Abstract

This paper investigates the possibility of virtualizing and distributing the functionality that runs on top of residential wireless communications. Specifically, we propose, describe and test a solution that transports USB communications to remote locations, for scenarios in which the in-home wireless interfaces are consumed at the server side through this type of general-purpose and widely used interfaces. We frame this study in a general architecture by which Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) bring economies of scale, flexibility and programmability to residential Internet of Things (IoT) environments. As a result of our tests, we prove the feasibility of the remote presence of the IoT systems through the Universal Serial Bus (USB) tunnels, and we obtain approximate bandwidth measurements that serve as a hint on the type of services that can be offloaded to the cloud. For those functionalities that would need more bandwidth, we propose to embed a lightweight virtualization environment in home and to execute in it part of the virtualized components, something that is in line with the recent fog computing approaches.
