Internet of Things (IoT) is a rapidly developing network of communication that enables data sharing and real-time analytics among physical objects. It has numerous applications in military operations, smart cities, environmental monitoring, purchasing, and livestock management. To provide a comprehensive overview of the topic, this study conducts a thorough review of the relevant literature and research papers. A detailed analysis of IoT applications in various fields, including smart cities, environmental monitoring, purchasing, livestock management, and military operations, is presented. The paper also examines the impact of IoT technologies on each sector, concluding that IoT integration enhances resource utilization and service delivery in the context of smart cities. IoT-driven data analysis benefits environmental monitoring by facilitating pollution control and weather forecasting. Through the use of IoT, the supply chain management and efficiency of the procurement sector have improved. IoT enables enhanced productivity and real-time animal health monitoring in the live-stock sector. Remote automation and surveillance are also made possible by the use of IoT in military applications. The results highlight how IoT technologies can optimize operations, sustainability, and resource management across a wide range of domains. To ensure the best possible use of IoT in each sector, ongoing research and development are needed to address challenges related to data security and interoperability.
