oneM2M and the Industrial Domain
oneM2M, a partnership project of regional ICT standards bodies, analog to 3GPP, is set up to develop technical specifications which address the need for a common Internet of Things Service Layer. This Service Layer can be readily embedded in hardware and software, and relied upon to connect the myriad of devices in the field with IoT application servers worldwide.
As oneM2M is by definition a cross vertical approach, existing implementations and deployments span multiple domains, including home, automotive, energy, in some cases integrating multiple domains in Smart Living and Smart City scenarios.
In addition to domain specific aspects of oneM2M, manifesting in work items for the home and vehicular domains, a work item on “Industrial Domain Enablement” has been started. This presentation gives an overview of the ongoing work and how it belongs to the overall oneM2M goal.
