Tokyo, Japan, 4-5 February 2013 Activities of FG-M2M Hideo Himeno FG-M2M WG3 leader NEC Corporation h-himeno[at]bc.jp.nec.com ITU Workshop on E-health services in low-resource settings: Requirements and ITU role (Tokyo, Japan, 4-5 February 2013)
Tokyo, Japan, 4-5 February 2013 2 ITU-T Focus Groups Focus Groups are an instrument created by ITU-T that augment the Study Group work programme by providing an alternative working environment for the quick development of specifications in their chosen areas. Focus Groups are now widely used to address industry needs as they emerge, and when they are not covered within an existing Study Group. The key difference between Study Groups and Focus Groups is the freedom that they have to organize and finance themselves. Focus Groups can be created very quickly, are usually short- lived and can choose their own working methods, leadership, financing, and types of deliverables.
Tokyo, Japan, 4-5 February 2013 3 Focus Group on M2M Service Layer The Focus Group on the M2M service layer (FG M2M) was created in TSAG meeting (January 2012) and started in April 2012. It will conclude usually in one year. M2M (Machine to machine communication) covers very wide area and several standardization activities have already commenced its study in SG13, SG16 and oneM2M. In order to avoid duplicate works with them, FG M2M will focus initially on services and applications for e-health.
Tokyo, Japan, 4-5 February 2013 4 Focus Group on M2M Service Layer The Focus Group on the M2M service layer (FG M2M) was created in TSAG meeting (January 2012) and started in April 2012. It will conclude usually in one year. M2M (Machine to machine communication) covers very wide area and several standardization activities have already commenced its study in SG13, SG16 and oneM2M. In order to avoid duplicate works with them, FG M2M will focus initially on services and applications for e-health. We started study of e-health on definitions, terminology, taxonomies, business model, health record, use case, service, applications, requirements to network, architecture of network, interface and protocols. It is very important to capture requirements of medical and clinical market by consulting with e-health related SDOs (ex.WHO, mHealth Alliance, etc).
Tokyo, Japan, 4-5 February 2013 5 Summary Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication is considered to be a key enabler of applications and services across a broad range of vertical markets (e.g., health-care, logistics, transport, utilities, etc.). A common M2M service layer, agreed at the global level involving stakeholders from the M2M and vertical market communities, would provide a cost-efficient platform, which can be easily deployed in hardware and software, in a multi-vendor environment, and across sectors. The Focus Group on the M2M service layer (FG M2M) will study activities currently undertaken by various standards developing organizations in the field of M2M service layer specifications to identify key requirements for a common M2M service layer. FG M2M will identify a minimum set of common requirements of vertical markets, focusing initially on the health-care market and application programming interfaces (APIs) and protocols supporting e-health applications and services, and draft technical reports in these areas.
Tokyo, Japan, 4-5 February 2013 6 Objectives Collect and document information from the global M2M community and from vertical market entities on current activities and technical specifications including requirements, use cases, service and business models, etc. Draft technical reports to support the development of APIs and protocols to enable M2M services and applications; focusing initially on services and applications for e-health. Facilitate and encourage the participation and contribution of vertical market stakeholders and liaise with other SDOs to avoid duplication of activity. Assist in the preparation and conduct of the ITU/WHO workshop on e-health (26-27 April 2012) with respect to M2M applications and services for the health-care sector.
Tokyo, Japan, 4-5 February 2013 7 Specific tasks and deliverables Perform a gap analysis for vertical market M2M service layer needs, initially focusing on applications and services for the health-care market. Identify a minimum common set of M2M service layer requirements and capabilities, initially focusing on e-health applications and services. Study whether existing APIs and protocols satisfy the above requirements and capabilities to support a common M2M service layer between M2M applications and telecom networks. Draft technical reports describing and addressing the gaps and identifying future standardization work for ITU-T in the field of the M2M service layer. Support global harmonization and consolidation by inputting final deliverables to the parent Study Group and other relevant Study Groups as appropriate. Develop a living list of SDOs, forums and consortia dealing with M2M service layer APIs and protocols, including information concerning their activities and documents in the context of a common M2M service layer platform.

Tokyo, Japan, 4-5 February 2013 11 How can WHO and ITU collaborate in the future FG M2M meeting? We had Joint ITU-WHO Workshop on e-Health Standards and Interoperability in April 2012. It looked very good workshop and we got several conclusions as follows; Produce joint report of this meeting Create working group in both WHO and ITU-T Develop of roadmap of standard and adoption Analysis different standard to indicate the function of it Create portal link standard information Convince value of information and standard by especially policy maker Develop the value of standard of interoperability by collecting practice through use case http://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/Workshops-and-Seminars/e- Health/201204/Pages/programme.aspx
