The Decade of the Internet of Things (IOT)

and Smart cities (Smart Cities)

In 1999 the software genius: William Nelson Joy, better known as Bill Joy, presented an estimated and adjusted projection of the “Internet of things”, within the framework of the World Economic Forum in Davos, in Switzerland. A decade later, in 2009 Cisco Internet Business Solutions Group (IBSG) predicted that there would be a time in the history of the Internet when there would be more things than human beings connected to the network and that same year the British Kevin Ashton, a leading researcher at the MIT, gave a famous conference where he presented in a structured way the concept of the Internet of things, under the original English name: “That ‘Internet of Things'”.

For both Ashton and Cisco, “The Internet of Things” is nothing more than the ability for electronic devices, for everyday use and different types, to be connected to the Internet for the benefit of one or more users, without being required for connection of regular and / or permanent human intervention.

Two decades after being forecasted, these projections ceased to be Science Fiction and by the end of the first decade of the 21st century millions of Televisions, Refrigerators, washing machines, robots, vacuum cleaners, cars, security cameras, traffic lights, agriculture measures, equipment atmospheric measurement, thermometers and in general the devices of daily use, are already connected to the Internet fulfilling the forecast of more devices than people using the network.

In the new decade that begins, the number of devices connected to the Internet will grow exponentially, which will represent a major challenge at the regulatory, technological, social and cultural level, but, above all, the biggest challenge for the sector will be to ensure that the Internet of Everything represents real economic benefits that justify the investments of Telecommunications operators and is not another parasitic way of operating their networks.
