NTIA Seeks Comment on Internet of Things


The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has initiated a proceeding regarding the Internet of Things (IoT) to review the current technological and policy landscape. NTIA seeks broad input from all interested stakeholders — including the private industry, researchers, academia, and civil society — on the potential benefits and challenges of these technologies and what role, if any, the U.S. Government should play in this area. After analyzing the comments, the Department intends to issue a “green paper” that identifies key issues impacting deployment of these technologies, highlights potential benefits and challenges, and identifies possible roles for the federal government in fostering the advancement of IoT technologies in partnership with the private sector.  Comments will be due 45 days after the notice is published in the Federal Register, which has not yet occurred.
