Standards for M2M and the Internet of Things

“IoT Evangelist of the Year” prize for oneM2M’s Omar Elloumi

London, UK, 15 June 2017. The tireless work of oneM2M’s Technical Plenary Chair Dr. Omar Elloumi was last night paid tribute to, as he collected a prestigious “IoT Evangelist of the Year” industry award recognising his contribution to the progression of the Internet of Things (IoT).

Held at IoT World Europe, in London, the TechXLR8 awards celebrate outstanding contributions in converging technology areas, covering industries such as 5G, virtual and augmented reality, the IoT, cloud, connected automotive and artificial intelligence.

“As the only representative of a standards organisation to be shortlisted for this award, I am thrilled to have been named the winner,” said Dr. Elloumi. “Without interoperability, the IoT will not reach its full potential and progress to mass market adoption and we see this award as recognition of that fact. It is also a tribute to all of oneM2M’s members, who are currently working on our next set of specifications, Release 3, as we continue to unlock the promise of the IoT.” 

Dr. Elloumi, of Nokia, heads up the Technical Plenary of oneM2M, the global standards initiative for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and the IoT. Over the past year, he has played a leading role in the ground-breaking work of the organisation, which includes the launch of its Release 2 specifications to incorporate interworking, end-to-end secure information exchange and semantic interoperability. Dr Elloumi is regularly invited as a panellist or keynote speaker and is recognised for evangelising IoT advancements to the industry at large. 

The judges highlighted how this has resulted in true advancement of the IoT, with major companies such as Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Sensinov, Huawei, InterDigital and NEC using oneM2M’s standards in real-world deployments.
