Survey of Migration, Integration and Interconnection Techniques of Data Centric Networks to InternetTowards Internet of Things (IoT)


Background/Objectives: Internet of Things aims at creating web of things connecting anything, anytime and anywhere also embracing Cyber-physical systems. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The underlying data source being sensors or interconnection of them, predominantly communicating wirelessly (WSN), our paper attempts to survey and analyze all the interconnection models that provide information to the users exploiting or extracting information at their own capacities. We have grounded our survey based on the role of gateway and nodes, hops, connection points, robustness, suitability, resilience, scalability, topology and their adaptability towards IoT. Findings: As of now surveys have been made in silos like various interconnection techniques or migration techniques for Wireless Sensor Networks, to the best of our knowledge not much have been proposed about the feasible interconnection model towards Internet of Things. Our paper attempts to fill this gap and we have also studied the possible adaptation and integration of techniques like Software Defined Networks and virtualization towards Internet of Things. Software defined networks can provide us the much needed control for the Internet of Things and virtualization can provide us with re-usability. We have also highlighted how we can visualize a sensor node as a service or as a database. As of now very less work has been carried out about integration of these towards Web of Things. Applications/Improvements: We are also developing an architecture incorporating these layers namely the SDN and the virtualization and we have planned to test it using real time deployment in future.
