Internet of Things (IoT) is a term that refers to the set of devices and systems that interconnect sensors and actuators (things) to the Internet. IoT is the next big revolution after the Internet of Computers and Internet of People (social networks). With billions of devices available,this is going to be the biggest interconnection of things. This would bring about its own set of unique challenges.

In this webinar, Afkham Azeez, director of architecture at WSO2, would be presenting a reference architecture for IoT, which can be used by architects when implementing IoT systems. The architecture would address core concerns, such as device monitoring and management, security, networking model, and so on.

Topics to be discussed

  • The importance of IoT in today’s world
  • Key aspects of reference architecture for IoT
