 About this Project

Internet-of-Things (IoT) or Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication is fast becoming a significant characteristic of a wide spectrum of networked applications, such as tele-health, shipping and logistics, utility and environmental monitoring, point-of-sale terminals, industrial automation, and asset tracking. With ‘smart’ sensing devices becoming ubiquitous, the need to support large-scale IoT communication will be a reality in the near future. In anticipation of this need the IoT NeTS project focusses on developing innovative, efficient and scalable solutions to support large-scale IoT communication.

This project is funded by the US National Science Foundation Networking Technology and Systems (NeTS) program  which supports transformative research on fundamental scientific and technological advances in networking as well as systems research leading to the development of future-generation, high-performance networks and future Internet architectures. The NeTS IoT project is a collaborative work between researchers in the University of California, Riverside, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the University of Iowa.

Project Goals

Internet-of-Things (IoT) or Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication is fast becoming a significant characteristic of a wide spectrum of networked applications. With ‘smart’ sensing devices becoming ubiquitous, the need to support large-scale IoT communication will be a reality in the near future and IoT traffic will also need to be supported over cellular networks. …More
