App-daptive IoT networks
Today, we observe that IoT systems are evolving upon communication technologies with flexible, reconfigurable lower layers in combination with extreme flexibility at the higher layers. Both layers require proper configuration and alignment in order to provide the intended application behaviour while meeting the specific QoS requirements (reliability, latency, determinism, availability, etc.). The main challenge is to automatically translate IoT application dynamics into appropriate network reconfigurations to cope with a very heterogeneous and demanding application context. In this talk, I propose some smart solutions that allow automatic reconfiguration of wireless IoT networks when changes at the higher layer applications occur.
