Intelligent processing with smart devices and informative communications in everyday tasks brings an effective platform for the internet of things (IOT). Internet of things is seeking its own way to be the universal solution for all the real-life scenarios. Even though many theoretical studies pave the basic requirement for the internet of things, still the evidence-based learning (EBL) is lacking to deal with the application of the internet of things. As a contribution of this chapter, the basic requirements to study about internet of things with its deployment architecture for mostly enhanced applications are analyzed. This shows researchers how to initiate their research focus with the utilization of internet of things.
Chapter Preview


The future Internet comprises not only the millions of compute machines, personal/ professional electronic devices and distributed software services but also the billions of diminutive sensors, actuators, robots, etc. and finally the trillions of sentient or digitized objects. It is an overwhelmingly accepted statement that the fast-emerging and evolving IoT idea is definitely a strategic and highly impactful vision to be decisively realized and passionately sustained with the smart adaption and adoption of state-of-the-art technologies, composite and cognitive processes, optimal and versatile infrastructures, integrated platforms, enabling tools, pioneering patterns, and futuristic architectures. Industry professionals and academicians are constantly looking out for appropriate use, business and technical cases in order to confidently and cogently proclaim the transformational value and power of the IoT concept to the larger audience of worldwide executives, end-users, entrepreneurs, evangelists, and engineers.

A growing array of open and industry-strength standards are being formulated, framed and polished by domain experts, industry consortiums and standard bodies to make the IoT thought more visible, viable and valuable. National governments across the globe are setting up special groups in order to come out with pragmatic policies and procedures to take forward the solemn ideals of IoT and to realize the strategic significance of the envisioned IoT in conceiving, concretizing and providing a bevy of next-generation citizen-centricservices to ensure and enhance peoples’ comfort, choice, care, and convenience. Research students, scholars and scientists are working collaboratively towards identifying the implementation challenges and overcoming them via different means and ways especially standard technological solutions.

In this chapter, we would like to give a broader perspective of what exactly is the idea of IoT, as well as trends setting the stimulating stage for the IoT realization and demonstration, why it has to be pursued with all seriousness and sincerity, what are the prickling and prime concerns, changes and challenges associated with it, where it will be applied extensively and expediently, what is the near and long-term future, the key benefits, nightmares, risks, etc.
