Yep, that’s a big B up there. Not a day passes that there are not a plethora of articles about IoT, Connected Devices, etc etc etc
Here’s a great quote for today –
The global connected retail market is expected to reach $54 billion within six years, according to the worldwide study from Grand View Research.
As context, the connected retail market size in 2014 was about $11 billion.
An increase in the adoption of IoT technology across retail is seen as the driver, primarily in the areas of customer experience, supply chain and new channels and revenue streams.
Of course it remains to be seen if we can actually create an IoT that’s secure enough, has enough bandwidth and enough IP addresses to actually work. IPv6 was not created with this in mind, I can tell you that.
