CALL FOR PAPERS
5G Radio Access Technologies (RAT) systems shall integrate three different components, namely, extreme mobile broadband capacity (eMBB), a massive amount of machines communicating (mMTC) and ultra-reliable communication (URC) capabilities. Internet-of-Things (IoT) specially refers to the last two pillars of the 5G concepts, in the sense that connectivity solutions will be conceived for tens of billions of network-enabled devices having diverse requirements. Beyond the current hype, IoT will undoubtedly affect all sectors of the economy such as automotive, construction, energy or manufacturing, wherein communication is a prerequisite to reach the “fourth industrial revolution”. The reaction from standardization bodies has been immediate, producing a number of new standards in the last few years (EC-GSM, eMTC, NB-IoT, LTE-V, LoRa…).
In addition to the network communications related standards, various IoT protocol and platform (3GPP, IEEE, IETF, oneM2M, etc.) standards have been developed to address requirements for device management and secure data exchange between devices and applications. As the deployments pace accelerates to cover a wider scope of use cases, the industry will be looking for new waves of standards addressing emerging requirements such as cross industry domain communications and semantic interoperability.
This Series Topic seeks articles on recent developments and future directions for IoT standards. Papers describing original work are solicited. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Enabling standardized technologies and platforms for IoT for instance 5G networks, IoT Protocols (IPv6, 6LoWPAN, NB-IoT, CoAP, MQTT, DDS, OPC-UA, etc.), Vehicle-to-anything communications
- IoT standards related solutions to a specific sector of the economy e.g. Smart cities, e-Health, Automotive, Transport, Utilities, Consumer electronics and Manufacturing
- Enabling Standards for IoT e.g. 3GPP, oneM2M, IEEE, W3C, IETF, IIC, AIOTI, etc
- Field trials/demonstration of large-scale IoT standard based deployments
