Giving Thanks to the Internet of Thingsgiving
Wireless protocols and standards help users stay connected, while making our lives easier by helping us make better decisions faster.
Nov 20, 2018—
The leaves are changing, a nip is in the air and rumblings of football rivalries are renewed. It's the season of giving thanks, and with Thanksgiving just a few days away, I'm thankful for the people in my life and the Internet of Things (IoT) that connects us. In fact, I like to think of this favorite of holidays as "Thingsgiving."
The proliferation of the IoT and smart products is surging, as companies across many industries are jumping in to get a slice of the pie. This trend will continue, as Bain forecasts that the combined markets of the IoT will grow to about $520 billion in 2021—more than double the $235 billion spent in 2017. For those of us in the RF industry, these are exciting times. The IoT is connecting more people, places and things—and, in the case of this Thingsgiving, our food.
Or how about the new Alexa-enabled microwave oven from Amazon? Hey, Alexa, please cook the green bean casserole that we'll discover three hours after we've already eaten!
The Real Meaning of Thingsgiving
Without these protocols and their peaceful coexistence, the IoT would not exist. Just watch the "The 3 Ahas that Make IoT Work" and you'll see what I mean.
