@RichQ  precisely! There was an active participation by NIST folks in TIA-TR50 committee as NIST was also involved in Smart Grid Interoperability Standards. NIST in my opinion is atypical of other goverment bodies that meddle in regulations!

Absolutely. I don't think it is a good idea to run full-blown TCP/IP stack on IoT devices. There are at least 2 reasons. Firstly, the footprint may not fit well. By increasing memory size, the power consumption becomes a challenge. Secondly, the longer the packet, the higher the power consumption on transmit.

There might be a role for government in standards that affect public safety, but I don'tthink that governments need to (or should) be involved in most commercial applications of the IoT. The people working in the field have a much better handle on the needs and challenges than anyone in government. And I trust market forces to work out a standard eventually.

The trouble with having a single standard communications protocol is that it may be too complex for some applications and perhaps not capable enough for others. I have difficulty with the idea that my IoT thermometer reading outside temperature every few minutes will use the same protocol as the IoT devices monitoring the real-time performance of a jet engine. My expectation is that different application domains will choose their own sets of standards to use. I agree that security needs to be a key part of any reference architecture, though.

I think Government need to intervene to push for one set of standards, otherwise the fragmented nature of the IoT will continue and there won't be enough money for companies to be made.

A standard communication protocol will definitely enable better competitive market and will ultimately help advancing the technology. However, a standard could introduce security issue. I'm sure all these organizations have put in a reference architecture with security in mind. Question is whether there can be a better collaboration between different standard bodies so that there are at least a standard for communication between clusters following different standards.

You may want to catchup on the activities of TIA's TR-50 committee here:

http://www.tiaonline.org/all-standards/committees/tr-50

I used to attend the conf calls in 2011 but have not participated in last the two years.

I assume you are referring to the Telecommunications Industry Association? Here's the link to them: http://www.tiaonline.org/

They do have a new standard out: TIA-4940 (new)Smart Device Communications (M2M) Reference Architecture but you have to buy it to see it and so I don't know its scope or content.

Add TIA to the list as well... I hope IEEE leads the way!

There's a live chat on standards taking place at IoT World. Here's the link if you want to join in: http://www.iotworld.com/messages.asp?piddl_msgthreadid=18015

The chat starts at 11am Eastern Time Friday 6/27 and will run about an hour. If you miss it, you can still find the archive of the chat using the same link.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
