The Flagship Publication of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) ® It Is Innovation Te smart home is expected to be a key compo- nent of the Internet of Tings (IoT) with analysts projecting that the IoT market could run into the billions of dollars globally by 2020. Tirteen percent of broadband households already own at least one smart home device, and a survey by CEA and Parks Associates found that 20 percent of households with broadband intend to acquire one or more smart home devices within the next year. An estimated 20.7 million smart home devices were sold in 2014. Te survey indicates that nearly two-thirds of consumers will purchase a smart device like smart thermostats, door locks, smoke detectors and light switches that can communi- cate with another smart device. At CES, there are multiple ways to learn about the latest advances in the smart home. Getting to 50 Billion Devices: Learn What CEA and Industry Leaders are doing to launch the IoT Te IOT is poised for rapid growth. Yet the world is quickly running out of Internet addresses under the old Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) system. But IPv6 has so many addresses available that the world population could double and we would still be able to assign thousands of IP addresses to every human on the planet. As the number of "smart" networked devices in the home grows (in addition to connected mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets), IPv6 will allow the Internet to grow both in respect to the data transmitted and the number of devices con- nected. IPv6 assigns a 128-bit numeric address to a connected device, compared to the 32-bit address provided by IPv4. Te Tech & Standards R7 Con- sumer Electronics Networking Committee created an IPv6 Working Group that developed IPv6 host and router profles requirements standard. Te new standard, called Host and Router Profles for IPv6, identifes the required features and capabili- ties for stand-alone routers and hosts with support for IPv6 and related necessary protocols. CEA is releasing the new standard at the 2015 CES. Tere will also be a panel to discuss the new standard, its implementation and impact, and other projects CEA is working on to help grow the Internet of Tings. Getting to 50 Billion Devices: CEA & IoT Moderator: Mike Bergman, Senior Director, Technology Standards, CEA Speakers: Dan Torbet, ARRIS; Bill Rose, WJR Consulting; Mike Anderson, PTR Group Wednesday, January 7, 2015, 9-10 AM LVCC, North Hall, Room N261 Be on the lookout for this standard, and the smart home devices that rely on it, at the show.

CES: Te Smart Home Marketplace presented by Bosch Te movement to create a smarter and more efcient home increases daily and is accelerated by smartphones and tablets interacting with a myriad of connected objects and devices. From basic security monitoring or more customized access to appliances, lighting, window coverings, irrigation and entertainment systems – homeowners are enjoying more convenience and more comfort - this CES Marketplace examines what you need to know. Research Summit at CES By the end of 2014, we should see connected devices generate $25 billion. Where does IoT stand today and what are its defning trends suggesting about the road ahead? Find out at CEA's Research Summit at CES. Te State of the Internet of Tings: 3:30-4:30 PM January 7 LVCC, North Hall, Room N253 Visit CESweb.org for more information on the Research Summit.
