Improving Infrastructure Reliability by Understanding IoT Dependencies

Within the field of computer networking, there are examples of solutions that have been implemented to understand infrastructure dependencies.  As an example, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phones and network switches can determine the precise point of connectivity using a protocol known as Link Layer Discovery Protocol. In the Internet of Things (IoT), such a nifty standardized mechanism to determine dependencies does not exist. Here we explore examples of where sensors with this embedded ability would be useful and would contribute to the overall better experience and greater reliability.
