Newly updated global IoT standards from oneM2M will enable interconnection across devices and applications
17 March, 2016
Sophia Antipolis, France, 15 March 2016 - oneM2M, the global standards initiative for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced it has published updated editions of its Release 1 global specifications, a development that promises to enable IoT interworking and create a foundation platform to interconnect IoT devices and applications.
The standards cover requirements, architecture, application programming interface (API) specifications, security solutions and mapping to common industry protocols such as CoAP, MQTT and HTTP. The updated specifications, released just one year after initial publication, have incorporated improvements based on early implementation experience and feedback from oneM2M's first Interop event held last year.
By building upon well-proven protocols that allow applications across industry segments to communicate with each other, the updated standard enables service providers to combine different IoT devices, technologies and applications, a critical feature in their efforts to provide services across a range of industries. Release 1 has already been used in service provider deployments in South Korea, Asia and Europe for smart city and transport system deployments
