Recommendation ITU-T Y.2063 provides a framework of the web of things (WoT). As the use of various devices has become so widespread, it is difficult to access data on these devices in a unified way. The WoT allows physical devices to be accessed as resources of both the web and services/applications based upon a web-based service environment, as well as through legacy telecommunications.

This Recommendation describes the overview of the WoT and identifies the requirements to support the WoT. In addition, this Recommendation specifies the functional architecture including a deployment model for the WoT.
