In the emerging paradigm of pervasive computing, applications change their behaviors in response to their environmental context, which is provided by the smart objects in the Internet of Things (IoT). Due to the inherent heterogeneity of physical world objects, realizing the IoT requires service layers to fill the gap between the low level interfaces of networked objects and the applications which use them. In this paper, we show that the MobilityFirst Future Internet Architecture is an ideal platform for realizing pervasive computing in an IoT framework. In particular, MobilityFirst's identity based routing, overloaded identities, content caching and in-network compute plane are excellent building blocks for IoT applications. We then present a detailed example of a location based service built using MobilityFirst.
