Internet of Things


This is also known by its acronym: IoT. In the Inter­net of Things, everyday objects like toasters, heaters or speakers have their own IT inter­faces. The idea is for the access to the Inter­net these inter­faces provide to make the use of the equipment they are built into easier and more convenient for people. This is not a vision – it has long since become a reality: Printers, tele­visions and cars are of course Inter­net-capable today and belong just as much to the Inter­net of Things as washing machines with Wi-Fi, or Blue­tooth dummies.
