st exciting and dynamic areas of IT. IoT involves the linking of physical entities (“things”) with IT systems that derive information about or from those things which can be used to drive a wide variety of applications and services. Internet of Things is enabled by the scalability of cloud computing.

The CSCC authors wrote this deliverable to define architectures, systems principles, and operations for Internet of Things.
