The Internet of Things (IoT) is a novel paradigm that is rapidly gaining ground in the area of modern wireless telecommunications. The IoT enables large numbers of previously unconnected devices to communicate and exchange data and deal with services that span areas from healthcare to transportation and much more.


With the rapid and wide-scale application of IoT, many critical challenging issues emerge and should be addressed for sustainable development. For example, massive sensor data that have converged have to be processed efficiently and intelligently with the help of advanced computing power, such as cloud computing framework; also the defence of severe IoT-attacks (e.g. the recent Mirai ‘IoT’ botnet attack) call for innovative security strategies and technologies. The aim of this special issue is to explore the research advances and provide state-of-the-art papers on the principle, methodology, implementation, and usage of intelligent IoT and related technologies.


We invite researchers to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will seek the continuing efforts to understand the novel techniques that lead to future improvements for The Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm.
