In a future internet of things, an increasing number of every-day objects will be connected with each other. These objects can be very diverse in terms of their network protocols and communication technologies. As more resource constrained devices such as sensor networks and PDAs are added to our environment, supporting efficient communication between these heterogeneous devices becomes a key challenge in next-generation networks. To realize this challenge, this paper presents a reconfigurable network framework (IDRA) that supports direct connectivity between heterogeneous co-located devices, without the need for complex translation gateways.
