Standards organisation will now look to build on success with more regular testing events

Seoul, Korea, 13 July 2016: oneM2M, the global standards initiative for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT), has held its second successful interoperability testing event, with a total of 20 companies taking part.                                                                                                

Co-organised by oneM2M’s founding partners Telecommunications Technology Association of Korea (TTA) and European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), oneM2M Interop 2 gave organizations implementing oneM2M standards the opportunity to validate interoperability and check end-to-end functionality via oneM2M interfaces.

The European Commission and the Korean Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning supported the free event which took place in Seongnam, South Korea. Following the success of the recent event, oneM2M now plans to host similar sessions more regularly.

“Like our first interop event, this second session was a great success and well-attended, showing the importance of interoperability to the whole industry,” said oneM2M’s Technical Plenary Chair Dr. Omar Elloumi, of Nokia. “The full promise of IoT will only be realised if the technology is truly interoperable and these testing events provide a significant step towards that.”

Testing took place based on test scenarios described in oneM2M specification TS-0013. The following oneM2M Release 1 specifications were used by implementations at this event: 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).

The full list of organisations which participated in this event is: Anritsu Corporation, AT4WIRELESS, C-DOT, CETECOM, Easy Global Market, ETRI, Handysoft, HERIT, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd, InterDigital, KETI, KEPCO, KT, LAAS-CNRS, LG Electronics, LGU+, MODACOM, NTT, Sejong University and Sensinov.
