“Is being a doctor enough or will the future doctor must also be a technologist?” Dave Evans, Chief Futurist, Cisco, kicked off Cisco’s Community for Connected Health Summit today at HIMSS 2013. With voice technology, augmented reality, gesture recognition and digital signage being implemented in the healthcare industry at a rapid rate, doctors are being pushed to their limit to understand and utilize these technologies to better communicate with providers, hospital staff and patients alike.
Evans stated that the exponential growth of the Internet is leading to more than 50 billion connected things that can communicate amongst one another, and it’s not a matter of ‘if’ the healthcare industry must adapt, but rather ‘when’ it’s possible to do so. There is an information explosion taking place and it’s not going to end anytime soon. By the end of 2013, we will create more information every 10 minutes than we did in all of human history, as of 2008. The zettaflood will place huge demands on the network. Demand optimized architectures for security, quality of service, and efficiency will be especially important for the healthcare industry. Read More »

When the history of the Internet of Everything (IoE) is written, its success or failure will be determined by answering one question. How did IoE benefit humanity? In the end, nothing else matters.
With this in mind, let’s look at two examples of how IoE will benefit people, both today and tomorrow.
Today—Transforming the World’s Cities
To revitalize the world’s largest cities, City24/7 — a company committed to making public communications more accessible to everyone, everywhere — in collaboration with Cisco IBSG and the City of New York has launched an interactive platform that integrates information from open government programs, local businesses, and citizens to provide meaningful and powerful knowledge anytime, anywhere, on any device. In short, City24/7 delivers the information people need to know, where and when it helps them most.
Located at bus stops, train stations, major entryways, shopping malls, and sports facilities, City24/7 Smart Screens incorporate touch, voice, and audio technology to deliver a wide array of hyper-local (about two square city blocks) information, services, and offerings in real time. The Smart Screens can also be accessed via Wi-Fi on nearby smartphones, tablets, and laptop computers.
The overarching goals of the City24/7 Smart Screens are to: Read More »

It is important to understand that the real value of the Internet of Everything (IoE) lies in both the number and value of connections.
To illustrate this point, consider the following scenario. When your car becomes connected to the Internet of Everything in the near future, it will simply increase the number of things on the Internet by 1. Now, think about the numerous other elements to which your car could be connected—other cars, stoplights, your home, service personnel, weather reports, warning signs, and even the road itself. It is from these multiple connections that your driving experience will become better than it is today. You will be safer, more informed and entertained, arrive on time, and even save on fuel and maintenance costs as you travel to your destination.
It’s the connections that matter most. Read More »

The future is here. To quote William Shatner in the original Star Trek Series “We are going where no man has gone before.”
Dave Evans, Cisco’s Chief Futurist, recently posted an infographic in his blog that detailed the fascinating growth of the “Internet of things” – ATMs, kiosks, vending machines, smart meters, digital signage, refrigerator… And then he posted the question: “With this increase, how will you prepare your network for the future? “
Well… Today, Cisco announced the latest addition to the core routing infrastructure portfolio: the Cisco Integrated Services Router (ISR) 819 Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Gateway as an answer to this question. This is the first step towards getting your network ready to face the barrage of machines that need 3G wireless network connectivity to your enterprise/corporate network.
