The proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT), which connects billions of devices and things, is remarkably transforming the current applications of IoT from standalone, i.e., vertical applications to cross vertical applications or services. Cross vertical applications like the integration of smart grid and smart home can unlock new business models of IoT and can transform IoT business processes. The paper proposes an efficient context management approach in order to provide a service within minimum service delay by employing context sharing approach over cross vertical application of IoT. The performance of the proposed model presents the efficacy of the model.

 
 

The proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) which connects billions of devices and things is remarkably transforming the current applications of IoT from standalone, i.e., vertical applications to cross vertical applications or services. Cross vertical applications like the integration of smart grid and smart home can unlock new business models of IoT and can transform IoT business processes. Consider some simple examples as follows. In a smart city, broad services like traffic management can be delivered by combining different vertical services like parking monitoring, road status, traffic guidance, congestion, etc. The paper uses cross vertical applications as unified services in IoT also. The key issue in the realization of cross-vertical applications is the interoperability between their discrete communication protocols and network infrastructure.
