Get connected to the Internet of Things

by John Beardmore, managing director, T4 Sustainability Ltd

What is it? First perhaps, we should ask what is the Internet? In a nutshell, the Internet is the network arising from the linking of devices using TCP/IP protocols. These are the protocols that allow the transmission and routing of packets of information across local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs). It is the ability to route packets between LANs via WANs that has perhaps made the biggest contribution to the success of TCP/IP as the dominant networking protocol in global use.
