NEC to host standardisation meeting in Japan

NEC is to host Asia’s first meeting for worldwide standardisation of M2M communications; the Etsi meeting will take place at NEC’s Tamagawa plant from 12 to 16 September.

About 100 participants from 40 companies are expected to attend, including telecoms operators and ICT vendors from across the world.

“We are very proud of our hands-on involvement with this meeting,” said Shigeru Okuya, vice president and senior general manager at NEC. “There are now a variety of ICT vendors offering M2M applications and sensors with original interfaces. As a result, interoperability difficulties between devices and applications produced by these vendors pose a challenge to the expansion of M2M services.

“Through this meeting, participants seek to foster an environment where M2M services can be cooperatively discussed and a standard interface for applications and sensors can be developed.”

NEC developed and launched sales activities for its M2M service platform, containing core functions for M2M services, for corporate use and telecoms operators. Features of the platform include certification and management for attached equipment, data collection and storage functions for each piece of equipment, as well as security functions.

By adopting a variety of standards, including Etsi, a range of equipment and applications is interoperable.
