Tailoring IoT platforms to the requirements of specific use cases

whitePaper | 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.
