Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) is a novel paradigm that is rapidly growing in modern wireless telecommunications. IoT means a world-wide network of interconnected objects uniquely addressable, sustainable and enhance able. It is defined as integration of several technologies, and communications solutions based on standard communication protocols. The main strength of the IoT idea is the high impact it will have on several aspects of everyday-life and behavior of potential users. This promising technology comes with great challenges and leads to numerous research directions for industry as well academia.
