The explosion of data and the value that can be derived from it continues to grow at an exponential pace. More data will be created every 10 minutes than in the entire history of the world up to 2008! More and more of this data is being created by the Internet of Things by billions of sensors that are embedded in everything from traffic lights, industrial machinery, medical devices and other end devices. , etc. Analytics on the data generated is what brings intelligence and knowledge, creating endless possibilities of value to consumers and businesses.
One of the fast growing trends in several IOT applications is that of data in motion and real-time analytics. Until recently, most of big data and analytics on top of it was static. Organizations tended to store all data collected in centralized data centers and used Hadoop type of batch processing techniques to process that data. However, there are new applications which require real-time analysis of data with ultra-low latencies of response. Some of these applications are connected cars, retail shopping experience, surveillance video analytics, anomaly detection in networks for security threats, etc. Decisions and actions need to take place at the edge, where and when the data is created; that is where the data and analysis need to be as well. With sensors gaining more processing power and becoming more context-aware, it is now possible to bring intelligence and analytic algorithms close to the source of the data, at the edge of the network. The talks describes network infrastructure architecture, analytics platforms and algorithms that address data in motion at the edge of the network. The talk will also discuss some practical IOT use cases in applying analytics to data in motion at the edge of the network.
Dr. Ishwar Parulkar is a Cisco Distinguished Engineer and Chief Technology Officer for the Cisco India site. In this role he is responsible for setting the 3-5 year vision for different aspects of Cisco’s technology portfolio. While having his hands in many Cisco technology domains, his main focus is on next generation mobile internet, internet of things and information centric networking (ICN), which is a radically new paradigm in architecting the internet.
Ishwar relocated to Bangalore from the Silicon Valley in 2010 to lead the conception and development of Cisco’s mobile backhaul router portfolio, which have won the prestigious 2012 NASSCOM and Economic Times awards for innovation. The development of these leading edge, innovative products from India have been the subject of business school case studies on emerging market innovations. Prior to Cisco, Ishwar was a Distinguished Engineer at Sun Microsystems, where he was instrumental in developing several generations of SPARC servers, storage/networking datacenter equipment and high-performance microprocessors/chipsets. Ishwar spent the first formative years of his professional career at Apple on desktops/servers and innovative mobile devices, which were a precursor to the smartphone revolution.
Ishwar's expertise over the years spans a wide range - from networking, data center to consumer products. He has made many fundamental innovative contributions in these areas, captured in the several patents he holds and the technical papers he has published. He holds a Ph.D. in EE from University of Southern California, Los Angeles. He is a frequent invited speaker at industry events.
