IoT-enabling Technologies: IEEE 802.15.4, WLLN, ZigBee, WAVE, Next Gen WiFi

The Internet is rapidly turning into a hyper-connected network of tens of billions of computers, smart phones, homes, buildings, vehicles, products, appliances, devices, machinery, and sensors. The Fifth Generation of Wireless (5G) is being engineered for such massive interconnectivity, but it will be aided by technologies such as LR-WPAN, WLLN, Zigbee, WAVE, and Next Gen WiFi.

The Internet of Things: Smart Devices, M2M, WSNs, and IoT

The Internet of Things is coming and indeed in some ways is already here. It encompasses the networking and interaction of smart devices to achieve functionality that is currently labor-intensive, inconvenient, or just not feasible. It has begun with small-scale smart devices, and is progressing through larger, more complex systems such as autonomous vehicles. At some point in the future, the scope and degree of the automation may result in changes in major areas of society such as living and transportation, much as the automobile and the Internet have done. However, a major barrier to all of these applications is security, because anyone who can seize control of networked devices can create havoc and even cause personal injury or death.

Distributed Computing for IoT: Data Management in a Fog Computing Environment

Whereas the evolution of ICT has taken us from mainframes to PCs and back to the Cloud (e.g. from centralized to distributed to centralized computing), clearly distributed computing will have an increasingly important role in the digital economy. Edge Computing includes a number of technologies including Mobile Edge Computing, Fog Computing, and Cloudlets — to mention a few. In this article, we take a quick look at some of the Fog Computing and Data Management issues and challenges.

“When It Comes to Web 2.0 and Next Gen Communications, I’m with Tim … Pretty Much.”

Examples of many of the technologies are from the wireless realm, or, more accurately where the wireless realm and the terrestrial meet: Internet Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC) and Next Gen Networks (NGN) and the technological piece-parts from which these things are built, including mobile routers and mesh networks, 3G, 4G and beyond, QoS-assured Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) networks running over high capacity optical systems and all of the elements that make all of those things work.

MPLS and the Evolving Telecom Landscape

This led to the idea of doing with IP (a layer 3 technology) some of the same things as ATM, and specifically, the idea of using label switching to get some of ATM’s benefits.  The technology developed to do this was called Multiprotocol Label Switching, or MPLS.  MPLS has proved to be very capable and flexible, and able to do natively many of the things that ATM was designed to do.
