The Internet of Things is a very popular topic today and is commonly viewed as all kinds of objects that communicate using the Internet. For most consumers, this is noticeable when buying multimedia devices. It’s difficult these days to find a television or radio that isn’t connected to the internet. This trend will most likely continue in the years to come by connecting more and more objects. This will result in huge networks and intensify the Big Data trend that started in the same way as the Internet of Things. To understand this concept, the first step is to look at how it works without going too far into the technical details. Next, a definition is needed to have a shared understanding. This is addressed in the first part of the literature review.
