The work addresses a flexible and programmable architecture to satisfy the large diversity of use cases and vertical applications. It takes into account maintenance requirements of large IoT deployments, crossing the blurring telecom and IT domains.:
- Enable service providers to act as “platform operators”, supporting value creation through a wider community of developers empowered to develop key-in-hand solutions encompassing devices, communications, and computation.
- Hiding the inherent complexities that the management of new generation service lifecycle encompasses, while ensuring the highest level of trustworthiness to the final users/service developers through an appropriate development environment
- Enable improved efficiency in service support, also responding to the ambitions of lower energy systems.
- Include open-source technologies with the aim to develop the most appropriate software development strategies as well as the definition of methods and procedures for guaranteeing that software will a) provide and enable optimal energy performance, b) hide the complexities of the potentially distributed platforms, c) support connected devices requiring lower energy consumption in domains where growth is expected to be massive, (e.g. IoT, consumer electronic, medical devices, etc.)
The above topics listed in the scope represent the core focus of SNS-2022-STREAM-A-01-07, without precluding the potential inclusion of other related technologies still contributing to the listed Expected Outcomes.
