IoT Trends: What Will 2020 Bring?

December 15, 2019 / LEE STACEY

The year 2019 has witnessed a continued proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) software platforms, and no doubt 2020 will see further use cases of the IoT as it cements itself even more deeply within business operations. We'll see further development of the IoT across consumer products and supply chains, too, but some areas to consider in more detail will include. Fragmentation has been a barrier to progress in the IoT since the very beginning, and messaging protocol is one area in which standardization would be massively beneficial. MQ Telemetry Transport (MQTT) has been around for more than 25 years but has gained momentum recently thanks to the onset of the IoT. Simplicity and low-power efficiency, combined with comprehensive MQTT QoS, make it the ideal standard for the IoT. MQTT-SN will also come to the fore. Extra features added to MQTT for the purpose of relaying data from sensor networks will allow for IoT devices to use even less power to send messages.
