The third Interop event will allow participants to run Conformance Testing to further refine their products oneM2M, the global standards initiative for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced it will host its third interoperability event in Kobe, Japan, from Tuesday, November 29 to Friday, December 2, 2016. This event follows the success of its two previous test sessions. Interoperability and functionality Interop 3 – co-organised by the Telecommunications Technology Association of Korea (TTA) and ETSI – will give organisations implementing the oneM2M standard the chance to validate interoperability and check end-to-end functionality on oneM2M interfaces. The third edition of the event will also allow participants to run Conformance Testing to help them further refine their products. The latest event follows the recent publication of oneM2M’s Release 2 and major oneM2M-based deployments from leading companies, such as NEC, LG and Huawei. Accelerating IoT deployments “Following the success of our first two events, we hope to see as many attendees at the event as possible so we can further accelerate IoT deployments" “With the publication of our latest set of specifications, Release 2, and the growth of the IoT continuing at a rapid pace, interoperability is crucial for the industry,” said Fran O’ Brien, oneM2M’s steering committee chairman. “Following the success of our first two events, we hope to see as many attendees at the Kobe event as possible so we can further accelerate IoT deployments that truly add value to users’ daily lives.” oneM2M specifications which will be tested include oneM2M Release 1 and Release 2 standards TS-0001 (Functional Architecture), TS-0004 (Service Layer Core Protocol), TS-0008 (CoAP Protocol Binding), TS-0009 (HTTP Protocol Binding) and TS-0010 (MQTT Protocol Binding).
