The Internet has changed the way we live, work and communicate. But we are still at the beginning of the Internet revolution. Aside from cloud computing, the Internet of Things, or IoT, is yet another topic that opens up a lot of conversations and possibilities. This will further revolutionize the way we live, work and communicate. So let’s discover what IoT is truly about.

Internet computing today

Before, Internet computing was highly limited and expensive. Today, we can easily have high-speed broadband, fiber optics, and Wi-Fi Internet services available at affordable costs.

Moreover, Internet-ready devices abound and their costs are at its lowest compared with a decade ago. Now, more and more people can easily stay connected to the Internet wherever they may be. All these pave the way for the Internet of Things.

What is The IoT?

The Internet of Things, in its most fundamental essence, is nothing more than the concept of connecting any device to the Internet and to each other. And we mean any device that has an on-off switch. Be they your smartphones, smartwatches, smart-TV and even those without the “smart-“ prefix attached to it just yet, like your coffee machines, table lamp, oven, your home entertainment system, etc.

With this, the Internet of Things becomes one giant network of connected devices. But why stay connected? Because it will make life, work and communications more efficient. It’s truly leveraging the power of technology to automate many tedious or repetitive tasks.

The connections that matter

Hopefully, the dream is that while technology takes over all these menial tasks, people will have more time for other things that matter. Like people to people connections—real relationships. This is the one thing that the Internet of Things can help with, but never build deeper. It’s all up to us.
