The difference between Internet of Everything and Internet of Things


We hear a lot of people talking about Internet of Things nowadays, but another phrase has also started to become more and more popular – the Internet of Everything, sometimes abbreviated to IOE.

So, what is Internet of Everything? And what is the different between Internet of Everything and Internet of Things?


Internet – once a novelty, now something we take for granted

Today we are so used to the internet that we almost take it for granted. 
It is everywhere around us and in many parts of the world we are so dependent on it that we wouldn’t even know what to do during a normal working day if all of a sudden we didn’t have internet. We are also getting more and more used to the fact that many things are connected to the internet, homes becomes smart homes with connected devices and workplaces turns into smart offices.


The next step in the technological development – the Internet of Everything

Many people are now implying that we are moving towards the next step in the technological development – from a a world where some selected things and devices are connected to a world where everything is connected. It is this vision of the future that has gotten the name Internet of Everything.

Cisco, an american company that sells networking equipment see this concept as something that would bring ”…people, process, data, and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before-turning information into actions that create new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunities for business, individuals, and countries.”


Ewa Home and the Internet of Everything

This future would be a place where we would have connected wearables like watches and where things around us like our cars would be connected. Some people even think that parts of our bodies could be connected to the internet.
Scary, would some people say. Awesome and great would others say.
We guess we will just have to wait and see, no matter what we wish for the Internet of Everything is becoming our reality and we at Ewa Home are really looking forward to see this future becoming our present!
