IoE, a game changer that already works in Greece, Antonis Tsiboukis
Projections of more than 50 billion connected devices and a market of at least 19 trillion dollars by 2020 are not regarded as hype, by Antonis Tsiboukis, General Manager of Cisco for Greece, Cyprus and Malta. On the contrary, he points out that Internet of Everything has already considerable presence even in Greece, citing examples from the health and transportation sectors. He says that #IoE may also create a large number of new jobs (many more than those lost) and adds that cities have to be “smart” in order to survive and Cisco along with its partners can help them in order to reach that goal.
