BETaaS Platform – A Things as a Service Environment for Future M2M Marketplaces
Building the Environment for Things as a Service (BETaaS) is a novel platform for the deployment and execution of content-centric M2M applications, which relies on a local cloud of gateways. BETaaS platform provides a uniform interface and services to map content with things in a context-aware manner. Deployment of services for the execution of applications is dynamic and takes into account the computational resources of the low-end physical devices used. To this aim, BETaaS platform is based on a suitable defined IoT model, allowing the integration of the BETaaS components within the future Internet environment. In this paper we present the BETaaS concept, the high level platform architecture and application scenarios that extend the state-of-the-art in M2M communications and open the horizon for future M2M marketplaces.
