oneM2M, the global standards initiative for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT), announced that it will host its second interoperability event following the success of its inaugural test session last year.
Co-organised by oneM2M’s founding partners TTA (Telecommunications Technology Association of Korea) and ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute), oneM2M Interop 2 will give organisations implementing oneM2M standards the opportunity to validate interoperability and check end-to-end functionality via oneM2M interfaces. It is also expected to include a Conformance Testing Tool Demo in order to help companies understand oneM2M conformance testing, which aims to determine to what extent a single implementation of a particular standard conforms to the individual requirements of that standard.
The European Commission and the Korean Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning are supporting the free event – which will take place in Seongnam, South Korea, from Tuesday, May 10 to Friday, May 13 2016.
“As IoT continues to gain momentum, it is becoming all the more important to ensure interoperability across multiple industries to ensure ease-of-use and widespread adoption,” said Prof. JaeSeung Song of Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI), chairman of oneM2M’s Test Working Group. “Our first interop event was a great success which we hope to build on further and we would encourage all industry players to attend and test their implementations of oneM2M standards.”
oneM2M specifications which will be tested include oneM2M Release 1 standards TS-0001 (Functional Architecture), TS-0004 (Service Layer Core Protocol), TS-0008 (CoAP Protocol Binding), TS-0009 (HTTP Protocol Binding) and TS-0010 (MQTT Protocol Binding).
To attend oneM2M Interop 2, companies need to register by Monday, April 18 at: http://www.etsi.org/news-events/events/1045-onem2m-interop-2.
