Utilities are facing a deluge of data from a rapidly increasingly number of end devices and sensors on their industrial networks, including smart meters, solar panels, wind turbines and much more. This trend of connecting more and more “things” to networks has been called by many names, among them the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet. In a recent white paper, Cisco defined IoT as "comprising networks of physical objects and connected sensors that automate operations by: Gathering information automatically about physical assets (machines, equipment, devices, facilities, vehicles) to monitor status or behavior. Using that information to provide visibility and control to optimize processes and resource use, and to improve decision-making."
