IoT Standards Discussion Set for South Korea
Wednesday, August 29, 2018 | Comments

oneM2M, a global internet of things (IoT) standards initiative, will highlight IoT in September in South Korea.

oneM2M will mark its fifth industry day in South Korea as the number of South Korean IoT service subscribers reaches close to 6 million, according to data from the Ministry of Science and ICT. The country’s three largest operators, SK Telecom, KT and LG U+, have already deployed oneM2M-based IoT platforms, highlighting the importance of standardization in nurturing large-scale IoT deployments.

“While the IoT is gaining momentum worldwide, South Korea is at the forefront when it comes to real-world implementations based on standards, which encourage mass adoption, giving it a leading position in the race to unlocking the IoT’s full potential,” said Jae Moon Park, president of Telecommunications Technology Association (TTA). “That is why IoT Week Korea is a great platform to showcase how standards such as oneM2M’s can truly create an interoperable, secure IoT ecosystem, not only in South Korea, but across the globe.”

The 14 September industry day in Seoul will include a presentation from LG CNS on how it is using oneM2M’s specification in its IoT Platform INFioT, which is being used in its latest smart city management platform Cityhub. Busan, the second-largest city in South Korea, is another example of a smart city that uses the oneM2M platform to deliver more than 26 smart city services to its 3.6 million population.

oneM2M’s latest release of specifications — Release 3 — will introduce new IoT interoperability and interworking capabilities. The release is expected to bring new opportunities for mobile operators looking to monetize IoT services.
