The internet of things is a global infrastructure for technology, enabling services by connecting things based on existing and evolving information and communication (Brown, 2015). After checking useful websites and reviewing books and articles, I recommend M-Global should include a new department for internet of things. The department will conveniently manage our technological connections as well as improve communication with other companies and government agency’s equipment. This report highlights advantages and disadvantages of the new department, costs, and facts about the current and future of the internet of things.
The five main usages of internet of things would be the following: Optical Tags and Quick Response Codes, Bluetooth Low Energy, RFID and Near-Field Communication, Wi-Fi, and Li-Fi.
Optical Tags and Quick Response Codes (QR codes)
A useful example of internet things includes the low cost tagging method offered by Quick Response codes. These codes can be used anywhere from newspapers, magazines, coupons, and billboards. They utilize the high resolution cameras found in modern smartphones. The QR code is decoded using image-processing techniques yielding a number, text or URL (Brown, 2015). The internet of things department could help create QR codes to manage the specifications as well as keeping track of our equipment. In addition, on advertisements, we can place a QR code to allow clients to easily access our website and…
NFC and RFID
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a wireless use of electromagnetic fields to transfer data, aiming to automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. Near Field Communication (NFC) is one specific type of RFID, and shares many physical properties with it. The differences between NFC and RFID is that many extra properties were developed for NFC to enable secure mobile payments.
