Eco-friendly systems are necessitated nowadays, as the global consumption is increasing. A data-driven aspect is prominent, involving the Internet of Things (IoT) as the main enabler of a Circular Economy (CE). Henceforth, IoT equipment records the system’s functionality, with machine learning (ML) optimizing green computing operations. Electronics 2021, 10, 2008.

The Role of Intent-Based Networking in ICT Supply Chains

  • Mounir Bensalem, Jasenka Dizdarević, Francisco Carpio, Admela Jukan
The evolution towards Industry 4.0 is driving the need for innovative solutions in the area of network management, considering the complex, dynamic and heterogeneous nature of ICT supply chains. To this end, Intent-Based networking (IBN) which is already proven to evolve how network management is driven today, can be implemented as a solution to facilitate the management of large ICT supply chains. 2021 IEEE 22nd International Conference on High Performance Switching and Routing (HPSR)

Scalability analysis of a blockchain-based security strategy for complex IoT systems

  • Martí Miquel Martínez , Eva Marín Tordera, Xavi Masip Bruin
Supply chains constitute a type of IoT system that is becoming increasingly complex today. Providing supply chains with cybersecurity guarantees is becoming a highly topic in current research. This interest is mainly rooted on the fact that supply chains may include different vulnerable components, such as those residing in factories, distribution centres, logistics, or transportation, just to name a few. 2021 IEEE 22nd International Conference on High Performance Switching and Routing (HPSR)
