"Internet of Things" is one of the hot catchphrases of the industry these days. It's about connecting special-purpose devices (laundry machines, dishwashers, toasters, locomotives, trucks, factory robots, etc.) directly or indirectly to the Internet. As things go, several commercial customers have nudged us in the direction of taking a good, long look at this space and we're already actively helping several of them to deal with the particular scale challenges of needing to connect tens of thousands or more devices concurrently and with bi-directional information exchange.
