From Machine-to-Machine to the Internet of Things

Introduction to a New Age of Intelligence

This book outlines the background and overall vision for the Internet of Things (IoT) and M2M communications and services, including major standards. The M2M and IoT services space includes technologies from the perspective of several technology sectors, namely IT, Telecom and Urban Planning. The book covers everything from sensors, actuators and devices used for instrumenting the physical world through sensor networks, wide area and cellular networks to the cloud-based infrastructures containing software to collect and process the vast amount of different data produced. Real world service use case studies provide the hands-on knowledge needed to successfully develop and implement M2M and IoT technologies sustainably and profitably. Finally, the future vision for M2M technologies is described, including prospective changes in relevant standards.
