IoT Service Providers
IoT Service Provider Requirements
The predicted large scale growth of IoT devices and their associated IoT device applications will create major challenges for the entire IoT ecosystem.
In IoT scenarios, IoT device firmware and software play a significant part in determining the overall performance and behaviour of the IoT service on the mobile network. With no human intervention to fall back upon, the mechanisms that manage recovery from IoT service failure need to be built into IoT devices.
The GSMA encourages IoT Service Providers to ensure that their IoT services and their IoT device makers conform to the requirements stated within the GSMA connection efficiency guidelines. The IoT Service Provider should reference the GSMA connection efficiency guidelines in the supply contracts they place with their IoT device makers.
IoT service providers are recommended to read the following sections of the guidelines document
