Hi and Welcome to Steve’s Internet Guide.
In 2017 over 3 billion people where connected to the Internet (Wiki), and over the past 10 years the Internet has become just as important as TV, radio, and the telephone.
The use of the Internet,networks and related technologies is growing.
The Home Network
Today’s home and office networks are built around the same protocols and technologies as the Internet. See TCP/IP protocol suite explained
The home network or home office network will form the hub for your internet connection allowing all devices, play stations, tablets, computers etc to connect together and to share an Internet connection.
With the growing use of Internet and network enabled devices there will a growing need for almost everyone to have a basic understanding of networking so that they can setup, configure, and use them. See Setting Up a Home Network
The Home Internet of Things (IOT)
The first wave of the Internet involved connecting people to each other and people to information.
The next wave of the Internet will involve connecting the physical world to the Internet, and machines to each other (M2M – Machine to machine).
The home IOT will probably use the same technologies as the industrial IOT and I hope to cover them as they develop. See- Beginners Guide to IOT
MQTT (MQ Telemetry and Transport)
MQTT is a M2M (machine to machine messaging protocol) and is emerging as the main messaging protocol for IOT and Home IOT.
- Introduction to the MQTT messaging protocol.
- MQTT Hosting,Brokers and Servers
- MQTT and IOT dashboards
Being able to Program is becoming a basic requirement for anyone in computer networking.
If you have any questions please ask
