Momentum grows for oneM2M standard following third interoperability event in Japan

oneM2M, the global standards initiative for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT), reported that adoption of its standard is continuing to grow, with more than 20 companies taking part in its interoperability testing event in Kobe, Japan.

The Interop 3 event saw more than 50 participants from major companies such as Huawei, HPE and InterDigital take part in nearly 100 testing sessions, demonstrating the increasing importance the industry is placing on standardisation within the IoT.

Sessions at the event focused on interoperability for the oneM2M Release 1 and Release 2 specifications, combined with conformance testing to ensure products were correctly debugged and refined. Daily wrap-up sessions were also held to evaluate the testing procedures and findings from the event were fed back to the oneM2M Technical Plenary for refinement of test cases.

“Interop 3 has shown the impressive growth of the oneM2M standard since previous editions of the event,” said Dr. Fran O’Brien, oneM2M’s steering committee chairman. “The vast majority of the products tested in Kobe now at least partially support Release 2, which is excellent news for the standard and IoT interoperability as a whole. This interoperability will only become more important as the IoT continues to expand and permeate our daily lives.”

Co-organised by the Telecommunications Technology Association of Korea (TTA) and European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), the third event of its kind gave organisations implementing oneM2M standards the opportunity to validate interoperability and check end-to-end functionality.

oneM2M testing events are open to all companies interested in testing their products for interoperability.
