With the Internet of Internet of Things (InternetofInternet of Things, IoT) boom struck again, such as Microsoft, IBM, Oracle and SAP and other traditional platform vendors have begun to actively participate in the development of networking strategies to attract more business customers. Microsoft has, by virtue of which the client of Windows10 Azure and the cloud, and gradually expand and consolidate its influence in the field of IOT.
Microsoft Ignite Technology Conference (MicrosoftIgniteChina) today forthcoming Microsoft as a productivity platform providers, both in the terminal device-aware, or in the cloud data services and analysis, are all Internet of Things related to the business partner provides a wealth of technical ability. And plans at the conference, Microsoft’s end of Internet of Things architecture analysis, Microsoft Azure networking service, Windows10 and open source terminal and AzureIoT intelligent integration, as well as Microsoft networking Modular (Lego) development plan and Internet of Things Case sharing expand actively explored.
IDC released a report last year that by 2030, China only in the number of sensors each family has is 40-50, the total amount of data generated to 100ZB. By 2020, the global number of Internet of Things put into use devices will reach 2.5 billion, when the market value will reach $ 7.2 trillion. According to the GSMA report shows that in 2020 the Chinese government will invest $ 600 billion to support the development of Internet of Things.
Future via the Internet a variety of sensors, equipment and systems, control, predict and manage everything connected world, will become the core of Internet of Things. When the devices become more abundant, uninterrupted connection and thoroughly instrumented, networking technology will have a significant impact in many areas.
In Microsoft’s view, the introduction of Windows10IoT will exchange for a wide range of intelligent objects associated equipment, and other small devices from the gateway to the mobile POS machine, and then the robot technology and special medical equipment and other important equipment industry, Windows10IoT will provide system equipment having an enterprise-class security integration platform and provide machine-to-machine and machine-to-local connection through Azure cloud networking services.
Today, many Internet companies, traditional hardware companies, chip makers are all pushing their connection standard, but Internet of Things are faced with a variety of inter-operating systems, applications, drivers BSP rising development costs, equipment limited by the different linkage connection agreement, high security needs of enterprise-class products, deployment management difficulties and other challenges.
Microsoft’s networking strategy will have three advantages: first, unity, unity OneWindows strategy, product developers can be deployed to a variety of devices. The second is security, Windows10 can do more granular security access control. The third is the linkage between Microsoft joined AllSeeen Union, Windows10 device supports AllJoyn standards and use Azure cloud service, you can realize the linkage between devices.
