The report “Standards for the Internet of Things” provides detailed analysis of standards, old and new, that will shape the emerging Internet of Things. It considers the various relevant standards covering communications, connectivity, networking, service layers, data abstraction and discoverability. Many have been around for decades, while others are just starting to emerge. It also examines standards relevant to specific vertical markets such as automotive or connected buildings. It includes discussion of the various standards development organisations as well as providing views on issues such as the importance of IP, the relative merits of different wireless architectures, and the impact of TV White Space.

Standards and standardisation initiatives covered in the report include 6LowPAN, AllJoyn, BACnet, Bluetooth (including Bluetooth Low Energy), Cellular (including GSM/GPRS, W-CDMA, LTE), CoAP, Continua Health Alliance, DECT ULE, Eclipse Foundation, EnOcean, FI-WARE, GENIVI, HyperCat, LonWorks, M-Bus, MirrorLink, MQTT, OMA LightweightM2M, OneM2M, Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC), REST, Urban OS, Weightless, Wi-Fi, and Zigbee (and 802.15.4).
