1 PROBE-I(O)T PROBING EU-AFRICA COOPERATION ON INTERNET OF THINGS

2 PROBE-I(o)T identity card! FP7 project:! FP7- ICT ! Start Date:! 01/10/2011! Budget (EC contribuaon):! 1,131 k! DuraAon:! 24 months AcAve in internaaonal level with involvment from Brazil, China and Africa

3 Enabling IoT and IoT deployments Time to capitalize on European research advances for IoT deployments Æ Needs to ensure interoperability and acceptance of its solutions in a global context! Means:! International cooperation! Ensure worldwide acceptance of solutions! Avoid unnecessary competitions and overlaps! Value-chain stakeholders cooperation! Support to validation and benchmarking of solutions, concepts, and emerging standards 3

4 General approach of PROBE-IT

5 Expected outcomes / tools! Three main outcomes:! Benchmarking of IoT deployments! Provide stakeholders with decision tools! Enable identifying the best options when deploying or using IoT;! Guidelines and IoT roadmaps for stakeholders! Enable to plan IoT roll-out;! Testing roadmap and solutions! Provide stakeholders with elements to validate technologies conformance and interoperability.

6 Approach: EU-Africa (-America,-Brazil) Planning IniAal discussions for EU- Regional engagement with PROBE- IT regional linking partner Goal: Define plan for exploratory & preparatory acaviaes Site: Europe Timeframe: M1- M6 Exploratory & Preparatory Interact with selected local key stakeholders on IoT (champions, government, key academics/researchers) Goal: Define detailed plans and IoT focus areas for region/country Site: China & Brazil & Tunisia Timeframe: M7- M12 Main Event Main workshop fostering broader IoT EU- Regional cooperaaon/acceptance Goal: IoT acceptance in region with emphasis on regional needs; Exploit PROBE- IT tools suite; Strengthen EU- regional cooperaaon on IoT Site: China & America & Africa, possibly co- located with larger gathering of reference Timeframe: M13- M24

7 PROBE-IT IoT Workshop Tunisia, Sep ITU and EU FP7 Probe-IT Workshop on Internet of Things for Africa Hammamet, Tunisia, 18 September 2012 Internet of Things is seen as one of the most promising area for Africa as it involves many easy to deploy and affordable technologies which can address important technological and societal challenges in various sectors, including e-health, water management, energy, transport, etc. The workshop will give the status of IoT studies and deployment worldwide, will present some real use cases and the international standardization efforts. In addition it will explore how Africa can take full benefit of this major trend for addressing some of its important challenges. Draft Programme 14:00-14:10 Opening remarks: - Rached Hamza, General Manger, CERT. SAmulate dialogue and raise awareness of African 14:10-14:40 Session 1: What IoT applications to address African challenges Moderator: Hend Ben Hadji stakeholders Session on the Objectives: importance This session will give of an IoT. overview of IoT applications and related technologies, e.g., machine-to-machine Sharing knowledge, experase, experiences about IoT. (M2M) communication and ubiquitous sensor networks (USN), which are or may be deployed in Africa and worldwide. Enhance IoT cooperaaon Speakers : between Europe and Africa. -Rached Hamza, General Manger, CERT, A PROBE- IT IoT interoperability event will take place in -Bilel Jamoussi, Chief, Study Group Department, ITU Africa 14:40-16:00 in 2013 Session in collaboraaon 2: IoT successful business with cases the InternaAonal Moderator: Philippe Cousin Session Objectives: This session will discuss international TelecommunicaAon Union (ITU). experiences in this field. Some concrete IoT use cases, which are successfully implemented in Europe and Africa will be Probe- It has established presented. cooperaaon with EU- Africa JEG8 strategic partnership Speakers: - David Garcés TST, Spain, IoT for smart cities and Harbors - Olivier Hersent, Actility, France, IoT for Smart

8 Examples of IoT Applications! Tunisia case: ICT RDI roadmap aims to respond to the evolving needs of ICT market and to enable sustained economic growth. Complete solubons for socio- economic purpose Technologies Infrastructures ❶ Future Internet Plaaorm ❷ Internet of Things ❸ Internet Content ICT for Health ICT for Transport ICT for Energy efficiency & Sustained Develop. Tunis Smart City

9 IoT Growth Catalysts Enable innovaave IoT applicaaons ConAnue expand mobile service reach Drive broadband connecavity Wide scope for integrated applicabons in many sectors (health, smart building, supply chain, etc.) Growing community and culture of developers and localized soluaons (e.g. mobile applicaaons) Mobile service coverage, expanding to new areas (today 36% of populaaon in Africa 25 countries don t have mobile connecavity) Affordability of service access (e.g. handsets) and usage Rollout of 3G and 4G mobile networks Investments in terrestrial backbones, submarine cables and satellite capacity

10 IoT Growth Inhibitors Inefficiency of legal and regulatory environment Reforms at legal and regulatory levels are need to boot the development of IoT technologies across Africa Limited human capacity Small number of IoT experts Limited stakeholder awareness of IoT potenaal Weak public private partnership (PPP) African governments and the mobile industry does not work together in partnership to bring the benefits of IoT technologies

11 Way Forward! Develop strategic framework for IoT promotion! Drive regulatory and institutional reforms to support IoT! Exploit national and international initiatives to strengthen IoT capability! Increase international collaboration:! Competencies and Human Capital Development (student and researcher exchange)! Co-funded RD&I projects (bilateral cooperation)! Demonstrate integrated large-scale IoT application

12 Main findings! Prevalent application areas of IoT:! Home automation and smart Buildings! Environment monitoring! Logistics and supply chain monitoring! Healthcare! Small-scale integrated IoT solutions:! Small coverage! Limited connectivity! Fragmented, silo solutions! Pilot projects! Significant IoT market reach:! Fertile field for IoT introduction in Africa
