Management of Low Powered Personal Area Networks Using Compression in SNMPv3
The internet of things (IoT) is being used more and more in our lives and this area attracts interest in studying new methods. One of these methods is mesh networking technique, which is increasingly becoming more popular and is suitable for use in places where wired connectivity is unavailable. Researchers are mostly focused on developing new and efficient services for systems running on this method, but the management of devices on mesh networks remains as an important issue. The management of an increasing number of devices can become inexhaustible. IoT management is to monitor and take action on the communication from and between connected devices and also control the devices from a remote server. This is similar to traditional network management when mesh network devices are considered. There is also a critical precaution for objects which is to complete administrative operations securely. In this article we have adapted a protocol, that is mainly used in traditional network management, for using in the management low powered personal area network (LoWPAN). We made some experimental analysis and compared our approach with other well-known IoT protocols for device management perspective. © 2018 IEEE.
