Much of the innovation in the Internet of Things (IoT) is being fueled by young, dynamic companies, and the “maker generation.” In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2017, 50 percent of IoT solutions will originate in startups less than three years old.Recent startups, highly focused on one or two products or services, are competing with traditional giants to bring IoT products to business and consumers. They use cloud services by default to provide data analysis, interactivity and customer services, and interact with users through smartphone apps to minimize costs and maximize flexibility.

For the past year or so, smart-meter maker Itron and partner Cisco have been working on a transformative concept for the grid edge — a single, standards-based platform that can connect everything from Linux-enabled grid routers and smart meters to simple, battery-powered sensors, and a myriad of devices in between.The idea behind Itron’s Riva platform is to bring the same level of flexibility to grid-edge devices as smartphones have brought to the world of mobile connectivity. Instead of devices linked by proprietary networks and fixed with a set number of functions, Itron and Cisco want each endpoint to support a growing number of applications, including those that haven’t even been envisioned yet.
