Internet of Things (IoT) enables intelligent dialogue between applications and objects through the network. Analysts estimates forecast that the number of objects connected to the Internet on a global scale will be between 26 and 30 billion around 2020.
The challenge posed by this technological trend is to enable communication between scattered objects that are based on different communication technologies, creating specific or vertical applications for contexts ranging from mobility to energy and infrastructure.
IoT solutions differ depending on use cases, device technologies and network connectivity.
However, it is possible to recognize some common elements, such as security issues.
