Multi-vendor interoperability event validates oneM2M standard for IoT

oneM2M partners European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and Telecommunications Technology Association of Korea (TTA)co-hosted the event at the ETSI headquarters, in Sophia-Antipolis, France from 14 to 16 September 2015, with support from the European Commission.

29 organisations and companies came together to test their equipment against each other. The result was a resounding success: the participants successfully demonstrated interoperability of their oneM2M implementations across a number of different use cases.  Participants also fed back clarifications and enhancements to the oneM2M specifications – another important outcome.

Dr. Enrico Scarrone of Telecom Italia, vice-chairman of oneM2M’s Steering Committee, stated: “With this successful event attracting so many companies, we have demonstrated multi-vendor interoperability which is so important for IoT service providers.”

Dr. Omar Elloumi of Alcatel Lucent, oneM2M’s Technical Plenary Chair explained: “The industry is juggling between several IoT technologies, trying to guess which one will dominate. oneM2M doesn’t aim to pick winners. Our Release 2 specifications, currently under development, provide an interworking framework across IoT protocols, including OMA’s LightWeight M2M, AllSeen Alliance’s AllJoyn and the Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC), preserving the investments already made in each. This is the ‘missing link’ which will help accelerate IoT deployments.”

Prof. JaeSeung Song of Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI), oneM2M’s Test Working Group Chair, outlined plans for future events: “With high demand from many vendors worldwide, oneM2M plans to hold two interoperability events per year. The next interoperability event will be held May 2015 in Korea, also co-hosted by TTA and ETSI.”

Participants at this first oneM2M Interoperability Test Event included: Actility, ANRITSU, Cisco Systems, eDevice, eglobalmarket (EGM), Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), Fraunhofer FOKUS, FSCOM, HandySoft, HERIT Corporation, HP, Huawei Technologies, iconectiv, Institute for Information Industry (III), InterDigital Communications, Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI),  KT, LAAS-CNRS, Modacom, LG U+, nTels, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corp. (NTT), Qualcomm Germany, Radisys, Ricoh, Sierra Telecom, Telecommunications Technology Association (TTA), Telecommunications Technology Committee(TTC).
