- R&D 100 Awards
There can be no Internet of Things (IoT) without the network to support it. Sensors and gadgets will gather vast amounts of data, but IoT is about more than just gadgets and displays. The amount of data gathered will seriously impact the network, and the networking industry needs to evaluate possible implications. Data analytics, security and network agility will all play a role in the future development and implementation of IoT across scientific networks as R&D professionals make decisions about what is best and most cost effective for their needs.
