Prestigious award comes following the launch of oneM2M’s Release 3, which opens up new opportunities for industrial, smart-home and mobile verticals
Sophia Antipolis, France, 25 April 2019: Recognising its ongoing efforts to accelerate mass adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) through standardisation, oneM2M – the global standards body for IoT – has been awarded the Top IoT Standards Body of the Year at the seventh Annual Compass Intelligence Awards.
Voted on by more than 40 industry-leading press, editors, journalists, and thought leaders, the awards celebrate the outstanding contributions and latest innovations made in the rapidly growing tech market, including in Mobile & Wireless, IoT and Emerging Tech. As part of the IoT section, oneM2M was selected as the top recognised IoT organisation focused on IoT standards, specification development and testing.
The accolade comes following the launch of its latest set of specifications in late 2018, Release 3, which represent the first IoT service layer to interwork with 3GPP core network IoT features, creating new application and revenue opportunities in industrial, smart-home and mobile segments. Other winners named in the awards include tech giants and industry leaders Apple, CenturyLink, Qualcomm, Siemens, Verizon Wireless and more.
“It is an honour to be named Top IoT Standards Body of the Year, particularly in a scheme which invites voting as this highlights the important role the industry sees oneM2M as playing in the IoT sphere,” said Enrico Scarrone, Steering Committee Chair at oneM2M. “I am confident that the dedication and commitment of our members to standardise the IoT will continue as we look to unlock the full potential of the IoT ecosystem, and the opportunities it can bring for a range of verticals. In doing this, standards are critical to enabling the mass IoT market where everything just works and works together.”
oneM2M’s common service layer can be embedded within hardware and software to create a common language between IoT devices, enabling vertical interoperability, best-in-class security and interworking with legacy IoT standards. oneM2M’s vast membership, which is made up of global operators, vendors, consumer electronic manufacturers and regulatory bodies, are working to ensure the standard is adopted globally to accelerate the mass IoT market, as well as IoT focused verticals such as smart cities, Industry 4.0, connected vehicles, the smart home and more.
