IEEE Standards Association Unveils “I Spy Ethernet IEEE 802.3™” Contest Winner

IEEE, the world's largest professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, announced Rahul Kar, an Information Technology (IT) student from Calcutta, India, as the winner of the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) I Spy Ethernet IEEE 802.3™ Facebook contest. The contest capped yearlong celebrations honoring the 40th anniversary of Ethernet and 30th anniversary of IEEE 802.3 standard by highlighting its versatility through examples of existing Ethernet deployments and visionary concepts of future applications.

Revealed during the IEEE 802.3 Interim meeting in Indian Wells, Calif., Mr. Kar’s entry depicting smart cities based on the Internet of Things was selected as the winner. It will be featured in an upcoming animated short to be premiered on the IEEE Ethernet 40th Anniversary and IEEE-SA Facebook pages on 5 February 2014. The entry will also be highlighted during an upcoming reddit “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) with Ethernet inventor, Dr. Robert (Bob) Metcalfe, professor of innovation, Cockrell School of Engineering, University of Texas at Austin, scheduled for 12pm EST on 5 February 2014.

“It’s exciting to see Ethernet, even after 40 years, still driving change. Early personal computers used Ethernet to log into remote mainframes using TELNET and to print on laser printers using PostScript. That was back at 10 megabits per second on coax. Now we have WiFi and 100 gigabits per second on fiber. The impacts of the Internet’s evolving plumbing are felt everywhere, often surprisingly, next especially in education, energy, and healthcare,” said Bob Metcalfe. “The I Spy Ethernet IEEE 802.3 contest was a fun way to invite big thinking on new directions Ethernet might go in the future.”

The I Spy Ethernet IEEE 802.3 contest attracted submissions from all over the world including Brazil, India, the Netherlands, Nigeria, the Middle East, and North America. An array of innovative Ethernet applications and concepts like the Internet of Things (IoT), automotive and industrial Ethernet, personalized medicine, and Twitter-controlled pet care systems, among others, were featured prominently.

“Ethernet has become a cornerstone of today's real-time, connected, data-driven world and serves as a springboard for new innovations that will resonate with users around the world," said David Law, chair, IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group, and distinguished engineer, HP. "The diversity of entries in the IEEE-SA I Spy Ethernet IEEE 802.3 contest is a testament to Ethernet's many facets and its unique ability to adapt to any application or environment.“

IEEE-SA is hosting an Internet of Things (IoT) standards workshop on 7 March 2014 during the first IEEE World Forum on the Internet of Things (WF-IoT) in Seoul, Korea 6-8 March 2014.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Video experiences should be unique and exciting! But that doesn’t mean you need to patch all the pieces yourself. Users demand rich and engaging experiences and new ways to connect with you.
