In the overall Internet of Things (IoT), most of the emphasis has been on wireless communications, with plenty of opinions on the suitability of various transport options. For example, some IoT applications may benefit from leveraging existing Wi-Fi/IEEE 802.11 infrastructure; some may require a mesh-based approach such as IEEE 802.15.4 to use lower power but still get coverage; some applications looking for interoperability could benefit from using ZigBee profiles on top of 802.15.4; others may benefit from energy harvesting wireless technologies such as EnOcean; and still others might be best suited to using a point-to-point cellular connection approach.
