This follow-up project to SmartONE investigates the possibilities of achieving a more integral systemic framework for the previously established lines of research. This concerns the Internet of Things and the developments that place very high demands on fixed, wireless and the increasingly optical networks to transport substantial amounts of data efficiently and reliably. Developments in the field of IT make it possible for more and more devices to be connected to each other. In the future many billions of devices are likely to be connected via the internet and go way beyond the familiar smartphone apps that regulate your thermostat or home lighting system.
