The traditional Internet is oriented towards P2P connection, whereas the Internet of Things (IoT) is oriented towards connection of inanimate objects. As such, IoT covers a larger range of connections and involves more semantics. Internet and telecom networks are focused on information transfer, while IoT is focused on information services. By combining sensor networks, the Internet, telecom networks, and cloud computing platforms, the Internet of Things can sense, recognize, affect, and control the physical world. The physical world can be unified with the virtual world and human perception. This lecture discusses Internet of Things technology from three perspectives: Ubiquitous information sensing, ubiquitous network convergence, and intelligent information services. ZTE will introduce the technical characteristics of IoT and sensor networks, the development background of sensor networks, and key technologies of sensor networks. ZTE's IoT platform is able to connect and manage machines, providing a dedicated network to connect devices and systems.

Hardware
Processors provide the intelligence behind IoT systems and are often integrated into system-on-a-chip designs.
Hardware that enables dual directional communication for data collection and control message delivery. Examples include cellular, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
Middleware integrates the diverse components of an IoT application by structuring communication, workflows, and business rules.
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.

ZTE's Integrated Battery-DG Hybrid Energy Storage Solution
ZTE's Integrated Battery-DG Hybrid Energy Storage Solution
For cities and companies involved in new construction or site transformations, areas with unstable or poor quality power can cause problems and diesel and other similar generators can add another one: expense. In the context of high traditional energy prices, the trend of low-carbon, energy saving, environmental protection, renewable energy will become increasingly important in the field of communications power supply. Especially along with its technology improvement, the traditional renewable energy hybrid power solution can’t fully meet with customer’s demands, especially on the energy management, energy monitoring, system upgrading, product efficiency, environment adaptability, etc.

European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI)
European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI)
The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) is an independent, not-for-profit, standardization organization in the telecommunications industry (equipment makers and network operators) in Europe. ETSI produces globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, converged, broadcast and internet technologies.We have a special role in Europe. This includes supporting European regulations and legislation through the creation of Harmonised European Standards. Only standards developed by the three ESOs (CEN, CENELEC and ETSI) are recognized as European Standards (ENs).We produce different types of standards to meet the different needs of business and society. These needs include:- facilitating trade- enabling economies and efficiencies- achieving interoperability- enhancing consumer protection and confidenceThe progress of innovation requires a balance between collaboration and competition. Standards provide a foundation to achieve this balance and help enable new technologies. We therefore maintain close links with the R&D community and academia and we support the development of new technologies through a variety of mechanisms.
Global Certification Forum (GFC)
Global Certification Forum (GFC)
The Global Certification Forum (GCF) is the organisational backbone to GCF Certification. Founded in 1999, the membership driven Forum brings together technical experts from the world's leading Manufacturers, Operators and the Test Industry. Together members define the certification requirements that really work for the industry - because they have been developed by the industry.Any device incorporating cellular mobile connectivity can be certified:- Featurephones and Smartphones- Tablets- USB Modems- Portable WiFi Hotspots- Embedded Modules- Laptops- Connected Consumer and M2M/IoT devicesThe GCF scheme evolves in sync with developments in mobile technologies and the changing needs of the industry. It is the only device certification scheme that cover all these technologies:- LTE (3GPP)- 3G UMTS (3GPP)- GSM (3GPP)- CDMA2000 (3GPP2)GCF members include leading mobile network operators representing all the key markets worldwide, over 70 device manufacturers and other stakeholders such as test system suppliers and test laboratories.GCF's current priorities are to reduce industry costs and improve end-user experience by:- Promoting adoption of GCF certification by the mobile industry in markets where it is not presently used- Promoting GCF Certification for any product that incorporates mobile connectivity- Increasing the use of GCF Certification in its current core markets in Asia Pacific, China, Europe and North America,
