oneM2M Outlines 8 Techniques for Sustainable IoT

Sophia Antipolis, France, 10 October 2022

Industry expectations as reflected in Juniper Research’s industry research report anticipate a near doubling of the internet of things (IoT) market, from $31 billion in 2022 to more than $61 billion by 2026. This growth builds on a massive increase in the population of connected devices. This has non-negligible implications for the use of materials, energy consumption and, the volume of data sent over communications networks.

Responsible design, carbon-footprint and sustainability are crucial considerations in the context of massive numbers of connected IoT devices, IoT networks and IoT systems. To address these challenges, oneM2M's latest sustainability White Paper describes “How oneM2M is Enabling More Sustainable IoT Deployments”. The White Paper focuses on eight practical measures for reducing energy consumption, increasing system longevity, and minimizing the amount of e-waste in IoT deployments.

Dale Seed of Convida Wireless, who launched oneM2M’s Sustainability Initiative observed that “IoT is a very important and well positioned technology to help reduce environmental impact and inefficiencies for many use cases like smart farming, smart energy production and smart supply chain management. What’s often overlooked however, is IoT has its own carbon footprint which can undermine its benefits if not deployed responsibly. This white paper provides an overview of some of the key features defined by the oneM2M standard that enable more sustainable IoT deployments”.

oneM2M’s latest publication builds on an earlier White Paper that explores the market and strategic context for sustainability and IoT. Together, the two publications help users and suppliers in the IoT ecosystem to understand promising usage scenarios and the benefits of IoT for sustainability. They also provide guidance on sustainable design principles and design practices that organizations can factor in their procurement decisions.

About oneM2M
oneM2M is the global standards initiative that covers requirements, architecture, API specifications, security solutions and interoperability for Machine-to-Machine and IoT technologies. oneM2M was formed in 2012 and consists of eight of the world's preeminent standards development organizations: ARIB (Japan), ATIS (U.S.), CCSA (China), ETSI (Europe), TIA (U.S.), TSDSI (India), TTA (Korea), and TTC (Japan), together with industry fora or consortia (GlobalPlatform) and over 200 member organizations. oneM2M specifications provide a framework to support applications and services such as the smart grid, connected car, home automation, public safety, and health. oneM2M actively encourages industry associations and forums with specific application requirements to participate in oneM2M, in order to ensure that the solutions developed support their specific needs.
