Networking the IoT with RIOT
Language: English or German according to preference
This talk introduces the networking architecture that turns RIOT into a powerful IoT system, and enables low-power wireless deployment. RIOT networking offers (i) a modular architecture with generic interfaces for plugging in drivers, protocols, or entire stacks, (ii) support for multiple heterogeneous interfaces and stacks that can concurrently operate, and (iii) GNRC, its cleanly layered, recursively composed default network stack. Focussing on deployability, we discuss and analyse several IoT networking approaches including 6Low and Information Centric Networking. Selected security aspects will also be touched.
Thomas C. Schmidt is professor of Computer Networks and Internet Technologies at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW), where he heads the Internet Technologies research group (iNET). Prior to moving to Hamburg, he was director of a computer centre in Berlin. He studied mathematics, physics and German literature at Freie Universität Berlin and University of Maryland, and received his Ph.D. from FU Berlin in 1993. Since then he has continuously conducted numerous national and international research projects. He was the principal investigator in a number of EU, nationally funded and industrial projects as well as visiting professor at the University of Reading, U.K.. His continued interests lie in the development, measurement, and analysis of large-scale distributed systems like the Internet or its offsprings. He serves as co-editor and technical expert in many occasions and is actively involved in the work of IETF and IRTF, where he co-chaired the SAM RG. Thomas is a co-founder and coordinator of the open source community developing the RIOT operating system.
