Definitely security is a challenge. When your home IoT devices make internet connections, people can eavesdrops easily if the connection is not secure. This can be damaging if bad guys hack your house.

A secure IoT will require the ability to automatically detect and remedy threats. This will enable optimized security in IoT environments and help build trusted models for sensitive applications.

In order to achieve a sustainable growth of IoT, the different solutions should be made more flexible. Also, different legacy interfaces and protocols should be fully integrated with new ones.

I would probably say cloud computing role in making it happen, a key factor in IOT.


@Wale, I agree with you.Since cloud computing will play a major role in IoT it will also give rise to more security challenges and companies should take necessary steps to overcome these security challenges.

As each device will need some communication platform or a network medium to connect with the environment, the role of the netwok will become more essential and the communication over the network (be it mobile or broadband) will multiply. 

@TaimoorZ, I agree with you. Although IoT doesn't require high-bandwidth network but we need Internet connectivity both indoor and outdoors. According to one Google Developer The Internet of Things will require telecom operators to turn their networks upside-down.

"I suspect, too, that there are a bunch of applications we haven't even thought of yet. The consumer apps get a bunch of attention but there's an M2M (Machine to Machine) apps that are going to be important, for example."

@Hailey: I agree with you. M2M communication essentially reflects the backbone of IoT where the idea is that every device will be able to "talk" to each other and share information to enhance their usablity. For instance, one common example is of your car being able to communicate with your garage door automatically and as soon as it's on the way towards the house, it sends a message to the door via the internet for the door to open.

I think the IoT revolution will represent a major avenue for growth for network service providers. As each device will need some communication platform or a network medium to connect with the environment, the role of the netwok will become more essential and the communication over the network (be it mobile or broadband) will multiply.

@Prabhakar, That's a great point. Power technologies are getting a lot of research, but there are still no great answers.

One of the key challenges in the proliferation of the IoT devices , from the technology point of view , is the power supply.

Mnay of these devices need to be tiny and designing tiny power supplies for them would be challenge.

many of these devices will be remotely placed and the techniques such as wireless power transfer cannot be applied.

 

So such devices will need to have their own power genrators using some kind power harvesting techniques - solar thermal, chemical etc.
