A SIP/IMS Platform for Internet of Things in WLAN-3GPP Integration Networks

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 298)


With the growth of internet access technologies, sensors/machines performing environment sensing and control can connect to Internet anytime and anywhere. However, there is no framework for users to integrate the sensors/machines and the server. The IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) based on Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and all-IP architecture has been proposed as a common platform for Next Generation Network (NGN). This paper proposes a SIP/IMS platform for Internet of Things (IoT) in WLAN-3GPP integrated networks. This IMS platform includes Instant Message and Presence Service (IMPS) application servers (ASs). The Call Session Control Functions (CSCFs) perform the session setup and termination for a long-term communications. The IMPS ASs handles message exchange for short-term communications. Finally, this paper analyzes the efficiency of difference query/report methods and gives a conclusion.
