Abstract:

In this paper, we introduce a new networking architecture called Group Centric Networking GCN that is designed to support the large number of devices expected with the emergence of the Internet of Things. GCN is designed to enable these devices to operate collaboratively in a highly efficient and resilient fashion, while not sacrificing the users ability to communicate with one another. We do a full protocol implementation of GCN in NS3, and verify GCN in emulation and on real hardware communicating over an RF channel. We show that GCN utilizes up to an order of magnitude fewer network resources than traditional wireless routing schemes, while providing superior connectivity and reliability.
