 The Internet of People runs to billions of devices already. The Internet of Things will involve ubiquitous smart objects that sense and communicate directly over the internet creating better data without human intervention. Its time has come because there are now enough IP addresses available for tens of billions of items, hardware costs are now affordable and large companies are backing it.  
   
 There are far more things than people so it could overtake the IoP business eventually. In 2024, tens of billions of smart objects are likely to be involved.   Some call the Internet of Things (IoT) as encompassing the Internet of People (ubiquitous internet enabled personal electronics) but the two are very different in construction, applications and maturity.

Network Virtualization Market - Global Industry Size, Market Share, Trends, Analysis, And Forecasts 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
Network virtualization provides a powerful way to run multiple networks at the same time over a shared substrate. It is a method of combining the available resources in a network by splitting up the available bandwidth into channels. The network virtualization market is growing rapidly as it is making it easier to manage the network and reduce the time required for the administrator to perform a task. This method is proposed to increase productivity, efficiency, and job satisfactions of the administrator as many of the tasks are performed automatically, thus reducing the...
