D8.2.3 Dissemination Activities

1. Executive Summary
The reviewers strongly encouraged the consortium to spend significant efforts in spreading the right
messages about the results of this project. Therefore, one of the main objectives of the IoT6
consortium during the last year has been to promote the project and disseminate its knowledge,
experiences, and project results to: researchers, people working on projects facing similar research
issues, practitioners, experts, SMEs and the industry at large.
IoT6s achievements have been made public through deliverables which are accessible to everyone.
The consortium has disseminated its innovative outcomes to the research community through
articles in international peer-reviewed scientific journals, magazines, books, workshops and
conferences.
In order to reach the non-academic community (i.e., SMEs, and industry), IoT6 has also published
white papers summarizing the main use cases developed in the context of the project and produced
an SME Handbook providing advice and guidelines on how to integrate IPv6 and IoT.
The IoT6 consortium has been actively involved and taking the leadership in chairing and
organizing peer-reviewed, well-known, international conferences and workshops such as the IoT6
project conference Extending Seamlessly to the Internet of Things (esIoT 2014), the 2013 IEEE
Globecom IoT Symposium in Atlanta, the IoT Forum 2014 sessions and workshop in London, the
2014 IEEE IoT World Forum in Seoul and the 2014 IPv6 Forum Summits in Paris and Beijing.
In addition, the IoT6 consortium has taken part in events, such as FIA2014, the European Summit
on the Future Internet 2014 and other initiatives gathering researchers and experts involved in other
projects facing similar challenges (which can be overcome by using IoT6 solutions.
The IoT6 consortium has also approached the industrial community (including SMEs), and put
effort into spreading the knowledge and project achievements through the standardization bodies
(IETF, ETSI) as they involve leading industry players: The IETF attracts about 1000 experts to its
meetings and ETSI has some 600 industry members. By being active in these bodies, IoT6 seeks to
interest the industry with its project solutions and impact the standardization process (mainly in the
IETF 6LoWPAN, 6lo and 6TiSCH, and in ETSI ISG). At the same time, the participation of IoT6
partners in standardization bodies provided the opportunity to monitor current market trends and
expectations of the industry. The industrial community has been also approached through
participation in business/industry events, such as ICT Spring 2014 in Luxembourg with 2000
influential participants.

2. Dissemination Activities and Efforts


In order to approach a broad technical and non-technical audience, as well as the Future Internet
research community, the IoT6 consortium used the project Website, and social networks. Following
the feedback/requests of the reviewers, received during the 2nd year review, the project Website has
been completely redesigned, and all the dissemination material has been made available there.

2.1.

IoT6 Web Portal

To ensure a professional communication on the Internet during Y3, the IoT6 consortium decided to
follow the reviewers recommendations and look for a professional Web designer for entirely
reshaping the IoT6 Website to look like a business Website instead of a technical or project site.
The revised site is available at http://www.iot6.eu and can also be accessed through www.iot6.com
and www.iot6.org.

Figure 1: Snapshot of the IoT6 Website Homepage

D8.2.3 Dissemination Activities


The IoT6 Website (whose homepage is shown in Figure 1) has been organized into three main
sections: About IoT6, IPv6 for IoT and News and Documentation.
The first section About IoT provides an overview of the project, its aims and objectives, and it
presents the consortium (with links to each partners homepage). Beyond this general information,
it describes the WP structure, and the main achievements of the project. In the menu area, visitors
can access all the public deliverables.
In the second section IPv6 for IoT, useful information about the evolution of the IPv6 standard
and other emerging IPv6-related protocols is provided, in addition to the advantages that IoT can
gain by using IPv6. Technical details about the IoT6 architecture and use cases developed in the
context of the project are also available. Finally, in this section, visitors can fill in an IPv6 survey
proving their feedback (based on their own experience), about the use of IPv6 for IoT applications.
In the third section News and Documentation, all the news related to the project and a list of
useful links (related to IPv6 and/or IoT) can be found. Moreover, all the main outcomes of the
dissemination activities are also available, such as the list of IoT6-related publications, the
Handbook for SMEs (refer to Section 1.2), IoT6 postcards (shown in Figure 2) and posters. Finally,
in this section, visitors to the Website can be informed about all the events attended and/or
organized by the IoT6 consortium. Also, for those willing to get started with IPv6, a link for
checking their IPv6 connection is available.
(a) Manageability with IPv6 in IoT

(b) Scalability with IPv6 in IoT

(c) Scalability with IPv6 in IoT

Figure 2: IoT6 Postcard


The new Website has been kept up-to-date, and reflects all the events related to the project, and
especially the IoT6 outcomes. It highlights the tangible and quantifiable results of the project that
are of interest for various industries, SMEs, researchers, etc.
The most important news and events related to the projects have also been advertised through
Social networks, i.e., Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook, which are also accessible from the IoT6
Website homepage.

IoT6 Handbook for SMEs

Following the dissemination plan and strategy, IoT6 approached SMEs as well as researchers and
members of Academia (by means of international conference papers and journals, refer to Section
2.3). One of the main project outcomes during Y3 has been a Handbook written to support SMEs in
the unavoidable transition from IPv4 to IPv6, and in the use of IPv6 in IoT applications. Figure 3
shows the cover page of the Handbook.

Figure 3: Cover page of the IoT6 Handbook for SMEs


The Handbook has been organized in three main chapters: Chapter 1 provides an overview of the
main benefits that the Internet of Things can gain by using IPv6, and describes some potential area
of applications, such as cloud, mobile word, and building automation. Chapter 2 details for the
SMEs, the main benefit of integrating IPv6 and IoT. As an example, some of the use (and business)
cases developed in the context of the IoT6 project are presented, such as the Smart Office and the
Safety Alert scenario. Chapter 3 provides some practical advice and several technical details about
how SMEs can set up IPv6, and how different services (mail and Web server, DNS, etc.) can be
enabled with IPv6.
Several IPv6-experts, namely, Bill Manning, Staff Researcher at USC ISI, Eric Vyncke, Co-Chair
of the IPv6 Council of Belgium, Distinguished System Engineer at Cisco Systems, Adjunct
Professor at the University of Liege, and winner of the Jim Bound IPv6 Deployment Award 2014,
Mikael Lind, CTO at gogo6, and Lawrence E. Hughes, CTO, Sixscape Communications Ltd, have
provided contributions to Chapter 3. Given their great experience and deep knowledge of the IPv6
technology, their input has given tremendous value to the book. The
Handbook
has
been
disseminated during several events, either attended or organized by members of the IoT6
consortium. It was presented for the first time at the Danube-IT conference in Novi Sad. The
Handbook was also widely spread to SMEs, during the ICT Spring conference in Luxembourg.

the Future Internet to maintain European competitiveness in the global marketplace.
An IoT6 demonstration was set up for the FIA conference. The demonstration illustrated several
outcomes of IoT6:

The potential of IPv6 to integrate heterogeneous components of the Internet of Things together,
including:

Local sensors and actuators

Digcovery service (based in Spain)

Smart Things Information Service (based in Korea)

Software as a Service (SaaS) (based in Paris)

Remote integration of smart buildings/offices (based in Geneva)

The demonstration included several sensors and actuators enabling local interactions, including
multi-protocol interactions. The whole deployment was connected through IPv6 to the remote
resources (DigCovery, STIS, SaaS, Smart Office).

2.3.1.7. IoT Forum and IoT Week, June 16th - 20th, 2014, London 2014

The Internet of Things International Forum aims at the development of a worldwide interoperable
Internet of Things, addressing technology barriers, business and societal challenges to create the
conditions for a truly worldwide Internet of Things ecosystem and market. It does this through
promoting international dialogue and cooperation on the Internet of Things between diverse actors
from industry, research and government and across sectors.
MI is a Founder and Board member and host of the IoT Forum and played a leading part during the
IoT Week programme. IoT6 took part in the Technology WG session of the international IoT
Forum (London, June 2014) and presented the IPv6 vision in IoT. Moreover, MI organized with the
other IoT6 members, special sessions on IoT and IPv6 which strengthened the links and aligned the
visions on IPv6 potential for IoT related projects.

During IoT Week 2014, MI organized two IoT6-related sessions including:


IoT Emerging Standards

Chaired by Sbastien Ziegler (MI), Coordinator of IoT6 project, with:

Latif Ladid, Chair of the IPv6 Forum and IEEE IoT Subcommittee, SnT/UL

Marco Carugi, ITU

Patrick Guillemin, ETSI

Pascal Thubert, Chair of the 6TiSCH Working Group at the IETF

Denise McKenzie, OGC

The Internet of Things success will be driven by the integration and harmonization of all
communication systems federating our work and life. Therefore, the systems can provide ubiquitous
communication and computing with the purpose of defining a new generation of services. This
session explored the recent development in the area of standardization related to the Internet of
Things. It discussed the potential of emerging standards to provide a global access and better
integration of a highly fragmented Internet of Things. This addressed the issues regarding emerging
communication requirements in terms of lightweight versions of IPv6-related protocols, emerging
semantics, platforms, and application requirements. The speakers and panelists were leading experts
from various standardization bodies and shared their views on the most promising on-going
developments in terms of standardization for the Internet of Things.

Jorge Pereira, European Commission
Srdjan Krco, Ericsson
Bruno Smets, Philips Lighting
Antonio Skarmeta, University of Murcia
Pascal Thubert, Chair of the 6TiSCH Working Group at the IETF
Veronika McKillop, Cisco and President of the UK IPv6 Council
Take the Internet where no other network has been before states Dr. Vint Cerf, one of the
Founders of the Internet and Honorary Chairman of the IPv6 Forum. Indeed, the Internet of Things
(IoT) is taking the Internet where no network has been before with expected 50 billion connected
devices. The Internet of Things success will be driven by the integration and harmonization of all
communication systems federating our work and life. Thereby, the systems can provide ubiquitous
communication and computing with the purpose of defining a new generation of services. In this
context, IPv6 is a key enabler in terms of scalability, interoperability and reliability. The panel
presented and discussed recent trends related to IPv6 and Internet of Things convergence, by
gathering research and industrial perspectives with a paradigm shift in defragmenting the Internet of
Things through IPv6. The session addressed the issues regarding emerging communication
requirements in terms of lightweight versions of IPv6-related protocols, emerging semantics,
platforms, and application requirements. The IoT impact on security and privacy requirements was
also taken into account since it is one of the major pending challenges for the IoT. Finally, the
definition of new advanced architectures and models for the IoT integration with the Cloud
Computing, and Big Data frameworks was also considered.

ICT Spring session introduction


The public IPv4 address space managed by IANA (http://www.iana.org) has been completely
depleted by February 1st, 2011. This creates by itself an interesting challenge when adding new
things and enabling new services on the Internet for the banking sector and for SMEs. The IoT
capabilities would be greatly reduced without public IP addresses. Most discussions about IoT have
been based on the illusionary assumption that the IP address space is an unlimited resource or it is
even taken for granted that IP is like oxygen produced for free by nature. However, IPv6 is ready to
take on this challenge.
In the early 90s, IPv6 was designed by the IETF IPng (Next Generation) Working Group and
promoted by the IPv6 Forum since 1999. Expanding the IPv4 protocol suite with larger address
space and defining new capabilities restoring end-to-end connectivity, and end-to-end services,
several IETF Working Groups have worked on many deployment scenarios with transition models
to interact with IPv4 infrastructure and services. They have also enhanced a combination of features
that were not tightly designed or scalable in IPv4. These features were IP mobility, ad hoc services,
etc. catering for the extreme scenario where IP becomes a commodity service enabling lowest cost
networking deployment of (for example) large scale sensor networks, RFID, SmartGrid, IP in the
car or to any imaginable scenario where networking adds value to the commodity.
This expert session had the goal to restore some sanity in this area by discussing the open and
scalable architecture model and showcase with examples on how the banking sector and the SMEs
could exploit the new features provided by IPv6 and IoT.

IPSO Challenge Competition, Sensors Expo 2014, June 2014,


Chicago

The IPSO CHALLENGE 2014 competition is initiated and organized by the IPSO Alliance. IPSO
can be followed on https://twitter.com/ipsoalliance.
The purpose of this competition is to promote concepts and benefits of the Internet of Things and
Internet Protocol based Machine to Machine (M2M) applications. The competition seeks innovative
applications that can be utilized and commercialized in the open market. All submitted solutions
aree judged, with the ten best ones receiving official awards.
Markus Jung and Jrgen Weidinger of VUT submitted IoTSyS Control Logic Editor to the
IPSO CHALLENGE 2014 competition, based on IoT6s integration middleware, which has been
developed and released as open source under the title IoTSyS (www.iotsys.org). The entry was
selected as a semi-finalist through a closed judgement of the entries, performed by international
industry IoT experts This provided the opportunity to present the practical research project results to
an international industry audience at the Sensor Expo 2014 in Chicago and, furthermore,
participation at the IoT pavilion organized by the IPSO Alliance. The event raised great attention
and interest on the practical research outcome of the IoT6 project.

IPSO Awarded Jim Bound Award

As part of our IoT6 dissemination efforts, Geoff Mulligan the inventor of 6LoWPAN was
recognised and awarded the Jim Bound Award. Our project is linked to him, since IoT6 is based on
6LoWPAN which all other IoT projects are not using. Geoff Mulligan has also recognized Antonio
Jara (HESSO) and Markus Jung (VUT) for their IoT6 implementations.
After receiving the award, Geoff Mulligan stated on his Facebook page: I keep going back to this
and saying "Wow". I would like to share the incredible message that was included with the award it is not just an honour to be recognized but to be recognized in the memory of such a great friend
and colleague, Jim Bound. Thank you to Latif Ladid and the IPv6 Forum.

3. IERC Collaboration Plan


The task of the IERC is to streamline the standardisation strategy for IoT technology and
applications, to propose priorities and, eventually a standardisation strategy. The goal is to identify
IoT pre-normative research work at European and International level. The IoT Standardisation
requirement positions will be reviewed by the IERC Coordinators and potentially by an IoT
Industry Specification Group in order to couple research and standards which in the end will benefit
the European industry that will market the products and the services.

IoT Pilot with EU-China FIRE (ECIAO) Project

This IoT Pilot was selected for its practical contribution to the IoT6 project by facilitating and
supporting the set-up of common pilot(s) between EU and China.
With the consortium partners active in IoT6 and ECIAO, it was decided to develop a common EUChina IPv6 Pilot in the area of Internet of Things (IoT) using IPv6 in order to demonstrate the
control of objects in one region from the other, using IPv6 connectivity. Internet of Things is a
worldwide hot market topic and also one of the top topics identified in regular EU and China
policies dialogues.
In Europe, Orange has contributed with its IPv6 programme that aims at defining Oranges global
IPv6 strategy and assisting Orange affiliates in enforcing such strategy, thereby covering both
residential and corporate markets, both wired and wireless/mobile infrastructures. Mandat
International has extended its testbed to include both IPv6 and related protocol deployments
(6LoWPAN, CoAP, etc.), as well as non-IP protocols deployment (KNX, ZigBee, X10, etc.).
In China, the Beijing Internet Institute (BII) has outlined in this phase its IoT pilot to develop an
SDK interface for the IEEE1888 devices, test the protocol and this implementation in IPv6 testbed.
The Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT) is one of the leading research and
development institute in the field of IPv6 in China, actively involved in the research of IPv6 based
platform and application development. It has outlined its IoT Platform and its IPv4/IPv6 Transition
testbed. Orange China has outlined its IPv6 IoT pilot jointly with Orange in France.

3.2.1. IPv6 Pilot at Orange in France


The Orange IPv6 programme started in 2008 and led to the organization of many pilots since then,
including in France. The majority of these pilots are meant to validate the design recommendations
and operational guidelines that have been documented as the Groups Global IPv6 Strategy, for the
sake of IPv6 connectivity service delivery in various contexts wired and mobile/wireless,
residential and corporate markets.
In France, the IPv6 VPN service offering is commercially available since 2009, while several pilots
have been conducted since 2010 to assess the design of IPv6 Internet access services for both wired
and mobile customers. As such:

The French IPv6 backbone is operational and several thousands of pilot users (Orange
employees) have been invited to test the IPv6 connectivity service as per the Dual Stack
architectural design summarized in Figure 12.

34

D8.2.3 Dissemination Activities

Figure 12: Oranges Dual Stack Architectural Design (Network View)

An IPv6 APN has been deployed in 2010 to not only validate the Dual Stack design of Oranges
mobile networking infrastructures, but also to test IPv6-ready mobile terminals from various
vendors. A specific pilot for 4G/LTE customers is currently underway.

The WSN environment deployed by Orange Labs Beijing could be further expanded so that
controllers connected to the French network could remotely access and control IPv6 sensors, but
this needs to be further investigated depending on the network connectivity conditions in China,
among other considerations.

3.2.2. IPv6 Pilot at Mandat International, Switzerland


Mandat International has built up a distributed testbed gathering heterogeneous sensors and
actuators in two main locations:

A Smart Office testbed in Geneva with end-users. This environment enables


experimentations in real conditions, addressing the multidimensional nature of the Internet
of Things.

A university lab in Geneva with more technically focused experimentations.

The testbed has been used in several European research projects, addressing research topics such as
energy efficiency, safety, smart buildings, WSN deployments and comfort. It intends to gather all
kinds of devices, reflecting the inherent heterogeneity of the Internet of things. The deployed
sensors and actuators are heterogeneous and can be split in three main categories:

IP/6LoWPAN and CoAP based devices

IP but non-CoAP based devices

Non-IP devices

The non-IP sensors and actuators are integrated to the IPv6 environment through the UDG
technology, enabling multiprotocol interoperability and legacy protocol integration into IPv6.
The described pilot was focused on a subset of CoAP and 6LoWPAN sensors, accessible through
global public IPv6 addresses.
35

D8.2.3 Dissemination Activities


The main objective is to test and validate the possibility to enable a testbed of sensors and actuators
distributed across Europe and China. The experimentation should be able to access the various
sensors regardless of their effective location. The first step of joint pilot intends to demonstrate
direct end-to-end access to distributed sensors located in Beijing and Geneva through IPv6.
The integration concept relies on a triple levels of integration effort:

At the sensor level, we have adopted a common interface and environment, by using
6LowPAN and CoAP. This enables the sensors to provide a RESTful interface, with a large
scale capacity potential.

At the network level, we have decided to use direct and secured IPv6 connection between
both testbeds. IPv6 provides a flexible and highly scalable network environment. A major
concern was to enable a transparent interconnection from the sensor to the application
wherever each one was located.

At the application level, applications have been developed to interact with the CoAP enabled
sensors. In order to demonstrate the integration, two Websites are being implemented in
each site with direct on-line access to sensors from both sides.

RESTful Architecture approach


The RESTful architecture approach is designed for Web applications, whose purpose is to reduce
the complexity of the development and improve the scalability of the system. The RESTful
architecture interfaces are designed according to the following principles:

All the things on the Internet can be abstracted as resources

Each resource is corresponding to a unique resource identifier

Resources can be operated through generic connector interface

Various operations for resource will not change resource identifier

All operations are stateless

The testbed of BUPT has implemented the RESTful architecture approach. The data which is
collected by wireless sensors can be accessed by restful architecture interface. However, the private
data which users do not want to make public will be protected by the WSN management system.
Data in the testbed is abstracted as resources which users can call through IPv6/IPv4. No matter
what kind of system environment or the development environment that users use, they can easily
have access to these resources. Data in the testbed will be presented with XML format and JSON
format.
According to data of the testbed, resources can be divided into 4 different types:

A list of gateways

Lists of sensors which are managed by gateways

Real time data which is collected by sensors

History data of sensors which is stored in the database of WSN management system

According to the types of resources, the interfaces are designed into 4 types. The following Table
shows RESTful interfaces which are used to share with the 3rd party:

Initial tests and validation
A first step has been to deploy a joint IPv6 network between Beijing and Geneva. The IPv6 network
has been tested and validated and can now provide direct and transparent interconnections. The
connections can use SSL and can be tunneled and secured with IPSec, if needed.
A first set of sensors have been connected on each site. They are remotely accessible and enable
distant interactions from each site. In the Geneva site for instance, wireless senor motes, including
temperature and humidity sensor, as well as some actuators, including a heating valve and a light
switch are permanently deployed and accessible to the Chinese partners through their IPv6 address
and CoAP interface.
37

D8.2.3 Dissemination Activities


A first set of sensors and actuators have been successfully integrated into a common network
enabling European and Chinese researchers to use them. They are remotely accessible and are
paving the way to larger scale integration efforts. This initial pilot demonstrates the potential of
IPv6 and CoAP for such integrations.
The current effort is oriented in three main directions:
The extension of the testbed with additional sensors and actuators;
The integration of other academic and industrial partners in view of addressing scalability
requirements;
The development of two Web applications: one in China and one in Europe, providing and
demonstrating simultaneous access to sensors deployed in both locations (Geneva and
Beijing).

HEPIA Testbed
Mandat International has a research laboratory at the HEPIA (Haute cole du paysage, d'ingnierie
et d'architecture de Genve), which is a part of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western
Switzerland (HESSO).
This testbed includes various types of sensors and actuators used to test all kinds of building
components and use cases. An advanced network based on IPv6 and several servers have been
deployed to test in real conditions the different components developed during the different
European projects. The deployment includes all sets of sensors and actuators, as well as energy
meters.
By the nature of the building, this testbed provides the possibility to test a modern faade of a
building. It is particularly interesting to research and fine tune faades and blinds related algorithms
for smart buildings. The testbed has also given the possibility to associate HEPIA students to some
of these developments.
The following pictures give an overview of the HEPIA testbed:

3.2.3. IPv6 Pilot at BII


China is facing serious energy challenges during its rapid development where energy savings has
become a hot topic. Every year, the total consumption of construction energy is increasing fast. The
answer to this problem is IEEE 1888.
A team at BII is focusing on IPv6 experiments and pilots of IEEE1888 implementation and its
energy-saving applications. The applications include smart meters, information collection and
control for electronic appliances and an energy management system which can be wildly used in the
modern green-energy buildings and other IoT applications. The short goal of this team is to develop
a SDK interface for the IEEE1888 devices, test the protocol and this implementation in an IPv6
testbed.
IEEE1888 is an IEEE standard called ubiquitous green community control network protocol. This
standard is proposed and maintained by BII Group, the University of Tokyo, China
Telecommunications, Inter, Cisco and Beijing Jiaotong University. Mr. Liu Dong from BII Group is
the Chair of IEEE1888 working group.

D8.2.3 Dissemination Activities


The standard identifies gateways for field-bus networks, data storages for archiving and developing
data sharing platform, and application units to be important system components for developing
digital communities: i.e., building-scale and city-wide ubiquitous facility networking infrastructure.
The standard defines a data exchange protocol that generalizes and interconnects these components
(gateways, storages, application units) over the IPv4/v6-based networks. This enables integration of
multiple facilities, data storages, application services such as central management, energy saving,
environmental monitoring and alarm notification systems.
Facility networking in buildings, houses and factories is now considered to be a promising tool for
energy management or energy-savings, and networking of facilities with TCP/IP protocols has
certainly enabled building-scale or city-wide energy management. However, most of the systems
are proprietarily and independently developed, deployed and operated, which made the installation
and running costs quite high.
It is a communication infrastructure that aims to construct a new network for the renewal of the
facilities, next generations facility management, and the energy conservation including small- and
medium-sized facilities. This aspect is expanded from a past facility management to the operation
management that targets energy conservation and the integration of the management platform. This
infrastructure will be used for some system-level collaborations in addition to the energy
conservation.
The standard describes remote control architecture of digital community, intelligent building groups
and digital metropolitan networks; specifies interactive data formats between devices and systems;
and gives a standardized definition of equipment, service services, signals, and interactive messages
in this digital community network. The digital community remote control network opens
application interfaces for public administration, public services, property management services, and
individual services, which enables intelligent interconnection, collaboration service, remote
surveillance and central management to be feasible. Surveillance network, consumer electronics,
remote service systems, public administration systems, security linkage systems and emergency
reaction systems will be integrated into the community network seamlessly. Based on TCP/IP open
systems, the network architecture adopts active and emerging technologies, supporting diverse
access technologies in physical layer, supporting IPv4/v6 in network layer, integrating well with the
next generation converged networks. The standard aims to provide proper remote control and
collaborating management solutions for operators, community administrators, public service
provider, government departments and individual users, so as to use and control facilities in
community and building groups effectively, such as sensors, surveillance monitors, HVAC, lighting
systems, fire-fighting systems, CEs, and so on; Public environment monitor mechanism is setup to
ease energy shortage and environment degradation through remote surveillance, operation,
management and maintenance, leaving a secure, comfort and convenient living environment;
Energy, environment and security are taken into consideration to realize reasonable plan and remote
control in community networks.

3.2.4. IPv6 Pilot at BUPT


Network and Information Center at Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT) is
one of the leading research and development institute in the field of IPv6 in China, actively
involved in the research of IPv6 based platform and application development.
IPv6 Based IoT Platform
Currently, the group has built up one 6 LoWPAN based monitoring system, which is already
deployed at the BUPT campus. Moreover, CoAP based platform is developing to support IoT
application development and resource management.
As illustrated in Figure 15, the system is composed of three main parts: wireless sensor network
(WSN) management system, WSN gateway (router) and wireless sensor nodes. The system can be
used for collecting information, sending the alarm information and sharing data to the 3rd party.
Figure 16 shows the software stack of the sensor network.

Since the BUPT IoT platform is a dual-way system both for collecting measurement data and
sending control commands, it is possible to do both remote and wireless monitoring and control in
real time. Figure 17 shows a screen shot of real-time measurement result inside the campus.

Figure 17: Result of measurement


The testbed is implemented based on RESTful architecture approach. The data that is collected by
wireless sensors can be easily shared with a 3rd party with RESTful architecture interface.
Meanwhile, this platform also provides secured mechanism to protect the private data which users
do not share. All the data in the testbed is presented by XML format and JSON format.

IPv4/IPv6 transition testbed
In order to test different transition technologies, BUPT build up a transition technology testbed,
which is shown in Figure 18. The testbed is able to support different tunnel, dual stack and
translation based transition technologies, and it can support various IPv4, IPv6 or dual stack
services. So far, several services are already run in this testbed, including HTTP, Telnet, SSH,
MMS, SMTP, PoP3 and RDP.

Figure 18: Transition Technology Testbed

IPv6 based services


BUPT is actively promoting different traditional services in IPv6. Now WWW, DNS, Email, FTP,
BBS, Video conference, IPTV and some other services are based on IPv4/IPv6. Students can easily
access these services inside and outside campus. In these several years, the IPv6 traffic in BUPT is
the top among all the universities in CERNET2. The most popular IPv6 services are IPTV, BBS
and real time video broadcast.
Figure 19 shows the screenshot of IPTV in BUPT and the hottest BBS in BUPT. After receiving
permission, major CCTV TV channels have been streamed over IPv6. Figure 20 shows the real time
video broadcast of lectures.

3.2.5. IPv6 Pilot at Orange in China


The Beijing labs of Orange have been actively contributing to the IP programme that aims at
defining Oranges global IPv6 strategy and assisting Orange affiliates in enforcing such strategy,
thereby covering both residential and corporate markets, both wired and wireless/mobile
infrastructures.
More precisely, Orange Labs Beijing have developed an expertise in the area of IPv6-based sensor
networking, that yielded the organization a first pilot back in 2011, taking the opportunity of the
ISOC-sponsored IPv6 Day on June 8, 2011 .

D8.2.3 Dissemination Activities


Since then, Orange Labs Beijing has deployed a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) that runs the
Routing for Low Power and Lossy networks (RPL, RFC 6550) dynamic routing protocol in their
premises.
The WSN is used for temperature metering purposes and also serves for the organization of
evaluation campaigns that aim at assessing the performance and the scalability of such RPL
networks under various conditions (Figure 21).

Figure 21: IPv6-Based RPL-Enabled WSN Design for Temperature Metering


These conditions are mostly inferred by the definition and the design of the so-called Objective
Function, which aims at reflecting the routing objectives that should be achieved by the
enforcement of the adequate RPL routing policy (e.g., computation of low latency links or selection
of routes that avoid the use of battery-powered sensors, Figure 22).

3.2.7. IPv6 Green IoT Common Pilot and Testbed


IEEE 1888 is the first standard in IoT led by Chinese companies. It combines green ICT, IPv6, and
smart energy to form a new innovative international standard. Using standard communication, data
collected from every sensor can now be transmitted to storage and application instantaneously.
We have carried out field testing to demonstrate IEEE 1888 advantages in applications in
agriculture by installing numerous sensors to measure temperature and humidity, etc., so that power
consumption can be calculated and that we could have live data on soil analysis as shown in Figures
25 26. With centralized management, these data can be collected and stored in the same place. With
connection to Cloud, we can publish these data on the go, so every party involved can obtain these
data for their specific needs.

The test deployment in agriculture is a good example of future enabled by IPv6 and IoT. It is a
showcase of integration of modern technologies, Big Data, Cloud Computing, IoT, etc. When all of
these technologies are put into applications in agriculture, a better solution can be achieved. The
Future of IoT in application is promising where IEEE 1888 can be the standard to move this
potential to where it is expected.

Creation of the ETSI Industry Specification Group IP6 (IPv6 ISG)

After an evaluation of the IoT6 standardisation efforts from the Y1 and Y2, we have decided to
create a new Industry Specification Group at ETSI called IP6.
Latif Ladid, a 3GPP Board Member since 1999, has been asked by ETSI to convene a first meeting.
Latif had already established back in 2009 the very first ETSI ISG for Autonomics called
Autonomic Future Internet (AFI), which was formed from the FP7 project EFIPSANS and
concluded its work with industry-oriented recommendations.
The first meeting with the ETSI management for the discussion and application of the ETSI ISG
took place on February 18th, 2014. The application was submitted four weeks later and then many
re-iterations occurred. The application was then presented and submitted to the ETSI Board at the
end of June. The board then asked for a more-detailed definition of the precise objectives and tasks
which were resubmitted at the end of July for the next ETSI Board Review meeting at the end of
September 2014. The Boards acceptance will enable the start of the work to begin in October and
we have reassurance that this ISG will go through from our ETSI representative on the IoT6
Advisory Board who has keen interest in seeing this coming through.

The IP6 ISG has the ambition to define some best practices and garner support and create awareness
of the impact of IPv6 on critical infrastructures in the first round and then on hot topics such as IoT,
Cloud Computing, SDN-NFV and 5G which are making an abstraction of IPv6.
The IPv6 Integration Industry Specification Group (IP6 ISG) is a best practice working group
whose focus is on investigation and the study of requirements and use cases identifying thereby,
what and where pre-standardization consensus and harmonization could be reached.
