The world of the Internet, a term with countless fields, scopes, and pros and cons as well. The internet landscape is basically burgeoning, Not only computers, laptops, mobile phones, tablets now other devices which includes smart door locks, washing machines and cleaners, toys and robotic toasters as well are now internet-connected. The Internet of Things or IoT is now resembling a kind of umbrella with massive devices being connected globally.

What is The Internet of Things- (IoT)?

The Internet of Things or IoT is made up of the devices that connect to the internet and share the data with each other and globally. The devices are not only limited to laptops, computers, and smartphone but also includes the objects equipped with chips to gather and communicate data over the internet.

5 Predictions for IoT Future:

  1. By 2020, it is estimated that there will be more than 30.73 billion IoT devices:

Just analyzing the fact that during 2016, there were only 4.7 billion things connected to the internet. According to the IoT Analytics, it is estimated that by the end of 2020, the market will increase nearly to 26 billion IoT devices which is ultimately a massive hit in the future of IoT.

  1. 5G, the next-gen mobile network:

You must be wondering that how fast is 5G? Well, you could download an HD-quality movie to your device in seconds. It is that fast. Let’s keep it clear that speed is not the only feature of 5G that contributes to the development of IoT. It also has low latency and broad coverage that makes fully-autonomous vehicles one step closer to reality. Fascinating?  The deployment of 5G will make it possible to control even a broader range of devices remotely via applications. Remote surgeries can become a reality with this mobile network. 73% of executives working in healthcare expect to offer new services and products to their clients with the help of 5G.

  1. Smarter cities:

The users would not be the only ones who would be using IoT devices, cities, and companies will increasingly adopt smart technologies to save time and money. That means cities will be able to automate, remotely manage, and collect the data. This is already being tried and tested in developed countries.

  1. Most Secure and Smartest Routers:

Mostly, users of IoT devices reside in the home and are not secured with the software installed on them, so they can be vulnerable to attack by hackers. Now, this is the point where IoT is going to make the most secure routers. A conventional router provides some security, such as password protection, firewalls, and the ability to configure them to only allow certain devices on your network. Router makers will likely continue to seek new ways to boost security. It will keep on climbing the walls of security using IoT.

  1. Artificial Intelligence will continue to rise:

Netflix is the biggest example of showcasing how AI is taking over the information and Technology, now machine learning, the subtype of artificial intelligence that helps computers to learn without someone having to program them. The algorithms are sharply designed so the data can then help the machine learn what your preferences are and adjust itself accordingly.

2020 is going to be the year of IoT in short!
