Connected everything is predicted to be one of the top game changers at two exciting events this month: Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and Embedded World in Nürnberg. Following on today’s explosion of mobile connectivity, Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication evolves into Internet of things (IoT), which in turn is one of the latest technology trends that make up Internet of Everything (IoE). M2M (you might as well call it connected devices or embedded systems) traffic can increase 22 times over in the next 5 years impacting nearly every industry.
As you can see from our news section, we have joined recently formed AllSeen Alliance, an industry wide organisation aiming to fast track development of device-to-device communication. The collaboration expands on the mentioned above “Internet of Everything”, adding functionality that spans across various CE brands including automotive, connected home and enterprise. IoE goes beyond the IoT connecting people, processes, data and things to the internet in a way that creates new opportunities and efficiencies. AllJoyn™, AllSeen ready-to-go and interoperable by design framework, invites developers to create peer-to-peer and multiscreen experiences by enabling the apps to connect, control and share resources with other apps and devices via its software development network.
Looking at the forecasts from two global market intelligence companies: ABI Research and IDC one can say that the next years will be dedicated to the expansion of smart home and connected home devices. ABI in the Connected World of Tomorrow estimates the number of wireless connected devices and connected car units to reach 18.8 billion and 22.5 million respectively by 2015. Going even further, IDC predicts expansion to 212-billion connected devices by 2020 in a market worth more than $8.9 trillion.
Here at Tuxera, we support the shared vision of digital interoperability developing solutions that enable seamless data portability across platforms. One of our latest product portfolio additions, media streaming application, allows users to interact with different smart devices in the home network, streaming content stored locally and online in the cloud and services such as YouTube, Facebook and others.
