Invited Speaker

Recent Systems, Standards, and Protocols for the Internet of Things

Prof. Kwang-il Hwang
Dept. of Embedded Systems Engineering,
College of Information Technology
Incheon National University

The Internet of Things covers a huge range of industries and use cases that scale from a single constrained device up to massive cross-platform deployments of embedded technologies and cloud systems connecting in real-time. Tying it all together are numerous legacy and emerging communication protocols that allow devices and servers to talk to each other in new, more interconnected ways. At the same time, dozens of alliances and coalitions are forming in hopes of unifying the fractured and organic IoT landscape. Therefore, in this talk, recent IoT standards and protocols will be discussed: the topic will include the list of popular protocols and standards for IoT devices, apps and cloud platforms.
