Question 3/20

​​IoT and SC&C architectures, protocols and QoS/QoE

(Continuation of part of Q3/20)

Motivation
As the Internet of Things (IoT) establishes its position as an underlying mechanism for various applications, special attention is being paid to how advanced information and communication technology (ICT) systems are designed based on IoT and related conceptual architectures including network requirements and protocols. Given the rich features of IoT, highly capable ICT systems meeting vertical industry demands can be realized by supplementary development based on IoT architectures. This is a promising way in terms of efficiency and time to market.

To support this approach, the IoT and SC&C architectures, their functionalities, interfaces, protocols, data models, intelligent management mechanisms, control mechanisms, connectivity technologies, APIs, and Quality of Experience/Service (QoE/QoS) have to be studied, also building on existing Recommendations, including ITU-T Y.4000/Y.2060.

Questions
This Question addresses architectures, including their functionalities, interfaces, protocols, data models, intelligent management mechanisms, control mechanisms, connectivity technologies, APIs, and Quality of Experience/Service (QoE/QoS) of IoT and Smart Sustainable Cities and Communities (SSC&C), which needed to construct architectural frameworks to interact with services and applications, as well as different networks and systems.
