In case you are not familiar with this acronym, IoT stand for the “Internet of Things.” IoT is the connection of multiple and various “things” (everyday devices, equipment and other objects) via the Internet to keep people informed about what is going on. A key element in the Internet of Things is that the monitoring and reporting back on these “things” over the “Internet” is done automatically and passively while we go about our dreary lives.
OTT is the acronym for “Over the Top.” There has been significant increase in sales of, and applications for, OTT products and services. So, naturally, there has also been significant activity in patents covering different aspects of Over-the-Top technology. OTT is past the stage of being an emerging technology. It is here, and it is affecting our lives each and every day, so OTT patents are hot!
