The Internet of Things (IoT) architecture is expected to evolve into a horizontal model containing various open systems, integrated environments, and platforms. However, not much research effort has been devoted to developing architectures for horizontal IoT solutions so far. This paper presents an IoT architecture based on Software-Defined Networking (SDN). In this architecture, devices, gateways, and data are open and programmable to IoT application developers and service operators. Moreover, IoT data provision and interoperability are supported at different levels. We present an implementation of the proposed architecture. Our implementation shows that the proposed architecture enables rapid creation of IoT applications by reusing ready applications and data. The measurement and evaluation results demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed architecture.
