A study of wireless protocols for industrialIoT focusing on performance, security and power efficiency.BackgroundIn recent years, industrial internet of things (Industrial IoT) hasbecome the most popular industrial technical paradigms and business concepts.With the continuous integration of emerging information and communicationtechnologies (ICT), the industry is envisaged to experience a revolution in itsway of operating toward autonomous (Meng Z. et al, 2017). The envisioned industrialsystems can potentially empower collaborative Practices, which promises greaterproduction flexibility and product variability with minimized humaninterventions.
As an example, new services such as real-time event processingor 24/7 access to tracking information will be introduced into the supply chain(Sanchez-Iborra, R. Cano, M. 2016). Having a thorough monitoring systemdeployed all along the manufacturing and supply chain allows enriching thecomplete value chain with precious information, minimizing losses againstunexpected events, and hence improving both business processes and theinformation exchange among stakeholders (Business-to-Business (B2B) networks) (Stock,T. Seliger, G. 2016).
Industrial IoT, incorporates machine learning and big data technology, harnessing the sensor data machine-2-machine (M2M)communication and automation technologies that have existed in industrialsettings for years. What’s changing is that the Industrial IoT concept isdriving the automation industry to ensure greater interoperability of itsproducts. And that means it’s time to find standards to apply to thesetechnologies and their applications. Related WorkAnalyzing Industrial IoT throughmodelling is to be regarded as the best way of the study for better understandingof the challenges imposed by such systems. As modelling of the Industrial IoTis related to a wide context, we categorize the related work into the followingcategories from i to iv i. Research trends in IndustrialIoTGubbi et al. present acloud-centric vision to implement the Industrial IoT worldwide. They discussthe core technologies and application areas that can define the IoT researchdirection in the future.
While Jara et al. consider thechallenges and opportunities in extending the public IPv4 address space for theInternet of Everything through IPv6 to support the IoT capabilities. Sallai, G.first summarizes the challenges of the Current Internet and draws up thevisions and recent capabilities of the Future Internet and then, Sallai, G.
identifiesthe clusters of the relevant research topics defining them as the chapters ofFuture Internet research activities in a layered model. It includes basicresearch on the Internet Science, the Internet Engineering up to the FutureInternet applications and experiments. While Wirelesssensor networks (WSNs) provide a virtual layer in which the data about thephysical world can be retrieved by any computing system. Alcaraz et al. emphasize that WSNs are an invaluableresource for realizing the vision of the IoT in terms of integration, securityand other issues. The collection, modelling, reasoning and distribution ofcontext with respect to sensor data as well as context aware computing play acritical role in the IoT applications.
ii. Securityand privacy challenges Babar et al. provideanalysis of IoT in the context of security, privacy and confidentiality issuesand propose the Security Model for the IoT (Babaret al. make analyses of the Internet of Things with regard to security, privacyand confidentiality and propose the security model for the Internet of Things.).Weber considers new security and privacy challenges from the internationallegislation that is pertaining to the right to information, provisionsprohibiting or otherwise limiting the use rules on IT security legislation,supporting the use mechanisms of the IoT(Weberconsiders new security and data protection challenges arising frominternational law in relation to the right to information, provisionsprohibiting or otherwise restricting the application of IT security law rules,in support of IoT usage mechanisms.).
Skarmeta et al. propose adistributed capability-based access control mechanism. The latter is based onpublic key cryptography in order to cope with some security and privacychallenges in the IoT. Their solution uses the optimized Elliptic Curve DigitalSignature Algorithm inside the smart object.
Slavin et al. introducethe security requirement patterns that represent reusable security practicesthat software engineers can apply to improve security in their systems. Thepaper proposes a new method that combines an inquiry cycle-based approach with the feature diagram notation to review only relevant patterns andquickly select the most appropriate patterns for the situation(1 Skarmeta et al. propose a distributed,capacity-based access control mechanism.

Heer et al. discuss theproblems and application possibilities of the known Internet protocols and securitysolutions in the IoT.
The authors also describe the deployment model and thecore security requirements and emphasize the technical restrictions beingspecific to the standard IP security protocols. (Heer et al. discuss problemsand possibilities to apply known Internet protocols and security solutions inIdOT. The authors also describe the implementation model and basic securityrequirements and focus on the technical limitations of standard IP securityprotocols.) Security and privacy Energy issues within IoTEnergy consumption (EC) is the keyproblem in IoT. Zhou et al. describe the energy models (EMs) of the WSNnode core parts, such as processors, radio frequency modules and sensors. Thebasis of EM is the event trigger mechanism.
The authors first simulate the nodecomponents and then estimate the EC of network protocols using this EM. Themodel presented here is suitable for WSN EC analysis, for evaluation of networkprotocols and for WSN application development. Schmidt et al. describes a method to construct models forsensor nodes based on few simple measurements. They provide a sample wheremodels are integrated in a simulation environment within the proposed runtimeframework to support the model-driven design process. Measurements show thatthe proposed model enables to significantly reduce EC. Lanzisera et al. propose a’communicating power supply’ (CPS) to enable the communication of energy andcontrol information between the device and a building management system.

Inparticular, the paper identifies many situations in which Wi-Fi is superior toBluetooth, countering previous reports. The study also identifies a couple ofscenarios that are better handled by Bluetooth.

offer a “Communication Power Supply” (CPS) to enable power andcontrol information communication between the device and the buildingmanagement system…. Friedman and Krivolapov describe a study that deals withthe combined energy and bandwidth effect of the usage of Bluetooth and Wi-Ficonnection in smartphones.

Theconclusions of this study provide information on preferred usage patterns thatmay be of interest to scientists, researchers and smartphone developers.Venckauskas et al. present a configurable prototype of the IoT, which allowsfor various experiments to be carried out to determine the relationship betweenenergy and safety in different IoT modes. The paper also presents themethodology of energy measurement in the IoT unit. The methodology providesresults in two ways: ideal (without the influence of noise in the communicationenvironment in which IoT operates) and real (with the influence ofnoise).
) iii. Quality of service Shaoshuai et al. propose themulti-objective decision-making using the evaluation model of service quality.This model takes into consideration both the state of the system and the usersettings to improve the model of the QoS validity. The calculated assessment ofthe proposed model can be used as a parameter for estimation and selection ofservice. Jin et al. present various architectures of IoT for smartcity applications and determine their required network QoS. As QoS is one ofthe major networking challenges, the topic is at the focus in both wired andwireless networks.
In WSNs, many researches pursue problems related to radiointerfaces and radio noise interference. Fok et al. state that, in order to meet the individualneeds of many systems, users require multi-dimensional QoS. In this respect,the authors present a simple abstraction mechanism, which consists of QoSfunctions of each application. This function combines various aspects of QoSfor each user to a single value, which is used to define the best method ofinteraction.
Liang et al. address the discontinuousreception/transmission (DRX/DTX) optimization, by asking how to maximize thesleep periods of devices while guaranteeing their QoS, especially on theaspects of traffic bit rate, packet delay and packet loss rate in the IoTapplications. There are proposed efficient schemes to optimize DRX/DTXparameters and schedule devices’ packets with the base station. The main ideaof the presented scheme is the balance between the QoS parameters and DRX/DTXconfigurations. Simulation results show that schemes can guarantee traffic bitrate, packet delay and packet loss rate while saving energy of user equipment. Shaoshuai et al.provides decision making through a model for evaluating service quality.
Thistemplate takes into account both the system status and the user settings toimprove the QoS validity model. The calculated evaluation of the proposed modelcan be used as a parameter for evaluating and selecting the service. Jin et al.introduces different IoT architectures for intelligent urban applications anddefines your desired QoS network. Since QoS is one of the biggest networkchallenges, this topic focuses on wired and wireless networks. Several studieswithin the framework of the WSM deal with radio interface and interferenceproblems. Seal et al. claim that users need a multidimensional QoS to meet theindividual needs of several systems.
In this sense, the authors present asimple abstraction mechanism consisting of the QoS function of each application.This function combines different aspects of QoS for each user in a value thatis used to define the best method of interaction. Liang et al. aims atdiscontinuous reception/transmission optimization (DRX/DTX) and asks how tomaximize device downtime while ensuring QoS for devices, especially in terms ofbit rate, packet delay and packet loss rate for IoT applications. Pproposedefficient schemes are provided tooptimize the DRX/DTX parameters and the device packages programmed with a basestation. The basic idea of the schema is a well-balanced relationship betweenQoS parameters and DRX/DTX configurations. Simulation results show that schemescan guarantee traffic bit rate, packet delay and packet loss rate while savingenergy for the user’s devices.
