The Internet of Things Programme

Our vision: To enable a world in which consumers and businesses enjoy rich new services, connected by intelligent and secure mobile networks.

Our aim: The GSMA’s Internet of Things Programme is an industry initiative designed to help mobile operators accelerate the delivery of compelling and secure IoT solutions that harness big data to deliver value to individuals and enterprises alike. By developing key enablers, facilitating industry collaboration and supporting network optimisation, the Internet of Things Programme is enabling consumers and businesses to harness a host of rich new services, connected by intelligent and secure mobile networks.

 

Mobile IoT

 

cl_miot_blackThe GSMA is working with mobile operators and the wider ecosystem to raise market awareness and support of commercial licensed spectrum low power wide area solutions.

 

IoT Security

 

cl_security_blackThe GSMA has delivered a set of IoT Security Guidelines, backed by an IoT Security Assessment scheme, to provide a proven and robust approach to end-to-end security. The GSMA is now working with mobile operators and the wider industry to further accelerate the adoption of the guidelines and the assessment.

IoT Big Data

 

cl_big_data_blackThe GSMA is working with the mobile industry to make harmonised data sets available to developers and third parties through common application programme interfaces (APIs). By working with mobile operators on common enablers, the GSMA is also helping to remove commercial and technical barriers to create value from the IoT big data opportunity.

 

IoT Policy and Regulation

 

cl_policy_regs_blackThe accelerating growth of the Internet of Things is transforming economies and societies. The GSMA is working to create a sustainable policy and regulatory environment to support the successful scaling of the IoT.

 

Industry Engagement:

The GSMA works closely with its partners in the industry to align its strategy and to ensure its initiatives are adopted. By determining common capabilities, we will make a positive impact on the industry creating solid foundations for the Internet of Things.


cl_smart_cities_blackThe GSMA is helping mobile operators and cities work together to create sustainable, long-term benefits for businesses and citizens through IoT technologies.

 

 

cl_automotive_blackThe GSMA is working with mobile operators, automotive OEMs and suppliers, relevant industry associations, and regulatory bodies to accelerate the growth of the Connected Vehicle market by agreeing a common approach to security, regulatory and network connectivity solutions.

 

 

cl_drone_blackDrones can be utilised to enhance smart city services such as safety, improved traffic flow, improved delivery services and crowd control measures. Mobile networks can be used to securely identify a drone and its location in order to help ensure the safety of commercial drones and to help mitigate privacy, safety and security risks.
