In this paper, we provide an initial evaluation of a home smart lighting system - demonstrating the advantages of ICN paradigm through the primitive features of NDN architecture. A prototype of NDN based smart home lighting was developed and benchmarked against the IP cloud based approach.
The central argument of this paper is that, as it is, the current host-centric Internet will exhibit serious limitations to handle the large number of IoT devices to be produced in the near future (possibly 40 billion of them by 2021). The problem is that a large number of them will be used in data-centric applications demanding data and device… (More)
—In this paper, we present a NDN based smart home lighting solution where lights are automatically controlled in near real time based on occupancy and daylight. We implemented a reliable solution using NDN architecture exploiting the primitive NDN features in push based data dissemination, multicast forwarding through name prefixes and Interest filtering in… (More)
