With the explosion of the number and variety of connected objects, it is necessary to define a system of recommendation of IoT services to the users so that they better use the connected objects that are at their disposal. The purpose of this recommendation system is to provide the user with customized IoT services and to help him choose suitable connected objects for the composition of these services. In this context, it is fundamental to be able to characterize IoT services to identify classes of services. We have previously proposed an algorithm based on the physical interfaces of the connected objects that allows this characterization. In this article, we evaluate its performance. To do this, we developed a data generation tool for IoT services, which was then used to evaluate the characterization algorithm. The analysis of the results allows us to conclude that our algorithm gives a good characterization of the IoT services, but sometimes additional information based on the context will be necessary in order to improve its performance.

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

  • Francini A.
  • Miller R.
  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
