Exploring The Internet of Things
If you’re reading this page, it is safe to say that you have access to a “traditional” internet-enabled device like a computer, tablet or smartphone. But look around your home, vehicle or workplace for a second. There’s a pretty good chance that you don’t have to look far to find one or more pieces of internet-enabled technology (like your Alexa, Google Home or Smart TV). The billions of such “connected” devices worldwide—that help us be more productive, comfortable, safe, entertained, healthy, informed [and the list goes on]—are all part of the Internet of Things (or IoT). IoT is just one of the many technology focus areas that ETMA member companies provide.

Why IoT Matters...
Today, there are more connected things than people in the world. In fact, some analysts have estimated more than 8 billion IoT devices were in use in 2017 alone. Learn What industries are affected by IoT and why IoT matters to enterprises and the technology providers that support them.
What Is the Internet of Things Ecosystem?
Remote sensors, dashboards, networks, gateways, analytics, data storage, IoT Platforms and security are just some of the components that enable businesses, governments, and consumers to connect to their IoT devices. These components are part of the IoT ecosystem.
Internet of Things Security
As we all become more connected, we are more exposed to those who would potentially try to exploit the underlying IoT technologies. IoT Security presents a major challenge that businesses and consumers need to be aware of.
