The full potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) advanced significantly today as oneM2M, the global standards initiative for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications and the IoT, published a new landmark set of specifications, Release 2. Based on contributions from more than 200 member companies, Release 2 builds on oneM2M’s initial set of official specifications, which enable basic connectivity between applications and devices.
The new specifications open up the IoT ecosystem to devices that lack the protocol and enable interworking among systems using AllSeen Alliance’s AllJoyn, Open Connectivity Foundation’s OIC, and the Open Mobile Alliance’s Lightweight M2M (LWM2M). As a result, the number of devices that can seamlessly connect with one other in the IoT ecosystem, estimated by Cisco to number 50 Billion by 2020, is greatly expanded.
