Double delight for oneM2M as TechXLR8 Awards shortlist is released

oneM2M has been shortlisted in the Leadership in IoT category and oneM2M Technical Plenary Chair, Omar Elloumi, has been shortlisted in the Evangelist of the Year category. Both recognise oneM2M’s progress on accelerating the adoption of IoT and M2M by enabling secure end-to-end interoperability across different vertical platforms.

oneM2M’s shortlisting is the culmination of a busy year for the standards initiative, which has seen the launch of its Release 2 specifications to incorporate interworking, end-to-end secure information exchange and semantic interoperability, as well as deployments from major companies such as Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Sensinov, Huawei, InterDigital and NEC. A number of these deployments have also made it on to TechXLR8’s shortlist.

Elloumi, one of the founding members of oneM2M, has been acknowledged for his work in helping deliver two specification releases, Release 1 and Release 2, as well as his tireless work to spread the organisation’s message and help it reach its goals.

The awards, which form part of the inaugural London Tech Week, recognise outstanding contributions in converging areas of technology and showcase those at the forefront of the industry.

The winners will be announced at the TechXLR8 Awards ceremony on Wednesday, June 14 at Tobacco Docks, London.  For more information about oneM2M, please visit
