The ETSI IoT Workshop, taking place in ETSI premises (Sophia Antipolis, FR), will start on 22 October and end on 25 October. The workshop attendees will have the opportunity to visit the IoT Standard Showcases during the coffee and lunch breaks on 22–24 October.

The event will include an essential update on the major IoT standardization, such as those ongoing in ETSI, oneM2M, SmartM2M and 3GPP.

An essential element of deploying IoT services is the choice and the availability of IoT communication technologies such as those developed by the 3GPP partnership project (NB-IoT, LTE- M). Selecting the right IoT connectivity technologies, that are optimized for multiple IoT solutions and work at scale, is essential to ensuring futureproof and sustainable IoT deployments.

Interoperability and interworking remain key factors for a successful development of IoT. This is particularly true when it comes to ensuring the security and semantic interoperability. The standards being developed in ETSI, oneM2M and 3GPP, act as the essential “glue" between the various technologies that are present in the complex IoT ecosystem.

The workshop will cover:

  • IoT connectivity: 5G, NB-IoT, and more - which technology for which application,
  • IoT for industry and manufacturing: How IoT is used to support manufacturing, production, maintenance, monitoring and distribution, and the new business models,
  • IoT security and privacy: Exploring the specific Security and Privacy challenges for IoT,
  • IoT semantic and ontology-based interoperability: Explaining the importance of SAREF (Smart Applications REFerence ontology), the European lead solution for intra and inter sector semantic data interoperability,
  • AI and big data in the IoT standards,
  • Mobile Edge Computing in the context of IoT services,
  • and more: smart energy, smart home, buildings and environment, smart cities and communities, water management, cooperative and connected mobility, asset monitoring and management, logistics and supply chain, smart agriculture, wearables/body area networks, e-health/ageing well.

The IoT Standard Showcases will enable attendees to see and interact with real-life implementations of standard based technologies for oneM2M standard and SAREF, communication networks (e.g. 3GPP cellular 5G) applied to IoT services.
