IIC Explores Connected Transportation with the Internet of Rail

Data is an increasingly strategic and meaningful aspect of the IIoT; according to a recent International Data Corporation (IDC) study, by 2025 the amount of data generated annually by the estimated 41.6 billion connected IoT devices is expected to be approximately 79.4 zettabytes (79.4 billion terabytes).

Clearly the role of Big Data in IoT will only continue to accelerate in the coming years, and organizations that deploy IoT systems will need to use foresight in deciding how to manage the massive amounts of data that will be generated. Nowhere is Big Data more valuable than in Intelligent Transportation, the report says, as industrialization and automotive IoT solutions will experience a 60 percent compound annual growth rate as compared to the overall IoT CAGR of 28 percent through 2025.
