About the talk
The Internet of Things was truly living in the Stone Age during the early 90s when I first started my IoT journey. The Internet and TCP/IP had finally been made available to the general public. Slow, primitive, wireless data networks were beginning to emerge. Embedded software and hardware allowed machines to talk, while high-level software running on early Windows PCs allowed us to listen and make sense of what we heard. Join me as I take you on a tour of the visionary moonshot engineering effort that ushered in the dawn of IoT.
Everyone, this is Rob Tiffany. I'm here to talk to you about what the internet of things look like way back in the 1990's. I know that sounds crazy to a lot of you it definitely feels like the Stone Age. I'll eat up or iot data strategy stuff over at Ericsson Ericsson is a Swedish company. We make that cellular technology. You said that you can connect your Android and iPhone if I hear a lot about 5G these days and that's where one of the companies that does that and so that's lots of fun and now we're certainly looking forward to the intersection
of 5G and iot, that's certainly a happening around the world. So today I'm going to take you on a journey to the past but I will relate it to the present. So, you know, someone just seemed totally out of touch but I've been unfortunately I've been in this business by way too long. I've done this for a long time. And so I remember what it was like at the Dawn of iot which was kind of close to the dawn of you know, when the internet was made public after arpanet. So if you imagine the early 90s when it came out of the US government and the military to be allowed to be
for everybody. And so that's kind of where we got started. So let's go ahead and dive in and let's take a walk down memory lane with me and see what it is. And of course all the pictures you're going to see Ole harken back to those days, you know, you may or may not get some of these pictures depending on how old you are. So it depends on the agenda for today and this what kind of look like a typical agenda when you think about just kind of going through all the components of i o t e r the things the devices the machines write. This is definitely going to have more of an industrialized
