What is the Internet of Things?

The Internet of Things (IoT) merges the physical and digital worlds by connecting a network of real-world devices – sensors, controllers, machinery, etc. – to the internet. It enables the collection, viewing, and notification of real-time data in a way never seen before. These device networks are able to perform a virtual limitless list of functions, from a simple task of securely collecting and uploading humidity data in a factory environment to complex systems that analyze and correlate data from a multi-device network, notify you of potential issues, and adjust the operability of a machine based on transmitted data. Due to the versatility of these devices, IoT networks and devices are quickly becoming a vital part of any successful business.
