IoT Experts, Stakeholders Drive Interoperable Standards-based Adoption

Global collaborations to tackle IoT obstacles and advance mass scale deployments

?

Industry-wide collaboration will be the driving force behind a global adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT), according to leading IoT organisations and stakeholders who gathered in Bengaluru, India, at the third oneM2M Industry Day, hosted by Telecommunications Standards Development Society India (TSDSI) in September.

The conference engaged global and Indian organisations in discussions about how a standards-based approach is crucial for interoperability and how such an approach will help to accelerate IoT deployments in India and worldwide. Region-specific hurdles such as modest power availability, diverse digital traffic distribution and ways to overcome them were also highlighted.

“The Indian IoT market is a vibrant one because it has all the ingredients for success, from use cases all the way to policy and government vision,” said Dr. Omar Elloumi, of Nokia, chairman of oneM2M’s Technical Plenary.

“The combined talents and passion of start-ups, larger companies, related industries and research centres make a strong case for a mutually beneficial approach to data economy, where the role of a federating standard such as oneM2M is essential. By sharing initiatives at the Industry Day, we can jointly overcome remaining market inhibitors and pave the way for growth, be it for domestic or international IoT markets.”

India’s IoT market is predicted to grow from USD 1.3 billion in 2016 to USD 9 billion in 2020, according to Deloitte. According to TSDSI’s Director General, Ms. Pamela Kumar, IoT and M2M technologies are key enablers for the national priority missions ‘Digital India’, ‘Smart Cities’, and ‘Smart Villages.’

“Adoption of a standards-driven approach is essential for economies of scale, interoperability and inclusive innovation,” Kumar added.

Participants deliberated on key deployment aspects, including value proposition, device lifecycle management, security privacy, and safety, and testing and certification, among other considerations which are essential for nation-wide deployments.
