Abstract. Internet of Things (IoT) networks are being continually developed in several domains, however no systematic processes for their modeling and simulation exist so far. In this paper, an agent-oriented approach to IoT networks modeling is proposed by exploiting the ACOSO model. Then, agent-modelled IoT networks of different scales are simulated through the Omnet++ simulation platform, with the goal of analyzing issues and bottlenecks at communication level.
