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.
@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.
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.
