ITU and Cisco issue IoT report

A report from the ITU and Cisco identifies the internet of things (IoT) as a major global development opportunity that has the potential to improve the lives of millions and dramatically accelerate progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Launched at the Pacific Telecommunications Council annual meeting in Hawaii, ‘Harnessing the Internet of Things for Global Development’ outlines how IoT could have a major impact in areas such as grassroots delivery of healthcare and education, positively transforming communities within a timeframe “that would have been unimaginable even a few years ago”. The report argues that strong demand for IoT technologies has created a huge array of IoT devices that are readily available, affordable and scalable for developing countries, providing an ideal platform to energise growth in emerging economies and improve people’s quality of life significantly.
