Navigant Japan

July 3, 2019

Japan can be considered the most industrialized nation in Asia Pacific, with geographic, technology, and market dynamics all pointing toward greater reliance on renewable distributed energy resources (DER). Though the market for virtual power plants (VPPs) is nascent in Asia Pacific (see Chart 1-1), it has the potential to grow into a major hotbed of VPP innovation spanning both commercial and industrial (C&I) and residential customers. While Asia Pacific ranks third among major regions for VPPs according to Navigant Research,1 it is expected to move into second place within the decade. A series of market reforms have set the stage for VPPs and other DER management platforms such as microgrids and DER management system.

The Right Approach to Zero Trust for IoT Devices

whitePaper | May 3, 2022

Networking and security teams have historically relied on protections at the network perimeter to secure the entire enterprise. The internal network was deemed trusted and secure. While everything outside was considered “dirty,” everything on the internal network was considered “clean,” and application traffic would flow unrestricted. However, recent and developing shifts in enterprise working models are having a far-reaching effect on the traditionally managed network perimeter for security. The following trends are making organizations reassess their approach to security:

Developing Virtual Reality (VR) products

whitePaper | February 18, 2021

Extended Reality (XR) technologies will be key trends to watch out for in 2021 and beyond. We are likely to see a landslide of innovative products, applications, and use-cases delivering ever more realistic immersive experiences. Most of us have our first experiences of Virtual Reality (VR) in gaming and entertainment. However, research shows that the industries and enterprises are quickly becoming the most prominent users of XR, particularly Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) technologies. Developing custom VR devices is exceptionally challenging. Virtual Reality devices are incredibly complicated and highly integrated products. Each component, every line of code, and all the materials, design, and development choices have a universal effect on the device and determine how well it functions and what kind of user experience it delivers. We at Haltian have years of renowned product design and development experience with wearable devices, IoT solutions and successful VR devices. In this whitepaper, we describe ten crucial design considerations to help developers of VR devices succeed in their product development endeavour!
