@prabhakar_deosthali, that's true but we are only starting to scratch the surface of the IoT ecosystem, and most devices only transmitt a few kbytes of data.

Using IPV6 and a combination of 3G/4G/5G networks can support the connectivity. Bandwidth problems are occurring because heavy use of multimedia applications on mobile devices, something it didn't happen until a few years ago.

True! IPV6 will solve the problem of unique adddresses to the devices .

But what about the bandwidth requirements.

Assuming we allow free flow trafic between all the devices world wide over the internet of things , the bandwidth requirements of routers,swicthes and all those intermediataries will increase many thousand times . The wwwhole internet infrastructure will need an overhaul.

IPV6 will be the perfect solution to accomodate the requiremtn of being uniquely identified by each connected device.

Also, it will be interesting to know which organizations are driving this forward in terms of building platforms,
products. Also the role software vendors would play in this huge ecosystem.

Following up on this, I came across and registered for a webinar on Internet of Things- Driving the Next Decade http://j.mp/1lvIuQC

please have a look at 6lowpan. works have been done a lot in simplifying ipv6 for sensor nodes.

@chanj, I believe IPv6 could solve many issues. For starters it could render NAT obsolete, and allow direct IP connections to occur.

There are enough IPv6 addresses to assing an unique IP to a single brick.

IPv6 seems to be inevitable and yet, the lengthy address could be a challenge to the communication among IoT devices and gateway.

I guess the bandwidth of most IofT devices will be small, but with that many, it could stress the system.  I guess we need more digits added to the IP address now.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
