Chapter Overview

Over the last 10 years, we’ve seen the emergence of the “Internet of Things”, where hundreds of millions, if not billions, of devices, ranging from cameras to sensors to refrigerators and robots, are connected to the internet. This has led to an explosion of data being fed back into software applications, typically hosted in cloud datacenters, as businesses have moved more and more of their computing infrastructure there. That, in turn, has created a tremendous demand for network bandwidth and resulted in traffic bottlenecks.
