  •  Industrial Internet - maximum economic value for basic

For reference:

Gartner Inc. defines the  Internet of Things (IoT) as the network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with their internal states or the external environment.  Another concept that has been recently gaining more attention is the Internet of Everything  (IoE) -  the intelligent connection of people, process, data and things, which, according to the Cisco company,  makes networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before.
