ICT standards bodies herald launch of oneM2M

Seven of the world’s major ICT standards bodies have come together for the launch of a new organization designed to accelerate the smooth deployment of M2M services.

oneM2M, as the organization is called, has been set up to develop the technical specifications for future M2M services, allowing the industry to benefit from greater interoperability and economies of scale.

oneM2M’s members include the Association of Radio Industries and Businesses (ARIB); the Telecommunication Technology (TTC) of Japan; the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) and the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) of the US; the China Communications Standards Association (CCSA); the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI); and the Telecommunications Technology Association (TTA) of South Korea.

The specifications developed by oneM2M are intended to provide a common platform that can be used by communications service providers to support applications and services as diverse as the smart grid, the connected car, eHealth and telemedicine, the enterprise supply chain, home automation and energy management and public safety.

Initially, oneM2M will focus on what it says is the need for a common M2M Service Layer that connects devices in the field with M2M application servers worldwide.

Ultimately, it says, its goal is to help various industries lower operating costs and capital expenses through the use of M2M technology. It also hopes to create mass-market economies of scale, simplify the development of applications and avoid standardization overlap.

The global M2M market is expected to hit 50 billion connections by 2020, according to some forecasts, and affect every major industry, from healthcare to transportation and energy to agriculture.
