“The Internet of Things” (IoT) is not a term that has been around very long. In fact, it was first coined in 1999 by Kevin Ashton and has become a hot topic in the technology industry ever since — and predominantly so in 2018.
According to reports from We Are Social and Hootsuite, there are more than 4 billion users (half of the world’s population) around the globe who are connected to the Internet. In terms of growth, the Internet in general only knows one direction — up. The IoT is going to help push the Internet as we know it further in that direction.
