M2M is about enabling the flow of data between machines and machines and ultimately machines and people.
Regardless of the type of machine or data, information usually flows in the same general way;
– From a machine over a network,
– And then through a gateway to a system where it can be reviewed and acted on.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the interconnection of uniquely identifiable embedded computing devices within the existing Internet infrastructure.
Typically, IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond machine-to-machine communications (M2M) and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and applications.
The interconnection of these embedded devices (including smart objects), is expected to usher in automation in nearly all fields, while also enabling advanced applications like a Smart Grid.
