Rick, thanks for this slide show, very interesting to the say the least. It looks like it is not just he IoT but exploding media content is finally creating a radical re-think of networking on the whole.
Was there any mention of TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links) at the SDN event?

The July event has Dr. Guru Parulkar's slides on SDN.
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.
