Standards are a critical building block for the technology industry. They enable interoperable solutions, encourage innovation and competition, facilitate trade, provide consumers with more choice and purchase confidence, and contribute to healthy ecosystems with economies of scale. Working with industry partners, Intel has played a significant role in bringing about globally adopted standards such as Ethernet, USB, and Bluetooth®. Because standards are an important component of Intel’s product and technology development roadmap, Intel participates in hundreds of standards bodies and industry groups around the world.1
In addition, Intel invests in development of policy approaches for standards development to ensure a reliable worldwide standards infrastructure. Whether you look to the future of cloud computing, Internet of Things, cybersecurity technology or wearable computing, standards are the common tool to bring new innovations to global mass-markets.
Interview with Brian McCarson (Intel CTO of IoT Strategy) discussing the development phases of the Internet of Things, important role of standards for ecosystem enabling, and transformational applications for consumer, business, and society.
Industrial applications for the Internet of Things have enormous potential to transform the business world from increasing business efficiency and enhancing system reliability to enabling new services. This trend, known as the Industrial Internet of Things, connects devices and equipment in a wide range of industrial environments: manufacturing, transportation, agriculture, smart cities, and healthcare and retail.
For nearly two decades, USB technology has enabled a global market of solutions that allow consumers to transfer data conveniently; connect a broad range of accessories to PCs, mobile devices and consumer electronics; and charge devices easily. The next-generation of USB specifications will drive even more innovation and user convenience for data and charging applications.
