INTERNET OF THINGS
DIGITAL, TECHNOLOGY AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the term for everyday objects that are embedded with software enabling them to have network connectivity and exchange data. If you have a coffee pot, thermostat, security system that you turn on with an app on your phone, then you’re using IoT. Analysts predict that by 2020 there will be over 26 billion connected devices. Gearhart Law is uniquely positioned to function at a high level in the growing IP space of IoT.
