IoT and M2M – taking the world by storm
Internet of Things or simply IoT is now a commonplace term in day to day life. Concepts like the connected-home are the norm; whereas the inability to control household items remotely or monitor business assets globally is now considered abnormal. Yet it was only 16 years ago that the term IoT first came into existence; it’s hard to believe that a concept that influences so much of our everyday lives is still just in its adolescence stages.
