SDN-Based Service Delivery in Smart Environments

Conference paper
Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 616)


Internet of Things scenarios demand adaptability to hold the heterogeneity of systems and devices employed; gateway-based solutions are a common answer to the issues of smart environments. The development of software for gateways, using a middleware to handle the different devices demands, is possible in our working scenario, but the maintenance cost of such a solution is high because of software development constraints imposed by hardware and system limitations of the gateway. This paper depicts an SDN approach for smart environments resulted from a refactoring of a previous middleware proposal. Through an instantiation of the refactored middleware in a home network to deliver a health monitoring service the benefits are demonstrated; the benefits regard the digital representation of the physical realm, deployment and maintenance of services, and management of devices and networks.
