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.
