SLA Specification for IoT Operation - The WSN-SLA Framework

Abstract : In this specification, we provide a guideline to write Service Level Agreements (SLAs) For the Internet Of Things (IoT) Operation. Current growth in the field of connected devices open the door to Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) Operators that share their operated transmission infrastructure among several clients. Each client company has specific application needs for the transmission of messages between their devices and their Information System. Some require bounded delays, others want minimal loss rate. The WSN Operator must fulfill these Quality of Service (QoS) requirements, as specified in a contract, the SLA. In the Web Services domain, SLAs have been studied for long, and a specification was given, in XML format, in the WSLA framework. We extend the specification with specific items that integrate the WSN constraints into the SLA framework. We give the possibility to address specific sets of sensors with a given QoS. We facilitate the construction of complex metrics that express the performance of the WSN. Our solution gives useful information for direct implementation in the field.
