INTERNET OF THINGS (IoT)
IoT is a subcommittee of the Emerging Technologies Committee led by Andrea Goldsmith:
The objective of this subcommittee is to facilitate a global definition of IOT architecture and governance; investigate the sensitive security and privacy issues; and explore the different technology scenarios and impacts when enabling Internet protocols over the emerging generations of IoT devices and networks in order to reach harmonization and end to end transparency through IPv6 (For this purpose, this TC will be supported by IPv6 Forumwww.ipv6forum.org).
This subcommittee will pursue a global collaboration with IEEE ComSoc and non- IEEE organizations from academia and industry. For this purpose, current members from the TPCs in the GLOBECOM 2013 IoT Symposium track will be invited as well as members from industrial alliances such as IPSO Alliance, Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) and standardization groups such as ETSI M2M, oneM2M and IETF. The worldwide research community such as the European IERC community will be invited (http://www.internet-of-things-research.eu/ ). This multi-discipline of the members from this TC will promote a common understanding to enable harmonization and convergence on governance, integration and security of the Internet of Things.
