The Internet of Things (IoT) has arrived and it will be everywhere and in almost everything:
Just what is “the Internet of Things”?
The Internet of Things, or “IoT”, to oversimplify it, extends the Internet far beyond desktops, laptops, smartphones and other devices we to potentially everything man-made around us… and this trend has only just begun.
Think about all the physical objects in our daily lives, including the usual suspects, such as our vehicles, homes, offices, public spaces, as well as our clothing.
These and many other manufactured objects, now “dumb”, dormant and disconnected, could become embedded with a wide range of IoT technologies, including electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity.
Now with IoT technology embedded inside, all those objects would become “smart”, just as our phones became “smart” in recent years, going far beyond voice communication, and connected on the Internet on a 24/7/365 basis. All IoT smart objects, just like our current smartphones, would both engage us proactively and also be connected with every other smart object embedded with IoT technology.
Emerging technologies today will change our lives tomorrow. It will change what it means to be in business within a decade. Nationwide Bandwidth’s engineers have been studying IoT technologies for over the past decade.
