Title: Integrating the Internet of Things into 5G and Beyond Networks

When: Jan. 31, 2017, 2:00 PM – 5:30 PM

One of the challenges of 5G is how to integrate the Internet of Things (IoT) into the mobile network architecture, to offer services to the plethora of different IoT applications and to the massive number of machine-type devices that will populate the 5G scenario. The challenge is emphasized by the legacy architectures and network paradigms that have become a sort of de facto standard since some years, while new approaches are becoming more and more appealing. This tutorial will review the traditional network architectures used for wireless sensor networks, will discuss the role of new air interface specifically devised for IoT and will introduce some promising approaches that will be investigated in the next few years for 5G networks. The discussion on the evolution of IoT applications, including the role of mobile things, will be a transversal component of the tutorial.
