Internet of Things, also known as IoT, is a concept of a wider implementations of internet. Some of the advantages is data sharing, remote control, and etc. Include things in physical life. For example is in food and beverages, electronic, collection, equipment tools, also physical things that are connected to local and global network through sensor and stay active.
The Internet of Things began to be recommended by Kevin Ashton on 1999 and started popular through Auto-ID centre in MIT. It keeps growing as today we can see Internet of Things implementation in our home and daily life. University student also use Internet of Things as their project.
Basically, IoT platform has similar features and basic needs as any other platform to build Internet of Things devices. Some IoT platform provides basic service of a platform. But the main use of IoT Platform is to ease developer/maker to build solution faster by using a platform (IaaS, PaaS, or BaaS) to get lower cost infrastructure.
With many people developing Internet of Things devices, IoT Platform is getting popular and people wants to use IoT Platform to ease their process in building IoT system.
Internet of Things includes many infrastructure which makes devices connected to the Internet, such as electronic embedded, software, sensors, actuators, and network connection.
Real Time Storage Data – Internet of Things technology needs integration with data storage (Cloud Storage), where data storage from sensor or data from other devices need a real time data storage. It is because IoT’s main focus is data streaming.
IoT Protocol Connection – Protocol Internet of Things from every device might be different. This makes developer must do many changes and data conversions.
Data Processing – Internet of Things is focused on faster data processing to make a real time data insight.
Analytic’s – Statistic processing and data management by various data connections and hardwares have to make a result about accurate data analytic.
IoT Platform has became one of regular tools. Most developers will use IoT Platform to develop their product and solution also help them scale up globally. IoT Platform is simply helping engineers to build their Internet of Things project faster and also manage them regularly. This includes building engagement with their user.
