Internet Of Things (IoT)
WHAT IS INTERNET OF THINGS (IoT)?
One of a host of new and convergent technologies, The Internet of Things (IoT) is a continuously-growing network of objects and devices that feature ports for internet connectivity and possess an IT address. The IoT, as it’s known, links these devices together, and facilitates transmission of data between these devices. The IoT environment allows objects, people, or even animals to transmit data over a network with the help of unique identifiers without any human to human contact or human to computer interaction.
IoT's capabilities not only extend to traditional devices like laptops, desktops, and smartphones, but also to a diverse and wide range of devices that are used by people as everyday appliances, with technology embedded in them that will enable them to communicate and interact with the external environment via the internet.
BENEFITS OF THE INTERNET OF THINGS (IoT)
The IoT is revolutionary in its scope, and will allow billions of daily objects to interact with each other over the Internet, potentially changing the way we live and work completely. Its benefits include:
- Boosting productivity;
- Making transport efficient;
- Reducing energy needs;
- Making homes more comfortable;
IoT makes life better for the consumer and cost-effective for the business. These two points of view are equally important, because you can answer questions about the Internet of Things benefits in one of the two ways: from the consumer’s point of view or from the business’s point of view.
- From the consumer’s point of view, IoT has the potential to streamline our daily activities, lower our utility bills (and energy usage), improve our healthcare, keep us out of traffic, and so much more. It has the potential to make our lives easier.
- From the business’s point of view, IoT has the potential to cut costs, increase efficiencies, improve customer service, speed up decision making, and so much more. It has the potential to be a competitive advantage and to reward those innovators who adapt to it first.
