Daniel Rowinski: How The Internet Of Things Will Evolve Just Like The Internet

The Internet took a lot of time to grow up.

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.

Ben Algaze: How smart cities (will) work

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?

Gary Picariello: Unexpected ways the Internet of Things is changing the world

The Internet of Things (IoT) is about to explode.

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.

Forbes: How Companies Are Making The Internet Of Things Easier To Adopt

The Internet of Things (IoT) is only growing.

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.

Ian Skerrett: Profile of an IoT Developer: Results of the IoT Developer Survey

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.

Networks Asia staff: The Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data will be significant trends in next 12 months: survey

The Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data will be significant trends, at least for some resellers, within 24 months, according to a survey conducted by Brocade among its channel partners.

Within the next year, 29 percent believe IoT will be a significant trend, although 40 percent believe it will be a significant trend only for some specialized resellers.

Janakiram MSV: Is Fog Computing The Next Big Thing In Internet of Things?

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.
