"If we had computers that knew everything there was to knowabout things—using data they gathered without any help fromus—we would be able to track and count everything, and greatlyreduce waste, loss, and cost. We would know when things neededreplacing, repairing or recalling, and whether they were fresh orpast their best. The Internet of Things has the potential to changethe world, just as the Internet did. Maybe even more so." —Kevin Ashton, originator of the term, Internet of Things An examination of the concept and unimagined potentialunleashed by the Internet of Things (IoT) with IPv6 andMIPv6 What is the Internet of Things? How can it help my organization?What is the cost of deploying such a system? What are the securityimplications? Building the Internet of Things with IPv6 andMIPv6: The Evolving World of M2M Communications answers thesequestions and many more. This essential book explains the concept and potential that theIoT presents, from mobile applications that allow home appliancesto be programmed remotely, to solutions in manufacturing and energyconservation. It features a tutorial for implementing the IoT usingIPv6 and Mobile IPv6 and offers complete chapter coverage thatexplains: What is the Internet of Things? Internet of Things definitions and frameworks Internet of Things application examples Fundamental IoT mechanisms and key technologies Evolving IoT standards Layer 1/2 connectivity: wireless technologies for the IoT Layer 3 connectivity: IPv6 technologies for the IoT IPv6 over low power WPAN (6lowpan) Easily accessible, applicable, and not overly technical,Building the Internet of Things with IPv6 and MIPv6 is animportant resource for Internet and ISP providers,telecommunications companies, wireless providers, logisticsprofessionals, and engineers in equipment development, as well asgraduate students in computer science and computer engineeringcourses.
