As the Internet of Things (IoT) gains momentum, there is a need for a suite of connected products and services that have awareness of each other and their surroundings. To help satisfy this need, Intel defined and released the Intel® IoT Platform, which includes reference architectures and a portfolio of products from Intel and the ecosystem. To guide the development and deployment of IoT Solutions, Intel has defined reference architectures for the IoT solution, which addresses requirements for data and device security
, device discovery, provisioning
and management, data normalization, analytics
, and services. These reference architectures are designed for two use cases: one for connecting legacy infrastructure —’Connecting the Unconnected#8217;, and another for building infrastructure #8217;Smart and Connected Things.#8217; This white paper discusses both reference architectures and associated products from Intel.
