It's machine-to-machine (M2M) for the Internet Of Things (IOT) the way it was meant to be; Google Cloud IoT Core: A fully managed service to easily and securely connect, manage, and ingest data from globally dispersed devices. Cloud IoT Core is a fully managed service that allows you to easily and securely connect, manage, and ingest data from millions of globally dispersed devices. Cloud IoT Core, in combination with other services on Google Cloud IoT platform, provides a complete solution for collecting, processing, analyzing, and visualizing IoT data in real time to support improved operational efficiency.
