IoT is short for the Internet of Things. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of uniquely identifiable physical objects (things) that are internetworked to achieve control and information exchange via an information carrier based on standard communication protocols. IoT allows a wide variety of devices to create seamless communication and contextual interactions remotely across the existing network infrastructure. IoT enables all physical objects to act as uniquely addressable nodes and adds network functions to enhance and extend their main functionality. This feature introduces tremendous new capabilities and creates a number of opportunities by providing controllable and even personalized interoperability and manageability in today's IoT based street light monitoring system.
