Press Release

As the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow rapidly and the number of connected devices multiplies, the global IoT standards initiative oneM2M has unveiled brand new tests as it holds its sixth Interop event.

Interop 6 – hosted by oneM2M founding partners TTA and ETSI and supported by the European Commission – will take place at the Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square, Washington DC, from Monday, July 9 to Friday, July 13.

The Washington location has been strategically chosen as North America continues to dominate the global IoT market, with Grand View Research predicting it will grow at a CAGR of 17.3% between 2018 and 2025.

“The new tests we are introducing at Interop 6 will take us to the next level in ensuring interoperability across the IoT,” said Laurent Velez, Technical Officer at oneM2M. “It is vital that our testing methods evolve and that we continue to implement effective new ways to offer guidance for those already using and those breaking into the IoT space. The benefits of this kind of testing cannot be underestimated with a constant stream of new and innovative devices coming into the IoT.”

Interoperability and conformance testing at Interop 6 will be based on Release 1 and Release 2 specifications. Brand new tests, including announcement, timeSeries, pollingChannel, and blocking resource access, will be carried out alongside existing tests, as defined in oneM2M TS-0013 for interoperability testing and TS-0018/TS-0019 for conformance testing.
