An explosion of connected possibility

In 2014 Forbes Magazine described the Internet of things (IoT) in overly simplistic terms. It is the connecting of any device with an on and off switch to the Internet (and/or to each other). The (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines provided with unique identifiers (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.

The (IoT) had humble beginnings in 2000 as a supply chain helper by installing RFID tags for facilitating routing, inventorying, and loss prevention. Since then the IoT has experienced a “perfect storm” of technology advances that have led to explosive growth and changing the way we live our lives.

Now in 2020, just 6 short years later, the original Forbes definition has rapidly evolved; (IoT), now refers to the billions of physical devices around the world that are connected to the internet, all collecting and sharing data. Thanks to the arrival of super-cheap computer chips, the ubiquity of wireless networks, new sensor technologies, the arrival of 5G, it’s possible to turn anything, from something as small as a pill to something as big as an aeroplane, into a part of the IoT. Connecting all these different objects and adding sensors to them creates a level of digital intelligence to devices that would be otherwise dumb, enabling them to communicate real-time data without involving a human being. The Internet of Things is changing the fabric of the world around us to be smarter and more responsive, merging the digital and physical universes.

Westgate Technology Corp. has extensive experience and a successful track record in the IoT space, leveraging the platform and protocols well before the term was even created to connect devices wirelessly with the purpose of managing assets and collect process data.
