Transcript of The Internet of Things - An Introduction

What is this Internet of Things (IoT)?
What is driving it?
The Internet of Things
All Sounds good! Are there any risks?
Let's delve a little deeper...
A few more examples...
Expanded data storage capabilities
Evolution of cloud computing / big data tools
Increasing processor performance / efficiency
Forces of Transformation
Fundamental business model shift in which products evolve to integrated ‘bundles’ of services capable of delivering new value continuously throughout the customer experience life cycle
Pervasive networks of Things embedded with sensors and individually addressable to enable sophisticated monitoring, control, and communication
Software Intensive Products
Integrated systems of hardware and software capable of sophisticated human-to-machine interaction, diagnostics, and service data capture with additional value delivered through software enhancements
Efficiently tailoring products and services to accommodate regional and personal preferences, the growing influence of consumers, and the comsumerization of IT
Enforcement of governmental rules, non-governmental organisational policies, and industry standards related to environment, health, safety, and trade
The general shrinking of the world driven by technology that eliminates economic and geographical divisions and opens new markets
Replacing analog product and service information with a fully accurate virtual representation
It will
physical industries as
everyday objects
become increasingly ‘

Evolution of connectivity
Ubiquity of Connectivity
Introduction of IPv6 Address scheme
Miniaturization and efficiency of components
Software development frameworks
Declining price of processors, sensors & components
Computing Infrastructure
Communication Infrastructure (wired and wireless)
Internet of Things
Common Standards
(Basically to where all
are interconnected).
Internet connectivity
moves beyond
traditional devices like desktop and laptop computers, smartphones and tablets to a diverse range of devices and
everyday things
that utilize embedded technology to communicate and interact with the external environment, all via the Internet
Refers to the
of the Internet to the
It will drive new opportunities and new business models. There is a
'connected economy'
that’s coming.
Many devices in the IoT will be
‘things’, such as sensors, tags, widgets … they won’t even have screens. 'Invisible IoT'
Advances in production technology & chip architecture enable manufactures to embed components without diminishing the user experience
Economies of scale have depressed the cost of sensors and processors
Demand for software delivered inside and alongside the product and the business applications needed to deliver value-add solutions
Technical innovation -> increased data creation
90% of the world's data has been created in the last two years alone

Intel's Galileo board (packing Intel's Quark X1000 system-on-chip) acting as developmental hardware for new low-power gear for wearables and "internet of things" devices
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) industry expected to grow 41% through 2016 to become a 24 billion dollar industry
Expanding and emerging wireless technology standards (e.g. 4G LTE and ZigBee)
Google Loon Project (Balloon-powered Internet for everyone - floating massive balloons to more than 50,000 feet)
cost and power efficient wireless networking over long distances
IPv6 address pool to support the exponential growth of the IoT
128-bit Internet scheme offers 3.4x1038 (340
trillion trillion trillion
) unique addresses
Chip makers are designing connectivity directly into the hardware (e.g. SSL encryption), reducing the demands on software code
Android Wear:
A variant of Android that extends the Google software platform to a new generation of wearable devices
It is employed by a number of manufacturers for retail smartwatches (such as LG's G Watch and Motorola's circular Moto 360)

Dell also has a research division
Jai Menon: VP and Head of Dell Research, Chief Research Officer at Dell
OEM Solutions Group can help architect an IoT plan, mapping out the ideal infrastructure that lets a business start small, build fast and connect what matters. A wide range of customers, ranging from the embedded to telecommunications industries, will benefit from the chance to test IoT solutions.
As an E2E solution provider, Dell is well placed to take advantage of what is needed for IoT Solutions

Dell OEM Solutions partners with organizations to architect and test new Internet of Things solutions and devices
Dell and Intel established an Internet of Things (IoT) Lab (Located in the Dell Silicon Valley Solution Center in Santa Clara, Calif.) to partner with customers to help them explore, test and deploy IoT solutions that help drive business outcomes and accelerate time to market.
Dell and Intel customers will be able to build, modify and architect new IoT solutions on active bench space within the new lab. Customers can demonstrate large workloads, connectivity, and data modeling and extraction on Dell’s end-to-end solutions, including Dell storage as well as Dell PowerEdge servers and blade servers utilizing Dell Software solutions. As a result, Dell OEM customers can significantly speed up their time to market with new IoT solutions and devices.
- see new opportunities?
Limerick will have the first Dell IoT Lab in EMEA!
