Smart City initiatives: new business opportunities
Internet of Everything, the future of smart cities.
The Internet of Things represents the next evolution of smart cities. Objects and places are now connected to the Internet and interact with each other without any human intermediation. Cisco estimates that 50 million objects will be connected by 2020 for an added economic value of $19 billion.
Potential business opportunities are infinite: natural resources, energy, transportation, urbanism, health and safety, insurance, etc. Whether you wish to aggregate real-time video surveillance streams of traffic or to monitor the water pressure in a hydroelectric power plant, business opportunities are endless.
Multiple data types
Welcome the universal adaptor.

Each of these terminals pushes data in a wide range of forms and units of measure: logs, timestamps, image feeds, weight, temperature.
