oneM2M Conducts Interoperability Testing to Push IoT Standards
Tuesday, September 05, 2017 | Comments

oneM2M, a global standards initiative, is pushing forward on internet of things (IoT) interoperability and standardization following a testing event in Taiwan and an industry day.

oneM2M, which was formed in 2012 and consists of eight standards development organizations worldwide, held its fourth interoperability testing event in Taipei in June. Interop 4 gave organizations implementing oneM2M standards the opportunity to check end-to-end functionality via oneM2M interfaces and validate interoperability, with a total of 13 companies taking part.

Taiwan aims to have a 5 percent stake in the global IoT market by 2025.

“Taiwan is looking to become a major player in the IoT, and Interop 4 helped drive this goal by giving organizations in the country and the wider Asia region the opportunity to test and improve their deployments,” said JaeSeung Song, associate professor at Sejong University and Test Working Group chair at oneM2M. “Interop 4 was our second interoperability event of the year, and its success highlights the continuous growth of oneM2M’s standards.”

Hosted by South Korea’s Telecommunications Technology Association (TTA) and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), two of oneM2M’s founding partners, along with the Taiwan-based Institute for Information Industry (III), Interop 4 allowed participants to take part in interoperability scenarios from TS-0013, oneM2M’s testing specification. Testing at the event was based on oneM2M’s set of standards, Release 1 and Release 2 and covered functional architecture, service layer core protocol and CoAP, HTTP, MQTT and WebSocket protocol binding.

The event allowed companies to check interoperability levels of their implementations and ensure they had interpreted oneM2M’s standards correctly. Conformance testing to help debug products was also available.

An industry day hosted by the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) in July in Memphis, Tennessee, USA, brought together HPE, InterDigital, Qualcomm, AT&T and iconectiv to further collaboration on IoT initiatives and accelerate adoption through a standards-based approach. Representatives of industry groups Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF), Zigbee Alliance, Thread and Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), as well as TTA, presented ways in which their initiatives complement oneM2M activity.

“IoT is about device and application proliferation, and oneM2M is working to lay the foundation of an IoT data economy through an interoperable approach to both domain-specific and cross-domain IoT,” said oneM2M Technical Plenary Chair Dr. Omar Elloumi of Nokia. “Interoperability is essential for the IoT to reach its full potential, and this can only truly be achieved through collaboration among leading industry stakeholders.”

oneM2M’s next industry day will take place in India 20 September.
