@prabhakar_deosthali, that's true but we are only starting to scratch the surface of the IoT ecosystem, and most devices only transmitt a few kbytes of data.
Using IPV6 and a combination of 3G/4G/5G networks can support the connectivity. Bandwidth problems are occurring because heavy use of multimedia applications on mobile devices, something it didn't happen until a few years ago.
True! IPV6 will solve the problem of unique adddresses to the devices .
But what about the bandwidth requirements.
Assuming we allow free flow trafic between all the devices world wide over the internet of things , the bandwidth requirements of routers,swicthes and all those intermediataries will increase many thousand times . The wwwhole internet infrastructure will need an overhaul.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
