Tailoring IoT platforms to the requirements of specific use cases

April 13, 2021

The Internet of Things has evolved in the last 10-15 years from a long-term visionary idea to our current reality, present in more and more domains of our everyday lives.

Many IoT architectures and platforms are being proposed today by various academic and industrial consortia, in domains as diverse as smart manufacturing, smart homes, smart cities or smart transport, to name just a few. These different IoT platforms have many things in common, as they all rely on connecting some smart sensor and actuator devices to each other and to the Internet, providing value-added services and applications to us, human users, either directly, or in an indirect manner. However, by closely analyzing their structure and operational focus, we can observe that these IoT architectures and platforms have also special features tailored to the requirements of different use cases.

Internet of Things for Telecom Engineers

whitePaper | February 11, 2020

The Internet of Things (IoT) is no longer the future: it is the new reality moving telecommunications forward. The IoT enables physical objects to see, hear, think, and perform jobs by having them “talk” to each other, share information, and coordinate decisions. The number of internet-enabled objects has surpassed the Earth’s population. Today, the IoT connects everything from HVAC thermostats and smart homes to transportation, healthcare, industrial automation, and emergency response equipment. As the prevalence of IoT innovations grow, telecom leaders must embrace the opportunities, and challenges, posed by a more connected future.
