IoT Researchers Propose Lag-Free Networking Solution

As more Internet of Things (IoT) devices enter into the workplace, networks may become congested and lead to lagging connections. This may cause critical failures if the data is not sent over quickly, which could lead to delays and accidents.To reduce that risk, researchers at the University of Pittsburgh have proposed a system that would give IoT devices a side channel to avoid heavy traffic slowdowns. In a paper titled “EasyPass: Combating IoT Delay with Multiple Access Wireless Side Channels”, the team shows IoT devices deferred from a business’s main network to an exclusive channel. This channel is only utilized at times when traffic is high, reducing networking costs. The network’s automatic response to channel quality, or the signal-to-noise ratio, is almost always a step or two behind,” said Wei Gao, associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Michigan.
