Standards for M2M and the Internet of Things

Latest oneM2M IoT standardisation progress to be showcased at MWC 2018

Connected car and Smart City demonstrations will highlight how oneM2M addresses interoperability and security challenges.

Barcelona, Spain, 25 February 2018: The outcome of the ever-increasing efforts to further advance the Internet of Things (IoT) will be revealed at Mobile World Congress 2018, as numerous oneM2M members demonstrate their latest innovations across multiple sectors.

From smart cities and automated vehicles to e-health and industrial processes, the number of connected devices in all areas of life is only set to vastly increase. Gartner Analyst Group places IoT at the top of its emerging technologies and anticipates a five-to-ten-year period for the market to reach full maturity. But interoperability remains a key concern for the IoT industry and as market demands continue to accelerate, a multi-purpose and collaborative approach is required.

As the global IoT standards initiative, oneM2M addresses this challenge by providing a universal framework for IoT deployments. These standards are being supported by leading industry players – including Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), iconectiv, Intel, InterDigital and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., which will have oneM2M-based solutions showcased at MWC 2018. Experts from IBM will also speak at the event.

“The IoT device and platforms market is continuing to grow at a rapid rate and interoperability is essential to ensuring that this momentum continues,” said Jim Nolan, Executive Vice President, Chordant at InterDigital. “Horizontal, standards-based approaches to further evolve IoT are pivotal, as they ensure IoT deployments are scalable and cost-effective. This year’s Mobile World Congress will highlight real-world deployments already demonstrating this and it is fantastic to see so many fellow oneM2M members shining a light on their developments.”

Chordant™, an InterDigital business, will also host a number of IoT demonstrations at the InterDigital stand in Hall 7, Stand C761. These will demonstrate how the Chordant platform, a solution based on the oneM2M standard, is used to harmonise devices, data and services. Some of the featured use cases enabled by the Chordant platform will include smart city data marketplace, multi-connectivity and edge processing, SCEF interface to core networks, and monitoring over LPWA networks.

Meanwhile, Qualcomm Technologies’ Seshu Madhavapeddy, Vice President of Product Management for IoT, will speak during Mobile World Congress’ IoT Security & the Blockchain conference on Monday, February 26 at 11am and discuss how the IoT can be protected end-to-end through strong ecosystem collaboration – from chip to cloud.

HPE will host a number of IoT demonstrations at its stand in Hall 3, Stand 3E11. These will show how the HPE Universal IoT Platform utilises the oneM2M-based horizontal approach across verticals such as Smart Cities and Precision Agriculture, including integration with edge-based solutions from HPE’s Edgeline Converged Edge Systems. The HPE Universal IoT Platform has been designed from its inception to be aligned with oneM2M and, as a result, can support multiple industry-specific use cases on the same horizontal platform.

About oneM2M
oneM2M is the global standards initiative that covers requirements, architecture, API specifications, security solutions and interoperability for Machine-to-Machine and IoT technologies. oneM2M was formed in 2012 and consists of eight of the world's preeminent standards development organisations: ARIB (Japan), ATIS (U.S.), CCSA (China), ETSI (Europe), TIA (U.S.), TSDSI (India), TTA (Korea), and TTC (Japan), together with five industry fora or consortia (Broadband Forum, CEN, CENELEC, GlobalPlatform, OMA) and over 200 member organisations. oneM2M specifications provide a framework to support applications and services such as the smart grid, connected car, home automation, public safety, and health. oneM2M actively encourages industry associations and forums with specific application requirements to participate in oneM2M, in order to ensure that the solutions developed support their specific needs.
