IoT (Internet Of Things) - Definition Home : www.sharetechnote.com
To be honest, I don't know if I can call this 'Architecture' or 'Buisness Structure' or 'Business Model'. I am just a person who is interested in IoT, but my domain knowledge is very restricted. To be more specific, my domain (technical area) is with 'Connectivity' section. To be more specific, my experty is with Cellular technnology. It means my domain is just a single / thin line in the Connectivity section in the following diagram. So it is very difficult (almost impossible) for me to grasp the full picture of this industry. As I do almost always when I am trying to learn a new thing, I just watched a lot of workshops / conference /tutorial videos on YouTube and trying the understand the whole picture of IoT industry. This page will be my personal notes that I will keep updating as I learn. The first note taking started in Mar 2017.
After watching around 10 videos at first, I forgot almost every details as everybody does :). But there was a one image that is imprinted in my brain is an illustration shown below. Almost every slides in those video shows a little bit different variations but following is the one that is still remaining in my brain.
As I mentioned above, my experties is a small sector in 'Connectivity' area, but I am just a layman in Platform and Service area.
Based on my observation as of Mar 2017 and as most of the workshop video that I saw (mostly released within one year) indicates, IoT industry is at the status and it has following challenges to overcome.
