  1. The Internet of Things serving the world of things ITU-T, 2011-08-23 Gabriel Barta IEC Head of technical coordination Secretary, IEC MSB, CAB

  2. Internet in International Standards • ITU-T Recommendations • ISO/IEC nnnnn-m standards • Developed and/or adopted under the umbrella of ISO/IEC JTC 1 and its subcommittees • Many with text identical to an ITU-T Recommendation • Many applications in different industrial areas • Examples from the IEC (IEC 6nnnn standards): • TC 57, Power systems management and associated information exchange: communications for utilities • TC 65, Industrial-process [control &] automation: communications for automated factories

  3. Where does the IEC add value (since 1906)? • In practical industrial situations • As well as commercial and domestic • Safety and electromag.compatibility (EMC) • But also ... IEC standards reduce costs: • By common characteristics • By specifying infrastructure • By guaranteeing interoperability • Mainly using product standards (incl. sys.)

  4. What is a product? thing • It is a box, a • So the IEC has always standardized things • It has already been standardizing the IoT • Since it began involvement with the Internet • So is there a contradiction, an overlap? • No, there are two complementary views: • How to communicate • What is communicating

  5. Implications for standardizing the IoT, I • A comm. protocol is a beautiful thing • Experts develop and perfect it • They then make it available for users • Sounds good, but is “thrown over the wall” • We need the IoT because the things need it • Throwing it over the wall won’t work • So develop IoT in constant consideration of the things themselves, the actual boxes

  6. Implications for standardizing the IoT, II • Examples: • NID: must consider existing ID schemes • “Sensor” networks: if modern devices no longer clearly separate sensors from actuators, the IoT must not be rigid either • We are no longer living in a world where applications come afterwards • Compare the world of mobile apps & survival • Involve the things up front in the IoT
