The Internet of Things— The Internet of Things is a loose term for a variety of different kinds of devices, from sensor-laden smoke alarms and thermostats, to internet-connected buttons to order your favourite pizza. What they share is a reliance on increasingly cheap electronic components and an ever-more reliable ‘always on’ internet infrastructure. At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Cisco CEO John Chambers estimated that by 2020, the cumulative economic impact of the sector could be as large as £11.5tn. By 2010 more than 2.5bn ‘things’ were connected to the internet, while Cisco’s Internet Business Solutions Group estimates that will grow to 25bn by next year, and as many as 50bn devices by 2020.
