5C-IoT Cloud-Based Services and C-IoT User Device Diversity

5.1 C-IoT Cloud-Based Services

5.1.1 Introduction and Drivers to C-IoT Service Platform

Internet of Things (IoT) vision is expected to be distributed cloud-based computing, advanced sensors and big-data analysis.

5.1.1.1 RFID and Sensor Network

In the IoT paradigm, many of the objects that surround us will be on the network in one form or another. Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) and sensor network technologies will rise to meet this new challenge, in which information and communication systems are invisibly embedded in the environment around us. These result in the generation of enormous amounts of data, which have to be stored, processed and presented in a seamless, efficient, and easily interpretable form. This model will consist of services that are commodities and delivered in a manner similar to traditional commodities. Cloud computing can provide the virtual infrastructure for such utility computing which integrates monitoring devices, storage devices, analytics tools, visualization platforms, and client delivery. The cost-based model that Cloud computing offers will enable end-to-end service provisioning for businesses and users to access applications on demand from anywhere.

Advancement in technology in the networking and telecom areas drives a new wave of architectural design and new Market Opportunities. More details are provided in [1].
