The expansion of the IoT and edge computing landscape has brought opportunities but also new challenges. Standards have an essential role in the IoT and edge computing systems. Having a roadmap of IoT standardization can enhance the technical issues that have to be addressed and resolved. The role of standardization in interoperability solutions is key, both by allowing a formalised support to various implementations, and by ensuring a consolidation of the options available so that the interoperability technical landscape is not a jungle of competing solutions. In particular, the value that IoT can provide, will be based on agreements that enables the interoperability of systems across domains, creating a network effect. The agreement represents a standard whether it is a formal or a de-facto standard.

This session focuses on the uptodate IoT and edge computing standardization challenges. The key objectives covered by this session are:

  • What are the key and priority challenges at European and Global levels?

  • What role should lead institutions such as the ITU ISO and the EC to accelerate the implementation of standardization on IoT & Edge Computing?

  • What are the impacts of IoT & Edge Computing standardization in Industry digitization, considering a converged use of ICT and OT technologies?
