International Technical Working Group on
IoT-Enabled Smart City Framework

Two barriers currently exist to effective and powerful smart city solutions. First, many current smart city ICT deployments are based on custom systems that are not interoperable, portable across cities, extensible, or cost-effective. Second, a number of architectural design efforts are currently underway (e.g. ISO/IEC JTC1, IEC, IEEE, ITU and consortia) but have not yet converged, creating uncertainty among stakeholders. To reduce these barriers, NIST and its partners convened an international public working group to compare and distil from these architectural efforts and city stakeholders a consensus framework of common architectural features to enable smart city solutions that meet the needs of modern communities.

Welcome to the draft release of the IES-City Framework

NIST and its partners are proud to present this draft of the IoT-Enabled SmartCity Framework ("IES-City Framework") for smart city stakeholder review and feedback. The Framework was presented on February 8th in Washington DC to an assembled community of Smart City stakeholders. The Framework was developed by dozens of participants from around the world who are seeking methods of convergence and harmonization for smart city deployments.

We are beginning as of February 8th a 60 day review period. During this time we encourage all interested stakeholders to review the IES-City Framework document, and, the artifacts of the Framework. Download them at the links presented below and use the link provided to email to the committee your comments and recommendations. Following the review period, the authors will take about 30 days to review and incorporate the best feedback received into a version 1.0 release that will be provided on this site. When commenting on the document, please provide references to sections and line number ranges so we can identify clearly what is being described.
