Internet of Things

When American author and politician Bruce Barton said “Talker have always ruled. They will continue to rule. The smart thing is to join them”, probably he considered only human beings to be able to communicate. However, we understand, backed by research, that all animals and plants communicate with each other and with ever advancing technologies, it has been possible for humans to communicate effectively with the modern machines as well.
Which brings us to the question, can machines communicate with other machines? Can we envisage an environment in which objects, animals or people have communication channels which do not require human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction for interaction?
The Internet of Things(IoT) helps create an environment in which machines can interact amongst themselves or with living beings (human, animals and plants), where each entity is provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without any human-to-human or human-to-machine interaction (Wigmore, 2014). IoT is a generic term and all entities play an active role owing to their connection to the Internet. It provides access to information, media and services, through wired and wireless broadband connections. The
IoT feeds from the connections set up between the Consumer, Business and Industrial
Internet to help create new services leading to smart, efficient and more intelligent environment. The Internet of Things is not a single technology, rather it’s a conglomerate of different things and providing solution based on integration of information technology
(Vermesan and Friess, 2013). Apart from being used in new applications, the IoT also generates large amounts of data which can be put to use in various…...

...about the commencement of The Internet. The United States Department of Defense funded a project in which a team from their Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) built a network called ARPANET. The Defense Communications Agency (DCA) took over the operation of ARPANET in the 1980s which began the widespread use by colleges, government agencies and contractors to communicate and exchange data electronically. The Internet, a proper name for the global collection of publicly accessible networks, also known as the World Wide Web (WWW) runs on two networking protocols called Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). TCP ensures messages are delivered reliably while IP manages the routing of the transmissions from the sender to the receiver. TCP/IP is classified as public domain because it is owned by everyone and no one and funded by the public. A major milestone for the Internet occurred in 1992 with the number of hosts reaching one million and The Internet Society (ISOC) was chartered, the parent for the boards and task forces. The second generation proved to be successful with the creation of various forums, boards and task forces that set standards and controls for the Internet. Cloud computing emerged as a popular trend for the Internet during this period as well. Most of us are just learning about Cloud computing and asking questions like: What is it exactly? How much does it cost? Where does it reside in the Internet? How does it work? ......

...INTRODUCTION Internet of Things (IoT) is the present and next generation of the internet technologies. It is a global system of IP- connected computer networks, sensors, actuators, machines and devices. Merging this physical world with the virtual world of the internet and software enables companies and consumers to create and enjoy new services that are web based business modules. Internet of things is a practical and applicable technology trends that can generate return on investment (ROI) and insights for organizations. Internet of things concept is first proposed by Kevin Aston in 1999. This concept is not new 20 years ago one MIT professor described a world where things can connect and able to share data using devices and sensors. Now the world is having a billion of smart, connected devices. The analyst firm Gartner says that by 2020 there will be over 26 billion connected devices over the world. The IOT is a giant network of connected things that also includes people. The relationship will be among machine to machine, people to people, people to things and things to things. Machine to machine focuses on connections to devices. It captures data at end points and transmits it across local and WAN’s to generate specific alerts or actions. Technologies used in IOT: Radio frequency identification (RFID) identifies objects or people it does not require human intervention, it will read tag ID and it passes things to a host computer system. It is used in logistics and......

...| Internet of Things | 2014| Pragya Vaishwanar | Aricent Marketing Research Report | Summary It’s fair to say that more people have heard of the “internet of things” than have experienced it. More objects are becoming embedded with sensors and gaining the ability to communicate. The resulting information networks promise to create new business models, improve business processes, and reduce costs and risks. There is breathless press coverage of the phenomenon—always patiently re-explained by tech pundits as the trend by which all of one’s most mundane possessions will become internet-connected. These are invariably coupled with estimates that the internet of things will be a multi-trillion dollar business. 2014 is really, finally the year that the “internet of things”—that effort to remotely control every object on earth —becomes visible in one’s everyday lives. In a sense the internet of things is already with us. For one thing, anyone with a smartphone has already joined the club. The average smartphone is brimming with sensors—an accelerometer, a compass, GPS, light, sound, altimeter. It’s the prototypical internet-connected listening station, equally adept at monitoring our health, the velocity of our car, the magnitude of earthquakes and countless other things that its creators never envisioned. Yet despite repeated declarations one of the most successful sellers of baubles that help make your home “smart,” Smart-things, has only shipped 10,000 or so units......

...IoT (Hiremath, 2015) IoT stands for Internet of things which in itself explains that it is things that are connected to internet which include sensors, devices, actuators, transducers any equipment or material thing (further referred as THINGS ) which in some way are able to communicate via internet. There has been some kind of automation in industry, home, and office through various THINGS but IoT is a concept where in all these THINGS are connected to internet and communicate via internet and can be intervened or controlled through internet. They also intern generate data and can be stored on cloud for further processing or the data required for control mechanism of these THINGS may exist on cloud itself. The crux of such exercise is to achieve improved efficiency, effectiveness, accuracy and economic benefit. I chose not to tell you the whole story but few specific examples of IoT which will bring us on same page of thoughts and make us easily understand in future anything we come across which is related to IoT. Smart Home: Smart home widely working on ZigBee protocol (considered as most secured and safe till now) is basically automation of lights, AC, door lock, Curtains etc.. In home and also able to communicate via internet through a gateway to any smart device connected to internet like smart phone and be accessible to any authorised user so as to monitor or control home appliances sitting globally anywhere using a smart home specific application.

...Introduction Book publishing business recently has been going through lots of changes. New technologies opened doors for new competitors in industry and started to reshaping many processes. To sustain long-term profitability publishers now must respond strategically to new competition. Natural thing to do is to track your established rivals and react accordingly. However, as you scan competitive arena, are you also looking beyond your direct competitors. As Porter explains four additional forces can hurt your prospective profits. (1)    * Savvy customers can force down prices by playing you and your rivals against one another.   * Powerful suppliers may constrain your profits if they charge higher prices.   * Aspiring entrants, armed with new capacity and hungry for market share , can ratchet up the investment up the investment required for you to stay in the game .    * Substitutes offerings can lure customers away.(1) Industry prior e-books revolution Before e- books publishing industry was highly fragmented, which was also very highly labor intensive. However, as many mature industries faces significant changes with emerging new technologies, so did and publishing.   Internet and self-publishing technologies brought more fierce rivalry into market.

...INTERNET OF THINGS Introduction: The next wave in the era of computing will be outside the realm of the traditional desktop. In the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm, many of the objects that surround us will be on the network in one form or another. Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) and sensor network technologies will rise to meet this new challenge, in which information and communication systems are invisibly embedded in the environment around us. This results in the generation of enormous amounts of data which have to be stored, processed and presented in a seamless, efficient, and easily interpretable form. This model will consist of services that are commodities and delivered in a manner similar to traditional commodities. Cloud computing can provide the virtual infrastructure for such utility computing which integrates monitoring devices, storage devices, analytics tools, visualization platforms and client delivery. The cost based model that Cloud computing offers will enable end-to-end service provisioning for businesses and users to access applications on demand from anywhere. Smart connectivity with existing networks and context-aware computation using network resources is an indispensable part of IoT. With the growing presence of WiFi and 4G-LTE wireless Internet access, the evolution towards ubiquitous information and communication networks is already evident. However, for the Internet of Things vision to......
