Standards for M2M and the Internet of Things

oneM2M Advances Industrial, Home and Security Specifications; New Leaders Announced from IBM, Fujitsu, Samsung and LAAS-CNRS

At their 18th Technical Plenary meeting held in Philadelphia, PA, on 20-24 July, oneM2M's members agreed on plans for the second release of oneM2M specifications and appointed new chairmen and vice-chairmen to advance the agenda of several key working groups.

Advancing oneM2M Specifications to Needed New Deployment Capabilities

Release 1 of the oneM2M specifications was delivered in January 2015 (see www.onem2m.org/release1). This set of 10 specifications covered requirements, architecture, APIs, mappings to common industry protocols, security and management, abstraction and semantics.

Work on Release 2 began immediately on delivery of Release 1. Ten new specifications have been identified for Release 2, in addition to updates of the existing Release 1 specifications, driving deployment of the following features:

  • Enablement of Industrial Domain (“Smart Factories”) and of Home Domain (“Smart Home”)
  • Dynamic authorization and end to end security
  • Semantic interoperability
  • oneM2M as generic interworking framework (incl. support for OMA LWM2M, AllJoyn and OIC)
  • Application developer APIs and guidelines
  • Release 2 of oneM2M is planned for delivery in autumn 2016. In parallel with the development of Release 2, a revised set of Release 1 specifications is in preparation to take account of early implementation experience. These will be released in autumn 2015.

The latest draft oneM2M specifications for Release 2 and the revised Release 1 are available at: http://www.onem2m.org/technical/latest-drafts

New Leadership Announced for Working Groups on Protocols; Management, Abstraction and Semantics; and Testing

Peter Niblett of IBM was appointed as chairman of the Protocols Working Group, which develops and specifies APIs, protocols and message formats used across oneM2M interfaces, including mapping to commonly used M2M protocols. As IBM Senior Technical Staff Member responsible for the architecture and design of IBM Internet of Things and Mobile Messaging offerings, Mr. Niblett served as vice-chairman of the oneM2M Protocols Working group, as well as in other IoT standardization groups. Shingo Fujimoto of Fujitsu was appointed as vice-chairman of the Protocols Working Group for a second term.

Mr. Niblett replaces Dr. Ray Forbes of Ericsson, who has stepped down from his position. Dr. Forbes had led this group from the creation of oneM2M and has successfully driven the production of the four core specifications of oneM2M's first release. Dr. Omar Elloumi, the chairman of the oneM2M Technical Plenary, thanked Dr. Forbes at this meeting for his dedication, service and hard work in leading this group to achieve its targets for Release 1 specifications and continuing with the development of Release 2.

In addition, new vice-chairmen were appointed to other working groups. Ms. Jieun Keum of Samsung Electronics was appointed vice-chairman of the Management, Abstraction and Semantics Working Group and Mr. Mahdi Ben Alaya of the LAAS-CNRS research institute was appointed as vice-chairman of the Testing Working Group.
