Internet of Things (IoT)

Now that the businesses have started to harness the data generated by the internet of things, there is a great demand for the skilled IoT engineers who can scratch the surface with a ways of IoT to offer the consumers a world of endless possibilities.

As there is a growing number of opportunities landing in the field of IoT, newbies or professionals who are looking to kick-start their career with the Internet of Things (IoT) requires more attention while getting prepared for the interviews.





To make the things bit easier for the IoT aspirants, we have framed the most commonly asked interview questions & answers in this article.

1. What is Internet of Things (IoT)?

Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of interconnected objects that uses embedded technology to sense and communicate with their internal states or the external environments. IoT is all about connecting the objects (devices) over the Internet and enabling them to interact with us and other objects.

2. Why Internet of Things (IoT)?

The real value of the IoT is not about making the lights turn on or off when the vehicle reaches its parking bay, rather the data that the connected devices gather about its users. The data collected later can allow the consumers, businesses, and connected cities to work in a more efficient manner.

3. Name the main parts/components of the Internet of Things (IoT) system.

IoT has three main parts, which are:

  1. Devices embedded with sensors
  2. Network connectivity
  3. Data storage application/system>

IoT system parts

4. How does the Internet of Things ( IoT ) work?

Internet of Things is not different from the Internet, but an extension to it. Virtual objects such as thermostats, street lights, fitness trackers, drones, etc. are the basis for IoT, which are embedded with sensors, processors and communication hardware that enables to interact and collect data from one another.

5. What does the term ‘things’ mean in the context of Internet of Things?

A ‘thing’ in the context of IoT is any physical object or an entity having an embedded unique identifier with the ability to transfer data over the network.

6. What is Internet of Everything (IoE)?

Internet of Everything (IoE) is defined as an intelligent connection of people, data, process, and things.

7. Why Internet of Everything (IoE) is important?

Internet of Everything brings people, data, process, and things together to make the networked connections more reliable and consistent than ever before- transforming the information into actions, thereby creating new opportunities and capabilities for individuals, businesses, and cities.

8. How does the Internet of Everything (IoE) relate to the Internet of Things (IoT)?

According to Cisco, Internet of Everything (IoE) builds on the foundation of the Internet of Things (IoT) by adding network intelligence, which enables orchestration, convergence, and visibility across formerly disparate systems.
Looks like a complex explanation, isn’t it? To make you understand easily, let us use a simple example of a railway transport. The IoT is equivalent to the railroad line, including the tracks and electric connections, whereas the IoE is the train, ticket machines, weather conditions, staff, and the commuters etc.

9. What is the significance of ‘network’ in the Internet of Everything (IoE)?

The role of the network is very crucial in the Internet of Everything, it offers an intelligent, secure, and manageable infrastructure to support the billions of context-aware devices.

10. What types of information do the IoT objects communicate?

IoT objects can communicate both simple and complex information, which completely relies upon the nature of the object.
For example, a smart thermostat can use a single sensor for communicating the ambient temperature to the remote weather monitoring station, whereas, a health monitoring device can use multiple sensors to communicate the temperature, heartbeat, pulse, blood pressure, etc. of a person to the medical service station via a mobile or computer.

11. What are the challenges of the Internet of Things (IoT)?

Though IoT is the next big thing happening around the globe, it includes some key challenges that make its viability more doubtful. Following are the five major challenges of the IoT.

  • Security – with the increase in the count of connected devices, the chances of getting exploited to new vulnerabilities via poorly designed devices also increase, which can expose the user’s data to theft.
  • Privacy – as the devices are connected to one another, the chances of getting it hacked are abundant. This again leads to the enhanced chances of stealing and misusing the user’s personal data.
  • Standards – lack of technology standards can allow the manufacturers to design the products to operate in any of the disruptive ways online, which can lead to negative consequences.
  • Waste Disposal – as the matter of obsolescence, million tons of e-waste is generated every year, of which only 20 percent is being recycled. This is showing an adverse effect on the environment, and ultimately affecting the human lifespan.
  • Energy Demands – Gartner predicted that the number of connected devices would reach to 25 billion by 2020. This requires the data centers more than 30 billion watts of electricity per year to power the Internet, and powering IoT with the growing energy demands will lead to the social problems.

12. What is M2M technology?

M2M literally means ‘Machine to Machine’, the technology that enables the machines and devices connected over a network to exchange information and perform actions without the human intervention.
