The Internet of Things (IoT) has received an incredible amount of press as of late. But, most of that has been associated with consumer electronics in the form of wearables and home monitoring devices like the Nest Thermostat. While those are worthwhile markets, the majority of the money will be involved with machine-to-machine communications in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). What is the nature of the IIoT? How is it different from the consumer IoT? And, what makes it such a big target? In this session, we discuss the flow of data from the edge devices to the cloud and why the big industry players like Intel, IBM and others are so interested in this market.
