This book brings together timely, mind provoking, and comprehensive materials to give you a better understanding of the IoT/M2M technological and business landscape on top of Cloud computing … . I also believe this book, which I highly recommend, is the first on the market that covers almost all of the related subjects.

If you are reading this review, you probably already heard something about IoT, and about how it underpins the next wave of IT revolution.

Among all the IoT related topics, one things still confused many people, or at least me, is that how to monetize this opp. since the IoT ecosystem is much more diversified and complicated than any of the other industries such as mobile internet . There are lots of IoT/M2M related books out there, but large portion of them focus on either the device layer or single vertical market applications, and hence lack of a comprehensive understanding on how to work stakeholders in the ecosystem to build and deploy a device to cloud solution.

In contrast, this book offers a comprehensive overview of each component of the Internet of Things ecosystem, which I believe is important for people to understand the real concept of IoT. Much of the text consists of describing how to catalogue the IoT applications (M2M, RFID, WSN, and Industry automation)and how to build a horizontal platform to support these vertical markets. And finally, lots of valuable examples and vertical applications are provided in this book.

Basically, this book is an impressive piece of work, and the first section alone is worth the price in time saved sifting through standards documents and market research reports. This is probably the only book that can give a complete and concrete picture of what the real Internet of Things will be. There are very few people I know, quite possibly none, that can discuss this topic from the device to cloud layer with corresponding examples so I know that anyone interested in what the Internet of Things actually is will learn something from this book. I certainly did. But most important, it will allow anyone that mentions the term Internet of Things to actually know what they're talking about.

The hype of Internet of Things starts to fade because people can not really differentiate IoT from traditional M2M applications. The author gets the key, that is, middleware is where the differences are. IoT is supposed to be a middleware platform that connects physical world objects to Internet application ubiquitously.
The author demonstrates his broad experiences in middleware development for service oriented architecture over Internet, which matches the vision of future IoT development. This book is especially useful for industrial people who would like to understand the core technology of IoT and plot the M2M strategies for their corporations.
