Top Internet of Things (IoT) trends 2017


What is Internet of things (IoT)?

Internet of things (IoT) is a complete network of physical objects surrounded with electronics, connectivity, software and sensors that enable the object to transform data to the contacted devices within the infrastructure. Internet of Things (IoT) permits the things to controlled and sensed remotely within complete infrastructure and improve the object’s efficiency. The example of Internet of Things (IoT) lights in the household and commercial environments, thermostats, alarm clocks and security system etc.

Internet of Things (IoT) provides an opportunity to enhance the business growth with the improvement in quality as well as productivity and enhanced customer relationships. Internet of Things (IoT) has improved the customer’s satisfactions level and provided better business insights. In 2017 Internet of things (IoT) are going to enhance in different ways some of them are explored in today’s article.

Connectivity of Internet of Things (IoT):

In IoT infrastructure, we’re using a different type of connectivity to make it more efficient for complete infrastructure because it is not one network but heterogeneous networks are included in it. Different objects of IoT devices are connected to the sensors with the help of different technologies such as Bluetooth, regular Ethernet, Long Term Evolution (LTE), Wi-Fi and Li-Fi. In 2017 IoT decision makers are stepping forward to improve the standards of connectivity with the enhancement in wireless connectivity options.

The talent shortage is a barrier in IoT:

Internet of Things (IoT) known as a technology innovation but talent shortage is going to be a great challenge in coming era. Searching for the best resources especially as a security professional is the top priority of IoT services providers. Keeping all things in mind we can say the industry is going to invest in IoT training and certifications to enhance the industry.

Mobile moments in IoT:

Marketers admit the technology’s importance especially the latest mobile technologies by understanding that such platforms are providing them market competitive success in the business world. They’re always been interested in searching new platforms including artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and the internet of things (IoT). Mobile moments are the moments in which a person pulls out a mobile device to get what he or she wants, immediately and in context. IoT is changing the internet as well as the things or devices connected to the internet. Mobile moments will appear to the connected devices for the virtual assistance and improve the customer’s interaction.

Blockchain technology for Internet of Things (IoT):

Blockchain technology is considered as a missing link to resolving scalability, privacy, and consistency alarms in the Internet of Things (IoT). It could be used in tracking of different devices and enabling the process of transactions among devices. In 2017 Blockchain technology will be used for the security enhancement as well as privacy improvement in IoT. The significant advantages of Blockchain technology are:

  • It allows the devices to participate in transactions as a trusted party
  • In Blockchain technology the “middle man” is removed from the process, therefore, it has accelerated the transactions.
  • It has removed the legal or contractual costs.

To Conclude

Internet of Things (IoT) is the next level of automation in technology era that has made the implementations easier and faster the earlier. It has improved different aspects of our life whether are from home or work, it affecting our life day to day. In 1999 Internet of Things (IoT) was a future thinking approach but today it is a reality and solution of different problems. The influence of IoT could be seen in your transportations, gyms, health care, smart homes, and your business. Everything is under the influence of this technology therefore now this is a time to accept it and move towards the road to success.
