Abstract: How Flash Memory Brings the IoT to Life
IoT is many things - connected cars, wearables, smart homes, intelligent factories, smart farms, and smart cities - and they all need lots of flash storage. The IoT must store and process data locally to keep network costs under control. Flash memory is fast, cheap, nonvolatile, rugged, and low-power, just right for being in trillions of systems everywhere in the world. Local systems can manage autonomous servers, perform event-based communications, and analyze huge amounts of data in real-time. Furthermore, the demand for storage will surely increase as new innovations and applications develop. Today we talk about retrofitting or extending things we already have, such as home appliances, vehicles, farm equipment, instruments, and medical equipment. But why not design entirely new applications based on IoT? These new concepts will be based on fog computing, virtual and augmented reality, and video or image processing that will go far beyond what we have today. Look to these new applications, which we call IoT 2.0, to use even more flash memory with total needs far exceeding today's cellphones.

About Verizon:
Verizon is one of the largest communication technology companies in the world. Every day, we connect millions of people, companies and communities with our powerful technology.
