IoT - Internet Of Things

IoT represents a rapidly growing class of non-traditional computing devices that are connected to the internet to drive some sort of intelligent operation.


The use cases for IoT are multiplying, but could include connecting consumer devices to the internet to improve product functionality or consumer utility. Other use cases include connecting manufacturing equipment to a corporate network for purposes such as remote monitoring and predictive diagnostics. Gartner predicts there will be an installed base of 25 billion IoT endpoint units in 2021.
