Daniel Minoli is the editor of Building the Internet of Things with IPv6 and MIPv6
The proliferation of an enlarged gamut of devices able to be directly connected to the Internet is leading to a new ubiquitous-computing paradigm: the Internet of Things (IoT).
The IoT is a new type of Internet application that endeavors to make the thing’s information (whatever that may be) available on a global scale. (Building the Internet of Things with IPv6 and MIPv6 )
It has two attributes: (i) being an Internet application, and (ii) dealing with thing’s information. The IoT is predicated on the expansion of the scope, network reach, and possibly even architecture of the Internet through the inclusion of physical, instrumented objects.
IoT aims at providing smarter services to the environment or the end-user as more in situ, transferable data becomes available. (Building the Internet of Things with IPv6 and MIPv6 )
Thus, the IoT is seen as a new-generation information network that realizes machine-to-machine communication. (Building the Internet of Things with IPv6 and MIPv6 free pdf download )
The IoT eliminates time and space isolation between geographical space and virtual space, forming what proponents label as “smart geographical space,” and creating new human-environment relationships.
The latter implies that the IoT can advance the goal of integration of human beings and their surroundings. Applications range from energy efficiency to logistics, and many more. (Building the Internet of Things with IPv6 and MIPv6 )
At the “low end” of the spectrum, the thing’s information is typically coded by the Unique Identification (UID) and/or Electronic Product Code (EPC); the information is (typically) stored in a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) electronic tag; and, the information is uploaded by noncontact reading using an RFID reader.
More generally, smart cards (SCs) will also play an important role in IoT; SCs typically incorporate a microprocessor and storage. (Building the Internet of Things with IPv6 and MIPv6 )
At the mid-range of the spectrum, one finds devices with embedded intelligence (microprocessors) and embedded active wireless capabilities to perform a variety of data gathering and possibly control functions.
On-body biomedical sensors (supporting body area networks), home appliance and power management, and industrial control are some examples of these applications. (Building the Internet of Things with IPv6 and MIPv6 )
At the other end of the spectrum, more sophisticated sensors can be employed in the IoT: some of these sensor approaches use distributed wireless sensor networks (WSNs) systems that can collect, process,
and forward a wide variety of environmental data such as temperature, atmospheric and environmental chemical content, or even low or high-resolution ambient video images from geographically dispersed locations; these objects may span a city, region, or large distribution grid.
The IoT is receiving a large amount of interest on the part of researchers, with thousands of papers published on this topic in the recent past. (Building the Internet of Things with IPv6 and MIPv6 )
While specific applications have existed for several years, perhaps supported on private enterprise networks, Internet-based systems along with system supporting a broader application scope are now beginning to be deployed.
The capabilities offered by IP Version 6 (IPv6) are critical to the wide-spread deployment of the technology. This text aims at exploring these evolving trends and offering practical suggestions of how these technologies can be implemented in the service provider networks to support cost-effective applications, and how new revenue-generating services could be brought to the market. (Building the Internet of Things with IPv6 and MIPv6 )
All the latest physical layer, MAC layer, and upper layer IoT and Machine to Machine (M2M) protocols are discussed.
Planners are asking questions such as: What is the Internet of Things? How does M2M apply? How can it help my specific operation?
What is the cost of deploying such a system? Will standardization help? What are the security implications? This text addresses the following IoT aspects: evolving wireless standards, especially low energy and medical applications; IPv6 technologies; Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) technologies; applications;
key underlying technologies for IoT applications; implementation approaches; implementation challenges; and mid-range and long-range opportunities.
More specifically, the text reviews the latest technologies, the emerging commercial applications (especially health care), and the recently evolving standards, including all layers of the protocol stack applicable to IoT/M2M. (Building the Internet of Things with IPv6 and MIPv6 )

The text focuses on extensively IPv6, MIPv6, and 6LowPAN/RPL and argues that the IoT/M2M may be the killer app for IPv6.
This text covers the latest standards supporting IoT/M2M from the perspective of Body Area Network/E-health/Assistive Technologies; it also covers over-the-air surveillance, object tracking, smart grid, smart cards, and home automation. (Building the Internet of Things with IPv6 and MIPv6 )
This is believed to be the first book on MIPv6 with applications to the IoT, especially in a mobile context.
This work will be of interest to technology investors; planners with carriers and service providers; CTOs; logistics professionals; engineers at equipment developers; technology integrators; Internet and Internet Service Providers (ISP); and telcos, and wireless providers, both domestically and in the rest of the world.
