-V approach. This analysis was informed by the following work.
Proof of concept & Design
We specified the alternative suppliers and components necessary to develop a proof of concept for a design using RDK-V. We indicated the necessary components of the RDK that would require integrating to provide the customer appropriate solution. And we provided guidance around the on-going commitment to the RDK approach and how the roadmap can be influenced.
Key Competencies Provided
Our wide experience in digital TV middleware and having one of the largest RDK teams in Europe allowed us to provide a comparative analysis between the current solution and one based on an RDK-V roadmap. The total cost of ownership was considered along with the time to market of the transition.
The customer had a clarity of the requirements to include RDK-V in their roadmap and were able to make an informed decision of the correct course of action for them.
