Special Issue on Industrial IoT networks to support future 
Cloud-to-Things applications

– Ad Hoc Networks, Elsevier –

The Cloud-to-Things (C2T) continuum is a novel paradigm that extends the 
cloud-computing centralized architecture by introducing intermediate 
computing layers to host industrial applications and services with 
stringent requirements in terms of latency and reliability in the 
communication with IoT devices and sensors.

Recent network architectures that support the integration of IoT devices 
into existing networks, like 6TiSCH or 5G/6G, include by design support 
for strict Quality of Service (QoS) communication requirements to ensure 
timed and reliable data delivery between applications and IoT devices.

The deployment and management of the C2T multi-tier computing 
infrastructure connected with industrial IoT via heterogeneous 
communication technologies on a large-scale will require innovative 
approaches to guarantee QoS application requirements by enabling the 
convergence between computing and networking. Current networking 
management approaches are not adequate to support this convergence, thus 
leading to research open issues in multiple areas, including, for 
instance, IoT networks performance optimization, efficient resource 
management, scalable device management, novel compute-network joint 
management strategies, etc.

In this special issue, we look for original and high-quality research 
works in these areas to enable the convergence between networking and 
computing in the C2T continuum for industrial applications. The topics 
relevant to this special issue include but are not limited to:

*Network resource allocation and management in Industrial IoT networks
*Integration between cloud-edge infrastructure and 5G/6G networks for 
the Industrial IoT
*Network continuity to support efficient offloading to optimize network 
*Network strict-QoS for Industrial applications in the C2T continuum
*Joint network configuration and workload distribution in the C2T continuum
*Security issues and solutions for industrial systems in the C2T continuum
*Ad-Hoc Networks for industrial applications to support mobility
*Vehicular networks for cooperative autonomous vehicles
*Self-organizing networks in the C2T continuum
*Scalable management solutions in the C2T continuum
*Novel network paradigms to support the C2T continuum with QoS guarantees
