Thank you, Carolyn, for helping us raise awareness about oneM2M. The first order of business for this global standards group is interoperability, with cellular certification and provisioning (my passions) being equally important topics. Committee work on the former is underway, with initial discussions about to begin on the latter.
oneM2M wants to bring M2M players to the collaboration table from the telematics, intelligent transportation, healthcare, utilities and industrial automation industries. Anyone who wants to have a voice in how devices will communicate with each other globally is welcome.
