IoT Communications

The Internet of things (IoT) refers to using the Internet to facilitate communication with “things”. IoT is the connection of highly distributed physical objects, which have embedded electronics, computers, software, sensors or actuators, to the internet for the purpose of collecting and exchanging data for monitoring and control. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a subset of IoT addressing industrial applications and processes. IIoT is sometimes called industrial internet or Industry 4.0 and incorporates machine learning and big data to harness sensor and machine data to enhance efficiency and productivity. IoT Communication defines the infrastructure, technologies and protocols used to connect IoT devices to each other, gateways and cloud platforms.
