Coordinated message delivery in partially connected local association networks for the 'Internet of Things'
- 管理学院－已发表论文 
The traditional internet commonly is wired with machine-to-machine persistent connections. Evolving towards mobile and wireless pervasive networks, the internet has to entertain dynamic, transient and changing interconnections. The vision of the Internet of Things (IOT) furthers technology development by creating an interactive environment where smart objects are connected and can sense and react to the environment. The resulting event flooding in such an IOT environment has aroused interest in research in network architecture and topologies where the events can be filtered to meet event-intensive application requirements. In this paper, we will introduce a Local Association Network (LAN) with a coordinated P2P message delivery mechanism. This LAN is tested and validated as suitable building block for the IOT.
