One misconception is that IoT is a one monolithic THING, but in fact is more like a phenomena there is no simple explanation for all the technologies involved in the movement. What we all understand are the real-life applications: Smart City, Connected Cars, Lightning, Fleet Management and all the use cases in Industrial IoT.
“Initially, leaders viewed the IoT as a silver bullet, a technology that can solve the myriad IT and business problems that their organizations faced. Very quickly, though, they recognized that without the proper framing of the problems, the IoT was essentially a solution looking for a problem.”
Mark Hung, Gartner Research Vice President
Now the framing is more clear, we have several use cases where IoT is a good …show more content…
These platforms will talk to each other in any case where the information from one device have synergies with others, and just like that we have the communication era for the machines.
So, these means that is like OTT all over again? The owners of the network are already left behind?
I don’t think so. For starter OTT is essentially data over an already established consumer data connection. In this scenario, the device self-connect to the network and through an already established internet connection so, they can not do that without the mobile operators. So they will be involved from first minute.
Now, if the devices are self-connected how mobile operators will charge for the service. The answer is that there will be a significant change in who the customer is and more importantly based on what the service will be billing. The customers (from the mobile operators point of view) will be the IoT Platform owners themselves. Now the end-customer is paying for bandwidth, this new customer, will be charged based on the amount of IoT devices connected. The IoT Platform owners will translate the cost into either to the price of the good or it will be included in the subscription fee (the same way as Amazon, Netflix, etc does today) .

This paper gives a clear understanding on the current state of art on the IoT. The primary idea of the IoT concept is the pervasive existence around us of a wide range of things such as Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tags, actuators, sensors, mobile phones, etc. These are able to communicate with each other and collaborate with their neighbors to reach collective goals through distinctive addressing scheme.
While IoT devices holds much promise, there are still many security issues that need to be addressed. These security issues can have a significant impact on everyday life, such as causing damage, disruption to business operations, and in some cases even loss of life. Having all your devices interconnected using IoT such as lighting, thermostats, doors, and elevators, seems convenient but in fact this poses a great security risk. If these risks are exploited it could disrupt power or lighting which could lead to a loss of life if it were something like a hospital. Addressing these security risks will lead to more efficient and safer to use IoT devices but companies will have to identify them in their devices first (Tankard, 2015).
The Internet of Things, or IoT, is changing the health care industry by redefining how apps, devices, patients and technology interact. It also changing how providers connect with people and how hospitals deliver new health care services. Integrated health care systems reduce overhead costs, increase operational efficiency and ensure that patients are receiving better care. Better management and implementation of technology will improve treatment outcomes because patient monitoring can be done on a real time basis and digital solutions give health care providers access real time information in order to make informed decisions.
Some of the largest tech behemoths have recently joined together to make the Internet of Things a closer reality in all of our homes, cars and lives. The All Seen Alliance is seeing companies such as Cisco, Panasonic and sharp pledging to make their pipelines of new appliances and devices compatible with a networking system so machines can start
IoT is an existed technology physically. However, many challenges still face this technology to be separated widely. In this report, Internet of Things technology will be discussed, and on the most important open issues that have not been solved, or at least perfectly, will be focused on.
Section 3 will show many different examples about how many different businesses are using the Internet of Things to improve their business and provide the specifics in which they are using the devices. An example of a company that will be used in this section is Tesla. Tesla uses the Internet of Things to have their vehicles drive by themselves automatically. Tesla has many other examples of using the Internet of Things to help their business and the rest of them will be covered in that section. This section goes in depth to five different companies and explain how they have used the Internet of Things to their advantage. The five companies mentioned are Tesla, IBM, SAP, Facebook, and Comcast. Facebook has been looking into making a couple of new devices that could rival companies such as Amazon and Google with the way they plan on implementing the Internet of Things. The specifics of those devices will be analyzed more in depth in section
As a business manager it is important to understand the growth of IoT’s, because utilizing an IoT in your business can provide you with information to carry what products customers are looking to purchase. This would enable a manager to stay ahead of the competition and make more sales, by only ordering what your customers are going to buy. The IoT could help a manager make more successful business decisions.
IoT offers a platform for sensors and devices to communicate seamlessly within a smart environment and enables information sharing across platforms in a convenient manner. The recent adaptation of different wireless technologies places IoT as the next revolutionary technology by benefiting from the full opportunities offered by the Internet technology. IoT has witnessed its recent adoption in smart cities with interest in developing intelligent systems, such as smart office, smart retail, smart agriculture, smart water, smart transportation, smart healthcare, and smart energy. IoT has emerged as a new trend in the last few years, where mobile devices, transportation facilities, public facilities, and home appliances can all be used as data acquisition equipment in IoT. All surrounding electronic equipment to facilitate daily life operations, such as wristwatches, vending machines, emergency alarms, and garage doors, as well as home appliances, such as refrigerators, microwave ovens, air conditioners, and water heaters are connected to an IoT
Today 's world, increasingly connected, is introducing a wide range of commercial elements in everyday objects, from cars to our barbecue grills. However, the reality of whether we are ready to embrace the concept of IoT and enjoy it to its fullest - from a revenue perspective - is quite different.
The sudden growth in IT investment is linked with the growth of IOT and therefore naturally an era of increased investment comes with increased business opportunities. The following section describes some of the applications of the internet of things and the opportunities in which they will bring.
The current world population of over 7 billion people pales in comparison to the number of devices connected to the internet. Is estimated that over 10 billion devices were connected in 2015 and that number is expected to double or triple within the next half decade . An average person owns at least 4 network connectable device and with rapid technological growth and the internet of things (IOT) that number is only going to increase. The age of connected devices started with smart phones and tablets, but IOT brings with it a plethora of devices and gadgets from smart homes (thermostats, televisions, door bells, and refrigerators) to wearable technology (glasses, wrist watches and virtual reality headsets) to smart cities (traffic signals, smart parking and environment) and smart cars all connected and communicating through the internet. The impact of IOT has become mainstream, changing our daily lives and routines. On a broader scale, it influences business and investment decisions both in the private and public sectors, educational institutions, healthcare service providers, government and military. The use and implementation of IOT devices have brought to life the science fiction tales and dreams envisioned in the 80’s when Peter T. Lewis coined the term “Internet of things”. Lewis in his speech stated that “The internet of things, is the integration of people, processes and technology with connectable devices and sensors to enable remote monitoring,
Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging technology where absolutely “everything” (devices), are being connected to the internet in order for them to be able to communicate with each other. The internet may be the World Wide Web or any other form of connectivity used to interconnect two or more devices remotely. This is all for the benefit of mankind. Man is creating this technology and advancing it so as to benefit from it in all possible means by reducing work and taskforce and increasing productivity.
Internet of things (IoT) is becoming a hot topic in recent years. Its application is very wide which can be applied to the military, industry, agriculture, power grid and networks, transportation, logistics, energy saving, environmental
Recently, the concept of the Internet as a set of connected computer devices is changed to a set of connected surrounding things of human’s living space, such as home appliances, machines, transportation, business storage, and goods etc. The number of things in the living space is larger than the number of world population. Research is going on how to make these things to communicate with each other like computer devices communicate through Internet. The communication among these things is referred as Internet of Things (IoT). Till now, there is no specific definition or standard architecture of IoT. Some researchers define the IoT as a new model that contains all of wireless communication technologies such as wireless sensor networks, mobile networks, and actuators. Each element of IoT is called a thing and should have a unique address. Things communicate using the Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology and work in harmony to reach a common goal. In addition, the IoT should contain a strategy to determine its users and their privileges and restrictions.
The concept of the internet of things abbreviated as IoT was introduced as early as the late 90’s by Kevin Ashton, the Executive Director of Auto-ID Labs and a professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Now, “the Internet of things is already a disruptive technology capable of determining fundamental changes that are happening in everyday life, and it is considered the fourth industrial revolution.” (Hucanu) The Internet of Things (IoT)
