The present spreading out of the Internet of Things (IoT) originated the realization of millions of IoT devices connected to the
Internet. With the increase of allied devices, the gigantic multimedia big data (MMBD) vision is also gaining eminence and has
been broadly acknowledged. MMBD management offers computation, exploration, storage, and control to resolve the QoS
issues for multimedia data communications. However, it becomes challenging for multimedia systems to tackle the diverse
multimedia-enabled IoT settings including healthcare, traffic videos, automation, society parking images, and surveillance that
produce a massive amount of big multimedia data to be processed and analyzed efficiently. There are several challenges in the
existing structural design of the IoT-enabled data management systems to handle MMBD including high-volume storage and
processing of data, data heterogeneity due to various multimedia sources, and intelligent decision-making. In this article, an
architecture is proposed to process and store MMBD efficiently in an IoT-enabled environment. The proposed architecture is a
layered architecture integrated with a parallel and distributed module to accomplish big data analytics for multimedia data. A
preprocessing module is also integrated with the proposed architecture to prepare the MMBD and speed up the processing
mechanism. The proposed system is realized and experimentally tested using real-time multimedia big data sets from athentic
sources that discloses the effectiveness of the proposed architecture.
