What does 2016 have in store for IoT?


”If you think that the internet has changed your life, think again. The IoT is about to change it all over again!”

If you are thinking that it is an end of more inventions and everything has been finally settled down on Internet, then put some light on above proverb again. It is not the end, but a beginning!

Let us spill some beans on the term – Internet of Things (IoT)

Be it phones, televisions, computers, light bulbs or any place you breathe in, everything will be connected to one another in the future. And the framework that will connect these things is Internet of Things (IoT).

Internet of Things back in 2015

2015 was the year when IoT actually happened, though it has been evolving for many years. It was a dream come true thing when people made plans to build foundations and design infrastructure. People are dependable on technology which was not the first time and trojan horses get attracted themselves. Do you agree?

Wait! Let’s dive in deep to clear this concept. Somehow, we still are not able to imagine of how these things willtake place practically. Google has Nest, Apple has Home Kit, Samsung has SmartThings, Microsoft has Windows and then, there is a long list. While some of these things are supervised via your phone, a remote or tracker, but protocols collapsed as perhierarchical norms.

Some Statistics time!

– Smartphones verticals – Apple and Samsung are entering the wearable race at a beyond expected faster rate to expand their mobile ecosystems. Yet 87 percent of mainstream consumers still have no idea about IoT technology.

– To deploy IoT systems, device connection will rise from 15 billion to 50 billion by 2020.

– Global spend on IoT services will rise from $656 billion in 2014 to $1.7 trillion in 2020 that will fuel the growth in devices and IT services.

All in one go, it has been concluded that,

”The Internet of Things promises to bring every object, consumer and activity into the digital realm.”

2016 is two months old and accelerating at a fast pace. So, what IoT has in store for you? Our homes will be smarter but slower than the tortoise. As it has been predicted that 2015 was full spent on understanding the framework, so what will happen in 2016? Any guesses? Yes, it is the year to execute this framework as per your tailored needs. More will be spent on installation on Wi-Fi, bluetooth connectivity, wearable technology. Hence, slowly and steadily everything will change and enter the digital realm.
