The most noticeable Internet of Things (IoT)  applications include
 

When local intelligent devices (like sensor, actuators, pumps, switches), local computing, visualization services, mobile workforce applications, need to communicate each other using the Internet, they can't be put in direct connection. This is caused by several factors:
 
     > harsh industrial environment
     > firewalls
     > NAT address translations
     > dynamic addresses behind routers
     > special local protocols routed to the Internet

Telit as a partner, has helped in the connection of GSM hardware technology, into the Cloud network, by using their m2mAir connectivity platform

 
Security concerns make it difficult to imagine a different situation even when the mentioned constrains can be avoided.
Things Platform
 
things solution includes
 
 server | network | sensors
 
things cloud server is based on a messaging broker service, enabling communication between end points in a secure and managed environment using  standard MQTT protocol.
Using a standardised protocol allows maximum compatibility with other devices and infrastructures in industry.
Normally, upstream connection from local network (i.e sensors) to the Internet and to things cloud will deploy 3G/4G, Wi-fi, ADSL routers.
 
Local Network
 
Local networks, composed by nodes, sensors, actuators may employ a number of different physical channels (wired or wireless), depending on the applications, i.e: KNX, PLC, Lonworks, 6LoWPAN, Zigbee, Bluetooth and CAN BUS in the automotive, just to name a few.
 
Sensors
Bluewind designs and provide low power sensors, i.e.  temperature, straing gauge, weight, pressure, connected via wireless or wired link.
Wireless technologies includes: Zigbee, Dust SmartmeshIP, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi.
