M2M Workshop 2013
The 4th ETSI M2M Workshop will examine major issues facing wide-scale M2M deployment. Machine to Machine communications is the foundation layer for our future world of smart devices, smart appliances, smart homes, smart buildings and smart cities. To unlock the potential offered by M2M, we must understand and address issues related to business models and incentives, technology choices, involvement of different industry sectors, security and data privacy. We must also understand the roles of major actors and their numerous use cases.
M2M – TOWARDS SMART APPLIANCES, DEVICES & BUILDINGS
The workshop will present plans for the ETSI M2M specifications as they evolve towards the work of the oneM2M Partnership Project. It will consider how to address the standardization needs of industries specializing in smart appliances, homes & buildings. M2M brings together various industries, each with its own language and set of semantics: common language and set of semantics are prerequisite to enabling interoperability and exchange of data between devices and applications. Disparate devices and applications will need to be able to make use of the functionalities of underlying transport and access networks.
Security remains of the greatest concern in the development of new business, balanced with the need to protect the privacy & rights of individuals.
The workshop will bring together experts from both public and private sectors to discuss the recent European Commission initiatives, key global M2M implementations, major technological and social challenges, as well the specific needs expressed by the city authorities and the citizens.
The workshop is most relevant to those who have technical management responsibility in domains such as the following:
- M2M application development
- M2M service development
- M2M solution deployment
- M2M solution integration
- M2M testing
- Smart devices/appliances
- Smart buildings
- Smart cities
- Public policies and regulation related to M2M and Internet of Things
- Research on M2M and IoT
Key goals of this workshop
- Gain better understanding of the economics and business models of M2Mrollout & deployment.
- Examine how technology and innovation will enable the smarter appliances, devices, & buildings.
- Identify and discuss M2M technology trends, taking into account major industry initiatives.
- Highlight the related standardization and/or pre-standardization needs, in balance with the need for integration of multiple technologies, for interoperability & regulation.
