The 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).

Every object, both real and virtual, connected to, and accessible over the Internet is the basic idea of the Internet of Things or the internet of Everything.

The Internet of things will introduce many new technologies,protocols and services and I hope to cover them as they develop.

Currently I’m focused on MQTT which is emerging as the main messaging protocol for IOT.

If you have any questions please ask

Best Regards Steve
