Internet of Overwhelming Things (IoOT)
Techopedia Explains Internet of Overwhelming Things (IoOT)Internet of Things allows physical objects or everyday gadgets/devices to be interconnected and hooked to the Internet. The extremely high volume of traffic caused by this, however, can easily overwhelm a network infrastructure, which can result in performance degradation or other security issues.
The term "Internet of Overwhelming Things" was coined as a reaction to the challenges posed by IoT and to the very serious threats of new kinds of cyberattacks that might target the newly connected — and sometimes more vulnerable — types of devices.
