How does the Internet of things ecosystem work?
The Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem is a network of physical objects embedded with digital technologies, computing power, and communication systems that enable them to collect, exchange, and act on data. This connected world of objects can be connected to the internet, interact with each other, and be controlled remotely by users. At its core, the IoT ecosystem takes data from its connected devices, processes it, and then distributes it through cloud computing services to applications, analytics, security, and other services. This distributed infrastructure is built on a core set of standards, protocols, architectures, and tools that enable disparate devices and applications to function together. Data is transferred between devices and users through networks, such as the Internet, cellular networks, Bluetooth, RFID, near-field communication (NFC), and other wireless technologies. These networks enable different types of device-to-device (D2D) and remote/cloud-based communication.
