Typically, IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond machine-to-machine communications (M2M) and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and applications. The interconnection of these embedded devices (including smart objects), is expected to usher in automation in nearly all fields, while also enabling advanced applications like a Smart Grid.

One of the major IoT events this year is the M2M world congress 2015 in London on April 28th & 29th. This event is expected to bring insight into some tremendously significant topics like ‘Hidden M2M Opportunities in Emerging Markets’, ‘Innovating IoT Solutions with M2M Technologies’, ‘Taking Automotive Industry to The Next Level with M2M Technology’ etc., with distinguished speakers being from ‘Ericsson’, ‘Cisco’, ‘Deutsche Telekom’ and other corporate giants.

The most noteworthy area to tap-in for IoT will be that of its application in smart homes, automobiles and wearable technology. Apart from established tech solution providers like Intel, Sapient, IBM and others, Indian start-ups are also taking a leap into this segment.

It's not science fiction anymore - it is science fact," Samsung Electronics CEO B K Yoon said while delivering the keynote address at the Consumer Electronics Show 2015 in Vegas.
