The Internet of things is undoubtedly the new revolution in the digital world. The applications of the IoT will have large implications in our daily lives and production processes. However, to this date, there is no yet consensus on architectures, procedures, protocols, security and privacy enforcing mechanisms, and support for quality of service. The years to come will see important efforts for interoperability, standardization, regulation and certification of IoT services. Architectures, models, interfaces, and protocol design play an important role in infrastructure design for the IoT. Major players in technology are currently developing business models and their own proprietary solutions. International standardization bodies are also addressing architectural issues for the future IoT. In addition, new physical and resource management technologies such as 5G are envisioned that will enable massive implementation of IoT solutions with reduced delay, improved capacity, and higher energetical efficiency. There are many open issues on which architecture models, interfaces, and protocols will coexist in the future IoT. Many of the stakeholders are the new technological framework. There is, therefore, a huge need to investigate the best solutions, compare the existing approaches, identify open issues, and evaluate the roadmap for IoT.
