Creating an App-Centric Network for the Internet of Things

    Wearables

    From heartbeat-sensing fitness bands to step-counting smartphone apps, wearables are the public face of IoT. A portable device is connected to a service that aggregates data and, increasingly, shares it across social media, with a doctor or even a gym. The cloud-based services also push back analytics, motivational graphics and music, as well as location-based maps.

    Wearables

    From heartbeat-sensing fitness bands to step-counting smartphone apps, wearables are the public face of IoT. A portable device is connected to a service that aggregates data and, increasingly, shares it across social media, with a doctor or even a gym. The cloud-based services also push back analytics, motivational graphics and music, as well as location-based maps.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is not just the connected refrigerator. It's thousands of medical devices in hospitals, smart utility meters, GPS-based location systems, fitness trackers, toll readers, motion detector security cameras, smoke detectors, and last but not least, embedded systems. Each of these IoT end nodes requires connectivity, processing and storage, some local and some in the cloud. This means scalability and application elasticity to adapt to dynamic requirements and ever-changing workloads.

To support and accommodate all the devices, sensors and other network-connected gadgets that will eventually become part of the IoT, network designs will need to adapt and become more application centric, according to KEMP Technologies. From health care to automotive and manufacturing to consumer electronics, the Internet of Things is a quantum revolution in how we think about application data activity. Is your network ready for the application onslaught that's coming?
