Today’s IoT topology is a hodge-podge of standards, communication mechanisms, software, and hardware.
Look at a typical home IoT environment that requires a unique hub for every IoT device. This results in complexity and interoperability challenges for widespread adoption and support. Sensors will continue to reduce in size, power, and cost but will remain constrained as to how many features one can bind into a small compute device. Communication standards at the Edge range from WiFi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Zwave, Thread, ANT, and the list is growing. What is needed are smarter Edge devices that provide the services of communication routing, security, aggregation, and resiliency.
Join this webcast with Perry Lea, Principal Architect and IoT Strategist, for insight into the “wild west” of IoT interoperability, recommendations and predictions on how smart gateways will evolve in the near future.
