transforMinG to a stanDarDiseD systeM The core infrastructure elements of smart cities cover several domains such as traffic, adequate and clean water supply, assured electricity supply, robust IT connectivity, affordable housing, efficient transport, safety of citizens, health, education, etc. For a city to operate smartly, there must be a seamless exchange of data between these different domains so that services can be provided efficiently. For there to be interoperability between different domains, standards such as oneM2M are critical. oneM2M’s horizontal platform is designed to

provide a service layer between applications across different verticals and the underlying connectivity networks, supporting end-to-end encryption of data in a secure and controlled manner. The oneM2M standard provides the tools to ensure interoperability across multiple devices on the same platform, which will ultimately improve security by authentication of each application or device. With that in mind, the Living Lab

implementation will be based on the oneM2M platform, which has been transposed by TSDSI (India’s telecommunication standards body) and adopted by Telecom Engineering Center (TEC), India as a national standard for interoperability.

and projects related to e-governance, mobility, integrated traffic management and waste management. Bringing a new wave of digitalised operation, also brings a wave of challenges in regard to the cost and logistics surrounding implementation.

the city of toMorrow The IIIT-H has set up the Smart City Research Centre (SCRC) with support from the Indian government’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) and its Smart City Mission. The SCRC will include a Living Lab, a testbed to showcase new ideas and approaches using technologies such as IoT, and a place to co-create smart city innovations with start-ups. Through the Living Lab, IIIT-H plans to transform the campus into a platform for learning, experimentation and for showcasing new ideas and approaches.

a sMarter future, toGether With the impact of IoT already far-reaching, the technology’s full potential is yet to be fully realised. As city authorities look to monetize on the growing IoT market, they all share a common goal - which is to identify as many cost savings as they can on their smart city journey. A digital environment across India will not

only leverage the smart city concept, but it will pave the way for new features, new ways to manage, govern and live in the city of tomorrow. By using oneM2M and its horizontal platform, cities will not be locked into proprietary ecosystems that limit technology choices and increase costs over time. They will be able to mix and match solutions from multiple vendors according to their specific needs as they arise.


IndustrIal Iot connectIons to reach 37 bIllIon globally by 2025

increase from 17.7 billion in 2020 to 36.8 billion in 2025; representing an overall growth rate of 207 per cent. The research identified smart manufacturing as a key growth sector of the Industrial IoT market over the next five years; accounting for 22 billion connections by 2025. The new research, Industrial IoT: Future


Market Outlook, Technology Analysis & Key Players 2020-2025, predicted that 5G and LPWA (Low Power Wide Area) networks will play pivotal roles in creating attractive service offerings to the manufacturing industry, and enabling the realisation of the ‘smart factory’ concept, in which real-time data transmission and high connection densities allow highly-autonomous operations for manufacturers.

5G to MaxiMise Benefits of sMart factories The report identified private 5G services as crucial to maximising the value of a smart factory to service users, by leveraging the technology to enable superior levels of autonomy amongst operations. It found that private 5G networks will prove most valuable when used for the transmission of large amounts of data in environments with a high density of connections, and where significant levels of data are generated. In turn, this will enable large-scale manufacturers to reduce operational spend through efficiency gains.

software revenue to DoMinate inDustrial iot Market value The research forecasts that over 80 per cent of global Industrial IoT market value will be attributable to software spend by 2025; reaching $216 billion. Software tools leveraging machine learning for enhanced data analysis and the identification of network vulnerabilities are now essential to connected manufacturing operations. Research author Scarlett Woodford

notes: “Manufacturers must exercise caution when implementing IoT technology; resisting the temptation to introduce connectivity to all aspects of operations. Instead, manufacturers must focus on the collection of data on the most valuable areas to drive efficiency gains.”
