Simulation plays an important role on studing the Internet of Things (IoT) traffic, which has an increasing impact on network infrastructures.The existing simulation tools and mechanisms on IoT mainly focus on simulating large-scale deployment of IoT and heterogeneous IoT applications. This paper concentrates on how to simulate the lengthy, burthty and multi-level time-scale IoT applications quickly. A time-scale data generation (TSDG) method is proposed to reduce the used simulation time of different IoT scenarios while keeping the real world characteristics of the IoT applications. Implementations of TSDG in ns-3 and simulation experiments of smart home and smart shopping centre are described in the paper. The evaluations results show that the proposed TSDG method can effectively reduce the time used to simulation IoT applications in ns-3 while reflect the IoT application traffic in the real world.
