Five years ago, analysts estimated 50 billion devices by 2020.
With a new decade just around the corner and the number of connected devices sitting at the single digit mark, you might think this missed projection signals failure but really it is just a symptom of overhype. Actually, IoT growth shows no signs of slowing down.
Research from Arm estimates one trillion devices by 2035.
In this new issue of Tech Trends, we pull focus to the next phase in IoT – hyperscale device and data management – managing devices and the data they create to generate valuable insights without the costs running away with themselves will be a massive challenge and absolutely essential for success.

With the rising number of IoT devices, which is expected to surpass the 20 billion mark by next year, there are a lot of big changes to anticipate. (more…)
In August 2016, the Mirai botnet dramatically brought concerns around the security of Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices to centre stage. That botnet and associated malware family used devices such as home routers and IP-enabled video cameras to launch a series of high-profile distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks globally.

The Internet of Things is celebrating a milestone birthday this year, says Charles Eagan, CTO at BlackBerry. Back in 1999, British technologist Kevin Ashton coined the term Internet of Things (IoT) while developing sensor and identification technologies at MIT. Today, as the now-ubiquitous term turns 20 years old, I can’t help but reflect on how far the concept has come in such a short time. (more…)
Smart City applications and services seem to be expanding rapidly – smart parking, smart street lighting, climate monitoring, transportation and traffic management are only a few of the categories. One application that is growing in importance and popularity is that of video security. (more…)
