A Review on Future of IoT Networks

A. Stephen Raj, S. Subhasini


The introduction of mobile devices has altered our regular lifes. They allow users to acquire data even in a nomadic environment and supply in turn without boundaries. A decade after the beginning of this technology, we are now in front of the next improvement that will transform our daily lives. With the introduction of the Internet of Things (IoT), our communication ability will not be restricted to only mobile devices. Rather, it will increase to all effects with which we coexist. Many review have discussed IoT-related services and platforms. However, there are only demerits discussions about the IoT network. In this paper, we will thoroughly examine the technical details particularly about the IoT network. Related on our survey of papers, we will make available insight about the future IoT network and the vital mechanism that will enable it.
