NTRA issues regulatory framework for IoT services in local market
It comes in line with Egypt's strategy to foster digital transformation across its different sectors
Published in Daily News Egypt on 12 - 01 - 2022

The National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA) has issued the regulatory framework for providing Internet of Things (IoT) services in Egypt.
IoT is deemed one of the most important mainstays of Industry 4.0, operating major systems as well as digital services of smart cities, including smart home, smart meter, and smart transportation.
In fact, this step comes in line with the state's strategy to foster digital transformation across its different sectors and polarise as well as increase investments in this field.
Moreover, it aims to support the state's future plans to establish further smart cities.
To this end, the NTRA studied the optimum international modules and practices with respect to IoT services. Additionally, meetings and hearing sessions are currently being arranged by the NTRA with a number of local as well as global organisations operating in the field to figure out the best regulatory policies applicable in international markets as well as fitting Egypt's telecom market.
Such a framework was actually prepared and approved to act as a regulatory tool facilitating IoT service procedures.
Furthermore, Hossam Al-Gamal, the Executive President of the NTRA, has declared that the new regulatory framework aims to polarise investments to establish IoT networks and sophisticated app platforms.
It also helps with enforcing the state's policy of Industry 4.0 and foster digital information by establishing a large number of sophisticated systems operated via IoT technologies across different sectors.
These technologies would also contribute to mechanising business cycles and providing sophisticated e-services to citizens. Al-Gamal, has further pointed out that the regulatory framework to provide IoT services was adopted and approved by the NTRA in conjunction with Egypt's 2030 Vision, which entails the foundation of a number of cities similar to the New Administrative Capital.
Such a framework seeks to allow the creation of a number of modern smart systems in smart cities and communities. It also helps with the transformation from traditional to modern smart systems to expedite and facilitate the process of e-service provision.
IoT services is a term that refers to all equipment interconnected via telecom networks, where data is exchanged to fulfil the requirements and needs of citizens in all life aspects. IoT apps are also diversified according to different aspects of usage, including end-user, commercial, and industrial infrastructure, as well as government activities.
