Connected Car Myths: Busted

Shaun Kirby, Director of Automotive and Connected Car
Cisco Systems

The connected car is becoming one of the most exciting and widely discussed “things” in the Internet of Things (IoT). A recent study shows that the market will reach $52 billion this year, and that number is expected to grow to $155 billion by 2022. But, due to the rapid emergence and evolution of connected car technology, there is a great deal of uncertainty about these vehicles, what they can do, the data they generate and how secure they really are.

What the Internet of Things Will Look Like 10 Years From Now

Tom Raftery, VP & Global Internet of Things Evangelist

I was asked recently where do you see the Internet of Things in 10 years? It is a cool question to think about, and to frame it properly it helps to think back to what the world was like 10 years ago, and how far we have come since then. Ten years ago, in 2007 Apple launched the iPhone. This was the first real smartphone, and it changed completely how we interact with information. Continue reading

IoT in Public Sector Applications

Will Winn,SVP of IoT Solutions

Representing a global opportunity of $4.6 trillion over the next ten years, the Internet of Things (IoT) holds many applications in the public sector, which includes municipalities at the state, county and city levels, as well as the education space, both K-12 and higher education. Leveraging an IoT sensor-based network enables organizations to gain information about what is happening in their vicinity in real-time or near real-time. This information can take the form of building occupancy data, analytics from video surveillance cameras or integration with a public safety network, for example. The data can ultimately lead to increased productivity, new streams of revenue and enhanced citizen experiences. Continue reading

What Does 5G Mean for IoT?

Chris Anderson, Vice President of Engineering

The universal goals of 5G are to decrease latency, provide at least a 10 times speed increase over LTE, and service up to a million Internet of Things (IoT) devices per square kilometer. To meet these goals, 5G networks will look a lot different than any existing 3G or 4G network. Deploying technology solutions in the millimeter wave spectrum has completely different requirements and challenges from anything currently commercially deployed. Continue reading
