INTERNET OF THINGS ARCHITECTURE BASED CLOUD FOR HEALTHCARE

Abstract

The Internet of Things (IoT) contains smart devices placed in different environments, connectedwith each other across networks and Internet. The integration between Things and Cloud Computing (CC) formonitoring and permanent storage is required for future IoT applications. Therefore, this paper proposes IoTarchitecture based Cloud for healthcare network when patients are remotely monitored by their family andphysicians. This proposed architecture is different from the traditional IoT architecture that consists of Things,getaways, middleware, and application layers which in turn need connectivity insurance between them. Theproposed architecture is designed and configured using Cisco Packet Tracer version 7.0 over two sites: Site 'A'located at smart home and site 'B' located at the smart hospital. The results show that the IoT based Cloudenhances the patient life style by using smart sensors and mobile application, as well as the physicians canremotely monitor the data in real time.
