The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has published a paper on the Internet of Things (IoT). In line with the TRA’s 2022-23 Work Plan, the paper, titled ‘Position Paper on the Internet of Things’, identifies key areas that help the development of safe, and secure IoT in the Kingdom. The paper covers privacy, network and equipment security, resilience and licensing.
TRA General Director, Philip Marnick said: “We all today already use many IoT devices in our homes and offices. But IoT is set to rapidly increase enabling large numbers of previously unconnected devices to communicate and share data with each other and between different business sectors. It has the potential to bring significant benefits to the Kingdom. However, there are still many challenges that need to be addressed. The TRA’s position paper provides guidance to licensees and stakeholders to ensure they can take full advantage of new IOT developments in a safe and secure way. The TRA has also ensured that our regulatory framework continues to enable the Kingdom to take full advantages on new developments in technology – helping to ensure we a the place innovation can flourish.”
IoT is part of our digital transformation efforts aiming support the deployment of advanced technologies for the benefit of citizens, residents, and businesses right across the Kingdom.
