Abstract

Although many environments are powered by smart solutions, users do not
have a simple way to gather their collective knowledge and program devices’
behaviour. Telecommunication (Telco) providers wish to act as the facilitator,
but still lack proper components for enabling integrated services over their
networks, even though this work is already in active standardisation. In
this work we present the architecture of a IoT solution developed in close
collaboration with Telco providers, its evolution, which we call SCoT (Smart
Cloud of Things), and the best practices from the several pilots we have been
running. The architecture builds upon ETSI standards, combined with a rich
service execution environment, providing facilitated orchestration of services
and devices, as well as integrated portals for end users access.
