The Internet is becoming the “Internet of Everything”, and “Things” are driving an explosion in the number of connected devices (sensors, machines, vehicles) as well as the volume of data: The “Internet of Things” or “IoT”. The Cisco Kinetic Platform team is building the next generation IoT Platform to manage over 10 million devices and terabytes of data per second.

The scale required to connect, manage, secure, process and move data from these devices in a useful way is unprecedented and is going to require significant innovation to meet the challenge. Cisco Kinetic platform’s mission is to meet these challenges
