About the GSMA

What is the Internet of Things?

GSMA definition: The Internet of Things (IoT) describes the
coordination of multiple machines, devices and appliances
connected to the internet through multiple networks.

Devices in IoT: Vast array of devices covering many vertical
industries; smartphones, tablets and consumer electronics, and
others including vehicles, monitors and sensors equipped with M2M
communications that allow them to send and receive data.

Growing number of connections: IoT sees innovative new
business models create value by connecting existing and new
“Things” together to create new business processes and
efficiencies including data analytics.

connected will be connected’

Delivering significant socio and economic impact
Selected data on potential socio-economic benefits in Latin America

IoT expected to reduce healthcare
costs in Mexico by USD8.4 billion
- PwC

Healthcare services could reach an
additional 28.4 million people in Brazil
and 15.5 million people in Mexico
- PwC

The implementation of an integrated
security hub as part of a smart city
initiative in the city of Sao Jose dos
Campos helped reduce local murder
rate by 19%
– In Compliance

IoT will reduce the time to respond to
traffic accidents by 25%
- Rio de Janeiro municipality

Smart meters expected to reduce losses
due to energy fraud by 20%
- AMPLA

Through supportive policy and regulatory frameworks
A growing Internet of Things provides a huge range of socio-economic benefits. Governments
and regulators can unlock these benefits by implementing policies that promote innovation and
investment, plus introducing regulatory frameworks that build trust and that are technology
neutral. This will give confidence to consumers and the industry, which will help to drive
adoption of the IoT.

Policies that enable growth

Regulation that builds trust

Create a pro-investment environment

Maintain commercial flexibility

Adopt IoT for government services

Enable global platforms and services

Promote interoperability

Ensure technology and service neutrality

Harmonise spectrum use

Apply data protection frameworks consistently

Develop flexible regulations through government and industry collaboration
Ensure that regulations in key adjacent industries, e.g., public utilities, healthcare,
and transportation, enables the development and adoption of IoT/M2M services
Establish the principle of technological neutrality with regard to IoT/M2M services
Allow for the extra-territorial use of numbering resources
Foster collaboration with industry to encourage the adoption of appropriate
security measures
Foster their data protection frameworks to enable cross-border data flows
Review equipment certification requirements to facilitate the adoption of IoT/M2M
services, where warranted
Consider the implementation of tax exemptions or incentives to promote
investment and research and development in IoT/M2M services

GSMA has recently launched new IoT global resources
The IoT Knowledgebase (www.gsma.com/IoTKB)
• Established GSMA positions on policy and regulation
• Research papers and case studies
• Insight of best practices and market trends
• Statistics on IoT growth and its socio-economic impact
• Key policy themes discussed by regulatory agencies
• Examples of deployments in verticals such as Automotive, Health and Smart Cities

• New paper examining how mobile operators can provide a vital part of the
communications infrastructure that enables a city to become smart.
• Operators can offer:
• advanced secure networks
• management platforms
• a high quality of service and intrinsic knowledge of how to build a
successful smart cities strategy
