The increasing number of connected objects and their growing variety make it necessary to have a system to recommend IoT services for end-users, so that they can make better use of the connected objects at their disposal. In this context, we would like to propose autonomous mechanisms communicating with the recommendation system and aiming to facilitate the management of services and objects. In this article, we deal in particular with the problem of identifying connected objects in a home network. For this, we propose different approaches to solve this problem. The first type of approach is based on network protocols such as discovery protocols. The results show that thanks to the extracted information such as the model of the object, the vendor, the operating system, we manage to identify the type of the object. A second approach is based on traffic analysis using machine learning techniques that will be addressed in future work.

Fair Dynamic Spectrum Management for QRD-Based Precoding with User Encoding Ordering in Downstream G.fast Transmission

In next generation DSL networks such as G.fast, employing discrete multi-tone transmission in high frequencies up to 212 MHz, the crosstalk among lines reaches very high levels. To precompensate the crosstalk in downstream transmission, QRD-based precoding has been proposed as a near-optimal dynamic spectrum management (DSM) technique. However, the performance ...

Practical Mitigation of Passive Intermodulation in Microstrip Circuits

This paper presents new experimental evidence and a novel practical approach for mitigation of passive intermodulation (PIM) in microstrip circuits fabricated on commercial printed circuit board laminates. The mechanisms of distributed PIM in microstrip circuits are reviewed and a phenomenology of PIM generation due to locally enhanced electromagnetic fields at ...

Efficient Cooperative HARQ for Multi-Source Multi-Relay Wireless Networks

In this paper, we compare the performance of three different cooperative Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) protocols for slow-fading half-duplex orthogonal multiple access multiple relay channel. Channel State Information (CSI) is available at the receiving side of each link only. Time Division Multiplexing is assumed, where each orthogonal transmission occurs ...
