The largest Operator in South Korea, SK Telecom has teamed up with Cisco to develop a simplified version of Internet-of-Things(IoT) platform that will allow devices to analyze and process data locally. The new solution will be complementatry to SK Telecoms' s current cloud-based IoT platform, ThingPlug that was launched in last year and will leverage Cisco's Fog Computing that offers real-time data analysis. 

SK Telecom's ThingPlug is an open IoT platform based on oneM2M standard to offer a one-stop development environment as well as diverse application-enabling features for developers.

SK Telecom expects the new solution which can reduce data traffic by processing information real-time rather than sending it to cloud servers, to cater for data traffic surge when the 5G services are launched by 2020. Both companies will also jointly develop mobile apps and sensors that would be running on the solutions.
