Internet of Things

The “Internet of things” (IoT) is becoming an increasingly growing topic of conversation both in the workplace and outside of it. It’s a concept that not only has the potential to impact how we live but also how we work. But what exactly is the “Internet of things” and what impact is it going to have on you, if any? There are a lot of complexities around the “Internet of things” but let us stick to the basics. Lots of technical and policy-related conversations are being had but many people are still just trying to grasp the foundation of what the heck these conversations are about. Broadband Internet is become more widely available, the cost of connecting is decreasing, more devices are being created with Wi-Fi capabilities and sensors built into them, technology costs are going down, and smartphone penetration is sky-rocketing. All of these things are creating a “perfect storm” for the IoT.

So What Is The Internet Of Things?

Simply put, this is the concept of basically connecting any device with an on and off switch to the Internet (and/or to each other). This includes everything from cell phones, coffee makers, washing machines, headphones, lamps, wearable devices and almost anything else you can think of. This also applies to components of machines, for example a jet engine of an airplane or the drill of an oil rig. If it has an on and off switch then chances are it can be a part of the IoT. The analyst firm Gartner says that by 2020 there will be over 50 billion connected devices… That’s a lot of connections (some even estimate this number to be much higher, over 100 billion). The IoT is a giant network of connected “things” (which also includes people). The relationship will be between people-people, people-things, and things-things. IoT is not a new concept, it is nothing but the revolutionary phase in the history of Internet. It is popularly known as the third wave of Internet revolution. Yes, the history of internet can be divided into the three waves. It is quite fascinating to go through details of these three waves which can help us to figure out the future possibilities with internet. It is changing the way, we were using internet. It is providing all kind of sensations to the things, which can be expressed over internet as data. Things like chair, toothbrush, watch, pen, lights, fan and what not are now able to talk to human and with each other over a long distance with Internet. With the rapid growth of Internet of Things, it has been estimated that about 50 billion objects are going to be connected over internet, providing many opportunities to the innovators, creators, makers and hackers to contribute to this technology.
