Internet of Things (IoT) and Bits-n-Bites: What's the Connection?

The arrival of Things connected to the Internet in recent years has given lifeto new applications in both the consumer and industrial market segments. We are surrounded by products that utilize connectivity and agrowing enthusiasm suggests imminent and impressive deployments: billions of new connected devices are expected by year 2020.  In the industrial world, wide spread wireless sensoring devices that collect data and measurements will move us into the next phase of process optimization. This will require the combination of the best of Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT), forming the IT/OT convergence.

When deploying multi-stage Thing topologies, two trends compete: IP protocols are enhanced and transformed into less end-to-end protocols (address translation, header compression, 'mesh under' routing and more) and, alternatively, existing IP protocols are reduced to their bare minimum such as to fit in reduced Things (reduced CPU frequency and number of transistors, dimensions and energy consumption).

The IETF invites you and your organization to demonstrate IoT concepts and implementations at the upcoming IETF meeting in Toronto, Canada. The demonstrations should exhibit recent developments of IP protocols for IoT networks (6lowpan adaptation layers, MANET and RPL routing protocols, 6tsch time-constrained communications, CoAP app-layer protocols) as well as demonstrations of the tendency of bringing the known IPv6 as close as possible to the Thing - minimum set of unmodified IPv6, Neighbor Discovery, DHCP, HTTP, IKEv2.
