itu and the internet of things
ITU and the Internet of Things
  • Major ITU report in 2005: The Internet of Things
    • Describes the visions underlying the IoT
    • Examines enabling technologies
    • Explores the market potential
    • Contemplates the challenges and wider implications
    • Sets out some of the benefits of IoT for developing countries

internet of things characteristics
Internet of Things: Characteristics

Many different competing definitions, regional approaches - common understanding needed at international level

IoT becomes essential digital infrastructure for countries

Multi operator and service provider business model – not limited to telecom operators

Distributed deployment across industries, supply chains, countries and regions

Needs regulatory policy support for infrastructure and many vertical market applications e.g. security and privacy for eHealth

Charging framework is complex and not well understood

  • JCA-IoT:
    • The Joint Coordination Activity on Internet of Things (JCA-IoT), has been approved by ITU-T TSAG in February 2011.
    • JCA-IoT replaces and continues the work performed by JCA-NID since 2006.
    • Mr. Hyoung Jun Kim (ETRI, Korea) was appointed as the Convener of this activity, reporting progress to TSAG.

Highlight of Current Activities

IoT Joint Coordination Activity (JCA-IoT)

  • Coordinates ITU-T work related to IoT, taking into account the work done in other SDOs
  • Maintains a standards roadmap (list of approved IoT international standards and work in progress)
  • Acts as a single point of contact within ITU-T and performs an external coordination role with other relevant recognized SDOs to avoid duplication of work
  • Next meeting of the JCA-IoT: 28-29 November 2011, Geneva, Switzerland
  • More information at:

  • The Global Standards Initiative on Internet of Things (IoT-GSI) promotes a unified approach in ITU-T for development of technical standards (Recommendations) enabling the Internet of Things on a global scale.
  • ITU-T Recommendations developed under the IoT-GSI by the various ITU-T Questions - in collaboration with other standards developing organizations (SDOs) – will enable worldwide service providers to offer the wide range of services expected by this technology. 
  • IoT-GSI also aims to act as an umbrella for IoT standards development worldwide.

Highlight of Current Activities

IoT Global Standards Initiative (IoT-GSI)

Provides a visible single location for information on and development of IoT standards

Harmonizes different approaches to the IoT architecture worldwide

Participation from: industry, government entities and SDOs (All invited: ETSI M2M, GSC MSTF, ISO/IEC JTC1, TIA, AICTO, ARIB, ATIS, CCSA, GISFI, IEC, IEEE, IETF, ISO, TTA, TTC, IETF etc.)

highlight of current activities2
Highlight of Current Activities
  • Items for the IoT-GSI work plan include:
  • Identification and addressing aspects
  • Functional architecture
  • Service Delivery Platform (SDP) capabilities
  • Requirements and capabilities for IoT use cases/applications (e.g. ITS, eHealth, Smart Metering, Smart Grids, Mobile Payments, Home Networks, Smart City, Connected consumer, etc)
  • Requirements and capabilities for energy saving using smart objects / Charging principles
  • Device management
  • Quality of Service
  • Security and privacy
  • Device and gateway capabilities
  • IoT and Cloud / IoT and Peer2Peer/DSN
  • Conformance and interoperability testing
  • IoT Governance

Highlight of Current Activities

The IoT-GSI is working on a new Recommendation:

IoT-Overview which aims to cover:

  • High level concept (vision)
  • Business and social drivers, ecosystem and business models
  • Essential terminology
  • Scope (applications/services, networks, M2M, devices, security, enabling technologies, etc.)
  • Very High Level Requirements
  • Key features / key areas / key components
  • High level IoT diagrams
  • Taxonomies

Target for approval: 02-2012

strategic direction
Strategic Direction

Attracting vertical industries

ITS: Intelligent Transport System Communications

  • ITU-T Focus Group on Car Communication and
  • ITU-T Focus Group on Driver Distraction

Smart Grid:

  • ITU-T Focus Group


  • Planned workshop on eHealth (in cooperation with WHO) and related technology standards
industry challenges
Industry Challenges

Urgent need to increase engagement and coordination with IoT / M2M stakeholders across the world

  • Telecom SDOs
  • Vertical market SDOs and industry bodies
  • Regulators
  • Academic institutions
  • Regional bodies for providing emerging market requirements

Risk: without proper consultation countries could limit deployment and use of global IoT infrastructure

next steps actions
Next Steps / Actions
  • ITU provides a unique platform to discuss these challenges, foster effective coordination to provide global IoT standards and help get them deployed
  • GSC MSTF has been effective in bringing together several stakeholder communities
  • ITU invites GSC MSTF to join the efforts of the IoT Joint Coordination Activity (JCA) as well as Global Standards Initiative (GSI)
  • ITU encourages additional participation from its membership in the IoT JCA discussions, especially stakeholders who are not traditional SDO members
