The IoT is able to deliver business unique benefits ranging from such as selling product usage as a service operational improvements, such as predictive maintenance, to digital business transformation
The Internet of Things is a highly unique foundational capability for the creation of a new digital business and World
The internet in 27 years ago suddenly changed. The way that we do business: from one day to another, companies could work faster and more cost efficient. We find ourselves once again on the verge of such a drastic shift in business opportunities in the very near future.
The Industrial Revolution began the hundred years before. After that, we have reached on a critical threshold in the evolution of computing. 30 billion devices over the next three years will be connected to the internet, the majority of which will not be computers, tablets or smartphones, but newly invented tools to monitor, filter, optimize, control, analyse and improve the entire business world.
The IoT is a concept and a paradigm that considers pervasive presence in the environment of a variety of things/objects that through wireless and wired connections and unique addressing schemes are able to interact with each other and cooperate with other things/objects to create new applications/services and reach common goals.
The goal of the Internet of Things is to enable things to be connected anytime, anyplace, with anything and anyone ideally using any path/network and any service.
The IoT will have a great impact on the economy by transforming many enterprises into digital businesses and facilitating new business models, improving efficiency and increasing employee and customer engagement.
The IoT refers to the use of intelligently connected devices and systems to leverage data gathered by embedded sensors and actuators in machines and other physical objects.
The IoT is expected to spread very rapidly within the years and this convergence will unleash a new dimension of services that improve productivity of enterprises and the quality of life of consumers, unlocking an opportunity.
The IoT has the potential to deliver solutions that dramatically provide to improvement for energy efficiency, security, health, education and many other aspects of daily life. For enterprises, IoT is able to underpin solutions that provide to improvement for productivity and decision-making in retail, agriculture, manufacturing, and so on
In generally, back-end services and the wide variety of delivery forms are able to make it difficult to identify how to capture business’s real value. Your first step would be to move the conversation from talking about the IoT in general to uttering about what it is able to do in your organization.
The IoT is able to deliver business unique benefits ranging from such as selling product usage as a service operational improvements, such as predictive maintenance, to digital business transformation, IoT use cases focused on delivering cost savings from energy, labour, maintance and fuel, often have significant financial impact.
- The IoT architect in your company would be responsible for
- To design an edge-to-enterprise IoT architecture
- To establish processes for operating and constructing IoT solutions
- To collaborate and engage with stakeholders to establish an IoT vision and define clear business objectives
- To work with the organization’s architecture and technical teams to deliver value
What is Communication Model of IoT?
It is very critic to know how IoT devices communicate and connect in terms of their technical communication models.
Device to Cloud Communication Model
In this model, the IoT device connects directly to an Internet cloud service. Cloud provider’s provide application service to and control message traffic exchange data. This approach commonly takes advantage of existing communications ways like traditional wired Ethernet or Wi-Fi connections to establish a connection between the device and the IP network, which connects to the cloud service.
Back End Data Sharing Communication Model
This model shows a communication architecture. What we know is that this is an extension of the single device to cloud communication model. This model allows the data collected from any single IoT device data streams to be aggregated and analysed.
What effectiveness of this model is architectural structure to allow us to move our data when we switch between IoT services, breaking down traditional data silo barriers?
Device to Device Communication Model
This model represents more than two devices that directly connect and communicate between one another, rather than through directly application server. These devices communicate over many types of networks, including the Internet or any IP networks. Usually, these devices use protocols like Bluetooth, ZigBee or Z-Wave to establish direct device to device communications. This model is generally used in applications like home automation systems
Device to Gateway Communication Model
There is application software operating on a local gateway device, which acts as an intermediary between the device and the cloud service and provides security and other functionality such as data or protocol translation.
The model employed with popular consumer item as known personal fitness trackers. These device does not have the native ability to connect directly to a cloud service, so they frequently rely on smartphone app software to serve as gateway to connect the fitness device to the cloud
The evolution of systems using the DtoG communication model and its larger role in addressing interoperability challenges among IoT devices is still opening out.
The IoT makes new security challenges for enterprise companies in both scope and scale. Embedded hardware security provides IoT project leaders with a new approach of tools to determine these new security requirements.
Secure network scale: the number of IoT endpoints will dwarf those in traditional IT projects. Managing the network connections securely and data across these devices requires a scalable solution
Physical security and data security: Building security into the data itself, whether it is in transit or at rest, is really valuable in the IoT, given the lack of physical security that might resists tampering for most devices.
Device identity: The IoT requires very strong device identity and root of trust at its foundation
What does the smart environments means for IofT
Smart City: Smart city will give the quality of life in the city improvement by making it easier and more convenient for the residents to obtain details of interest.
Smart Agriculture: It will enable the farmers to contend with the enormous challenges they face before. The industry must overcome highly increasing water shortages, difficult to manage cost, limited availability of lands, while meeting the increasing consumption needs of a global population that is expected to grow by 69% in 2050.
Smart Home: Personal life-style of every people is going on improvers, at homes by making it more time saving and simpler to monitor and operate home appliances and smart home device
Smart Healthcare: Healthcare applications are improved in many countries and paying more attention for every citizens, by embedding actuators and sensors in patients and their medicine for monitoring and tracking the patient’s details
Smart Industries: This IoT and Green IoT technology plays a key role in the industrial automation. Robotic devices, human participation are computerized to finalize completion tasks sooner. The machines operations, productivity rates and functionalities are spontaneously coordinated and monitored.
The IoT has the potential to progressively increase the availability of information, and also, is likely to transform organizations and enterprize companies in every industry around the Globe. As such, finding ways to leverage the power of the IoT is expected to factor into the strategic objectives of most technology companies, regardless of their industry focus.
The number of different technologies required to support the deployment and further growth of the IoT places a premium on interoperability, and has resulted in widespread efforts to develop standards and technical specifications that support uninterruptible communication between IoT components and devices
