How the Internet of Things Really Works

Radiocasts | October 15, 2014 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: IoT.

The Internet thrived when the browser was first invented, HTML was the language of every web page, and HTTP was the protocol every browser and app used to talk to the Internet. It all worked.

But now the Internet of Things (IoT) requires a never-before-seen, uniquely powerful new infrastructure to accommodate huge volumes of data coming from thousands of entities and devices like smart homes, smart cities, smart refrigerators, smart cars.

How are businesses building a new communications fabric uniquely suited for IoT?

The experts speak.

Dan McNamara, Keytree: “We could incorporate Internet protocol (IP) into nearly everything. There’s no reason why the Internet shouldn’t be in every single appliance.” (Geoff Mulligan, chair of the IP for Smart Objects Alliance)

Denis King, Solace Systems: “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.” (Wizard of Oz)

Christine Hertzog, Smart Grid Library: “The communications solutions enabling IoT traffic need to be involved in protecting the ongoing security and privacy of data.”
