An Internet of Everything (IoE) is formed by networking people, processes, data and things. The advantage of such an Internet of Everything is that it connects people, devices, appliances and processes, data and things together into one intelligent process. The context in this is that with the Internet of Everything, almost everything is online and connected via the Internet, and the delivery of data is in real time.
With the Internet of Everything, not only are computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones connected, as with the classic Internet, but also intelligent machines that can access a database and use enhanced networking services. Therefore, possible applications for IoE networks range from sensor networks and electronic devices, as well as consumer electronics and wellness industry devices, to smart city facilities, to the integration of motor vehicles and traffic facilities, to industrial machines and distributed smart hardware.
Such constellations offer unprecedented opportunities for organizations, individuals, communities and countries and enables a higher degree of interconnectedness between people, processes and things. In contrast, an Internet of Things( IoT) only networks physical objects and not people and processes.
While the Internet of Things forms a unified technological transition, the Internet of Everything encompasses various technologies, including IoT technology and diverse communication links. The classic approach of host-basedcommunication is being replaced by content-based communication in the Internet of Everything. This network architecture, Content Centric Networking( CCN), is about content, its labeling, routing and storage.
