We have witnessed the Fixed Internet emerging with virtually every computer being connected today; we are currently witnessing the emergence of the Mobile Internet with the exponential explosion of smart phones, tablets and net-books. However, both will be dwarfed by the anticipated emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), in which everyday objects are(More)
—Supported by IEEE 802.15.4 standardization activities , embedded networks have been gaining in popularity in recent years. The focus of this paper is to quantify the behavior of key networking metrics of IEEE 802.15.4 beacon-enabled nodes under typical operating conditions, with the inclusion of packet retransmissions. We correct and extend previous(More)
This document presents a new work called 6TSCH that is starting at the IETF to enable a large IPv6 multi-link subnet with industrial-grade performances of jitter, latency and reliability. The subnet is composed of a high speed powered backbone and a number of IEEE802.15.4e TSCH wireless mesh networks attached and synchronized by specialized Backbone(More)
—The emerging IEEE802.15.4e standard and IETF RPL routing protocol provide key functionalities useful for a really viable Internet of Things. Indeed, they are core to the organization of multi-hop Low-power and Lossy Networks. Nevertheless, the design of effective scheduling schemes in such systems is one of the major problems, which requires research(More)
Software-defined deployments are growing into data center and enterprise network infrastructures. The typical promises of software-defined networks (SDN) are improved time for market, decreased risk and operational costs for services, flexibility and unified management. However, little is known and shared about how to actually manage an SDN network,(More)
The aim of this work is to propose an innovative architecture for fire detection, using a wireless sensor network. This scheme is based on the statistical modeling of the Angstrom index. So far, such an index has been applied in outdoor environments. The results obtained by our analysis have extended its validity also to indoor scenarios. A key strength of(More)
