The new technological world we were waiting for many years ago has finally arrived. It is full of smart devices, smart homes, optimized offices, and connected with each other via IoT i.e., Internet of things.

As per Statista Report, there are about 26.66 billion IoT-connected devices around the world which means that every citizen of this world must have at least 3 such devices. Moreover, it is forecasted that the Internet of things will reach 75 billion by the year 2025.

The above statistics proved that the future of IoT is very bright and carries enough potential for its development in the near future. IoT in the digital workplace has already attained a great deal of interest.

Are you ready to look for new predictions about the Internet of things?


Let’s have a look at the top 10 predictions about the Internet of Things:

1) Smart Cities with IoT

In the world of IoT technology, there will be more smart cities. Not only the customers but there will be a great number of cities and companies that will adopt this technology to save time as well as money.

Hence, IoT devices will allow you to get digitally connected with your people and exchange information anytime at any place. The cities will become able to remotely manage, automate, and collect data using IoT app development services. This includes video camera surveillance systems, visitor kiosks, and car rental stations, etc.

2) Optimized office space

IoT has surpassed the impact of audio-visual technology integration and evolved as one of the best technologies today. A great work environment was never fully achieved with simple AV integration, and so came Artificial intelligence & business intelligence tools that have the ability to tie the disjointed systems together.

IoT has emerged as a host of features for changing working dynamics. Post pandemic, when people return to their offices, these IoT platforms & sensory networks will enable positives for them.

As per Skurla, with remote working, offices will be less a place to sit from 9 to 5 and more a place to collaborate and use company resources locally as needed. The various technological advancements by IoT development companies such as indoor geolocation and other location services will allow employees to find desks, meeting places, schedule time, and understand where people are.

Moreover, a strictly integrated IoT platform will help in achieving complete control over the workplace through phone or other online apps. Hence, Employers can also better understand real-time occupancy and space utilization to drive space planning and optimization, and leasing. They will be able to obtain real-time information from the building's infrastructure and subsystems to address problems as they occur and perform preventive maintenance and continuous commissioning.

3) More secure routers

The demand for IoT devices is increasing day by day because of their security and privacy concerns. Because many consumer IoT devices reside in the home and cannot have security software installed properly, they are more vulnerable to attack.

Want to know the reason behind it?

Many manufacturers are working on getting their IoT products to market quickly, so security can be an afterthought. This is where the "home router" comes into play. The router is essentially the Internet entry point to your home. In fact, router manufacturers are likely to keep looking for new ways to increase security. This is because the router has the capability to provide maximum security where other connected devices cannot.

4) Blockchain decentralization efforts

Blockchain acts as a ledger system to transfer data between two parties. On the other hand, most of the IoT devices run on a centralized network. Many traditional systems using IoT devices sent information from a device to the cloud and then back to the device. Due to the increasing demand for IoT devices, users will be open to cyber threats as the present state is not reliable and gets exposed through centralized architecture.

Hence, Blockchain is a safeguard to these issues as it is trustworthy and provides security. Smart Contracts is the one which allows IoT devices to work safely using Blockchain.
