@ThingsExpo: Five Ways Cisco’s Internet of Everything Will Change the Earth’s Trajectory

The Internet of Everything is all about connected objects, from the mundane to the magnificent

Cisco has been ridding itself of consumer products for some time, which is why it was surprising to see Cisco at the International Consumer Electronics Show this year. According to CEO John Chambers, however, the new IoE (Internet of Everything) plan at Cisco is set to change the trajectory of everyone on Earth, in both the consumer and the professional arenas.

Here are some ways IoE is going to impact the world:

  1. Bigger than anything that’s come before. Now, don’t get the wrong idea: Cisco isn’t going to sell IoE to consumers directly. But Internet of Everything will impact our daily lives in ways we can’t yet possibly imagine. From improved efficiency in the industrial arena to personalized retail encounters to the ability to control an entire building’s infrastructure with one simply smartphone app, IoE means big.
  2. Getting it right. This new technology is based on the idea that, with the rapid growth in data as well as our ability to gather and analyze it, that data needs to be handled properly. That means getting the right data to the right person or the right piece of equipment in the right way.
  3. Nothing is inane. Collection and analysis of data means there really is no limit to the potential for Internet of Everything. For example, even something as seemingly innocuous as garbage cans with built-in sensors could create an increase in efficiency in the billions of dollars.
  4. Efficiency is key. IoE really is all about using data to improve efficiency. Those trash bin sensors can alert waste management to let them know whether a bin is ready to be emptied, or whether there are hazmat-related materials inside. Parking meters can be modified to adjust rates based on peak demand.
  5. The future is now. Imagine, for a moment, a shirt that tells you when your body temperature is elevated, warning you that you might have a fever, or the proverbial “smart refrigerator” that actually takes its own inventory, sending a grocery order to the supermarket, where it will be waiting for you to walk in and pick up.

The Internet of Everything is all about connected objects, from the mundane to the magnificent, and improving how we interact with those objects.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
