The latest real-world implementations advancing the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the role of standardisation in the projects were showcased by stakeholders from across the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and IoT industries as oneM2M, the global IoT standards initiative, held its inaugural Industry Day.
Held with the aim of further increasing industry collaboration on IoT and highlighting how a standards-based approach can accelerate IoT adoption, the Industry Day featured presentations on the latest deployments of the oneM2M standard in different vertical sectors, as well as technical requirements and current pain-points for IoT players as the industry continues to grow at a rapid rate.
Companies such as Tech Mahindra, ADLINK and host, Huawei presented at the event, which also saw contributions from organisations such as the China Communications Standard Association and the China Electronics Standardisation Institute.
Alongside oneM2M members, invited non-member companies and organisations were also in attendance and contributed to presentations and discussions as the event looked to take a holistic view of the role of standards in the expanding and diversifying IoT ecosystem.
“The Industry Day was an important step in the growth of oneM2M, bringing together a broad range of ideas and contributions on the role of its work and how it fits with other technologies in the M2M/IoT space,” said Rouzbeh Farhoumand, senior director of Core Network Standards at Huawei.
“The event provided a great opportunity for representatives from industry verticals to bring their recommendations and requirements to oneM2M, and the attendance of non-members brought a new dynamic to the discussion, sharing their different perspectives on what makes standardisation important and how it can advance the industry as a whole,” he added.
oneM2M’s next Industry Day will take place in Memphis, Tennessee on Wednesday, July 12 and interested parties can request an invitation from the Technical Plenary Chair.
