Internet of Things Ecosystem Explained

The Internet of Things ecosystem includes all the components that enable businesses, governments, and consumers to connect to their IoT devices. The ecosystem includes remotes, dashboards, networks, gateways, analytics, data storage, and security.

Internet of Things Terms & Definition:

  • Entity: businesses, governments, and consumers.
  • Physical layer: hardware that makes an IoT device, including sensors and networking gear.
  • Network layer: transmits the data collected by the physical layer to different devices.
  • Application layer: protocols and interfaces that devices use to identify and communicate with each other.
  • Remotes: enable entities that utilize IoT devices to connect and control them using a dashboard, such as a mobile application. Examples of remotes would be smartphones, tablets, PCs, smartwatches, connected TVs, and nontraditional remotes.
  • Dashboard: displays information about the IoT ecosystem to users and enables them to control their IoT ecosystem. It is generally housed on a remote.
  • Analytics: software systems that analyze the data generated by IoT devices. Analysis can be used for a variety of use-cases, most common would be predictive maintenance.
  • Data storage: where data from IoT devices is stored.
  • Networks: the internet communication layer that enables the entity to communicate with their device, and sometimes enables devices to communicate with each other.
