Objectives :

Internet of Things (IoT) technology makes much impact on our society, and many APAN members have been conducting academic research, system and service development, demonstrations, and real-world deployment of IoT technology. In this session, we will have several presentations from APAN members sharing their IoT-related experiences and discussion with the audience.

Session Chair :  
  Eiji Kawai , NICT 

Agenda :

1. [keynote] NerveNet: A Distributed Network and Edge Computing Platform for Regional Information Sharing - Yasunori Owada , NICT , Japan

"NerveNet" is a distributed network and application platform developed by the NICT, which is aimed to achieve local information production and local information consumption in a regional area by using distributed network and edge computing nodes. It is possible to construct a layer 2 mesh structure network using Ethernet, and there is a function to autonomously construct multiple VLAN paths over the mesh topology to be able to automatically switch to the detour VLAN path in case of the link/node failure happened. In addition, it provides distributed application platform as a local cloud with a use of distributed information synchronization function operated by a distributed database system on the network node with using limited resources on the node such as computation, memory, and storage. This platform makes it possible to realize local communication and information sharing without depending on the cloud system on the Internet and realize a resilience of the network connectivity and the application service availability. This allows users to use the network and application services locally, independent of the internet or a cloud. In other words, even if a connectivity to a wide area network or the internet is not available in case of a large-scale disaster, the network and application service still available only by the remaining network nodes that are alive locally. Since all the functions of the latest NerveNet are packed into software, running on Linux PC including Raspberry Pi, it is easy to extend the scale.
In this presentation explains the architecture and functional details of NerveNet system and introduces some use cases in Japan and other countries.

2. The Wireless IoT Network in KREONET for Science IoT Service  - Joobum Kim , KISTI, Korea

The rapid growth of IoT makes it possible the new service in public and private areas. Especially, KREONET has launched the wireless IoT network based on LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) for IoT science applications. In 2018, KREONET deployed ScienceLoRa network in six sites for monitoring environmental radiation. This year KREONET plans to extend ScienceLoRa network for science and education in Korea. In this presentation, I would like to report the current status of ScienceLoRa and future plans.
