WASHINGTON — ATIS today announced that it has successfully demonstrated devices using its OS-IoT Software accessing cloud-based oneM2M standard services over the public LTE network. The OS-IoT open source client platform is now available to allow lightweight devices to access oneM2M IoT clouds without having to run full oneM2M database and routing functions. The global oneM2M standard defines a common, interoperable, platform for IoT systems, providing application-independent building blocks that fulfill core tasks of secure data collection, management and distribution.
As the IoT revolution advances, a broad range of applications, including wearable devices, low-cost environmental monitors, smart meters and smart cities applications, depend on highly-evolved machine-to-machine communications capabilities. The use of the oneM2M standard can address current concerns about IoT security, trustworthiness and data privacy while still providing openness where appropriate. OS-IoT simplifies development of oneM2M support for the many IoT devices that need to meet aggressive targets for device cost and power consumption.
“With OS-IoT, developers of IoT devices now have full and easy access to oneM2M’s capabilities, which will help reduce time-to-market and barriers to entry for their applications and make them easily available for use over cellular technology,” said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller. “Working together, OS-IoT and the oneM2M standards free developers to focus on the unique value-add, revenue-generating aspects of their innovations instead of spend their time solving data management and security issues.”
“A standards-based approach is essential to facilitating the growth of IoT markets. InterDigital has long seen the oneM2M standard as the broadest standard for the services that enable a range of IoT applications,” said Jim Nolan, Executive Vice President, Products at InterDigital. “It was an honor to be part of this significant milestone for ATIS and its community by contributing the ChordantTM platform for testing of the cloud-based oneM2M services.”
The heart of OS-IoT is a client library with minimal architectural dependencies – permitting targeting of different CPUs and operating systems. The OS-IoT library provides device-side (i.e. Application Entity in oneM2M terminology) support for fundamental oneM2M network and protocol functions, allowing application developers to interact with the system over a resource-oriented API. ATIS provides test cases and extensive documentation of the library at os-iot.org.
As a leading technology and solutions development organization, the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) brings together the top global ICT companies to advance the industry’s business priorities. ATIS’ 150 member companies are currently working to address 5G, cyber security, robocall mitigation, IoT, artificial intelligence-enabled networks, the all-IP transition, network functions virtualization, smart cities, emergency services, network evolution, quality of service, billing support, operations, and much more. These priorities follow a fast-track development lifecycle – from design and innovation through standards, specifications, requirements, business use cases, software toolkits, open source solutions, and interoperability testing.
