I agree, IoT has a marketing aura to it.

IoT term is new, albeit its significance, taken literally, is not new -
Internet is made of Routers Hosts since long.

IoT is a strong keyword in EU administration when defining projects
related to Internet.

IoT has some roots in some manufacturers' vision of tracking goods on
the Internet with an RFID and Electronic Product Code.

IoT and IPv6 is an interesting mix.  One may need the other.  But only
one is defined.

IoT lives in the same space as M2M, and smart objects.
