调查显示75%的物联网公司希望添加区块链技术

2019-12-14 16:23

 

虽然目前大规模使用区块链的案例还很少,但物联网行业已成为采用此类技术的“最佳地点”。


Gartner的IT行业分析师阿维娃·利坦(Avivah Litan)在一项调查中表示,“在美国的物联网技术采用者中,75%已经采用了区块链,或者计划在2020年底之前,在500多家美国公司中采用区块链。”


调查显示,区块链技术可以为虚拟网络或设备之间的数据传输创造一个可信的环境,同时提高这种交换的效率。


根据Litan的数据,在75%的区块链采用者中,86%的人在各种项目中同时实施物联网和区块链。


物联网公司的目标是将计算设备与数字和机械设备整合在一起,以避免人与人或人与计算机的互动。


例如,苹果手表(Apple Watch)和亚马逊(Amazon)的Alexa正在消费品中使用这些技术。这些技术也可以用于医疗、工业和军事领域。


63%的受访者表示,当公司将区块链和物联网技术结合在一起时,最大的好处是提高了多方共享交易的安全性和信任度,56%的受访者表示最大的好处是提高了业务效率和降低了成本。


然而,Litan警告说,对于寿命较长的物联网设备来说,与协议更改相关的区块链实现可能比较困难,因为它的波动性比较大。


Litan说:“一些区块链实现很难适应大量联网事物产生的交易率。”他预计区块链和物联网的必要发展将在5到10年内成熟。

 

While there are still few large-scale use cases of blockchain, the Internet of Things (IoT) industry turns out to be “a sweet spot” for the adoption of such technologies. 

Avivah Litan, an IT industry analyst at Gartner, said in a survey, said that“75 [percent] of IoT technology adopters in the U.S. have already adopted blockchain or are planning to adopt it by the end of 2020 out of more than 500 U.S. companies.”

Blockchain technologies can create a trusted environment for data transmissions between virtual networks or devices while increasing efficiency of such exchanges, according to the survey. 

According to Litan,  of the 75 percent of blockchain adopters, 86 percent are implementing both IoT and blockchain in various projects.

The IoT companies aim to integrate computing devices with digital and mechanical machines to avoid human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. 

For example, Apple Watch and Amazon Alexa are using these technologies in consumer goods. The technologies can also be used in the healthcare, industrial and military sectors. 

Increased security and trust in shared multiparty transactions are the top benefits when the companies combine blockchain and IoT technologies, according to 63 percent of the survey respondents, while 56 percent said the top benefit is an increase in business efficiency and lower costs. 

However, Litan cautioned that blockchain implementations related to protocol changes could be difficult for long-lived IoT devices due to its relatively high volatility. 

“Some blockchain implementations struggle to scale to the transaction rates that can be generated by large numbers of connected things,” Litan said, expecting the necessary evolution in both blockchain and IoT to mature in five to 10 years.
