Future Smart Cities will be enabled by a pervasive fabric of sensors and actuators, seamlessly integrated within information systems. This large-scale Internet of Things (IoT) will bring a new level of challenges to existing communication networks and wireless standards. In order to analyze these issues and study possible solutions, a quick and rapid experimentation is of paramount importance to ensure that IoT protocols and network architectures can handle such challenges. In this paper, we present the ECOAP project that aims at evaluating the performance of the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP), the application protocol defined to interconnect IoT devices with information systems. The project will carry out an evaluation of CoAP through the WiSHFUL platform, a platform for large-scale experimentation of network systems. The project will focus on assessing different congestion control strategies in order to evaluate the scalability of the protocol in future large-scale scenarios.
