Question 2/20

Requirements, capabilities and use cases across verticals

(Continuation of part of Question 2/20)

With the ever increasing number of services and applications, demand for studying the requirements and use cases for IoT and SC&C has been steadily increasing. Emerging IoT and SC&C services and applications are placing more and more requirements on networks and the provisioning of new services, resulting in the need to make networks more and more intelligent with the provisioning of new capabilities. One essential objective is the maximization of the usage of common capabilities in order to provide support to a broad range of IoT and SC&C services and applications in different verticals, in cost efficient, multi-vendor and easily deployable ways over converged infrastructures.

On the other hand, the increasing integration and convergence of advanced information and communication technologies (ICTs) (e.g., distributed computing, data analytics, autonomic networking, software based network functions) with advanced sensing and actuation technologies, are making available a large set of advanced capabilities for the support of new promising IoT and SC&C services and applications in different verticals.

Emerging services and applications to be considered include: ​Consideration will also be given to applications and services based on the integration of the aforementioned services and applications with advanced information and communication technologies.

This Question addresses the support of emerging services and applications for IoT and SC&C, with consideration of the different verticals. On the basis of use cases and related ecosystem aspects, the requirements and capabilities imposed on IoT will be specified.

Study items include, but are not limited to: Capabilities subject to specification include, but are not limited to: Tasks
