“The standards published today mark a major milestone for the Internet of Things, by providing the unique value proposition of a single interworking platform for all enabled devices” said Dr. Omar Elloumi, Chair of the oneM2M Technical Plenary, (Nokia corporate CTO group). “As IoT devices continue to saturate society, standardization is key to achieving universally accepted specifications and protocols for true interoperability between IoT devices and applications.”
oneM2M’s Release 2 comes at the same time as IoT announcements from John Deere, a farm equipment manufacturer, and Certuss Dampfautomaten, a German maker of steam generators used for anything from cooking sausages to sterilizing medical instruments. Their recent announcements discuss the enablement of home and industrial domain deployment – another key feature of Release 2 which allows information from various industries’ applications to exchange data. These mark significant momentum in the future state of a connected society.
In addition to the published specifications, application developers now have access to user-friendly APIs and guidelines, complementing the global set of IoT standards for this critical group of stakeholders, and further facilitating access to the official source of global, IoT-application identifiers that comply with the oneM2M standard, the oneM2M App-ID registry.
“We’re already working on Release 3 as technology advancements don’t stand still,” added Dr. Elloumi. “The oneM2M global alliance is dedicated to providing the necessary interoperability to give technology suppliers and their customers secure connectivity as we embrace the next great technological revolution of the modern era.”
