Internet of things — What is it and why should we care.
Today, internet is not limited to send mails and watch movies. It has spread its usage beyond expectations and beyond our imaginations. We use it to purchase any product, buy tickets to travel, pay our bills instantly, and talk to a friend living far off from our place and many more to mention. Connectivity & Mobility takes this entire thing to a whole new level. With the Internet of Things, we are entering into a new world of connected reality.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects or “things” embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data. The Internet of Things allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure. Experts estimate that the IoT will consist of almost 50 billion objects by 2020.
