The Internet of Things refers to uniquely identifiable objects (things) and their virtual representations in an Internet-like structure. Stated differently, the concept involves the notion that there are many things (assets, objects, etc.) in the world that may be addressed/labeled/cataloged for various purposes.
One term used for this concept is “Object Hyperlink”, which refers to the notion of extending the Internet to objects and locations in the real world. In other words, the Internet is associated with (or mapped to) the real world by attaching object tags with URLs as meta-objects to tangible objects or locations.
IoT Technology encompasses many areas. Some of the technologies and solutions driving adoption of IoT include:
- Migration from IPv4 to IPv6
- Significantly lower sensor and wireless modem costs
