By 2020, there will be 50 billion devices connected to the Internet. How will you and your organization capitalize on this tremendous opportunity?
While the promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) brings many new business prospects, it also presents significant challenges ranging from technology architectural choices to security concerns. MIT Professional Education’s new Internet of Things: Roadmap to the Connected World course offers important insights on how to overcome these challenges and thrive in this exciting space.
Now in it's second year, and building on a very successful launch in 2015, The IOT Show Asia will welcome over 2,000 attendees from across Asia this 1-2 September in Singapore. C o-located with two complementary events: The Commercial UAV Show Asia and The Smart Machine Show, we're creating Asia's largest emerging technology show.
We have just finished our sneak peek brochure, with updates on our newest speakers, latest agenda, discounts and more!
Just about anything that can be worn is about to become part of the Internet of Things.
In a major deal just announced, a minimum of 10 billion apparel and footwear products for some of the world’s largest fashion and performance brands are going to be created with unique digital identities built in.

By extension, the Internet of Things will also take time to mature.
The infancy stage of the Internet started when packet switching and TCP/IP were born with the ARPANET in 1969. Slow growth of networked communications occurred over the next 20 years until the World Wide Web was born with the introduction of hypertext and HTTP by Tim Berners-Lee from CERN in 1989.
These days, the word “smart” is being applied to anything with a processor or a sensor and a connection to a network of some sort. You can argue that having some processing power for information and the ability to communicate with something makes a device “smart” – or at least a lot smarter than it was before.
The word smart is also being applied to cities now – so what does it mean to be a smart city, or at least a smarter one?
These are exciting times for the Internet of Things (IoT)! Just imagine that in a few short years IoT technology will be connected to nearly 25 billion “things” of one kind or another. That’s not a typo. That’s how fast the IoT is evolving and impacting our lives, and we are fortunate to have a ringside seat as it is happening.
That’s only the tip of the iceberg: The McKinsey Global Institute predicts IoT will have a total economic impact of up to $11 trillion by 2025.
Every month, more IoT products are hitting the market. However, sometimes IoT puts the burden on the customer to download separate apps and interact with each “thing” separately. So smart companies in this space are beginning to focus on standards and easier modes of integration.
Today we release the results of our second annual IoT Developer Survey. Like last year it provides an interesting insight into how developers are building IoT solutions.
This year the Eclipse IoT Working Group partnered with IEEE IoT and the AGILE-IoT research project to expand the scope and respondent pool for the survey. Thanks to this partnership, we had 528 participants in the survey, up from 392 last year. The partnership also allowed us to analyze the data to look for any significant difference between the different IoT communities.
When internet of things gained hype, everyone but especially application developers got interested in it. Internet and mobile applications are already one of the major sections of development employing more than a billion developers across the globe. But with internet of things devices there is a twist in the tale.
The internet of clothes might soon be a reality, if a deal announced today (Apr. 18) between Avery Dennison, a major manufacturer of apparel and footwear care-labels, and Evrythng, a London internet of things startup, succeeds. The partnership will result in 10 billion items of clothing getting connected to the internet, the companies say.
One of the reasons why IoT has gained momentum in the recent past is the rise of cloud services. Though the concept of M2M existed for over a decade, organizations never tapped into the rich insights derived from the datasets generated by sensors and devices. Existing infrastructure was just not ready to deal with the massive scale demanded by the connected devices architecture. That’s where cloud becomes an invaluable resource for enterprises.
Digital currency enthusiasts paying attention to Ether may have noticed the price has started to go up again in the past few days. Although there is no concise reason as to why this would happen, there has been some relatively good news for Ethereum users in recent days.
