A Cambrian Explosion in IoT evolution

| By sumithra
    Studying the fossil record, evolutionary biologists have theorized an event called the Cambrian explosion. During a relatively short period, the diversity of animal life seems to have rapidly increased from predominately single-cell organisms to a much wider variety of complex organisms. In many respects, the Internet of Things (IoT) seems like the evolution of previous telemetry and industrial networking technologies. However, the IoT’s potential to converge our physical and digital worlds justifies its place at or near the top of the hyped technology list. In 2016, we will witness the beginning of a new era, transformed by a Cambrian-like stage of explosive IoT evolution. During t…
