Topology control for building scalable energy-efficient Internet of Things

Jun Huang, Qiang Duan, Cong Cong Xing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the most significant recent developments in the field of networking. Energy efficiency and scalability are two important technical issues that must be fully addressed in order to build high-performance IoTs.Topology control (TC) plays a crucial role in scalable and energy-efficient IoTs. In this chapter, we first give an overview of TC technologies and their applications in IoTs. Then we describe a systematic approach for topology construction in IoT to achieve scalability and energy efficiency. Such an approach includes a hierarchical system framework for IoT deployment, an optimization model for realizing energy efficiency, and an algorithm for solving the optimization mode. Experimental results are also presented in the chapter to show effectiveness of this topology construction approach.
