Internet of Things in the Developing World
Due in part to the expansion of global internet access and a reduction in the costs of digital technologies, the world is becoming an increasingly digitally connected space. It is estimated that, by 2017, the Internet will reach an excess of 4 billion users worldwide.
Over the past few years,the digital industry has been incrementally shifting toward the creation of an interconnected Internet of Things (IoT). IoT describes a web of wirelessly connected sensors and receivers that are able to communicate directly with not only humans, but also with any number of other devices. In broad term, IoT encompasses a wide array of devices ranging from wearable consumer fitness trackers to fully integrated power grids.
