Standardisation for Internet of Things in IETF (March 2011)

The IAB’s workshop on “Interconnecting Smart Objects with the Internet” was held in Prague on the 25th March 2011, which aimed to explore the experience and approaches taken by researchers and developers of Internet technology when considering the characteristics of constrained devices.  Our team’s position paper was accepted and key experts presented their views for future standardization. A draft report is now available.

In addition, an IoT research workshop was held on the 31st March 2011. In this workshop, several issues including architecture, naming and transport protocols were raised. Our team presented an internet-draft on the problem statement, and had a meeting with the EU IoT Architecture project team for future collaboration.
