Industry heavyweights come together to standardize the Internet of Things

Industry heavyweights come together to standardize the Internet of Things | Web of Things | Scoop.it

AT&T, Cisco, GE, IBM and Intel are the latest companies to band together with the aim of standardizing interoperability across smart machines and ultimately, drive adoption of an Internet of Things. Announced last week, the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) is a not-for-profit open membership group created to establish common frameworks for development of inter-connected digital and physical worlds.

While the notion of device-to-device communication holds great potential across a range of industries, with different manufacturers using different engineering standards, development has been slow-moving in the eyes of some.

The Internet of Things: Buzzword or Big Business?

The Internet of Things: Buzzword or Big Business? | Web of Things | Scoop.it
With trillions of end-point 'things', device cloud platforms, subnets for humans, machines, sensor networks and rampant innovation being fostered globally, the Internet of Things could have the same disruptive potential as the Internet itself.

 

Building on the foundation of the IoT, the Cisco (CSCO) vision is the Internet of Everything, which it defines as bringing together people, process, data, and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before. Cisco believes that there is a $14.4 trillion value at stake in this market, which combines the increased revenues and lower costs that is created or will migrate among companies and industries from 2013 to 2022. The factors driving the trend include mainstreaming of sensors, cloud computing and the migration of everything to IP networks.

Cisco’s Lew Tucker On The Internet Of Everything And The Tie To An App-Centric World

Cisco’s Lew Tucker On The Internet Of Everything And The Tie To An App-Centric World | Web of Things | Scoop.it

Cisco’s Lew Tucker stood onstage today at Cloud Connect and pitched the networking giant’s “Internet of Everything,” an app-centric world that will be worth $14.5 trillion over the next couple of years. Whereas the Internet of Things is all the objects in our world, Tucker says the IoE is the smart grids and, really, the entire supply chain and its transformation.

 

Big enterprise companies are good at this kind of thing. They talk about huge market opportunities and great futures with tremendous upside, but it’s a question of how nimble they can be with startups innovating so fast. Tucker, however, gets credit for explaining how an app-centric world ties in with software-defined networking (SDN) and the switch from traditional, heavyweight systems of records (ERP, CRM) to systems of engagement (apps, lightweight services that provide feedback loops).

 

Tucker, citing Cisco’s own study, says there is $4.9 trillion in immediate opportunity through the development of such things as smart grids, smart factories, smart buildings and smart cities.

...

The IoE also provides a context for the ways we interact with this deep fabric of connected things. An ERP system will become less relevant for companies. Instead, systems of engagement will put us right in the center of a feedback loop that allows us to measure our own selves and in the process connect to all the other smart aspects of our life. That might be in the city of San Francisco when trying to find a parking spot or the smart factory where we order our data-generated personal things.

IoE (Internet of everything) annonce-t-il la fin des ERP et autres systèmes CRM au profit d'un  "systems of engagement (apps, lightweight services that provide feedback loops)" ou les apps. sont reines. Le principes :  les data sont déversées dans un lake par les "things"...le lake est scruté en temps réels par des applications "légères" (genre celles des smartphones) qui elles mêmes génèrent de l'intelligence qu'elles déversent à leurs tours...c'est en tout cas ce qu'annonce certain.

Future business

Future business | Web of Things | Scoop.it

Human knowledge doubled every century until the 1900s, says David Evans (technology giant Cisco’s resident futurist), but nowadays it is every two to three years. Some 70 per cent of all information has been created since the internet began. In 50 years’ time, he says, 95 per cent of everything humans know will have been discovered in those 50 years. The 21st century will be the equivalent to 20,000 years of human progress. The internet is becoming an internet of things. Somewhere between 2008 and 2009, we crossed a line where there were more connected devices online than people. We have about two devices per person now, he says, and in the next decade that will rise to seven. By the end of the decade, there will be 50 billion “things” online – things that can communicate with each other.

 

Or with us. There’s already a pill that contains a tiny chip that can give feedback about the inside of the patient to a physician, he says.

 

With all these objects and devices, we’ll be creating massive amounts of information – the latest term of measurement needed to enable people to talk about such amounts is the zettabyte, a data equivalent of the content of a stack of books stretching from the Earth to Pluto . . . 20 times, he says.

"America’s Intel and Britain’s ARM have long dominated different bits of the global chip market. Now each is attacking the other’s stronghold"

 

"The battle is not just about dividing up territories already occupied; it is also about finding new lands to conquer. Both firms are keen to stake claims on the largely uncolonised and still somewhat notional terrain known as the “internet of things”: the myriad processors in industrial machinery, consumer goods and infrastructure, ever more of which will communicate with each other and with distant computers. Cisco, a giant American maker of networking gear, estimates that by 2015 there may be almost 15 billion internet-connected devices, up from 7.5 billion in 2010. Whereas the market for more phones and other personal computing devices is limited by the number of persons the planet has to offer, things, being more numerous than people, provide a lot more long-term room for growth."

The Internet of Things – this is where we're going

The Internet of Things – this is where we're going | Web of Things | Scoop.it

snippet: What are we connecting?
"The Internet of Things is not just about devices that are directly connected to the internet. Sensors and identifiers such as RFID (radio frequency identification) tags also provide data through an intermediary such as a mobile phone, RFID reader, or internet-connected base station.

 

This means an RFID-tagged cereal box may be considered as one of the “things” on the internet. Theoretically, the RFID would have been used in conjunction with other sensors to record the full life-history of that particular box of cereal, from the time it was manufactured to how it was transported and how long it took for it to be empty."

Is Cisco’s Forecast of 50 Billion Internet-Connected Things by 2020 Too Conservative?

Is Cisco’s Forecast of 50 Billion Internet-Connected Things by 2020 Too Conservative? | Web of Things | Scoop.it

According to Cisco, there are an estimated 1.5 trillion things in the world (no mention of exactly how they counted those things, but let’s go with it) and approximately 8.7 billion, or 0.6%, were connected in 2012. The firm expects a 25% annualized decrease in price to connect between 2012 and 2020 and a matching 25% annualized increase in connectivity. That means we can expect 50 billion connected things by 2020, with 50% of those connections happening in the final three years of the decade.

Cisco: $500B in Internet of Everything Opportunities Wasted

Cisco’s extension of the concept of the Internet of Things, or sensor-driven, machine-to-machine Internet traffic into a kind of anything-to-anything network of free-flying data was first and foremost on the company’s mind at its gathering in Boston. And while the company has big numbers to back that up – its figures estimate $14.4 trillion in net profit will be driven over the next 10 years by this movement – it seems very much like a “watch this space” message. Many solution providers that Channelnomics talked to at the show were intrigued by the possibilities, but saw little applicability to their business today.

However, the company’s latest research on the subject may change those eyes from glazing to popped, as the company says that across 21 different use cases for the Internet of Everything (IoE), companies around the world will capture $614 billion in value this year alone. But the bigger news for channel partners is how much is being left on the table. Cisco’s study says that businesses feel there’s another $544 billion this year that could be captured through Internet of Everything types of solutions, but ultimately will not be.

 

Cisco president of sales and development Rob Lloyd suggests that the challenge "involves changing things like business models and company cultures, dismantling command-and-control structures on which many companies are built and establishing processes and systems whereby information is fed to the right people at the right time, and those people are empowered to act on it as quickly as possible."

The Internet of Things: how it'll revolutionise your devices

The Internet of Things: how it'll revolutionise your devices | Web of Things | Scoop.it
The age of the machines has arrived. We discover how the Internet of Things is changing how our gadgets behave.


It is suggested that consumers will be interested in "passive environmental monitoring, remote management and connectivity to everything" because it's is faster, cheaper and better."


Impacts on transportation are described:


"Is a city's free rent-a-bike scheme being used? Stick a RFID chip on the handlebars and someone can plot exactly where those bikes go, when, and who with. At night streetlights could switch on only when a car approaches – thus saving electricity – but more impressively, data could be collected to map urban travel patterns."


A Cisco-powered concept called U.Life is being developed as a global template in New Songdo City, 40 miles south of Seoul in South Korea.  The

city wide wired broadband network allows its 60,000 residents to use their smartphones, tablets and other touchscreen devices to control their homes' heating, lighting and air-con.

How the 'internet of things' could radically change local government

"The IoT is linked to a number of other emerging ideas, such as smart cities, pervasive sensing and machine-to-machine communication – all of which are being tentatively explored by businesses and government. Regardless of what name it is given, this merger of the physical and virtual worlds could allow local authorities to deliver much more efficient services, reducing waste and unlocking reams of useful data: think water mains loaded with clusters of sensors that can alert engineers to leaks or blockages, or lampposts that can detect light levels and save energy by turning themselves off. Sensors could even be used to check the effectiveness of waste removal and recycling services, or help the police locate stolen goods."
