The reduction of costs and advancements in sensors and networks, communication standards, protocols like Bluetooth low energy (BLE), Thread (based on 6LowPAN), Z-Wave, Zigbee, have assisted in the massive surge of research interest in IoT. Additionally, cloud-Based services like data storage, data mining, application development and deployment have collectively made the process of converting IoT-based ideas into working products, significantly faster and easier. To realize the full potential of IoT synergistic efforts for the advancement of different fields such as electronics, communications, and informatics is required. This article presents an overview of underlying architecture of IoT, its security requirements, and finally different application domains such as smart cities, smart homes that will most likely be driving further research in near future of IoT. This paper addresses the people who want to quickly grasp the background of IoT and contribute towards its advancement.
