MOSCOW, 18 Oct – PRIME. The national standard for smart devices, including metering devices for housing and communal services, should appear in Russia before the end of this year, RIA Novosti was told in the press service of the National Technology Initiative (NTI).
“The national standard in the field of the Internet of Things, which will allow the creation of a unified accounting system for smart and connected appliances and devices, including metering devices for housing and communal services, should appear in Russia by the end of 2022 … Work on the draft standard” Wireless data transmission protocol for high-capacity networks based on ultra-narrowband radio signal modulation (OpenUNB) since 2019, the NTI Competence Center “Technologies of Wireless Communication and the Internet of Things” based on Skoltech and Technical Committee 194 “Cyber-Physical Systems” have been conducting,” the report says.
Nikita Utkin, director for the development of technological standards at the NTI Platform, noted that the document regulates the organization of radio channels between a large number of devices transmitting information and network gateways. “The standard will be in demand in a wide range of so-called smart or connected devices, including in the field of metering consumed housing and communal services … The OpenUNB standard allows you to combine smart meters and other devices into a single system. The document is completely ready, has passed public discussions,” he added he.
According to Utkin, the standard is energy-saving, which is important for solutions in the field of smart apartment buildings, in particular, IoT solutions in housing and communal services and general building infrastructure, in which wireless devices most often receive energy from a built-in battery.
“The developed standard provides high reliability of signal transmission, resistance to cyber attacks and protection against information leakage to third parties. The document is harmonized with international approaches to the development of IoT protocols, and is also brought into line with the norms of domestic encryption standards,” he stressed.
