IEEE Academy on Internet of Things (IoT) Communication Standards

  • Course Program

Communication technology is an essential part of the Internet of Things (IoT) as it allows IoT devices to be connected to each other. Low power wide area network (LPWAN) is a promising communication standard solution for long range and low power IoT and machine to machine (M2M) communications. IoT service layer platform provides a set of common functions for IoT applications and integrates various communication technologies. In order to provide interoperable IoT solutions to the market, such communications and platforms are integrated based on the global standard solution, e.g., 3GPP 5G and oneM2M. 3GPP 5G technologies serve as a key enabler for IoT applications that need high mobility, low latency, and reliability. oneM2M interworks with 3GPP IoT features for the better adoption by the devices and applications. This learning path covers the basic principles of communication technology and practical usage of standardized communication.

Technical Editor of IoT Standards JaeSeung Song affiliated with Sejong University

JaeSeung Song

JaeSeung Song is an associate professor, leading the Software Engineering and Security group (SESlab) in the Computer and Information Security Department at Sejong University. He received a PhD at Imperial College London in the Department of Computing, United Kingdom. He holds BS and MS in Computer Science from Sogang University. He holds the position of oneM2M Technical Plenary Vice and a director on IoT platforms at KICS. Prior to his current position, he worked for NEC Europe Ltd. between 2012 and 2013 as a leading standard senior researcher. At that time, he actively participated in IoT related R&D projects such as the Building as a Service (BaaS) FP 7 project and IoT/M2M standardizations (i.e., ETSI TC M2M and oneM2M). From 2002 to 2008, he worked for LG Electronics as a senior researcher leading a 3GPP SA standard team. He occupied leadership positions in 3GPP and oneM2M standard groups as a rapporteur and active contributor.

He is the co-author and co-inventor of over 100 international publications, conference papers and patent applications. His research interests span the areas of software engineering, networked systems and security, with focus on the design and engineering of reliable IoT/M2M platforms, particularly in the context of semantic IoT data interoperability, secure software patch techniques and data analytics using machine learning. He also holds leadership roles (series editor and TPC co-chair) in several journals and conferences such as an associate editor of IEEE IoT journal, IoT series editor of IEEE Communications Standards Magazine and TPC Co-Chair of IEEE Conference on Standards for Communications and Networking.
