NetBurner’s founders started twenty years ago as unassuming pioneers in the much later named Internet of Things (IoT). Our mission then and now was to make network-enabling hardware and devices a snap for industrial engineers and product designers.

In hindsight, one could call this earlier era in networking-enabling or IP-enabling widgets “IoT 1.0”. Now that IoT 2.0 is in full swing it’s exciting to look forward on where else this fantastic journey will go from a macroeconomic perspective. In this post, we’re featuring two articles that summarize the market drivers and economic forecasts as we move ever closer to a nearly inevitable IoT 3.0. We think it is an important read for our forward-thinking community.
