Why IoT changes everything

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things, or IoT. You’ve heard of it. But what is it, and why is it promising such vast change? Well, imagine everything in our physical world all seamlessly connected, securely connected, everything connected. Even then you're barely close to grasping the potential of IoT.

IoT's potential

Everything connected. Everywhere.

IoT is not separate from the Internet, but an expansion of it - a way of intelligently fusing the real and cyber worlds. By 2050, there will be 24 billion interconnected devices, meaning almost every object us around us: streetlights, thermostats, electric meters, fitness trackers, water pumps, cars, elevators, even gym vests.

These IoT-enabled devices contain sensors that constantly collect and react to data, and this vast level of data can be used to unlock new levels of intelligence.

No limits, except your imagination.

Every so often, an innovation comes along that leaves those without it behind. IoT is such a game-changer. Because it's not what it IoT is, it's what it has the potential to be. For businesses dreaming of new solutions, the only limits are their imagination.

Ericsson's IoT solutions will help you bridge that gap between possibility and reality. And we’ll do this by supplying the ultimate connector: cellular.
