Question 3/20

Architectures, management, protocols and Quality of Service

(Continuation of part of Q3/20)

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 protocol. 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 architectures, their functionalities, data models, management mechanisms, protocols, and Quality of Service (QoS) have to be studied, also building on existing Recommendations, including ITU-T Y.2060/ITU-T Y.4000.

This Question addresses IoT functional architectures, protocols, management mechanisms, and QoS (including performance) of IoT and Smart Sustainable Cities and Communities (SC&C), which needed to construct architectural frameworks for the following reasons: Study items to be considered include, but are not limited to: Tasks
