Abstract

In the beginning, Internet and TCP/IP protocols were based on the idea of connecting computers, so the address- able entities were networking adapters. Due to the evolution of networking and Internet services, physical computers no longer have a central role. Addressing networking adapters as if they were the true ends of communication has become obsolete. Within Internet of Threads, processes can be autonomous nodes of the Internet, i.e., can have their own IP addresses, routing and QoS policies, etc. In other words, the Internet of Threads definition enables networked software appliances to be implemented. These appliances are processes able to autonomously interoperate on the network, i.e., the software counterpart of the Internet of Things’ objects. This paper will examine some usage cases of Internet of Threads, discussing the specific improvements provided by the new networking support. The implementation of the Internet of Threads used in the experiments is based on Virtual Distributed Ethernet (VDE), Contiki and View-OS. All the software presented in this paper has been released under free software licenses and is available for independent testing and evaluation.
