Device

A Device means any ‘thing’ connected to or capable of being connected to the internet. These ‘things’ include mobile phones, tablets, phablets (phones that are tablets), fridges, glasses (such as google glasses), smart meters (such as those in your home), mobile stereo systems, ipods. This proliferation of ‘things’ is making things more convenient for us to do and use, but it is also increasing our vulnerability both individually and for companies. It is called ‘the internet of things’ and facilitated by IPv6.
