The oneM2M Application Identifier (App-ID) Registry, Managed by ATIS and Powered by iconectiv, Provides the Essential Means for Interconnecting IoT Applications


Sophia Antipolis, France, 8th September 2015 oneM2M, the global standards initiative for Machine to Machine (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT), has designated ATIS (Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions), a oneM2M founding partner, as the initial Registry Management Authority for an Application Identifier (App-ID) registry powered by iconectiv. In this role, ATIS, in coordination with iconectiv, will oversee the market launch and availability of the oneM2M App-ID Registry.


The oneM2M App-ID Registry enables delivery of globally unique software application identifiers based upon oneM2M specifications and application identifier management to support developers and enterprises within industry verticals.


With the rapid growth in oneM2M solutions across industry verticals, there is an explosion of applications and devices that need to interoperate within and across service provider networks. This has created a critical need for unique identification of software applications to ensure seamless interconnection with devices and networks for service delivery. The current use of non-standard identifiers and proprietary formats for identifying software applications makes interconnection extremely difficult. It also prevents effective tracking and reporting necessary for service fulfilment and billing.


The oneM2M App-ID Registry solves the problem by providing a central source for application registrations and subsequent lookups. The registry enables:


  • Generation of unique standards-based identifiers
  • Centralized App-ID data management through a robust, fault-tolerant registry
  • Processing of thousands of concurrent transactions


With the establishment of the oneM2M App-ID Registry, key security processes can utilize App-IDs to streamline oneM2M deployments across service provider and vendor platforms. Clearly defining the oneM2M applications paves the way for industry-wide interoperability, where all players understand exactly which applications are running within their respective domains.


“ATIS sees its role as the oneM2M Management Authority as vital to ensuring oneM2M’s consensus-driven specifications are put into use to enable connectivity for the Internet of Things,” said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller.


“The oneM2M App-ID Registry furthers the oneM2M vision of open access and device interconnections across M2M business verticals,” said Richard Marano, Executive Vice President of Information Solutions, iconectiv.


The new oneM2M App-ID Registry is targeted for public launch in December 2015. If you have any press enquiries with regards to this latest release, or would like to set up a briefing with a oneM2M representative, please contact Michelle Mahoney on or +44 (0) 1636 812152.
