According to Gartner’s research 6.4 billion connected “things” will be in use in 2016, up 30% from 2015. The same report estimates that by 2020 we will have 26 billion connected devices.
As a rule, “anything that can be connected, will be connected”. Why do we need a such a huge amount of devices connected together? Well, what if your sneakers could count your steps and send the statistics to your cell phone? What if your alarm clock notifies your coffee machine to start brewing coffee when it wakes you up in the morning? Today there are smart thermostats that use sensors and real time weather forecasts and house activity to manage and reduce your energy usage. There are many more such examples.
Connected devices are going to change business and enterprise significantly. IoT will make our cities smarter, bring new experiences to transportation and healthcare systems and to energy management and almost every industry. With all these devices connected, security will be a key issue to maintain personal privacy and business data and information. You are probably carrying the ultimate IoT device on you – the smartphone range of sensors like Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Proximity, and connectivity options like Wi-Fi, Cell, NFC, Bluetooth makes it a well-equipped IoT device.
