IndustryTap has reported on Intel’s new Quark Processors that will accelerate the Internet of Things (IoT), the ways in which the IoT will provide a foundation for Smart Cities, and Jeff Immelt’s expectations for an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) that will add $15 trillion to global GDP by 2030.

The Growing Internet of Things Ecosystem

A $15 trillion market has to have a robust ecosystem of technologies, and a recent Gartner, Inc. report outlines the top Internet of Things technologies currently being developed and deployed. These include:

  • IoT Security
  • IoT Analytics
  • Low-Power, Short-Range IoT Networks
  • Low-Power, Wide-Area Networks
  • IoT Processors
  • IoT Operating Systems
  • Event Stream Processing
  • IoT Platforms
  • IoT Standards & Ecosystems
