Light Reading: Internet of Things Added to Editorial Lineup

June 9, 2014

Light Reading said it is adding the Internet of Things (IoT) as a critical new topic in its editorial coverage lineup.

According to a company release, as an area of increasing interest to the global communications services sector, the Internet of Things (IoT) now has a dedicated section on Light Reading - that brings together the Light Reading editorial team's coverage of the key industry developments related to the IoT, including the associated topics of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and the migration to IPv6.

"Along with other critical developments, such as high-speed wireless broadband service development, the evolution of communications processors, and the potential use of unlicensed spectrum, the Internet of Things is capturing the imagination of technology developers such as Cisco Systems and providing a new market opportunity for communications service providers," said Light Reading Editor-in-Chief Ray Le Maistre.

"Industry estimates suggest that up to 75 billion devices might be communicating with the Internet by 2020, and even if the actual number is only half of that, we're looking at a significant rise in the volume of data that will need to be transported and analysed by networks and analytics systems. As the world's leading authority on next-generation communications technologies, we continue to expand our coverage based on the needs of our audience," added Le Maistre, who already feels like he has thousands of personal belongings connected to the Internet.

Light Reading is a research-led online community.
