IoT, mobility and the cognitive computing revolution
Mobility is needed for the Internet of Things. We need mobile networks that the objects use to communicate and we need mobile devices to control the “things”. Also, we want to be able to collect and read the data the connected objects send us. Therefore, we need screens. So, even though, we could also argue that we could use voice to control connected devices, we still need some kind of display to read the data, unless it is read to us – like with smart voices like Alexa or Siri. But not everything can be understood in voice… often we need to see it, i.e. when we look at maps or plans or pictures. In order to find out more about how mobility and IoT go together, you can visit the “Enabling IoT Platforms” session that is described in the article below at Mobile World Congress, 27th February – 2nd March.
Mobility and the Internet of Things are inextricably linked. By 2020, there will be 30 billion “things” connected to the Internet, and most will rely on wireless and cellular networks to send and receive data. We are talking about a deluge of data, with the amount of data created in the world annually reaching 180 Zettabytes in 2025. It’s no exaggeration to say that the primary purpose of mobile networks will soon be all about moving IoT data and delivering it safely and securely to the location where it will be analyzed and consumed.
For this reason, the Internet of Things will be one of the biggest stars 27 February – 2 March at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. And I’ll be part of the Enabling IoT Platforms session that will cover how important it is to make sure both of these two world-changing technologies work in concert, with interoperability and security serving as a foundation for their mutual success. If you have business that…
