By the end of 2020, there will be 1.91 billion Internet of Things connections. Securing these connections is becoming an increasingly challenging, and critical, function. That is why key IoT vendors are investing significant dollars and hours into research and development related to Smart IoT gateways.
However, IoT gateways are currently caught amid a greater transformative evolution that shifts focus from the cloud to the edge, reversing the investment priorities of the past decade, causing IoT vendors to revisit their market strategies, further enhancing edge capabilities for gateways.
With this evolution to consider, next-gen IoT Gateways are being developed with seven core characteristics in mind:
• Digital security
• Extended connectivity support
• Edge processing
• Authentication and management
• Cloud services
• Edge intelligence
