Internet of Things….
IOT Meaning– Everybody is talking on IOT stuff but lots of people still doesn’t know even what the exact meaning of IOT is and what the use and How to use. Definition is Sensors will take information from real physical object and upload on Internet for processing. As of now Physical are already placed into the system and doing their JOB like- Electrical meter, Water meter, Home appliances, Car or any electronic stuff. But if sensor integrated into it which basically takes the information from the physical object and pass that relevant information on Internet for further processing or you can analysis.
Solution on IOT – There are 2 different ways to design the whole solution, one is to design wireless enable sensor object else SIM based sensor object for network communication and pass that information on Internet.
An IoT framework is a network formed by interconnected devices in any environment, for instance, home, business, or retail, to facilitate communication. It consists of four major layers: WSN, network access, operations and management, and applications
Exhibit : IoT Framework
The WSN layer consists of several components such as RFID readers, gateways, M2M terminals, and sensor nodes, which help in device and data identification. This layer identifies the message sent through a device and is also responsible for forwarding it to the network access layer.
The network access layer comprises various communication networks and is used to transfer data to and from the interconnected devices in an IoT framework. This layer consists of mobile networks, satellite networks, and dedicated line access networks. Mobile networks are of different types: GSM, CDMA, 3G, and 4G.
The operations and management layer is responsible for monitoring, managing, and analyzing network and data communication. This layer consists of a service support system and an operations support system. The service support system is responsible for network and service management. The operation support system can access terminals and applications that provide functionalities such as user authentication, billing, data analysis, and service acceptance.
The application layer consists of all the applications that are linked in the IoT framework. This layer includes applications from various sectors such as Logistics, Healthcare, Domestic, Retail, Public Safety, IT and Telecom, Energy and Power, Manufacturing, and Transportation.
An IoT framework helps provide a smart environment wherein everything in an end-user’s environment is connected to mobile devices, thus facilitating efficient management of devices. For instance, in a smart home, end-users can control air-conditioners, television sets, etc. with the help of their mobile phones even when they are away from home. This helps end-users not only save time but also manage their assets more efficiently. Smart environments can be created nearly anywhere, for instance, besides smart homes, one can have smart kitchens, smart offices, smart transportation, smart shopping, smart dining, and smart socializing environments.
Global IoT Market
The Global IoT market was valued at US$51.2Bn in 2012 and is expected to reach US$14.4Tn by 2022.
In 2012, the Americas led the market, with the US Global IoT Market by Geography being the leading revenue contributor in the Americas. The Asia Pacific (APAC) region was the second largest revenue contributor in the overall market, followed by the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region.
The Global IoT market is expected to record significant growth supported by several drivers. One of the major drivers in this market is the growing number of connected devices such as portable navigation devices, media players, and imaging devices that have cellular connections. The number of such connected devices is expected to grow from 9.3Bn in 2012 to approximately 80Bn by 2020. This will lead to a growing need for machine-to-machine (M2M) and machine to-human communication, which will lead to the growth of the Global IoT market.
What is Analytics?
Once information/Data is received from all the IOT Objects into centralized architecture where you have all the controls of the devices, with the help of codding you can plan the behavior of that Object. e.g in Winter people woke up early to start Water appliance for Warm water but through define codding that wireless switch automatically ON the device as per your schedule timing and OFF after some pre-defined time. So once you woke early morning and you always get warm water on time and could save your energy cost as well.
2nd point is centralized system observed/analyze your behavior at least for next 3 months do the analytics themselves and result would same.
