IoT Industrial Deployment

Thursday, 24 March, 13:30 - 14:30
Expo Theater II, Exhibit Hall B

Session organized by the IEEE Internet of Things and IEEE Big Data Initiatives
 

Session Description

When embedding networking capabilities in “things”, there are architectural decisions to be made that guarantees the “Internet of Things” is scalable, inclusive of several communication media, secure, future proof and viable for businesses and end-users. IoT will pose two challenges to the network infrastructure: a) to cope with increasing volumes of traffics due to the deployment of billions of sensors; and b) the complexity to deal with billions of sources and sinks of traffic with variable bandwidth consumption and different requirements in delivery of messages. In these days there is a trend to decouple the control planes from network elements and creating a centralized control and management infrastructure. This is happening for IP networks, i.e., SDN, and it is a possibility also for optical network. Potentially IoT systems can benefit from this increased programmability and integration of network control and management.

This panel discusses the “Internet of Things” (IoT) and the challenges that it presents to businesses and end-users assuming adoption of the TCP/IP model.  Panelists will discuss the impact on applications, security, big data, IPv6 and optical networking.
