Published on: 10 September 2016
This document provides a standardized IoT reference architecture using a common vocabulary, reusable designs and industry best practices. It uses a top down approach, beginning with collecting the most important characteristics of IoT, abstracting those into a generic IoT conceptual model, deriving from the conceptual model to a high level system based reference model and then breaking down from reference model to the five architecture views (functional view, system view, user view, information view and communication view) from different perspectives. This document can be served as a base on which to develop specific IoT applications. Therefore the target readers are engineers and technical managers who are going to develop or design IoT applications.
