Internet of Things: Future of Cloud Computing

Hirra Sultan


Information Communication Technologies (ICT) practices are growing exponentially resulting in abundant availability of computation, resources and processing are available abundantly at a specific cost. Over the last decade, cloud computing has been changed from connecting devices over internet to Internet of Things (IoT). IoT is commonly known as ‘things’ connected over internet for achieving a common goal such as processing, computation or information sharing. IoTs are connected devices such as RFID tags, sensors, mobile phones etc. having unique addressing schemes and coordinating computation to achieve a desired result. According to a study, it is expected that there will be 50 billion devices considered to be connected as IoT devices in distributed environment. Its applications are imminent in developing smart cities, smart retail markets, automated vehicles, real time traffic navigation, drone surveillance, environmental monitoring etc. Though there will be specific tradeoffs and costs implied over abundant availability of the computationally equipped devices. These tradeoffs may be resolved or become challenges in the growth and widespread adaptability of IoTs devices. Few of the issues include implementing framework, security, privacy, trust negotiation etc. In this paper, we discuss about IoT, its evolution, issues, concerns and challenges currently faced while implementing IoTs in distributed environment over the cloud.
