Article 1

IoT and Blockchain Convergence: Benefits and Challenges

Ahmed Banafa

The Internet of Things (IoT) as a concept is fascinating and exciting, but one of the major challenging aspects of IoT is having a secure ecosystem encompassing all building blocks of IoT-architecture. Understanding the different building blocks of IoT, identifying the areas of vulnerability in each block and exploring technologies needed to counter each of the weaknesses are essential in dealing with the security issue of IoT.

 


Article 2

IoT: a Mobile Network Operator Perspective

Giovanni Perrone and Massimo Vecchio

The world that is shaping in front of us brings visions of hyper-connectivity or, to put it another way, of an incredibly large number of connections between the different elements of the world that we see. The skeleton supporting IoT is, at the end of the day, exactly that: a dense network of connections between a multitude of points that makes possible a level of vision, perception, awareness and, last but not least, control on the world that surrounds us that was simply not possible even to think about before.

 


Article 3

IoT for Electric Power: Smart Grid was the Beginning

Jeffrey S. Katz

For many electric power utilities, the Smart Grid was their first Internet of Things project. Just as some early smart grid projects were started before the term became popular, and were originally known as the intelligent utility network, or advanced distribution automation, so too was smart grid an early version of internet of things for utilities.

 


Article 4

Internet of Things for Buildings that Make Life Safe and Secure

Takumi Ito, Mikio Hasegawa and Takashi Nakajima

Recently, there have been numerous discussions about the Internet of Things (IoT) delivering benefits in a variety of areas such as the provision of more comfortable human lifestyles and improvements in business efficiency. Most of the discussed topics and interests are focused on the development of specific underlying technologies.
