What is IoT M2M and Big Data really about

Internet of Things – Machine to Machine – Big Data


In simplest terms, it’s the communication between devices “Machines” and other devices. Like our desktop or laptop that communicate with other computers to transfer information ” a.k.a the internet”.

The Internet of things “IoT” and Machine to Machine “M2M” is a separate communication directly between the devices that need to communicate with each other. Big Data describes everything going on within the communication between all of these connected devices. Big data is a buzz word and a broad term for data transfer so large or complex that traditional data processing is insufficient.
