For the IoT revolution to become reality and fully deliver on its promise, numerous hurdles need first be overcome. First and foremost, there’s connectivity. In addition to overcoming the physical connectivity challenges there must also be an agreement on communication and management protocols. Adherence to a single standard will be key in enabling the success of the Internet of Things on a global basis. The need for standardization between units, especially in the home is a prerequisite for the broad adoption of smart devices.
This whitepaper explores currently existing device management standards, inter-device and proximity application frameworks, and physical short-range network connectivity standards that are expected to play a role in the realization of IoT.

The 2014 hype is certainly focused around the Internet of Things, or the Internet of Everything, or is it the Industrial Internet, the Consumer Internet or simply Machine to Machine (M2M)? While the market is still having trouble agreeing upon a name they are understandably also having trouble agreeing on the standard that should link all these connected devices.

As we head into Mobile World Congress 2014, it is becoming increasingly apparent that the knowledge and technologies conceived in the mobile industry are driving a convergence of several other industries—from M2M to automotive and the enterprise.

The Consumer Electronics Show might consider changing its name to the Connected Electronics Show. With a variety of communication protocols such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Zigbee available, and modules costing just dollars, product developers are adding connectivity to seemingly everything. As I walked around the 2014 International CES in Las Vegas, I started to envision what a day in my connected life could look like in the near future, with my smartphone at the hub.

The mobile and embedded worlds are hungry for virtualization technology as devices become increasingly more powerful and ubiquitous. Several industries, including mobile, automotive and M2M are benefitting from virtualization solutions with increased security and isolation, better migration, faster time-to-market, enhanced CPU utilization and cost savings.

Machine-to-Machine (M2M) enables all types of devices – from utility meters to cars and home appliances – to be connected and Internet-ready, reducing the cost of management, enabling faster repairs and offering a platform for innovative consumer services, such as prepaid, pay-as-you go car insurance. The range of M2M applications is impressive and the impact these applications are having on our daily lives is huge.

A few nights ago as I was sitting with family and friends in front of the large screen to watch a movie the kids created earlier that day. All of a sudden the connected computer (never mind which operating system) went into a forced software update. As we were waiting for the install, reboot, etc., I thought about the updating process.
