Common requirements of the Internet of things
|Publication Date:||1 June 2014|
This Recommendation provides the common requirements of the Internet of things (IoT). These requirements are based on general use cases of the IoT and IoT actors, which are built from the definition of IoT contained in [ITU-T Y.2060]. The common requirements of the IoT are independent of any specific application domain, which refer to the areas of knowledge or activity applied for one specific economic, commercial, social or administrative scope, such as transport application domain and health application domain.
This Recommendation builds on the overview of IoT [ITU-T Y.2060], developing the common requirements based on general use cases of the IoT and IoT actors and taking into account important areas of consideration from a requirement perspective. The common requirements of the IoT specified in this Recommendation are classified into the categories of non-functional requirements, application support requirements, service requirements, communication requirements, device requirements, data management requirements and security and privacy protection requirements.
The scope of this Recommendation includes:
- general use cases of the IoT
- IoT actors
- important areas of consideration from a requirement perspective
- common requirements of the IoT.
The common requirements of the IoT are summarized and numbered in Annex A.
Some representative use cases of the IoT, which are abstracted from application domains, are provided in Appendix I.
NOTE - Regulatory, legal and business aspects are outside the scope of this Recommendation. Protocol and interface related requirements (e.g., for the control and management aspects of IoT) are also outside the scope of this Recommendation.
