ETSI TS 103 327 is intended to lay out standardised service and application interfaces and facilitators, APIs and infrastructure for interoperability management and offers secure interaction and access to SmartBAN data or entities. The SmartBAN reference architecture is a global and integrated IoT reference architecture, oneM2M and Multi-Agent-based. The architecture is provided with cross-functional components for allowing non SmartBAN enabled environments to interoperate with SmartBAN and addresses network, syntactic, informational and semantic interoperability.
SmartBAN uses a set of low-power embedded devices, mainly sensors, wearables or actuators, to collect and monitor vital data of a human being and their environment, but not exclusively.
The SmartBAN reference architecture is managing semantic interoperability through in particular everything as a service (XaaS) mechanisms and a Web of Things (WoT) strategy, which will enable cooperation between different SmartBANs. Generic service enablers and standardised APIs will provide secure interaction and access to SmartBAN data or entities, embedded semantic analytics, automated alarm management, distributed monitoring or control operations.
