There are no easy answers to the construction industry’s most fundamental question: How will we build an Internet of Things?
Many companies are starting to think about how we will connect all our devices to each other and what our future will look like.
While it is not yet clear what kind of network infrastructure we will need, one of the most pressing questions is what type of internet service we will want.
That is the subject of a new book by technology reporter John P. Rees, Building an Internet Of Things: The Story Of The Future.
Building an IoT network is a complicated task that requires collaboration and engineering expertise, which is why Rees says he has been working on building an IoT project for about a year.
The book, which he co-wrote with reporter Michael Kranish, is the first to describe how the world’s largest Internet service provider is building an infrastructure to support an IoT-powered network.
In this exclusive interview, Rees talks about building the infrastructure, the challenges of building an internet of things network and what he is learning from the Internet ofThings community.
Reese talks to TechCrunch about building an “Internet of things” network and the challenges that he faces in building a new network.
This story originally appeared on TechCrunch: http://techcrunch.com/2017/05/21/building-an-internet-of-things-is-not-easy-5-years-in-the-making/ What’s the history of building a modern infrastructure?
Reese says that the current internet of Things infrastructure has a lot of different challenges, including the lack of a solid understanding of what a network is, which could lead to bad data.
“There’s a lot going on, and you need to have the tools to make sure that it’s not going to make things worse,” he says.
“And you need the knowledge of what to do about it.
That’s one of my big problems in building this project.
I need to make this work.”
Reese started by talking to a team of engineers, who were interested in building the network because they are familiar with it.
“They’ve got a lot in common with me, because I’ve been a part of the internet of today,” he explains.
He also found that many companies already use cloud computing as part of their infrastructure, which makes the project easier to build.
But he still needs to know a lot more about the internet.
“I really need to get the technical side of it,” he admits.
“You need to understand the concepts of how all this stuff works.”
Rees first encountered the internet while working for The Guardian, which covered the rise of the social media app Twitter.
“The first thing I saw was this thing called Twitter, and it was a mess,” he recalls.
“It was a completely out-of a box approach to communication that was incredibly easy to implement, but it was really hard to build.”
In his early days at the Guardian, Reees also built the original website for his blog, a website that was “like a portal for the internet, but that didn’t do anything for us,” he adds.
He wanted to make something similar for an internet-connected home.
“When I started building the web and the home and all these other things, I didn’t want to have to build a lot out of the box,” he remembers.
“But now that I have the time, I’m thinking, ‘I really want to build this.'”
In a way, the internet-of as we know it today is very similar to the internet that existed in the early days of the web.
“Most of the things we are building are going to be built from the ground up,” Rees explains.
“All of these components will be in the internet,” he continues.
“We will have the internet as the backbone, so that you can connect your TV to your router and your computer to your network, and we will have all of these things, so there is a lot to learn and understand.”
Reys own personal experience with building an Internet infrastructure is that he was fortunate to work on projects like building the internet in India and building the first internet backbone in India.
Reys first saw an example of the first backbone being built on a large scale in a restaurant in Delhi, India.
“A lot of people didn’t think about the fact that you need a large-scale infrastructure to build an internet, and I was lucky enough to have that infrastructure,” he reveals.
“One of the challenges was that the infrastructure was not up and running,” Reys says.
But thanks to an engineering group, Reys was able to get that infrastructure up and operating.
And the network was up and working.
Rees says that while the infrastructure he built is an interesting concept, it has to be put together.
“People have said to me that it is easy, but I am not so sure,” he notes.
