WBA members have worked together and setting the core priorities on a specific set of IoT use cases which are paving the way and focus on a range of IoT vertical segments. Acknowledging value is migrating towards the IoT application, focus is on evolution of core WBA competencies associated with network connectivity, identity and service management. WBA is conducting analysis on the evolution of existing value chains and the future role of evolved PasspointTM/NGH based roaming and WRIX roaming specification to accelerate the deployment of those services (unlicensed technologies, monetization/revenue, roaming capabilities).

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Target Audience

Target Audience includes WBA members, Device vendors, device service provider, chipsets vendors, Infrasture providers, Wi-Fi advocates, industry analysts, Wi-Fi operators, Cellular Operators, networking equipment providers.Cellular Operators, networking equipment providers.

Business objectives

  • Identify business requirements for IoT roaming and interoperability

  • Improve the identity management for IoT and open up a new business driver for industry players

Target Outcomes

In this project, WBA is focusing on delivering a new perspective to the IoT space facilitating the definition of identities which in the near term will result in broad interoperability and roaming capabilities. The whitepaper provides key insights and analysis of:

  • IoT identities and IoT Dynamic Roaming

  • Interoperability between technologies (IoT verticals)

  • Evolution of PasspointTM/NGH based roaming to accelerate the deployment of IoT services

  • Baseline the WRIX framework as a foundational standard

  • Recommendation to support IoT expansion with Wi-Fi

  • Key recommendations to address the business issues of IoT Roaming
