  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

         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

                               ITU IoT GSI
    • 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.
