IP-1: A mobile key management scheme for mobile wireless sensor networks

  • Samira Akhbarifar, Science & Research University, Iran (Islamic Republic of)
Mobile Wireless Sensor Network (MWSN) is a group of movable sensor nodes employed in an objective area. Secure communication in MWSNs involve with the availability and effective key management scheme. Due to the motions of sensor nodes and unfamiliar movable pattern, mobile key management is a principal issue in such networks. In this Paper, we offer a novel key management scheme, which utilizes key pre-distribution and post-deployment key constitution Mechanisms for MWSNs. The suggested achievement guarantees that the two communicating nodes share at least one common Key. It also supplies efficient ways for key construction and revocation as well as the addition or deletion of mobile sensor nodes. Versus other key management schemes which are designed for MWSNs, our simulation and analysis results indicate the efficiency of the proposed approach in terms of confidentiality, resilience, memory consumption, energy usage and overhead.

Due to the sharply increased demand for wireless broadband data, unlicensed spectrum is considered by cellular operators as a possible complement to LTE systems operating in licensed spectrum. However unlicensed spectrum can never match the qualities of the licensed regime, due to the need to coexist with devices of other networks/RATs as well as ad-hoc deployments. As a result, the LTE-U Forum has recently developed LTE-U (LTE on unlicensed spectrum) and 3GPP has been studying Licensed-Assisted Access (LAA) as technologies allowing LTE to be utilized on unlicensed spectrum paired with licensed spectrum, which provides many of the existing control and radio resource management (RRM) functionalities of existing cellular networks.
This work addresses the design of procedures to achieve efficient operation for LTE on unlicensed spectrum and support coexistence of LTE-U/LAA cells of the same or different operators as well as other radio access technologies (e.g. WiFi). While the fundamental design for LAA should be applicable to both intra- and inter-system coexistence, there may be differences in requirements and performance between LAA-WiFi and LAA-LAA coexistence due to fundamental differences in the underlying technologies.
For small cell deployments, the load and signal energy on each layer can vary with each transmission time interval (TTI). The extent of this time variation of signal energy observed at the UE receiver may also highly variable on unlicensed carriers where multiple nodes are opportunistically contending for the channel. RRM measurement is one of the key LTE functionalities for helping the network to support load shifting across frequency layers and interference measurement on other RATs to facilitate better carrier selection. However, the assumption of the availability of signals for these measurements needs to be revisited considering LBT and other requirements on the unlicensed carrier. As a result, different RRM measurement enhancements to enable adaption based on long-term and short-term RRM measurement on unlicensed spectrum are proposed.
Finally, this work presents and evaluates a comprehensive framework for selecting appropriate parameters for a coexistence or time/frequency resource management mechanism as a function of multiple factors, including traffic characteristics, deployment densities, and coexistence mechanisms.

IP-5: IPv6 and IoT Industrial Deployment

  • Sebastien Ziegler, Mandat International, Switzerland
  • Latif Ladid, UL; IPv6 Forum - IOT subC, Luxembourg
The IPv6 Deployment worldwide is becoming a reality now with some countries achieving more than 10 % user penetration with Belgium (37%), Germany (18% and the US (16%) at the top ranking ( ) and reaching double digits v6 coverage on Google IPv6 stats. Many Autonomous Networks (ASN) reach more than 50% with v6 preferred or v6 capable penetration: ( ). Over 200 Million users are accessing Internet over IPv6 and probably not even knowing it. The US remains by far the biggest adopter of IPv6 with some 45 Million users followed by Germany and Japan with over 10 M users. Worldwide IPv6 deployment has passed the 5 % Google usage bar doubling every 6 months ( ). If this trend continues, we should achieve 50% by 2017 which would be the inflection point when the full roll-out of IPv6 becomes a strategic plumbing decision of the networks, a topic that is avoided so far due to many strategic and resources issues (lack of top management decision-making, lack of v6 skilled engineers and v6 deployment best practices, very limited ISP v6 access deployment, ..). The deployment of Carrier-grade NAT is in full swing making networking and user experience more brittle. The security and cybersecurity issues are like always brushed over at this stage due mainly to lack of IPv6 security skills. New topics are more on the lime light such as Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, SDN, NFV, 5G. However, these fields are taking IP networking for granted designing them on IPv4/NAT building non-scalable and non-end to end solutions. The ECIAO project is driving new initiatives to garner support and create awareness on the impact of IPv6 on topics such as Cloud Computing, IOT, SDN-NFV and 5G.
The introduction of IPv6 provide enhanced features that were not tightly designed or scalable in IPv4 like IP mobility, ad hoc services; etc catering for the extreme scenario where IP becomes a commodity service enabling lowest cost networking deployment of large scale sensor networks, RFID, IP in the car, to any imaginable scenario where networking adds value to commodity.

IP-6: Phase Balancing of Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles with Wireless Communication in Smart Grid

  • Shanthi Vellingiri, ABB*, India
  • Mallikarjun Kande, ABB, India
With an expected increase in adoption of electric vehicles and widespread deployment of smart grids, a variety of opportunities are opening up for the use of electric vehicles as a new renewable resource - storing excess power in light load situation or supporting grid during peak load. This can be made practical if a large number of such vehicles are concentrated in one place, like the parking lot of a large organization. One predicted problem in such a scenario is the phase imbalance caused by arbitrary spread of vehicles over the three phases, which can lead to distribution circuit trips. This paper proposes a phase balancing mechanism, implemented with the help of wireless communication between electric vehicles and a master controller implementing the phase balancing, in a smart grid environment.

IP-7: Protocol and Network Design for Low Latency Wireless Communications

  • Thomas Novlan, Samsung Research America, United States of America
  • Sridhar Rajagopal, Samsung Research America, United States of America
  • Jianzhong Zhang, Samsung Research America, United States of America
Current 4G roundtrip latencies are on the order of about 10 ms for the air interface and 50-100ms end-to-end, based upon a minimum 1 ms subframe time granularity and necessary resource allocation and access protocol overhead. Although this has been sufficient for existing applications and services, new applications and services are anticipated to be supported by 5G networks, including cloud-based gaming and content distribution, real-world and real-time interaction, vehicle communications (e.g. V2X) and mission-critical IoT networks, and virtual and augmented reality (e.g. Samsung Gear VR, Google glass, etc.), which potentially require an order of magnitude faster roundtrip latencies than 4G. Samsung has proposed <1 ms low latency (LoLa) as one of the seven key “Rainbow of requirements” that will enable 5G wireless communications, which has been incorporated in the ITU-R framework for defining 5G communications.
Such severe latency constraints will have important implications on design choices at several layers of the protocol stack and the core network. This work addresses the PHY/MAC design and core network architecture challenges and emerging technologies for supporting low-latency wireless communications.

Physical layer design: To meet the 5G requirements for LoLa, the traditional 4G frame-based resource allocation approaches may need to be reconsidered to allow for more flexible scheduling with reduced overhead. For example, always-on connection techniques may be introduced to reduce latency for resource allocation grants between the UE and the eNB.
The very high frequencies proposed for 5G networks may potentially be well-suited for LoLa communications. Compared to LTE at low frequencies (sub-3 GHz), the numerology may be scaled down for higher frequencies such as 28/38 GHz, such that individual transport blocks may be transmitted within dozens of micro-seconds, enabling air-interface round-trip delays of <1ms.
In addition, new PHY waveforms may be developed which are more adaptive to different deployment scenarios and support LoLa in a more robust manner.

Access protocol design: Service-aware access protocol techniques need to be designed with multiple levels of latency-sensitive traffic support. The control overhead and random access delay need to be minimized, however the transmissions still need to be robust to minimize ARQ. For new applications such as V2X, IDLE/DRX techniques may not be possible and the connection lifetime may be shorter than existing applications. Security is another important consideration that can impact latency on multiple levels. The handshaking protocol for network authentication and processing complexity for encryption/source identification needs to be considered.

Core network design: The architecture of 5G networks needs to be redesigned considering different node types with varying data rate and latency requirements. Research is needed to define the “optimal” network architecture to meet LoLa requirements. It might be necessary to deploy core network and service-layer functions closer to the radio access to meet LoLa requirements and support local communication among users at the same site. Processing at the edge of the network (including devices) to reduce core network latency should be considered. Features such as SDN, NFV should be investigated for low latency and to allow network optimization for different use cases. Dynamic connectivity/routing for “Network on Demand” features could be incorporated where heterogeneous connectivity is enabled via multiple wireless interfaces and switched in an intelligent manner. Another major consideration for enabling LoLa is backhaul, which will be more challenging to provide for dense, multi-Gb/s 5G networks. Utilizing mmW frequencies for providing access network backhaul may be one solution for furthering the deployment of low-latency networks. In-band backhaul could be investigated with multiple aggregation levels. C-RAN architectures with < ms data transfer capabilities to support distributed processing also need to be investigated to enable LoLa.

IP-8: Prototyping Adaptive Multi GBit/s Access and Backhaul Links for for 5G mmWave Small Cells

  • Eckhard Ohlmer, National Instruments, Germany
  • Vincent Kotzsch, National Instruments, Germany
5G wireless networks will have to address a very heterogeneous set of demanding requirements. Multi GBit/s per user throughput and sub-milli second latencies are among the most prominent requirements which need to be met in order to solve use cases such as mobile reconfigurable backhaul to connect small cells or hotspot scenarios in shopping malls or at public events.
3GPP LTE standardization already works on evolutions to the standard that partly address these requirements, e.g., by aggregating up to 32 20 MHz carriers to support peak data rates of about 3 GBit/s. Yet, there seems to be consensus that these additions to the standard will not suffice to support multi GBit/s for a multitude of users in parallel. mmWave enabled small cell networks, utilizing more than a GHz of bandwidth and adaptive, highly directional transmission at mmWave carrier frequencies are considered to be one of the major means to solve the data rate problem.
The collaborative European research project MiWaveS aims at advancing this research area holistically towards standardization, by covering system design concepts, algorithms and protocols, RF component and antenna research down to prototyping and demonstration of key technology components for mmWave transmission.
While significant experience has been gained regarding channel measurements and basic physical layer design for mmWave, also on an experimentation or prototyping level, the same does not hold true for higher layers. Different channel characteristics in combination with highly directive transmission require a re-design of access protocols and their experimental validation. Key to such experiments is a testbed which provides real time signal processing capabilities, closed loop bi-directional operation, and means for hardware / algorithm reconfiguration on a sub-us scale.
The MiWaveS testbed addresses these challenges by integrating different real time configurable beam steering antennas for backhaul and access link applications, real time configurable RF transceivers for transmission at 60 GHz and 70 GHz with a base band unit which supports prototyping of real time physical layer signal processing and higher layer protocols on FPGA and real time controller based hardware.
In this contribution we will focus on lessons learned from a prototyping perspective in particular with regard to integrating a complete system, comprising adaptive antennas, RF transceivers, physical layers and higher layers. Particular attention is paid to signal processing challenges, for instance with respect to parallel processing or coping with RF impairments in mmWave bands.

IP-10: The Internet of Sharks - know what's in the water before diving in...

  • Michael Barkway, TTP, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
The vision of the IoT world is that every Thing is connected and discoverable from its own IP address, sharing information freely. But will the future really be like this? There are good reasons to think that it won’t. This presentation analyses the nature of the IoT and sets out some of the challenges and opportunities for the next phase of its deployment.
In the IoT, each Thing carries a finite cost to establish the device and a maintenance cost to resolve and maintain its connection. For the IoT, the cost model is many-to-many and the issue of who pays makes a pivotal difference. If the information is expensive to collect, then anything that adds to the cost is unlikely to be sustainable, and the data that’s collected is unlikely to be shared.
This presentation will show that putting a device on the Internet and sharing information freely will not be the prevalent model. Instead, applications will be driven by cost of ownership and who is able to harvest the data they produce. In this more complex version of the IoT, it’s important to know what’s in the water before diving in...
