It’s quite simple to take our connectedness for granted, isn’t it? We even don’t think about which innovation is behind our connections, but don’t mind boggling when you are actually considering how much they are getting connected and they has revolutionized nearly every facet of life over the past two decades. More amazing thing is the fact that we have just getting started. I like most recent installment of highly anticipated annual “Internet Trends” presentation which described it was still being in “spring training.”
It took us more than 20 years to have two billion people connected from the Internet, but we estimated the next two billion of peoples will connect to the network in less than half of that time. The growth of those connected “things” is even more incredible. Counting to 2009, the number of things connected to the Internet surpassed the number of connected people we began to experience what some call the “Internet of Things.”
There will be about 15 billion devices connected by 2015, and around 40 billion by 2020, according to the Cisco Internet Business Solutions Group. But despite all these connections, estimation is more than 99 percent of all physical objects will have one day join that network even it still unconnected. Think about that – we have only just begun to connect the unconnected and see what will happen when a full one percent of things are actually connected for while 10 percent get connected either more or less?
We are rapidly beginning to experience what we call the “Internet of Everything,” which includes the Internet of Things as a subset. the Internet of Everything is the intelligent connection of people, process, data, and things on the network. There is an important enabler of the Internet of Everything which is the network intelligence that fuels the manageability, controllability and scalability required to support this incredible growth in connections.
With every people, process, piece of data, or thing that comes online, the connection possibilities between all those elements grows exponentially. The Internet of Everything makes all those connections getting more relevant and valuable. It’s not only the act of getting connected – or even the number of connections that creates the value, but also the outcomes the connections make possible.
The proliferation of mobile networking and the evolution the cloud play critical roles in the Internet of Everything, since the development of IPv6 does. Who are able to create the processes needed is the rise of big data represents incredible value for those, to extract value from data in motion and act on it instantly. Since people and context aware machines gain access to more actionable information, new capabilities will be the one of result, also richer experiences, and unprecedented value for individuals, businesses, communities and countries everywhere. The “network effect” of the Internet of Everything will be also very powerful thing, we know the true impact of which I believe we won’t fully understand for those some time.
Our acknowledge are very real risks and challenges inherent from the Internet of Everything. In order to maintain security and protect privacy in a hyper-connected world, there is a couple of the complex challenges we will face. But face them we must known Internet of Everything is upon us. All of us should embrace it and resolutely influence its development to ward positive outcomes for society.
The Internet of Everything will create much more economic value as well as we believed, it represents also vast opportunities for businesses which effectively adapt to take advantage of it. We market transitions and believe this will be the biggest transition we have ever experienced before, making the initial build-out of the Internet truly feel like “spring training.”
The network is a vital necessity for all those connection in the Internet of Everything, from each core to each edge to the cloud, means it was also an incredible opportunity for Huawei or some companies. We’ve been in the business of connecting the unconnected for more than 25 years, and – thanks for large part of working so closely with our customers and partners from the world – are uniquely positioned to help all the businesses, governments and other organizations are doing best position themselves to maximize the business value and positive our benefits they captured from the Internet of Everything. From many different ways, the development of the Internet of Everything is a unifying force, to create tighter and tighter connections between foundational priorities: leadership in the core business (routing, switching, and associated services), which includes comprehensive security and mobility solutions; collaboration; data center virtualization and cloud; video; and architectures for business transformation.
Everybody has the innovation engine, the talent and experience, the open dialog with all the customers, with world’s best ecosystem of our partners and our resellers, and the broadest portfolio of industry-leading networking solutions, services, and business architectures to back it up. The truth is we know as a big data, a cloud computing,a BYOD and mobility, and a new breed of software applications continue to shape the foreseeable future, networks will require ever more intelligence – not less – in order to effectively cope with the increased complexity. It creating order out of chaos what Cisco does best, and frankly, nobody we have never seen those more business opportunities than we are doing today.
Unformately, the Internet of Everything is bigger than any company like Cisco, it will require unprecedented cooperation between so many companies and organizations to involve that matter. Ultimately, all of us will believe that the success and impact of the Internet of Everything will be measured by the extent to which whom are able to harness it to benefit humanity. With this in mind, we couldn’t be more excited to see what the future holds. Tomorrow starts here from IOT.
