This standard provides an architectural blueprint for Smart City implementation leveraging cross-domain interaction and sematic interoperability among various domains and components of a Smart City. This standard also leverages an architectural framework for the IoT defined in the draft of IEEE P2413 standard, which relies on the international standard ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010. Based on requirements from government bodies, enterprises, and consumers, a variety of applications will be delivered to create social value. The Smart City applications include water management, waste management, smart streetlights, smart parking, environment monitoring, smart community, smart campus, smart buildings, eHealth, eLearning, eGovernment, etc. This standard defines a Reference Architecture for Smart City that includes Smart City Intelligent Operations Center (IoC), Internet of Things (IoT), including descriptions of various IoT vertical applications in Smart City, and identification of commonalities between different vertical applications in Smart City. The standard defines the four layers of the Smart City architecture, device layer, communication network layer, IoT platform layer, and application layer. Relationships with and attributes specific to the cloud computing center, the edge computing technologies, and big data analysis related to IoT for Smart City are also defined in the standard. The standard describes the Intelligent Operations Center (IOC) which aggregates a wide range of data to visualize the city operational status, enables efficient collaboration across agencies and applications, and facilitates decision-making based on knowledge derived from Big Data. This standard also describes unified security aspects of the Smart City architecture.
An architecture framework description for the Internet of Things (IoT) which conforms to the international standard ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010:2011 is defined. The architecture framework description is motivated by concerns commonly shared by IoT system stakeholders across multiple domains (transportation, healthcare, Smart Grid, etc.). A conceptual basis for the notion of things in the IoT is provided and the shared concerns as a collection of architecture viewpoints is elaborated to form the body of the framework description.
