By the end of the decade, trillions of devices on the Internet-of-Things will dominate global communications with machine-to-machine (M2M) transactions. Today each M2M service provider has proprietary protocols, but Intel is aiming to standardize the those communications with a cookbook-style technology for brewing up interoperable connections on the Internet-of-Things: R.

Here is what Go-Parallel says about Intel's efforts: A new architectural framework for embedded devices on the quickly growing Internet of Things has been released by Intel with its McAfee and Wind River subsidiaries.
The Intelligent Systems Framework (ISF) aims to facilitate easier coordinated use of multiple Atom, Core and Xeon processors in distributed embedded systems. ISF works with all the serial and parallel programing tools Intel already offers, plus adds numerous enhancements to virtualization, trusted execution and remote-management specifically supporting machine-to-machine (M2M) interactions among devices on the Internet of Things.
Industry researcher IDC predicts that by 2015, a third of all connected systems will be intelligent, representing a $2 trillion market. By the end of the decade, analysts predict trillions of embedded devices will be addressable over the Internet, offering incredible business opportunities. The Intelligent Systems Framework, in cooperation with McAfee security and Wind River real time support, aims to provide a standardized and scalable way to grow the Internet of Things.
