Arcep wishes to systematically embed its reflexion into the European and international frameworks. Therefore, the authority fully supports the work led by the European Commission.

Internet of things provides new services and generates unprecedented volumes of data. Such trends entail multiple stakes in the technological, societal and economical domains. What about personal data and network security? Can we (and should we) connect everything?

Two opposite conceptions may be envisioned to facilitate the development of the internet of things. While some people advocate that innovation should be fostered in order to let initiatives abound, others argue that not ruling IoT would lead to the fragmentation of the ecosystem. As IoT is still emerging, should we, as of now, create rules in order to shape the market or let it grow by itself?

It is possible to both regulate AND stimulate innovation! This Monday, 7 November 2016, from 9 am to 1 pm, Arcep invites the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem’s stakeholders, for a morning of dialogue over how we can build IoT regulation together.
The symposium also marks the completion of a collaborative project. Since the start of the year, Arcep and several other public sector stakeholders – CNIL, ANSSI, ANFR, DGALN, DGE, France Stratégie – have been engaged in a dialogue with some 60 IoT ecosystem players. Thanks to this interaction, the draft version of a White Paper was published for consultation during the summer. Two summary documents of this work are published today : a White Paper on preparing for the Internet of Things revolution, the fruit of this collaborative work and the dialogue with the ecosystem’s players, along with a roadmap that concerns Arcep in particular, with a view to supporting the development of IoT networks.
> White paper ”Preparing the revolution of the internet of things:
- Document No. 1: A mapping of Arcep and its partners' understanding of the issues pertaining to the internet of things (in english version)
- Document No. 2 : Arcep's roadmap to develop a pro-innovation regulation (in english version)
