Keynote Speech

Internet of Things Architecture, Protocols & Standards:
Opportunities and Challenges

Paul L. Russell, Jr.

Senior Principal Engineer, InterDigital


  This talk focuses on the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. The following topics will be covered: 1) IoT architecture (e.g. C6-based IoT, data-centric architecture, service-oriented architecture); 2) enabling technologies (e.g. device management, P2P communications in proximity, service layer); 3) protocols (e.g. messaging protocols, neighbor discovery protocols); 4) standardization (e.g. oneM2M, IETF, 3GPP MTC, & IEEE). In addition, a standard-compliant IoT platform will be presented. The purpose of this talk is to elaborate and point out opportunities, challenges and existing solutions that will drive IoT to the next level towards large-scale Smart IoT systems in the future.


  Paul Russell (Paul.Russell@InterDigital.com) is a senior principal engineer with InterDigital Communications, where he is currently leading Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) R&D activities. He has managed numerous projects including 3G multi-mode baseband chipset development. Prior to joining InterDigital, he had worked with Motorola and Freescale Semiconductors as a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff. He has more than 25 years R&D and management experience in electronics, wireless and the telecom industry. He has been active in telecom technology standardization including 3GPP, ETSI, IEEE, and IETF. He has previously chaired ETSI TC M2M Working Group 2 for M2M functional architecture. He is currently on the advisory board of a several EU projects on IoT such as BETaaS and ICSI. He holds patents including some pending in wireless modem development targeting 3GPP and satellite based communications, and most recently in the M2M/IoT service architecture, protocols, and enabling technologies.
