The Internet of Things (IoT) extends the end node far beyond the human-centric world to encompass specialiSed devices with human-accessible interfaces, such as smart home thermostats and blood pressure monitors. And even those without human interfaces, including industrial sensors, network-connected cameras and traditional embedded systems.
As IoT grows, the need for real-time scalability to handle dynamic traffic bursts also increases. There also may be the need to handle very low bandwidth small data streams, such as a sensor identifier or a status bit on a door sensor or large high-bandwidth streams such as high-def video from a security camera. Consider the following examples and the applicability of network-connected device to IoT.
