Recently there has been quite a number of independent research activities that investigate the potentialities of integrating social networking concepts into Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. The resulting paradigm, named Social Internet of Things (SIoT), has the potential to support novel applications and networking services for the IoT in more effective(More)
—The actual development of the Internet of Things (IoT) needs major issues related to things' service discovery and composition to be addressed. This paper proposes a possible approach to solve such issues. We introduce a novel paradigm of " social network of intelligent objects " , namely the Social Internet of Things (SIoT), based on the notion of social(More)
A wide variety of applications for road safety and traffic efficiency are intended to answer the urgent call for smarter, greener, and safer mobility. Although IEEE 802.11p is considered as the de facto standard for on-the-road communications, stakeholders have recently started to investigate the usability of Long Term Evolution (LTE) to support vehicular(More)
In the last few years, standardization activities within the IEEE 802.16 Working Group have resulted in the publication of specifications for an air interface of Fixed broadband wireless access systems. WiMAX is the commercial name of products compliant with the approved IEEE 802.16 standard. Although the standard suggests the main principles in designing a(More)
The Named Data Networking (NDN) project is emerging as one of the most promising information-centric future Internet architectures. Besides NDN recognized potential as a content retrieval solution in wired and wireless domains, its innovative concepts, such as named content, name-based routing and in-network caching, particularly suit the requirements of(More)
—This paper addresses the design of an adaptive resource allocation policy for the efficient delivery of multicast services in Long Term Evolution (LTE) systems. The proposed approach overcomes the intrinsic inefficiencies of Conventional Multicast Scheme (CMS) related to the different channel quality experienced by the involved users. The basic idea is to(More)
—The integration of social networking concepts into the Internet of Things (IoT) has led to the so called Social Internet of Things (SIoT) paradigm, according to which the objects are capable of establishing social relationships in an autonomous way with respect to their owners. The benefits are those of improving scalability in information/service(More)
Information about human social activities and relationships are exploited by an ever increasing number of proposed applications and protocols in several scenarios, given the consequent increase in the system performance. Examples are data transmission over delay tolerant networks, content recommendation in search engines, and advertisement of products and(More)
