As you have now learned from the course, the Internet of Things is the new hype. And as it's a trend a new development brings a lot of new term with it. Some words are just shorter versions of themselves and others are entirely new words. Luckily you can still review the terms from the previous lessons if you have forgotten some.
Basically, IoT is a network made of sensors and devices. Sensors through the various locations collect physical data and finally transfer it to multiple cloud or data centers to be handled.
This lesson is meant as a quick recap of all of the subjects that the previous lessons included. So let's go take a look at what we have covered.

Cloud computing allows us to check our bank account and save data into services like Google Drive and OneDrive. It also allows the network connection to the internet and the ability to share gathered resources with multiple customers. All this is possible thanks to cloud infrastructure that is made up of large-scale networks of data centers.
Instead of saving data on the local hard drive, it can be saved into the cloud, a collection of multiple servers that can be accessed online.
The local networks handle the data processing that is being able because of fog computing.
Edge computing processes data away from centralized storage and keeps information on the local parts of the network.
So what exactly is the difference between IoT and M2M? Do they even have any relation to each other? Machine-to-machine was the so-called hype before the IoT was in development. They use similar technologies, but they still are vastly different from each other.
Internet of Things plays a major role in the development of the 5G network. 5G enables a high-speed mobile network that the self-driving vehicles must have in order to become a part of normal traffic. 5G provides a huge number of connections to sensor devices, minimizes latency, and energy consumption. 5G also provides a high level of security.
So could be said, that IoT's development and implementing them as a normal part of use, the need 5G network is highly needed.
Great job! You have almost finished the course. Next up is the knowledge check, for that you can still go revise the previous lessons.
