The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the dominating paradigms of the new era with its abilities to provide ubiquitous intelligence and pervasive interconnections to diverse physical objects. With the advancements, such as new generation 5G communication and cloud/edge computing-based paradigms, the degree of domination is expected to further increase. Therefore, improvements for quality of service have become a critical issue. Traditional packets scheduling algorithms cannot meet the requirements of the large-scale IoT systems. In this paper, a novel scheduling approach is proposed for different data classes (types) to be exchanged between heterogeneous nodes of a generic IoT infrastructure. The possible ways of organizing these classes depending on different metrics, such as time latency, reliability, and data loss, are investigated. The proposed approach has the advantage of being able to tune the priorities and network characteristics to reach a specifically desired performance state. Since each type of packets is considered separately, it is possible to prioritize them, by tuning the related parameters, which changes the priorities between packets. The numerical results presented show that the new approach performs better than the existing typical scheduling approaches. The developed approach can be used in the various IoT applications with the support of 5G communication and edge computing, such as agriculture, wearables, connected cars, smart retail, and smart cities.


Quantifying Uncertainty in Internet of Medical Things and Big-Data Services Using Intelligence and Deep Learning
Al-Turjman, Fadi; Zahmatkesh, Hadi; Mostarda, Leonardo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019-01-01)
In the cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) environments, quantifying uncertainty is an important element input to keep the acceptable level of reliability in various configurations. In this paper, we aim to address the pricing model of delivering data over the cloud while taking into consideration the dynamic uncertainty factors such as network topology, transmission/reception energy, nodal charge and power, and computation capacity. These uncertainty factors are mapped to different nodes with varying capa...

Recently, the Internet of Things (IoT) has emerged as a significant advancement for Internet and mobile networks with various public safety network applications. An important use of IoT-based solutions is its application in post-disaster management, where the traditional telecommunication systems may be either completely or partially damaged. Since enabling technologies have restricted authentication privileges for mobile users, in this paper, a strategy of mobile-sink is introduced for the extension of use...
Energy efficient wireless unicast routing alternatives for machine-to-machine networks
Tekbiyik, Neyre; Uysal, Elif (Elsevier BV, 2011-09-01)
Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications is a new and rapidly developing technology for large-scale networking of devices without dependence on human interaction. Energy efficiency is one of the important design objectives for machine-to-machine network architectures that often contain multihop wireless subnetworks. Constructing energy-efficient routes for sending data through such networks is important not only for the longevity of the nodes which typically depend on battery energy, but also for achieving a...

Poncha, Lemayian Joel; Abdelhamid, Sherin; Alturjman, Sinem; Ever, Enver; Al-Turjman, Fadi (2018-05-24)
The future of services is expected to heavily rely on "Internet of Things" (IoT) and the ability to create smart spaces such as, smart cities, smart houses, smart transportation, and smart outdoor monitoring (SOM) in the coming few decades. Such smart spaces will require the deployment of significantly large numbers of devices connected to the internet such as sensors, actuators, and wearable computing. It is expected that the number of the connected devices to the internet will exceed 50 billion devices by...

Due to the technological developments, Internet of things (IoT) has become a real phenomenon. Accordingly, many IoT-based smart concepts appeared in our daily lives such as smart home, smart healthcare and smart city. There are several factors accelerating or hindering the adoption of such new services and concepts. So, the acceptance of IoT-based smart services is critical and should be analyzed carefully. In this study, we aimed to prepare a proper starting point for future studies on end user acceptance ...
