The Internet

-
Things: Shaping the new Internet Space

Nik Bessis

and
Navonil Mustafee


The new version of the Internet Protocol
-

IPv6
-

has
astronomically increased

the IP address space
from around
4.3
billion IPv4

addresses

to roughly 340 trillion trillion trill
ion

new
IPv6
identifiers
.
This
humongous pool of addresses ensure

the continued expansion of the Internet for many decades to
come

and

it realises

the vision of
everyday objects that are uniquely identifiable and are connected
to the Internet


this is co
mmonly known as the
“Internet
-
of
-
Things”

(Io
T)
.

Io
T extends the
human
-
centric view
of the I
nternet market space wherein it was thought that
the “
world of humans
represented a market space that would reach saturation sometime soon

(
Internet Society, 2012
)
;
IoT

broadens the
device
-
centric view

that predominantly considered computing and electronic
devices (e.g., PCs, mobile phones, home electronics, smart cars) as the defining elements of the
Internet space.
The

IoT paradigm postulates that any
physical
obj
ect that is identified with a unique
identifier
(e.g., books tagged with RFID tags, QR codes or bar codes)
will be considered as a smart
object
that is
able to be interconnected
, and billions and trillions of such smart objects
will shape the
new Internet
s
pace.
The smart objects generate data that is accessibl
e through the Internet and i
n
realisation of this,
IoT deals with integrating and enabling several technologies and communication
protocols including wired and wireless communications, networking
, tra
cking technologies,
localis
ation, sensors and next generation Internet.

However, the promising area of
IoT

also
pose
s
several challenges, for e.g.,
modelling

and implementation issues such as architectures,
interoperability, middleware, and so on.


This
C
CPE
special issue presents the opportunity to showcase recent research
in IoT and it solicits
high quality papers in
advances of theoretical, experimental and practical nature.
The main topic
areas include, but are not limited to:



Internet of Things, Archi
tecture, Components, RFID, Sensors and Actuator Technologies
.



The Geography of Things
,
L
ocation and tracking of objects
.



Inter
-
networking and Radio Access Protocols, Technologies, Near Field Communications
.



Inter
-
operability and Inter
-
cooperative Protocols
, Standards and Technologies
.



Social Networks for Things, Social Graphs of Things, Link Analysis, Web of Things, Topic

Maps.



Ad
-
Hoc Networks, RF Modelling, Digital Object and Context Representation and Preservation
.



Enabling Computational Technologies
(Clusters, Grids, P2P, Cloud, etc)
.



Security, Privacy, Identity, Trust and Reputation Management, Collective Behaviour and Ethical
Issues
.



Performance, Scalability, Robustness, Reliability Verification, Validation, Benchmarking
.



Concepts and/or Frameworks
of Applicable Future Technologies, Implications and Trends.



Standards and Reference Models.



Review of Literature.



Novel applications of IoT.
