White Paper

The Internet of Things is the way data will be created and collected by the rapid and enormous growth of sensors in the physical environment. This growth will occur in residential, commercial, and industrial settings, in virtually every application from household device asset management to command and control of commercial building automation systems and factory and process automation systems in large facilities.

The concept of “the Cloud” is an outgrowth of the rapidly reducing cost of storage for data, and the huge increase of volume of data from IoT sensors. The Cloud is simply all of the servers and data storage devices to which data can be ported and from which data can be served.  Using the Cloud truly makes data easily accessible for residential, commercial, and industrial settings.  Thus, combining all systems and applications into one invisible location.
