Internet of Things

Internet of Things (IoT) is as fundamental as automobiles and the Internet in the way it will eventually permeate the way we live and the way we conduct business. IoT is a global mega-trend that has already been years in the making.




Internet of Things (IoT) is as fundamental as automobiles and the Internet in the way it will eventually permeate the way we live and the way we conduct business. IoT is a global mega-trend that has already been years in the making.

The ability to connect anything to the Internet is simple, pervasive and affordable. Real-time monitoring and remote control of our lives, factories and assets is made possible with an always-on Internet connection, smart phones, and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication. The IoT technology is a natural and logical evolution of the smart phone and M2M where the business cases and business models have been proven and begin to merge.

The lines between smart devices and M2M begin to blur, as the integrated components are de-constructed into the basic sensors and communication protocols enabling IoT to flourish. Once security and safety concerns are resolved, IoT becomes the next major platform for products and services in just about every market segment imaginable.
