Chetan Sharma: Correcting the IoT History

In the last 5 years, IoT has entered the industry consciousness. There are varying forecasts calling for tremendous growth and revenue generation opportunities. We have argued IoT as part of the Connected Intelligence Evolution and have published a couple of papers on this topic of ongoing research. Last year, we delved into the history of IoT. Before it was fashionable to say IoT, it was M2M, and before that Telemetry and Telemetric systems.

ERICSSON: Cellular networks for Massive IoT – enabling low power wide area applications - White Papers Technology

With new standards specifically targeting the connectivity requirements of Massive Internet of Things (IoT) applications, cellular networks can deliver reliable, secure and diverse IoT services using existing network infrastructure.

In the Networked Society, every person and every industry will be empowered to reach their full potential. By delivering machine-to-machine (M2M) and machine-to-person communications on a massive scale, IoT technology is a key enabler of this vision.


ERICSSON: Bootstrapping security – the key to Internet of Things authentication and data integrity - White Papers Technology

Security will be a decisive factor in the success of the Internet of Things (IoT). However, ensuring the secure collection and transmission of IoT data remains a major challenge for this growing area.

Currently, many IoT data integrity and authentication solutions rely on extending proprietary implementations from traditional machine-to-machine (M2M) systems. Other solutions borrow traditional web mechanisms like certificates that require additional infrastructure in order to be fully effective.

Advances in Internet of Things. Article: Personal Perspectives: Individual Privacy in the IOT Authors: Johanna Virkki, Liquan Chen

The Internet of Things (IOT) is the extension of the Internet to the next level, i.e., bringing the Internet to the real physical world of things. In this research, 22 people working with different aspects of IOT development were inter-viewed in Finland and in China, in order to investigate their thoughts and personal opinions on the IOT and the indi-vidual privacy in the IOT. This paper presents the background of the IOT, interviews and collected answers, as well as highlights of collected free comments.
