The Land Grab of IOT

March 5, 2014

One of the struggles we have in talking about M2M is everyone wants to change the category.  For example, M2M itself is a term that fits the mobile carriers well, but not all the sensors use cellular technology.   Cisco is pushing the Internet of Everything [IoE] and Europe has pushed the term Internet of Things [IoT].

Well based on the tweets at Mobile World Congress the defacto term is definitely IoT since IOT as a tweet was 50% larger than the next category which was wearables.  

The problem is that no one term really works well for all the industry.
