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 the year of 2020, therefore, there is a need for a super network to handle and control the potentially huge amounts of data gathered and delivered to these devices. 5G technology is a new complete wireless technology which has great potential to aid the IoT phenomenon as the main enabling technology. It has exposed many significant features such as higher bandwidth, high integrity, low latency, higher spectral efficiency, and higher network capacity than any other generation. In this study, an overview is presented for the 5G as the best candidate to be the underlying technology required to implement IoT applications.


Network Experience Scheduling and Routing Approach for Big Data Transmission in the Internet of Things
Al-Turman, Fadi; Mostarda, Leonardo; Ever, Enver; Darwish, Ahmed; Khalil, Naziha Shekh (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019-01-01)
The recent developments in the Internet of Things related technologies have caused a shift towards smart applications such as smart cities, smart homes, smart education systems, e-health, and online applications to run businesses. These, in turn, have introduced significant additional loads to the existing network infrastructures. In addition, these applications use big data and require relatively short response times. In this paper, we are introducing a new scheduling and routing approach to enhance the en...
Protedge: A few-shot ensemble learning approach to software-defined networking-assisted edge security
Demirpolat, Ahmed; Sarica, Alper Kaan; Angın, Pelin (2020-10-01)
The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm has had a significant impact on our lives through many use cases including smart farming, smart homes, and smart healthcare among others. Due to the capacity-constrained nature of many IoT devices, edge computing has become a significant aid for IoT, replacing cloud computing to support the extremely low latency requirements. With the number of smart devices growing exponentially, the large attack surface created by these devices is concerning. Software-defi...
ARTEMIS: An intrusion detection system for mqtt attacks in internet of things
Ciklabakkal, Ege; Dönmez, Ataberk; Erdemir, Mert; Suren, Emre; YILMAZ, MUSTAFA TUĞRUL; Angın, Pelin (2019-10-01)
The Internet of Things (IoT) is now being used increasingly in transportation, healthcare, agriculture, smart home and city systems. IoT devices, the number of which is expected to reach 25 billion all over the world by 2021, are required to be deployed very fast, taking into account commercial pressures. This results in a very important layer, i.e. security, being either completely neglected or having significant shortcomings. Since IoT has a heterogeneous structure, there is a need for intrusion detection...
Comparative Study on Energy Efficiency of WSNs and WMSNs for Surveillance Applications
Kizilkaya, Burak; Ever, Enver; Yazıcı, Adnan (2019-01-01)
The infrastructure required to deliver various "Internet of Things" (IoT) services is expected to be widely available in the very near future for application areas such as Smart Cities, Smart Homes, Intelligent Transportation and Smart Monitoring in the coming decades. In fact, it is expected that the number of devices connected to the Internet will exceed 50 billion by 2020. It is possible to use these infrastructures for environmental monitoring systems, especially for the early detection and prevention o...
Performability Analysis Methods for Clustered WSNs as Enabling Technology for IoT
Ever, Enver (2019-01-01)
The Internet of Things (IoT) where sensors are used to couple the physical infrastructure with information and communication technologies is the main concept enabling applications such as smart homes, smart cities and intelligent transportation. The distributed sensor networks are used for interconnecting devices to transmit measured information, and control instructions. Therefore, energy efficiency and performability of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are critical for IoT applications. It is possible to c...
