Future Internet of Things Networks: IoT Security & Connection Efficiency

What does the future hold for IoT networks?

The GSMA is working to establish common capabilities among mobile operators to enable communication networks that support value creation for all stakeholders.

These capabilities include security, connection efficiency, billing, charging and device management, all of which can enhance the Internet of Things by enabling the development of new services. Through the provision of these value added services, operators can move beyond connectivity and act as a trusted partner for their customers and business partners by offering high quality service management, responsive customer service, end to end security and big data solutions. Operator capabilities need to be tailored for emergent IoT business models, building a trusted infrastructure that all stakeholders can rely on – and profit from.

How can IoT solutions communicate safely and intelligently via the mobile network?

The Internet of Things is dependent on the efficient and intelligent use of secure mobile networks.

The GSMA has delivered a set of security guidelines to promote best practice for the secure design, development and deployment of IoT services. A secure IoT market will create trusted, reliable services that can scale as the market grows. The GSMA IoT Security Guidelines provide a step by step process to securely launch IoT solutions to market and keep them secure through their lifecycles.

The GSMA has worked with its industry partners to establish the GSMA IoT Device Connection Efficiency Guidelines to ensure that IoT device and application developers can follow a common approach to create efficient, trusted and reliable IoT services that can scale as the market grows.
