Quality of Service for the Internet of Things in Smart Cities via Predictive Networks

Project description

High-quality IoT services in smart cities

By 2020, it is predicted that there will be 50 billion smart connected devices globally. Internet adoption has grown so rapidly that the Internet of Things (IoT) space has exploded. The question now is whether smart cities, which make use of IoT, can deliver high-quality services. The EU-funded QoSIoTSmartCities project will develop algorithms to predict IoT traffic on the internet and assess the quality of services offered in terms of end-to-end latency, reliability and energy efficiency. The findings will contribute to the planning and development of forecasting methods.


The goal of this project is to enable the delivery of Quality of Service (QoS) for the Internet of Things (IoT) in smart cities. 50 billion devices are expected to be connected to the Internet by 2020. In order to achieve high end-to-end QoS for IoT in smart cities, the problems of scalability, latency, reliability, energy efficiency and mobility must be solved jointly. The specific objectives of this project are (1) to develop forecasting algorithms in order to predict IoT traffic on the Internet, (2) to develop predictive QoS optimization algorithms targeted at IoT, and (3) to build a scalable network simulation of IoT devices in a representative smart city model in order to estimate the end-to-end latency, reliability, energy-efficiency for a section of a city-wide network that includes mobile IoT devices. The results of the project are expected to impact the development of IoT standards in regard to the incorporation of forecasting-based methods to wireless network planning and development. The long-term impact of the project beyond IoT is expected to be the incorporation of forecasting-based methods into all layers of the protocol stack for wireless networks.
