Abstract

This work proposes extensions to Wubby (a device-level software platform for IoT devices, a technology developed by Econais A.E.) to support wireless modules for mobile networks (4 G / LTE-A, and also supporting the forthcoming 5 G). The proposed extension leverages the use of such modules, as it allows easy programming and existing code re-use. It thus adds a compatibility layer across the different modules as it a common set of classes for the wireless modules. The system can be used to support the networking aspects of a variety of IoT applications, including applications for Smart Cities, using a variety of IoT devices. This work suggests such a case focusing on air quality monitoring.
