In this paper, we are briefly discussing on the ETSI SmartBAN standard and its utilization in medical Internet of Things (mIoT) applications. The ETSI SmartBAN standard is defining physical and medium access control layers (PHY/MAC), as well as semantic interoperability mechanisms and security for smart wireless body area networks (WBAN). SmartBAN is a European initiative towards wider WBAN utilization. Using the technology providing common language for data representation jointly with energy efficient PHY/MAC implementation is seen as an enabler of future smart mIoT, and IoT networks in general. Since SmartBAN is initially targeted to operate in heterogeneous radio environment, it can also jointly operate with future systems, such as 5G and 6G.
