@goafrit, this should not be the case of much worry as the device inelegance will not be putting in this kind of tough situation. There will be always local intelligence will be there, otherwise that device will not survive in the market because of lack of acceptance by the users.

It is the lowest level now. There is no going back as people are expecting everything to be hooked to the web. Any market research that does not capture that certainly has a faulty hypothesis. The world will be networked and there is a huge market in that space.

I'm thinking this is couting only devices directly connected to the Internet and not counting things like sensors and controllers which connect via a gateway or other aggregation device.

I think they are counting everything - directly or indirectly. But you made a good point. I have a small "gateway" at home, how many devices should be counted for my home if all goes through it?

That is a very positive aspect of this. You can have the whole global ecosystem in one place.The risk is this - will these systems work when there is no power. Imagine if your toilet cannot flush because Comcast is down!

Fairly good analysis. The numbers make sense. That said, if the developing world picks up steam, we can close to double digits in billions by 2016

"The need for always-on, always-connected access continues to push consumers toward more sophisticated devices."

True!...Going forward, the need for "always-connected" would be a key factor...especially for the future IoT world. Is there any prediction about how the data speed is going to increase in next five years and what are the infrastructural changes envisaged?

If you counted smart sensors/controllers that can be pinged from the internet the number would go up dramatically...

This is a very good news, devices connected over internet along with support for software/firmware upgrade over internet will be making a very good advancement in device's usability and effectiveness.

6 billion does seems about. World population is about 7 billion now. US is about 320 mill.

I figure I'm on the upper side of the spectrum with a household of 4 and about 15 devices.

If you count my share of devices at work, you get may another 10 more?

So 25 X 300mill ~ 7.5 billion. But that's if everyone in the US was me.

Asia has 4.2B, europe has .7B  That's a lot more people than the US. Don't know what their "per person average" is but it's got to be close to 1, I would think.

So I would think that may be on the low side.

@zewde: Does 6 billion sound like the kind of figure you'd expect...

As per this column I posted a couple of days ago, they estimate 50 billion entities on the IoT by 2020 -- so if we assume a cross between a linear and an exponentail growtrh curve, I'd say 6 billion is reasonable around now.

I agree that I have a bunch of entities connected to the net already, but there are a lot of pepole out there who don't have any, so I'm assuming it all ballances out.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
