Our ability to connect is the root of our ability to communicate, innovate and progress. But with the explosive amount of data needed for both new devices and applications already today, we need to invent, build and share solutions for future challenges that have yet to arrive.
As the Internet expands into tens of billions of new devices, the need for things and places to communicate reliably has never been greater. That’s why we need optimised, more intuitive ways for smarter devices to connect and exchange data.
The Internet of Things (IoT) describes the connection of devices — any devices — to the internet using embedded software and sensors to communicate, collect and exchange data with one another. With IoT, the world is wide open, offering a virtually endless array of opportunities and connections at home, at work and on the road.
To strengthen the ecosystem of devices within the Internet of Things (IoT), we need to enable intelligence and interoperability within all corners of daily life .
Digital Platforms for Internet of Things
Today’s services at home, in an aircraft, train, ship, hospital, military base have several challenges. Networks can be slow and / or unreliable, bandwidth can be changing or costly, data can be personal and critical. Today most services rely on network connection between personal / end device (IoT) directly connected with cloud / internet based services.
The key concepts of this services are individualization and global reach.
A world with ubiquitous connectivity will never exist. Traffic quotas, allocated bandwidth, availability of connectivity, storage space, computational power, data security, privacy and many other resources and requirements cannot be taken for granted. Those under our control must be carefully allocated and controlled, while systems we build must be tolerant of disruptions in those we do not control.
