Internet of Things: Technologies and Challenges

Speaker:  Biplab Sikdar – Singapore, Singapore
Topic(s):  Networks and Communications


The living, work, and industrial environment of the future will comprise of environments formed by extremely large numbers of devices that are producers and consumers of information, and whose interaction will be facilitated by the Internet of Things (IoT). While such networks and systems will play a critical role in facilitating the automation and improving the efficiency of a number of applications, and enhancing the efficiency of overall quality of life, there are a number of technical challenges in the way of their implementation. The most fundamental of these challenges is that of scale, resulting from the explosion in the number of devices in such networks (expected to be in the trillions according to current estimates). This talk will provide an introduction and in-depth coverage of the challenges associated with facilitating such large scale IoT systems. The talk will start with an introduction to IoT and its key enabling technologies, and challenges. Next, the talk will focus on the networking technologies for IoT, followed by data storage and analysis techniques, energy management challenges, and cyber-security issues. Finally, the talk will conclude with discussion on open issues and future trends.
