IPv6-IoT InterOp-Ware Industry Forum

Untitled Untitled2 Untitled3 Untitled4

Session Objective

This session will attract experts from the IPv6 Ready Logo Committee, Consumer Electronics Association and from the new F-InterOp project to discuss and define a new set of online testing tools for the Internet of Things, including for interoperability tests, conformance tests, scalability tests, Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) tests, and Energy efficiency tests.

The IPv6 Ready Logo program plans to introduce a new IPv6 IoT program to test IoT devices depending on defined RFCs in this area.

F-Interop is directly supporting IoT standardization and intends to enable closer cooperation with the industry, through a close collaboration with standards development organizations, including ETSI, oneM2M and W3C,- and be researching and developing online certification and labelling mechanisms. F-Interop will enable an easier participation of researchers and industry in the standardization process.

This effort will try to harmonise and draw a common worldwide interOp-Wareforf IoT networking capabilities and architectural definitions to make sure “Internet of Things” are scalable, inclusive of several communication media, secure, future proof and viable for businesses and end-users.

Each panelist will be asked to research his field to outline the various IoT initiatives and industry showcases and various user requirements, challenges, security and privacy issues and obstacles that could make enrich the discussion in this worldwide IoT session.
