Top IoT Trends to Watch in 2020

January 26, 2020 / LAUREN HORWITZ

As the Internet of Things (IoT)  permeates homes, cities and office buildings as well as industries like retail and health care, It’s clear that connected devices are changing how people interact with virtually everything around them. Technologies such as 5G – the next generation of cellular connectivity – and edge computing – an architecture bringing compute closer to the users and devices that need it – have enhanced the capabilities of IoT devices. They have made it possible for wearables devices to convey health data in milliseconds, a fingerprint scan to admit you to a building or a voice command to schedule a meeting. 5G and edge computing technologies have furthered the potential of IoT devices, boosting data transport speed and reducing data latency.As a result, IoT market growth is predicted to continue to grow apace in 2020 and beyond. International Data Corporation (IDC) estimates that there will be 41.6 billion connected IoT devices, or “things,” generating 79.4 zettabytes of data in 2025.
