ABSTRACT:
IN THIS WORK WE DISCUSS PROXY ARCHITECTURES WHICH INTERCONNECT IOT DOMAINS RUNNING COAP WITH THE REST OF INTERNET INCLUDING MICRO DATA CENTERS AND OTHER DOMAINS BUILDING SCALABLE HIERARCHICAL ARCHITECTURES. WE ASSUME THAT COAP DOMAIN IS TERMINATED BY AN IOT PROXY WITH CACHE, AND DESCRIBE AND EVALUATE THREE DESIGN OPTIONS FOR COMMUNICATION ARCHITECTURE. THE FIRST OPTION IS THE DEFAULT SCENARIO WITH UNICAST COMMUNICATION USING POST/GET MESSAGES, WITH PROXY OPERATING IN FORWARD OR REVERSE MODE, AND REACTIVE OR
PROACTIVE DATA COLLECTION. THE SECOND OPTION IS DATA COLLECTION VIA MULTICAST GET MESSAGES FROM THE PROXY, INCLUDING THE IMPACT OF THE LEISURE PERIOD WHICH ALLOWS DEVICES TO REPLY AFTER A ARBITRARY (RANDOM) DELAY UPON RECEIVING A MULTICAST GET REQUEST. THE FINAL OPTION IS THE USE OF 'OBSERVE' FEATURE WHERE CLIENTS SUBSCRIBE TO SERVER NOTIFICATIONS THAT INFORM THEM OF CHANGED DATA VALUES. TO MAINTAIN THE FRESHNESS OF CACHED RECORDS UNDER RANDOM ARRIVALS OF OBSERVED DATA, WE HAVE IMPLEMENTED THE EVALUATION OF MAX-AGE PARAMETER AT THE PROXY. WE HAVE ALSO IMPLEMENTED CONGESTION CONTROL AT IOT NODES WHICH INTERACTS WITH PROXY'S FRESHNESS ESTIMATION AND ALLOWS THE PROXY TO PERFORM ITS OWN CONGESTION CONTROL. WE PRESENT PERFORMANCE DATA OF THESE OPTIONS, INCLUDING THE PROBABILITY OF SUCCESSFUL DATA TRANSMISSION, ROUND TRIP
DELAY AND ENERGY CONSUMPTION.

22nd International Symposium on Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications


on 24-11-2019

... The 22nd International Symposium on Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications (WPMC 2019), will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, on November 24-27, 2019. The theme of this year's event is "DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES AND BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION", hosted by Instituto de Telecomunicações (IT) / Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (ISCTE-IUL).

The WPMC symposia series were inaugurated in 1998, as a global platform to enable collaboration in the field of wireless information. Held in Asia, Europe and America, WPMC has established itself as a unique global conference dedicated to wireless multimedia convergence, which over the last half-decade has been jointly held with the Global Wireless Summit (GWS) - the world's largest annual international conference on wireless techno-business modelling. To respond to the trend of rapid digital transformation its acceleration of business activities, processes, competencies, and models, the 22nd WPMC has merged with GWS and its related topics in a common platform for academia, industries and standardization bodies to present and discuss the various opportunities and open challenges to fully leverage the changes and promises of digital technologies and their impact in a strategic and prioritized way.

A key emphasis of this year's conferences is the borderless smart society - bridging across industries, public and private companies, universities, research labs, and other knowledge societies in exploration of the newest digital technologies and pursuing innovative ways of living, conducting business, travelling, and so forth, towards sustainable solutions for the future.

IT / ISCTE-IUL is actively involved in fundamental and applied research in telecommunications and its supporting sciences, including wireless communications, optical communications, networks and multimedia, at national/international levels. IT also fosters higher education and training, by hosting and tutoring graduate/postgraduate students.

We look forward to receiving your original, previously unpublished contributions and welcoming you to Lisbon and WPMC 2019. More Information..
