The IoT isn’t always separate from the net, however instead, a doubtlessly huge extension and expansion of it. The things that shape the idea of the IoT are gadgets. They can be in reality anything streetlights, thermostats, electric powered meters, fitness trackers, manufacturing unit gadget, motors. Internet connectivity permits a smart item to speak with computer systems and with different clever objects. Connections of clever gadgets to the internet can be wired, consisting of thru ethernet cables, or wi-fi, which include a wi-fi or cellular network.

To enable unique communications, each IoT item ought to be uniquely identifiable. This is completed through an internet protocol (IP) deal with, more than a few assigned to each internet-linked device, whether or not a computer laptop, a mobile telephone, a printer, or an IoT object. Those IP addresses make certain that the device or object sending or receiving records is efficaciously diagnosed

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of things (physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators) connected through internet which enables these things to exchange data. This creates opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, resulting in efficiency improvements, economic benefits, and reduced human exertions.

In simple terms we can say IoT is a system of things integrated with sensors, softwares, electronics which are connected to each other & can exchange data or Information with other connected devices.
Those heard about IoT, would also like to know about IoT platform.
IoT platforms are the support software that connects everything in an IoT system. An IoT platform facilitates communication, data flow, device management, and the functionality of applications.

we can say IoT platform is a multilayered technology, that connects the sensors/devices, provision them, manage them & can automate the connection of the devices in the Internet of Things. With IoT platform its easy to connect to the devices to the cloud & data processing. It connects remote devices to user applications and manages all the interactions between the hardware and the application layers.

Major enterprise IoT platforms are listed here.
Top Open source IoT platform or free IoT platform list and key features find out here.
