Special Issue on Industrial IoT networks to support future Cloud-to-Things applications

– Ad Hoc Networks, Elsevier –

The Cloud-to-Things (C2T) continuum is a novel paradigm that extends the cloud-computing centralized architecture by introducing intermediate computing layers to host industrial applications and services with stringent requirements in terms of latency and reliability in the communication with IoT devices and sensors.

Recent network architectures that support the integration of IoT devices into existing networks, like 6TiSCH or 5G/6G, include by design support for strict Quality of Service (QoS) communication requirements to ensure timed and reliable data delivery between applications and IoT devices.

The deployment and management of the C2T multi-tier computing infrastructure connected with industrial IoT via heterogeneous communication technologies on a large-scale will require innovative approaches to guarantee QoS application requirements by enabling the convergence between computing and networking. Current networking management approaches are not adequate to support this convergence, thus leading to research open issues in multiple areas, including, for instance, IoT networks performance optimization, efficient resource management, scalable device management, novel compute-network joint management strategies, etc.

In this special issue, we look for original and high-quality research works in these areas to enable the convergence between networking and computing in the C2T continuum for industrial applications. The topics relevant to this special issue include but are not limited to:

*Network resource allocation and management in Industrial IoT networks
*Integration between cloud-edge infrastructure and 5G/6G networks for the Industrial IoT
*Network continuity to support efficient offloading to optimize network performance
*Network strict-QoS for Industrial applications in the C2T continuum
*Joint network configuration and workload distribution in the C2T continuum
*Security issues and solutions for industrial systems in the C2T continuum
*Ad-Hoc Networks for industrial applications to support mobility
*Vehicular networks for cooperative autonomous vehicles
*Self-organizing networks in the C2T continuum
*Scalable management solutions in the C2T continuum
*Novel network paradigms to support the C2T continuum with QoS guarantees
