Key Features

  • Shows in detail how connecting smart objects impacts our lives with practical implementation examples and case studies
  • Provides an in depth understanding of the technological and architectural aspects underlying smart objects technology
  • Offers an in-depth examination of relevant IP protocols to build large scale smart object networks in support of a myriad of new services


Smart object technology, sometimes called the Internet of Things, is having a profound impact on our day-to-day lives. Interconnecting Smart Objects with IP is the first book that takes a holistic approach to the revolutionary area of IP-based smart objects. Smart objects are the intersection of networked embedded systems, wireless sensor networks, ubiquitous and pervasive computing, mobile telephony and telemetry, and mobile computer networking. This book consists of three parts, Part I focuses on the architecture of smart objects networking, Part II covers the hardware, software, and protocols for smart objects, and Part III provides case studies on how and where smart objects are being used today and in the future. The book covers the fundamentals of IP communication for smart objects, IPv6, and web services, as well as several newly specified low-power IP standards such as the IETF 6LoWPAN adaptation layer and the RPL routing protocol. This book contains essential information not only for the technical reader but also for policy makers and decision makers in the area of smart objects both for private IP networks and the Internet.


Networking and wireless engineers and researchers with functions or titles that include communication engineer, network architect, network designer, systems engineer, network operator, network engineer, as well as product managers and service companies to CEOs, CIOs, etc.

Quotes and reviews

"JP Vasseur and Adam Dunkels have written an important and timely guide to the rapidly developing field of smart technologies and the Internet. This book provides a clear picture of key technical issues that are useful to both the expert and layman. As we continue to build out the smart grid, the 'electric internet,' I predict this book will become required reading for electric utility smart grid teams." - David Mohler, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Duke Energy

"As the CEO of my company, I have read it with pleasure and will transfer it to all engineers in my company in charge of developing IP V6 applications." - Paul Bertrand, Board member and founder of IPSO (IP for Smart Objects), Creator and Chairman at Watteco

"The authors of this book offer a rich and thoughtful exploration of this new Internet canvas on which the 21st Century will unfold. Prediction will be hard; we are all just going to have to live through it to find out what happens!" - Vinton Cerf, Internet Pioneer
