Infographic: The Internet of Things Explained

“The Internet of things” is a phrase you’ve probably been hearing over and over during the last year or so. But what exactly is it? A new infographic aims to help us make sense of the confusing term.

The term refers to the plethora of devices which can communicate and share data with each other, and how the devices interact and ultimately make our lives a little easier.

Check out the infographic below for a visual explanation of the internet of things, and how it works.
