The computer was invented in early 1880’s, but the revolution in computing industry came with evolution of internet in early 1950’s with the concept of packet networking. Over period of time the internet technology have gone through major upgradations and if we see the speed of internet in last 30 years then you will be amazed to know that the speed is been boosted by 3.3million times from like 300BPS to 1 GBPS in just last 30 years.


Growth of internet accelerated in different phases and in present era Cisco is among the major companies leading the industry in Internet of Everything (Cisco)


We can track the growth of Internet in a better manner with following flowchart:





Fixed Computing and Mobility – If we talk about fixed computing and Mobility phase of growth of internet then it was the time period of 1990 – 2000 when approx 200M devices were connected to the Internet.


Internet of Things – Over period of time there was major transformation in growth of internet in 2000-2014 around 10 Billion devices were connected to the internet.


Cisco Internet of Everything – Cisco IoE

Internet of Everything is a step ahead of Internet of Thing. If we go by the statistic predictions then by 2020 then Cisco will lead the industry of Internet of Everything with around 50 Billion of devices connected to it. The key upgradation in Cisco Internet of Everything is that the number of devices that can be connected and managed via cloud are way more than Internet of Thing.

A step ahead of where Internet of Thing used Cloud technology to get devices connected Cisco Internet of Everything is using Fog computing with IOx and the cost saved with use of Fog Computing is way more than Cloud computing.

There is a lot to know about Cisco Fog Computing with IOx:

The need for Fog Computing emerged when business and industries reflected an urge for a solution that can act as a reliable, safer, faster and low cost source that can be used for higher productivity.

Internet of Things generally runs with use of satellite or mobile networks that leads to more cost and time consumption, to avoid this extra consumption of cost and time Cisco identified the way out by setting up a distributed computing capability I.e. the devices are set more closer to the data source that saves the cost and time incurred in data transmission.

Cisco IOx facilitates the industries to come-up with their own applications and interface to personalize process & act quickly to changing conditions, competition or changing customer need. Fog Computing have come up with easier management and wider scope for its application.



Cisco have made it possible for business to unleash the innovation:

Cisco IOx have provided an open, flexible platform for hosting of a industry’s Operating System and applications at the network edge. With Cisco you can even get a Software Development kit that will enable you to:
