The next wave of the Internet of Every Thing is upon us

There are more than 11 billion internet connections to desktops and mobiles, but according to research by Goldman Sachs the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) could see more than 28 billion “things” connected to the internet by 2020!


The IoT promises tremendous opportunities for monitoring and controlling processes and environments and, in doing so, improve productivity and raise standards of living.


The next wave of the IoT is beginning to take off, and with it and new Internet of Everything (IoE) will emerge! This third wave will encompass multiple realms of connectivity where IP-addressable connectivity will form the back bone and local connectivity for sensors and actuators will be provided using standards such as Bluetooth® Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) or protocols running on IEEE 802.15.4 radio layers.


While Bluetooth Smart and Smart Ready devices have become easier to implement with the advent of modules and compact ICs, pairing can still be a fairly manual task.


The addition of NFC can simplify pairing and also avoid the “man-in-the-middle” issue, preventing unwanted devices connecting without the user’s knowledge or permission. NFC pairing is easy and straightforward, and is usually accomplished by bringing the two devices briefly into contact.
