Abstract: Internet of Things enables seamless interaction between connected devices. The growing popularity of IoT will increase the number of sensors and devices to be connected with Internet enormously, resulting in generation of Trillions of GBs of data. Most of the IoT devices have very less storage capacity and hence data generated are to be transmitted to IoT node head which takes care of processing. Data generated from ECG devices, Video surveillance systems are very large requiring a physical medium with high bandwidth for the connection between device and IoT node head. Further the objects plugged into Internet are most of the times powered by batteries requiring low power communication. Visible Light Communication (VLC) is one such technology that provides wide bandwidth up to 10Gbps with energy efficiency and thus it can be a potential solution for the above problem. In this paper we propose NS3 based IoT implementation using existing IoT protocol stack with Visible Light Communication as the physical medium considering error model. We achieve a throughput of 416 Mbps which is a significant improvement over Wireless Fidelity based IoT implementation which has a throughput of 91.2 Mbps under the same condition.
Keywords: Internet of Things, NS3 Network Simulator, Visible Light Communication, WiFi.
