The book outlines the background and overall vision for the Internet of Things (IoT) and M2M communications and services, including major standards. Key technologies are described: everything from physical instrumentation devices to the cloud infrastructures used to collect data, derive information and map it to current processes, as well as system architectures and regulatory requirements. Real world service use case studies provide the hands-on knowledge needed to successfully develop and implement M2M and IoT technologies sustainably and profitably. Finally, the future vision for M2M technologies is described, including prospective changes in relevant standards. Key technologies and standards explained: The M2M and IoT services space includes technologies from the perspective of several technology sectors, namely IT, Telecom and Urban Planning. These sectors contain a vast number of potential technologies among which a handful of them are important and relevant for the problem at hand. This book provides a handy reference for all parties involved in the selection, development and integration of such technologies. .
