Internet of Things (IoT) and its services are becoming part of our everyday life, ways of working, and business. The long-standing visions of the personal digital assistant, smart home, smart car and the smart environment are now becoming reality with the help of mobile computing and IoT. In this talk, I will first give a summary of the Finnish IoT Research Program (2012-2016) that investigated crucial building blocks and models for the next generation of Internet services supported by a plethora of connected things and the forthcoming 5G technologies. After the IoT program summary, I will give an overview of the recent Finnish IoT and 5G developments and discuss roadmaps toward IoT deployment with focus on IoT security and privacy.
