What is Internet of Things?

An Internet of Things system consists of sensors that communicate with the cloud. Once the data received by the cloud, the Software processes it and decides to perform an action in taking control of devices that are connected without the need of the user.

1. Internet of Things by 2025:

The internet of things devices such as machines and sensors are expected to generate 79.4 Zettabytes of data in 2025 which is predicted by IDC (International Data Corporation). Also, IOT will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 28.7% over 2020 t0 2025.

The computers are programmed in a way to focuses on data they receive from the device and learn with the received data to understand the customer’s preference and adjust itself accordingly.

To solve this amount of customer data, IoT allows data flow between the device and AI can help to manage this data without any human errors. Also, AI is considered the key propellant to the growth of the IOT revolution.

In a span of ten years, from 2020 to 2030, IOT devices will grow from 75 billion to more than 100 billion, and the improvement from 4G to 5G in terms to grow IOT is most important. Today’s 4G network can support up to 5500 to 6000 NB-IOT devices on a single cell. With a 5G network, up to one million devices can be handled by a single cell.
