Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7768)


This chapter addresses the Internet of Things (IoT); from the concept and fundamental characteristics to the advantages of machine-to-machine communications, as well as the key requirements for the IoT. Examples of the IoT are illustrated, including their core technologies. Architectural models for the IoT are presented to identify related functionalities. This chapter also introduces recent efforts towards standardization of the various technical aspects.
