The Internet of Things: Connecting Objects to the Web


The path towards communication ubiquity started years ago with the aim of offering to users different services anytime and anywhere. This is becoming true only because wireless and mobile communication have had a remarkable evolution, as has the miniaturization of mobile terminals, while keeping high performance and security. The Internet of Things appears to be the ultimate or next step of ubiquitous networks. It is the imminent future generation of networks that will connect not only networked terminals (mobile phones, computers, smart devices), but also everyday objects that were until now just "un-networked things" or "inert objects".
