Abstract [en]

The Internet of Things (IoT) industry has experienced rapid development nowadays and connecting billions of things into the Internet is already possible. However, there are still some scalability bottlenecks such as costs and power consumption. Moreover, compared with traditional network, the novel IoT network is more information-centric than host-centric. Therefore, we decide to explore feasibility of applying Content Centric Network (CCN) which is an architecture of information-centric networking (ICN) to address these problems.

During recent years, information-centric networking (ICN) is growing popular because it is an effort of network infrastructure evolution from host-centric to information-centric. It has some intrinsic nice features for Internet of Things (IoT). This report will demonstrate them and also present how to implement CCN for wireless sensor network (WSN). The challenges will be presented and the solutions to them will also be demonstrated. After the implementation, there will be some experiments on it and application evaluation of information-centric networking (ICN) to wireless sensor network (WSN) based on a thorough comparison with MQ Telemetry Transport Sensor Network (MQTT-SN).

The result shows that Content Centric Network (CCN) has some advantages over MQ Telemetry Transport (MQTT) in the wireless sensor network (WSN) domain. However, compared with that industry mature solution: MQ Telemetry Transport Sensor Network (MQTT-SN), the Content Centric Network (CCN) is not a perfect alternative for now. More research and implementation work are needed to make it more competitively.

Abstract [sv]

IoT-industrin har upplevt en snabb utveckling på senare år och det beräknas snart vara möjligt att ansluta miljarder saker till Internet. Det finns emellertid fortfarande vissa flaskhalsar när det gäller till exempel kostnader och effektförbrukning. I jämförelse med det traditionella nätverk kan nya IoT-nät beskrivas som mer informationscentrerade än värddatorcentrerade. Därför bestämmer vi oss i detta arbete för att undersöka möjligheten att tillämpa Content Centric Network (CCN) för att addressera utmaningarna i IoT-nät.

Denna rapport presenterar huvudsakligen hur man implementerar CCN för trådlösa sensornätverk (WSN) och utvärderar lösningar, bland annat baserat på en grundlig jämförelse mellan MQTT och MQTT-SN.
