SOLUTION AT Academic Writers Bay

The Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming increasingly popular in both business and everyday life. • • • • Explain what the Internet of Things (IoT) is and provide a brief history, in your own words, of the IoT. Discuss the potential impact that IoT can have on how people live. Select a company and explain how the organization has benefited from the IoT. Detail specific examples of how the company benefited. How has the IoT been impacted by the pandemic? Explain specific examples. Your well-written report should be 6 pages in length, not including the title and reference pages. To make it easier to read and therefore grade, make sure you clearly delineate each section of your answer so it can be matched with the relevant question. Use Saudi Electronic University academic writing standards and APA style guidelines, citing at least two references as appropriate. Review the grading rubric to see how you will be graded for this assignment.

Copyright ©2018 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 3 Common Network Types Acronym Type Characteristics Example LAN Local Area Network Short distance connection Office School Home WAN Wide Area Network Spans large physical distance Internet Large company WLAN Wireless LAN LAN based on Wi-Fi technology Internet Large company Copyright ©2018 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 4 Intranets, Extranets, and Virtual Private Networks • Intranets are used within a company for data access, sharing, and collaboration. • Extranets are private, company-owned networks that can be logged into remotely via the Internet. • Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are used where security of transmissions is a concern, because they encrypt the packets before they are transferred over the network. Copyright ©2018 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 5 Virtual Private Networks A virtual tunnel routed through the Internet with software and hardware encryption. Copyright ©2018 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 6 Network Terminology • Modem: a device that modulates/demodulates signal for transportation • Modulation and Coding: Techniques used by modem to adapt the signal to the media • Signal: Binary information we want to send. • Signal Frequency Spectrum: All the frequency components of a signal • Media Bandwidth: Limit in range of frequency signals • Capacity Bandwidth: Maximum bits per second that can be transmitted Copyright ©2018 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 7 Figure 4.4 Basic functions of business networks Copyright ©2018 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 8 Quality of Service (QoS) • Latent-sensitivity: data such as real-time voice and high-quality video. • Prioritized Traffic: data and apps that are time-delaysensitive or latency-sensitive apps. • Throttle Traffic: gives latency-sensitive apps priority, other types of traffic need to be held back (throttled). • Traffic Shaping: the ability to prioritize and throttle network traffic. Copyright ©2018 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 9 The Net Neutrality Debate • Net neutrality is the principle that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and their regulators treat all Internet traffic the same way. • Traffic shaping prioritizes the flow of traffic by delaying the flow of less important network traffic. • In 2010, the FCC ruled in favor of “net semi-neutrality”, not explicitly forbidding paid prioritization. • The FCC under the current administration may take further steps to roll back net neutrality rulings, which could favor the cable companies over consumers.

Each devise attached to a network has a unique IP address that enables it to send and receive files made up of packets. Copyright ©2018 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 13 IP Addresses and Packets Figure 4.5: IPv4 addresses have four groups of four alphanumeric characters, which allows for 232 or roughly 4.3 billion unique IP address. IPv6 addresses have eight groups of alphanumeric characters, which allows for 2128 , or 340 trillion, trillion addresses. IPv6 offers also enhanced quality of service that is needed by the latest in video, interactive games, and e-commerce. Copyright ©2018 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 14 Broadband Technology: 3G/4G/5G • 3G networks support multimedia and broadband services over a wider distance and at faster speeds than prior generation networks. They use large satellite connections to telecommunication towers. • 4G networks are digital, or IP, networks that enable even faster data transfer rates. 4G delivers average realistic download rates of 3 Mbps or higher (as opposed to theoretical rates, which are higher). • 5G networks, the coming generation of broadband technology. 5G will dramatically increase the speed at which data is transferred across the network. Copyright ©2018 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 15 Network Technology Standards • WiMAX IEEE 802.16 o 30-mile range o 70 Megabits per second (Mbps) o Line-of-site not required o Same principles as Wi-Fi (using radio signals) o • Long-Term Evolution (LTE) GSM deployed by Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile o 100 Mbps downlink, 50 Mbps uplink o Copyright ©2018 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 16 Circuit vs. Packet Switching • Circuit switching o o Older technology that originated with telephone calls Inefficient for digital transmission • Packet Switching o o o Transfers data or voice Files are broken into packets, numbered sequentially, routed individually to their destinations When received at the destination, the packets are reassembled into their proper sequences Copyright ©2018 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 17 Application Programming Interfaces and Operating Systems • Application Program Interface (API) consists of a set of functions, commands, and protocols used by programmers for OS-interactivity without having to write a program from scratch. • Can be automated for simplified usability o o o Twitter Facebook Amazon Copyright ©2018 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 18 Figure 4.7 API value chain in business.
