OneM2M said the aim of the event was to further increasing industry collaboration on IoT and to highlight 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,” OneM2M said.
Rouzbeh Farhoumand, senior director of core network standards at Huawei, a OneM2M member and one of the presenters at the event, said the event had been an important step in the growth of oneM2M, bringing together a broad range of ideas and contributions on the role of its work and showing how these fit with other technologies in the M2M/IoT space.
“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 said.
IoTAustralia reported the publication by oneM2M of Release 1 of its global standards in February 2015, when oneM2M said, “The era of widespread deployment of M2M technology and the foundation for IoT [has] advanced significantly.”
Release 1was a set of 10 specifications covering requirements, architecture, API specifications, security solutions and mapping to common industry protocols such as CoAP, MQTT and HTTP. They have since been updated with Release 2, issued in August 2016.
OneM2M was formed in 2012 by eight of the world’s leading standards development organisations: ARIB (Japan), ATIS (North America), CCSA (China), ETSI (Europe), TIA (North America), TSDSI (India), TTA (Korea) and TTC (Japan). It membership also includes six industry fora or consortia: Broadband Forum, Continua Alliance, GlobalPlatform, HGI, Next Generation M2M Consortium, OMA, and over 200 member organisations.
The Memphis Industry day is being held as part of OneM2M’s week-long technical plenary meeting on 10-14 July 2017. Non-member companies, research entities, government officials, regulators, other Standards development organisations, etc can attend by emailing the technical plenary chair for an invitation.
