The Internet of Things (IoT), is a collection of interrelated devices, embedded with software, sensors and network components. These devices work within a system together, relaying information to the cloud, to us the users, and to each other. These 'smart devices' can be anything from tables, fridges and mobile phones, to tractors, vents or even jet engines.
Coinciding with the rise of the IoT, has been a rise in development of network technologies. It is of no surprise that with the abundance of internet enabled devices, the speed, reliability and coverage area of various networks has also surged. Not too long ago, finding Wi-Fi outside of the home or office was seen as a moment of fortune, now however, most coffee shops, fast food restaurants and libraries have publicly available Wi-Fi as a standard fixture.
