Tutorial-1: Basics of IoT

Reduan Hasan Khan
Head of Internet of Things (IoT), Grameenphone Ltd, Bangladesh

Summary of the Tutorial:

Smart cars, smart homes, smart cities — you’ve probably heard some of these terms lately, and you’re going to hear them even more as time goes by. But what are these things exactly — and what makes them so smart?
These devices are all part of a fast-growing trend in technology called the Internet of Things, or IoT for short. At its very basic level, IoT refers to the connection of everyday objects to the Internet and to one another, with the goal being to provide users with smarter, more efficient experiences.
But as with any new technology, IoT can be confusing and intimidating for those who want to learn more.
This tutorial is aimed to demystify IoT — describing the end-to-end IoT architecture comprised of sensors, networks, data aggregation, analytics and applications, and to share some ideas on how to create an IoT solution from the scratch.
