Aims and objectives

IoT6 stands for “Universal Integration of the Internet of Things through an IPv6-based Service Oriented Architecture enabling heterogeneous components interoperability”. IoT6 is a 3 years FP7 European research project coordinated by Mandat International from October 2011 until September 2014.

Aims and objectives

  1. Research the potential of IPv6 and related standards to support the future Internet of Things and to overcome its current fragmentation.
  2. Develop a highly scalable IPv6-based Service-Oriented Architecture to achieve interoperability, mobility, cloud computing integration and intelligence distribution among heterogeneous smart things components, applications and services.
  3. Explore innovative forms of interactions with:

     a) Multi-protocol integration & interoperability with heterogeneous devices.

     b) Mobile & cellular networks.

     c) Cloud computing services (SaaS).

     d) RFID tags and related systems, such as EPCIS.

     e) Information and intelligence distribution.

Main outcomes

  1. Recommendations on IPv6 features exploitation for the Internet of Things
  2. An open and well-defined IPv6-based Service Oriented Architecture enabling interoperability, mobility, cloud computing and intelligence distribution among heterogeneous smart things components, applications and services,- including with business processes management tools.
  3. Test & validation.
