The Internet-of-Everything includes both the Internet-as-we-know-it (which connects people through computers, phones, tablets, wearables, etc.), and the Internet-of-Things.
The Internet-of-Things was popularized with the concept of M2M communication (Machine to Machine communication) forefronted by the telecommunication industry. But the Internet-of-Things is much more than that, and the Internet-of-Everything is even bigger still.
Internet-of-Everything includes everything that has gone before
Internet-of-Everything will grow phenomenally
Experts predict that in the Internet-of-Everything there will be astonishing growth and that over 50 billion currently unconnected devices will be connected by 2020.
Be inspired, watch the videos
