According to Ericsson Mobility report, there are now about 4.6 billion connected devices excluding phones, tablets and laptops. And it is also projected that this number will increase to 15.3 billion in the next five years.
With all the stats pouring in regard to Internet of Things (IOT), you should be wondering what makes this technology so important and trending, impacting almost all the industries globally.
IOT is not a new technology that is revolutionizing the industries, in fact we have been doing this process from the day sensors were invented. It is just an innovative solution that experts have come up with to efficiently manage the data.
The tons of data that are being collected through thousands of sensors will go useless, unless they are stored and analysed. IOT greatly assists in this and makes it easy for anyone to access the data online from anywhere on earth.
In short, IOT is an integrated technology that offers a platform where the large amounts of data collected from various resources can be stored and analysed. This is highly important for industries to implement onto their operations as it greatly assists them to make right and efficient decisions.
There are 3 major functionalities that IOT offers to the community. Those being:
With such offerings, IOT has a lot of scope in almost all the industries.
Unlike traditional technologies, understanding IOT will not be easy without practical experience. It requires a good understanding of sensors calibration & operation, data collection, interpretation and manipulation.
To learn IOT, joining winter training programs will be a great choice. Through these training programs you will get a good hands-on experience and develop a better understanding on the system via practical approach.
The following winter training program on IOT is available for you to learn the technology from core,
In this project-based training, you will learn the theoretical concepts behind IOT and then implement the knowledge gained to build 2 different projects on IOT.
The IOT projects that you will build are:
