Cisco: How is Your Organization Intersecting with IoT?
At the Cisco Toronto Innovation Centre, we’re always looking to the future, including how the Internet of Things (IoT) industry is transforming. We see this firsthand as our centre provides a “home” for our Cisco sales teams to partner with customers, academia, and start-ups. Together, teams rely on our Toronto Centre, and other centres around the world, to co-develop scalable solutions with significant business outcomes that can be taken to a broader global industry.
It’s exciting to see IoT’s increased interconnection of devices as a means to the end of solving business problems, with specific solutions for each vertical. Companies that offer IoT can either be vendors with horizontal capabilities, such as Cisco with technology offerings like networking infrastructure and analytics, or vendors with market-specific solutions, such as remote asset management.
While there will likely be big disruptions in the consumer IoT market in the long run, IoT is mainly implemented on the business side today.
With the first wave of IoT, the increased data generated to be converted into solutions drove a shift in cloud architecture design. Instead of the old centralized cloud model, Cisco pivoted to use distributed clouds to process data close to the source.
Developments in networking technology, such as the adoption of 5G for greater bandwidth, and the incorporation of security into our technology and behaviour are needed to continue to grow the IoT solutions Cisco supports. With IoT technology, companies must work with the government to develop regulations and best practices.
