What is a  complete IoT system?


The IoT architecture can be composed of four parts:


1. Things (devices): These are defined as uniquely identifiable nodes, mainly sensors, which communicate through the network without manual intervention.


2. Gateways: They act as intermediaries between things and the cloud to provide the required network connectivity, security, and manageability.


3. Network infrastructure: It consists of routers, aggregators, gateways, repeaters and other devices that control data flow.


4. Cloud infrastructure: The cloud infrastructure includes large-scale networked virtualized servers and storage pools.


Next-generation trends, namely social networking, big data, cloud computing, and mobility, have made many things possible. In addition, the integration of global trends and events is driving and promoting today's technological progress and model innovation, including:


▲Efficiency and cost reduction measures in key vertical markets


▲The government's investment incentives for this new technology


▲Reduce the manufacturing cost of smart devices


▲Reduce network connection costs


▲More efficient wired and wireless communication


▲Expanded and affordable mobile network


The Internet of Things is creating new opportunities and providing competitive advantages for companies in current and emerging markets. It touches everything-not just data, but how, when, where, and why data is collected. The technology that created the Internet of Things not only changed the Internet, but also changed what is connected to the Internet-devices and gateways at the edge of the network. They can now request services or initiate operations without human intervention. Because the generation and analysis of data is critical to the Internet of Things, data must be effectively protected throughout its life cycle. Managing this level of data is very complicated because the data will cross many management boundaries with different strategies and intents.


Considering the various technical and physical components that make up the IoT ecosystem, it is completely reasonable to treat the IoT as a system system. Building an IoT system with commercial value for enterprises is often a complex task, because enterprise architects are committed to designing integrated solutions, including edge devices, applications, transmission, protocols, and analysis functions, which constitute A fully functional IoT system.


In the next four years, spending on security solutions to protect IoT devices and systems will increase more than five times. The best platform to develop solutions for the Internet of Things requires unprecedented collaboration, coordination, and connection of every part of the system and the entire system. All devices must work together and integrate with all other devices. At the same time, all devices must communicate and interact seamlessly with connected systems and infrastructure.


A good IoT platform can:


▲Acquire and manage data to create a standards-based, scalable and secure platform.


▲Integrate and protect data to reduce cost and complexity, while protecting your investment.


▲Analyze data and extract business value from the data, and then take action on it.
