Internet of Things (IoT) is all anyone talks about these days. It has managed to create a buzz that transcends all walks of life. And its implications are far wider than anyone can imagine. We live in an era of ‘Hyper-connectivity’ called the Internet of Things where smart, connected products, product systems and other things connect to new business applications to create new sources of competitive advantage.

IoT is already reshaping human lives by bringing forth a new age of integration. By extending the power of the internet beyond smartphones and computers, it is creating environments where information is shared without any bounds. How IoT devices communicate with each other and humans can change the way the world works.

The internet of things is pretty cool especially for software developers. Write a few lines of code and your refrigerator can remind you to buy milk.

The rapid evolution of the Internet of Things is indisputable, with forecasts predicting that by the year 2022 there will be 1.5 billion IoT devices with cellular connections, roughly 70% of the wide-area category. There is no shortage of technologies evolving to enable the IoT, but which ones will provide the quality and efficiency IoT devices require? Each technology has their own characteristics, not to mention differing standards and keeping up can be a challenge.
