More than 190 ITU-T member countries have approved oneM2M specifications as ITU standard, simplifying the IoT ecosystem lifecycle by minimizing development, deployment, and maintenance costs.
The ITU-T's SG20 Internet of Things (IoT) and smart cities and communities (SC&C) approved oneM2M’s security specifications for IoT systems as part of the ITU-T Y.4500.3 series, making the entire suite of oneM2M specifications available for use nationally by ITU -T member states.Find out more

In the fast-paced world of IoT technology, staying ahead of the game is essential for businesses. Yet, with changing legislation, technical risks, and commercial pressures, the potential pitfalls are many.
Over the past two decades, I have seen countless attempts by individuals to connect their IoT devices using a multitude of wireless technologies. However, these efforts were often driven by the technology available rather than the business case. Yet, while it was undoubtedly exciting to see their devices successfully communicate, it was challenging for those businesses to extract the essential, business-enhancing data needed to improve company performance from their once expensive and high-end devices.Find out more

With an expected 5.2 billion connected devices by 2025, IoT is now a fundamental component of both government policy and corporate strategy. The ability to track, monitor, record and analyse through an extraordinary array of hugely innovative sensors has already transformed many businesses and industries. But, to date, the true power of IoT has been constrained by the limits of fixed and wireless connectivity: just 15% of the planet is currently covered by affordable, accessible IoT connection.
If organisations are to truly harness the power and sophistication of IoT, connectivity must extend around the globe. It needs to be both affordable and accessible – yet the only alternative to wireless networks has been satellite IoT at a price point that cannot be justified by most businesses or use cases. Until now.

The GSMA has laid out what it calls the mobile industry’s vision of how to maximise the benefits of mobile spectrum for billions of people worldwide ahead of spectrum allocation deliberations at the crucial ITU World Radio Communication Conference (WRC-23) in November and December.
The association has also released a new review of the socio-economic benefits of low-band spectrum, which complements previously released assessments for mid and high-band spectrum.
The GSMA argues that the speed and quality of mobile services are directly linked to spectrum, and decisions taken at WRC-23 have the potential to deliver affordable 5G across the world.Find out more
