ATIS M2M Mission
Advance the capability of M2M services through
technology development that will:
• Enable supplier interoperability;
• Support the monitization of services;
• Reduce operating and capital expenses;
• Improve time-to-market;
• Enable mass-market economies of scale; and
• Deliver a quality user experience.

Why is the interest in this FG so high?
• The revenue opportunity is enormous.
• Forecasted >15B Connected Devices by 2015; >50B by 2020!
• Analysts, academics, journalists, not to mention service
providers are all talking about M2M.
• Subscriber saturation in the U.S. has occurred. There are now
more mobile subscriptions than U.S. residents.
• Machines and sensors represent the clearest way for mobile
revenue and services to grow.
• Many telemetry applications do not use much bandwidth.
• Attraction is similar to short message service: high margins, low
bandwidth consumption.
• Industrial and other specialized M2M applications will be more
churn resistant than traditional “man” vs. machine subscribers.

Working Objectives
• The M2M-FG addresses the M2M, Smart Grid, and
Connected Vehicle opportunities identified by the
Landscape Team.
• The FG is currently assessing:
• In depth Use Case Analysis for Smart Grid and Connected
Vehicle:
• Intent to tease out specific features / functions required for
ICT to support use cases; and
• Hypothesis is that multiple use cases will need many
COMMON feature / functions and parameters supporting a
common service platform for M2M.
• Architectural definition for M2M Service Platform.
• Identification of players across the value chain.

End User
Machine
Connected Vehicle Sub-Team
• Completed assessment of selected use cases that appear to
provide significant commercial opportunities within the ITS
sector.
• Analysis determines how ICT communications could be
leveraged within various use cases and considers the
advantages and challenges associated with utilizing commercial
communication services.
• Initial use cases sourced from U.S. DOT, BII, DMA, AERIS, ETSI
and ATIS Landscape information.
• Assessed industry architectural frameworks and currently
comparing the different frameworks in order to determine what
is most applicable.
• Sub-team will analyze the status of standards related to the
use cases and will highlight standards needs to address the
use cases.

Connected Vehicle Sub-Team
Use Cases
• Data for travel issues (congestion, bad weather, bad roads, etc.)
• Location-based data on nearby gas, lodging, alternative fuel
locations, etc.
• Information to synchronize traffic light patterns to optimize traffic flow
• Data from vehicles to better plan roads and how to balance traffic
• Electronic toll collection
• Electronic Payments
• Charging vehicle from a charging station at someone else’s home
• Charging vehicle from a public charging station
• Collecting diagnostic information and informing when a repair is
needed
• SOS Services/911

Smart Grid Sub-Team
• Completed assessment of selected uses cases that are
relevant to the transmission of the Smart Meter data and
focused on key actors in the consumer domain.
• Initial use cases were selected based on SGIP use case work
already completed (1400+ observed).
• Assessed industry architectural frameworks and currently
comparing the different frameworks in order to determine what
is most applicable.
• Sub-team will analyze the status of standards related to the
use cases and will highlight standards needs to address the
use cases.

Common Service Functions/Capabilities
• FG is identifying common service functions across the
different use cases of M2M, following prior work on individual
use cases.
• Recognized that the current status of M2M is that the application
usually incorporates an application specific service layer function
within it and these functions many times are duplicated across
different M2M applications.
• There can be substantial benefit from creating a common
service layer in the network that provides functions and/or
capabilities that are common across multiple M2M
applications.
• The FG will outline some of the common functions/capabilities
that are required for most M2M applications, in particular, the
Smart Grid and Connected Vehicle use cases.

Common Service Functions;
Business Needs
• Having a common service layer simplifies application
development allowing the application developer to focus on
the application rather than the communication and
management of devices.
• According to the
Beecham report,
the value for such
a service layer is
several 10s of
billions of dollars.
Middleware (device management ,
control, diagnostics, status &
monitoring, location & tracking,
storage) share of what the end user
pays for the service in all sectors –
transportation, healthcare etc.
