A REVIEW OF MULTI HOMING AND ITS ASSOCIATED RESEARCH AREAS ALONG WITH INTERNET OF THINGS (IOT)

Krishnaraj Natarajan, S. Smys


Abstract

With the ever increasing research in communication technology, smart systems and gadgets are emerging at a very fast pace. A recent trend is the research in internet of things (IoT) which facilitates access of information and services at any point of time around the globe thus elevating the process of digitization to a new era. Multi homing is a concept which facilitates connection of a user over multiple networks. These networks may be heterogeneous or homogeneous. This concept of multihoming acts as a strong backbone to wireless sensor networks where routing of information over the links and channels is quite a critical process. The routing of information from source to destination defines the overall accuracy of the entire wireless network. This efficiency largely dictated by an efficient routing process is influenced by many factors which include node efficiency, node lifetime, and the characteristics of the link between the nodes.
