Why is a public IP required for the internet of things?
IoT needs a public internet protocol (IP) address in order to interact online.
This is often given by your internet service provider and stored in your modem or router.
All of your internal private IP address devices, such as PCs and IoT devices,
share the same public IP address.
Your smartphone carrier is in charge of managing your public IP address.
IoT devices may exchange data and connect with cloud computing apps using public IP addresses.
