In fact, the US is dead last in IPv6 adoption. That's because we owned the majority of the address space. But, IANA ran out of V4 addresses in 2011. New users get v6. China currently has 7 major backbones that are v6 only. Even the 2008 Olympics was broadcast with v6. Netflix, Google, Amazon and Akamai now all support v6.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
