IoT Application Stack

Over the last several years, stories of the technologies making up an Internet of Things have started to slip into public consciousness. As this is occurring, we believe the whole story of Smart Systems and the Internet of Things is not being told. Many of the dispatches coming in from the “front lines” of technology innovation are but fragments of a much larger narrative.

Postscapes collaborated with Harbor Research and their Smart Systems Design initiative to tell a more complete story about the elements involved in a successful IoT deployment. (View Part 1 in the series here)
