Three new standards for the Internet of Things
The IoT is a simple concept: by connecting objects to the internet, we can unite the power and possibilities of the virtual and the built world. Combining two aspects of life that usually operate in isolation presents huge opportunities for more efficient use of resources in industrial applications, while consumers are meanwhile starting to enjoy the possibility of a home that interacts with them.
The reality of connecting hundreds of millions of people, devices and services is of course highly complex. Now, the experts who create standards for the Internet of Things and related technologies have published three new standards to help realise the potential of the IoT:
- ISO/IEC 21823-2 specifies a framework and requirements for transport interoperability, in order to enable the construction of IoT systems with information exchange, peer-to-peer connectivity and seamless communication both between different IoT systems and also among entities within an IoT system.
- ISO/IEC TR 30164 describes the common concepts, terminologies, characteristics, use cases and technologies (including data management, coordination, processing, network functionality, heterogeneous computing, security, hardware/software optimisation) of edge computing for IoT systems applications. Edge computing is a branch of technology that underpins remote computing and storage services, such as the cloud.
ISO/IEC TR 30166 applies to general Industrial IoT (IIoT) systems and landscapes, outlining characteristics, technical aspects and functional as well as non-functional elements of the IIoT structure and a listing of standardising organisations, consortia and open-source communities with work on all aspects of IIoT.
