Smarter IoT concepts reveal creaking networks

The internet of things (IoT) needs its own infrastructure ecosystem — one that doesn’t use external clouds at all, researchers at the University of Magdeburg say.

The computer scientists recently obtained funding from the German government to study how to build a future-generation of revolutionary, emergent IoT systems. They say networks must be fault tolerant, secure, and traverse disparate protocols, which they aren’t now.

The researchers say a smarter, unique, and organic infrastructure needs to be developed for the IoT and that simply adapting the IoT to traditional networks won’t work. They say services must self-organize and function autonomously and that people must accept the fact that we are using the internet in ways never originally intended.
