IoT is the network of integral computing devices, buildings, objects, physical and digital devices that empower these objects to communicate, share and exchange data over the network. “Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from 2015, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. In 2016, 5.5 million new things will get connected every day.”
