FACTO: A Multi-Purpose Wi-Fi Network for a Low-Consumption Smart Home – FACTO

Submission summary

The number of smart homes is rapidly expanding worldwide with an increasing amount of wireless IT devices. The diversity of these devices is accompanied by the development of multiple wireless protocols and technologies that aim to connect them. However, these technologies offer overlapping capabilities. This overprovisioning is highly suboptimal from an energy point of view and can be viewed as a first barrier towards sustainable smart homes. Therefore, in the FACTO project, we propose to design a multi-purpose network based on a single optimized technology (namely IEEE 802.11be, the future Wi-Fi 7), in order to offer an energy-efficient, adaptable and integrated connectivity to all smart home's devices.
