Mastering Internet of Things

By: Peter Waher

Overview of this book

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the fastest growing technology market. Industries are embracing IoT technologies to improve operational expenses, product life, and people's well-being. Mastering Internet of Things starts by presenting IoT fundamentals and the smart city. You will learn the important technologies and protocols that are used for the Internet of Things, their features, corresponding security implications, and practical examples on how to use them. This book focuses on creating applications and services for the Internet of Things. Further, you will learn to create applications and services for the Internet of Things. You will be discover various interesting projects and understand how to publish sensor data, control devices, and react to asynchronous events using the XMPP protocol. The book also introduces chat, to interact with your devices. You will learn how to automate your tasks by using Internet of Things Service Platforms as the base for an application. You will understand the subject of privacy, requirements they should be familiar with, and how to avoid violating any of the important new regulations being introduced. At the end of the book, you will have mastered creating open, interoperable and secure networks of things, protecting the privacy and integrity of your users and their information.

Proposing a solution

So, if our model of representational government is kept intact, a decentralized interoperable infrastructure respecting ownership of data and things is inevitable. It is just a question of time. But how much time, and what technology should such an infrastructure be based on? There's a plethora of devices and communication protocols in use already. Do they have to be updated or become obsolete?

To solve some of these questions, IEEE formed a working group called the IEEE Devices and Systems Harmonization Working Group, which hosts a project named Standard for Harmonization of Internet of Things (IoT) Devices and Systems. The objectives of this group and project is to find the underlying common denominator between different technologies and propose a means to harmonize these technologies so they can interact in one unified network.

Developing standards

To provide a truly interoperable infrastructure, all aspects of it need to be standardized. Nothing can be proprietary or...
