Description

The Internet of Things (IoT) provides continuous connectivity for various physical objects (e.g., sensors, mobile phones, vehicles, RFID tags, other electronic embedded devices, etc.) as well as humans by allowing them to communicate and exchange data. IoT encompass a massive number of low-cost and low-power devices that must transmit a diverse set of messages observed from their environment in a reliable and available way to deliver a plethora of smart applications. Moreover, one of the critical missions of IoT is envisioned to enable real-time control and automation of dynamic processes in various fields (e.g., industrial process automation and manufacturing, energy distribution, intelligent transport systems, etc.). This mission requires communications with very high reliability and availability, as well as very low end-to-end latency at the millisecond level.
