However, several challenges still hinder its advances, particularly security and power problems. during this paper, a comparative study for IoT architectures, platforms and applications is given with a case study maybe the most IoT ideas and levels of abstraction. Then, a Strengths – Weaknesses – Opportunities – Threats (SWOT) analysis is given to assess the current and also the way forward for IoT.
