IBM said its Smarter Planet strategy took a major step forward with the April 29 introduction of MessageSight, an appliance designed to help organizations manage and communicate with the billions of mobile devices and sensors found in systems such as automobiles, traffic management systems, smart buildings and household appliances. Building on the Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) technology, MessageSight delivers the performance and simplicity organizations need to accommodate the multitude of mobile devices and sensors. This enables large volumes of events to be processed in near real time, allowing organizations to consolidate all the information in one place and more easily glean insights to make better business decisions. MessageSight can support 1 million concurrent sensors or smart devices and can scale up to 13 million messages per second. In the next 15 years, the number of machines and sensors connected to the Internet will explode. IMS Research predicts there will be more than 22 billion/Web-connected devices by 2020. These devices will generate more than 2.5 quintillion bytes of new data every day, while every hour enough information is consumed by Internet traffic to fill 7 million DVDs.
