We’ve already told you why upgrading to a faster network is the best decision you could make for your business. And one of the reasons why is because the Internet of Things, or IOT, is changing the world as we know it. You may have already heard of this awesome concept, and if you haven’t, you’re almost certainly utilizing it every day. So, what is the IOT, and how is it going to define how you conduct business? Read on to find out!
What is IOT?
The Internet of Things is the wireless network connection between various objects, both household and otherwise. A great example is home automation; with the touch of an app, you can cause your daily alarm to correspond with your coffee maker, so it starts working on a cup of coffee as you rise for the day. IOT is intended to change every aspect of life, including advertising and law enforcement. Soon, there will be license plate scanning capabilities that will act on their own, and connect to a database to discover if a vehicle is stolen or not. For the most part, IOT objects are going to be for general home use. But its effect on the economy will be astounding; it is projected that IOT will add $1.9 trillion in global economic value. So, inevitably, it will affect you. The goal is to eventually have more objects connected to the internet than there are people, which is unavoidable!
Why a Better Network?
In order to keep up with the number of devices connecting to the internet, you’re going to need more bandwidth, which comes from a faster network. It’s important that you are able to keep up with the uploads, downloads and streams that are going to be utilized by nearly every device. You’re familiar, already, with the concept of the cloud. Soon, nearly everything your business owns will be connected to the cloud. Each object will interact with one another, without you as the middle man. If you don’t upgrade your network, you may lag behind, and your business will suffer. Keeping up with technology is vital for business success.
