ATIS Announces oneM2M Release 2 Specifications
Thursday, September 29, 2016 | Comments

The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS), a founding partner of the oneM2M, the global standards initiative for machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and the internet of things (IoT), announced publication of a new set of oneM2M specifications, Release 2.

Based on contributions from more than 200 member companies, Release 2 builds on oneM2M's initial set of official specifications, which enable basic connectivity between applications and devices. The new specifications open the IoT ecosystem to devices that lack the protocol and enable interworking among systems using AllSeen Alliance's AllJoyn, Open Connectivity Foundation's OIC and the Open Mobile Alliance's Lightweight M2M (LWM2M).

As a result, the number of devices that can seamlessly connect with one other in the IoT ecosystem, estimated by Cisco to number 50 billion by 2020, is expanded.

The critical area of security has also been addressed throughout the 17 specifications of Release 2, by enabling end-to-end secure information exchange between any devices or servers, as well as implementing attribute and role-based dynamic access control. Meanwhile, semantic interoperability enables meaningful data exchange for secure distribution and reuse.

"The standards published today mark a major milestone for the IoT, by providing the unique value proposition of a single interworking platform for all enabled devices," said Dr. Omar Elloumi, chair of the oneM2M Technical Plenary. "As IoT devices continue to saturate society, standardization is key to achieving universally accepted specifications and protocols for true interoperability between IoT devices and applications."

In addition to the published specifications, application developers now have access to user-friendly application programming interfaces (APIs) and guidelines, complementing the global set of IoT standards.

"We're already working on Release 3 as technology advancements don't stand still," said Dr. Elloumi. "The oneM2M global alliance is dedicated to providing the necessary interoperability to give technology suppliers and their customers secure connectivity as we embrace the next great technological revolution of the modern era."
