Introducing the Internet of Things

Since 2006, the number of devices connected to the Internet has outnumbered the number of people on the planet. In 2010, the number of objects connected to the Internet totaled 12.5 billion (1.84x the amount of people).

This is the new phase of the Internet, in which traffic no longer comes primarily from humans, but from a network of machines. The Internet doesn't connect people, it connects IP addresses.

Cisco estimates that 50 billion devices could be connected to the Internet by 2020; while Michael Nelson, former director at IBM, has speculated that the figure could be up ot 100 billion. Considering the projected 2020 world population is 7.6 billion people, that's an estimate of at least 6 connected devices per person.

But you don't have to fear the rise of our new computer overlords. The Internet of Things is changing the way we live and do business for the better. At National Technologies, our focus is on working with this new phase of the Internet. This means effectively managing large networks of devices, and keeping systems uncomplicated. This also means giving businesses mobility by putting them in the cloud, so you can work from any 6 of your devices at any time.

NTG welcomes our new computer overlords, and is working to make sure they only take over the difficult tasks in our lives (and nothing more). If you feel like you're under a machine dictatorship, give us a call, and we'll figure out how to make the Internet of Things work for you.
