Halifax, 31 Oct – 3 Nov 2011ICT Accessibility For All Gale Lightfoot, Senior Staff Program Manager, Office of the CTO, SPB Cisco ATIS Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Activity Document No: GSC16-PLEN-82 Source: ATIS Contact: Gale Lightfoot, GSC Session: PLENARY Agenda Item: 6.9
Highlight of Current Activities ATIS TOPS Council and Board created its Machine-to-Machine Focus Group (M2M FG) to address M2M, Smart Grid, and Connected Vehicle opportunities –Co-Chaired by Jeff Edlund, HP, and Gale Lightfoot, Cisco. Sub-teams currently include: –(Telematics) Connected Vehicle –(Telemetry) Smart Grid Sub-teams meet weekly to consider: –Use Cases –Architecture Study –Protocol/API Analysis 2
Halifax, 31 Oct – 3 Nov 2011ICT Accessibility For All GSC16-PLEN-82 Highlight of Current Activities (2) Currently assessing –In depth Use Case Analysis for M2M, Smart Grid, eHealth, and Connected Vehicle Discover common requirements/specifications –Architectural definition for M2M Service Platform Seeking common Service Layer elements that enhance overall value of M2M services/applications –Identification of players across the value chain 3

Halifax, 31 Oct – 3 Nov 2011ICT Accessibility For All GSC16-PLEN-82 Strategic Direction 5 Opportunity to define ICTs contribution and role in these emerging markets. Continue to discover area(s) of common ground where Verticals and ICTs potentially converge. The mobility aspect of all M2M-related activities makes ICTs role critical. M2M value-added services remain a relatively untapped market for ICT. Opportunity to examine potential use of the same features/functions and parameters to support a common M2M service platform.
Halifax, 31 Oct – 3 Nov 2011ICT Accessibility For All GSC16-PLEN-82 Strategic Direction (2) 6 The M2M potential for complexity is enormous – Must seek reduction of complexity! –Forecasted >15B Connected Devices by 2015; >50B by 2020! –Subscriber saturation in the U.S. has occurred. There are now more mobile subscriptions than U.S. residents. Service Enabling Platform! –Machines and sensors represent the clearest way for mobile revenue and services to grow. Requires developer friendly environment –Many telemetry applications do not use much bandwidth. Much more activity QoS issues! –Attraction is similar to short message service: high margins, low bandwidth consumption. Much more activity QoS issues!
Halifax, 31 Oct – 3 Nov 2011ICT Accessibility For All GSC16-PLEN-82 Challenges M2M activities involve a broad cast of players from multiple industries with varying terminology. Many moving parts currently being developed without thought of seeking common threads. Converging of multiple platforms. Establishing a Trusted Environment for all businesses associated with vertical services/applications. 7
Halifax, 31 Oct – 3 Nov 2011ICT Accessibility For All GSC16-PLEN-82 Next Steps/Actions 8 Coordinate and align M2M activities with other SDOs and organizations. Continued interaction and collaboration with the verticals (e.g., eHealth, Smart Grid, etc.) providers. Use Case assessment used to sift out service layer commonalities across different verticals.
Halifax, 31 Oct – 3 Nov 2011ICT Accessibility For All GSC16-PLEN-82 Proposed Resolution ATIS proposes revisions to the existing M2M Resolution contained in: –GSC-15/30: Machine to Machine 9
