Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (also referred to as IoT), is the increasing use of cheap and easy to program hardware to add internet and other types of connectivity to everyday objects.

With billions of devices expected to be connected to the internet, each with its own ID, the number of devices already connected to the internet exceeds the number of humans on the planet two-fold.

From industrial machines ordering parts for their own servicing schedules to a print room printer ordering toner, the list is growing incredibly fast..

The items we can relate too such as smart home-based devices that you can control from your smartphone are becoming the norm, but it’s the industrial and business sectors, such as retail, agriculture and smart buildings where the real growth is anticipated in the coming years. The detailed data collected from these devices can be utilised in many ways and when analysed can help improve the business process as well as enrich the lives of individuals.
