Cisco: The Internet of Things to make a massive impact within 10 years

BARCELONA, Feb 28 — Cisco’s CEO John Chambers is betting big that the “internet of everything” is not only going to be the next big thing, but a thing that within a decade will be 10 times bigger than the internet in terms of impact.

The connected home, connected car and connected city are all coming and when they arrive they’re going to revolutionise the way we live. That was the message from Chambers when he took to the stage at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week.

To highlight how fast the world is already moving towards internet interconnections, he said: “When I came to Cisco there were about a thousand things connected to the Internet, now there are 10 billion; by the end of the decade there will be 500 billion.”

Figures published by the GSMA earlier this week show that from cars to smart meters and smart cities, are already 195 million objects other than phones accessing the internet via SIM cards and the figure is growing rapidly.

Meanwhile, the latest Strategy Analytics data, published yesterday, shows that in 2013 alone, 1.9 billion wi-fi-enabled consumer electronics devices — so everything from music streaming systems to TVs — were shipped and that current estimates place the number of wi-fi-enabled devices (other than computers) in the average home at seven.

A recent Wi-Fi Alliance study, published in January, shows that wi-fi connectivity has already become a purchasing criterion for 77 per cent of consumers when choosing new products, or replacing existing devices, for use around the home.

In his talk, Chambers also noted that attitudes towards the concept of having everything from crossing junctions to thermostats online have markedly changed over recent years. Before, he would have to force customers into listening to him when he wanted to sell the concept of the internet of things, but now clients are offering to take him out to dinner in order to discuss the same subject.

The Wi-fi Alliance’s study also reflects this sea change. Three quarters of the 1000 US consumers questioned believe that all homes will soon be equipped with smart technology, and 93 per cent believe that having full remote control of the appliances and systems in their homes will have a positive impact on their daily lives.

As Mardien Drew, head of the digital incubation team at Kantar, the research and insights company, says on how the subject has been promoted and showcased at this year’s Mobile World Congress: “It feels like we’re just experiencing the logical next step. For example, three years ago we had the connected house; two years ago we had the connected street and this year, the connected city. None of it is particularly new to MWC, but the ‘hype-cycle’ is slow and it takes a long time for these things to come to market.” —  AFP-Relaxnews

The digital age is changing the world around us every day, and technology is advancing in huge leaps: just compare the number of people with mobile phones at the beginning of the millennium and now. One of the heralds of a new era is the Internet of things. Many have already heard about the concepts of smart house or smart city. But the Internet of Things is not necessarily about facial recognition cameras and drones everywhere: the technology is simpler and closer than it might seem. Technologies of machine-to-machine interaction and the Internet of things in housing and communal services are used in all components: in energy and water supply, elevator facilities, security systems, garbage collection, repair of facilities. The technology works according to the following scheme: sensors, smart devices, devices with M2M SIM cards are installed in residential buildings and social infrastructure facilities. When the control center (IoT platform or M2M Connectivity Management platform) regards the data collected by the sensors as a deviation from the norm, it gives the command to fix the "malfunction": it's time to take out the trash, replace the light bulb or activate the fire extinguishing system.
