Increasing IoT Value Through Open Standards to be Discussed in Upcoming oneM2M Webinar

Register today for the complimentary webinar which will be held on Thursday, January 18, 2018  

Arlington, Va. (January 11, 2018) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks and a founding member of oneM2M, today announced a webinar that will address the importance of open standards in advancing Internet of Things (IoT) applications that use Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks.

Presenters Dr. Omar Elloumi, of Nokia, Chair of the oneM2M Technical Plenary, and Regional Marcom Vice Chair Chris Meering, of Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), will explore the key findings of Boost LPWA revenue through oneM2M, a white paper published by the global IoT standards initiative last month.

Elloumi and Meering will highlight the challenges Communication Service Providers (CSPs) are facing as they look to make the most of their burgeoning IoT deployments. They will then examine how an open standards approach can increase cost-effectiveness, improve scalability and boost confidence that today’s IoT projects will be future-proof and provide value to the CSPs deploying them.

“One of the main conclusions from the white paper was that CSPs need to find ways to create not just more revenue but also more profit from their LPWA connections and application enablement provides this opportunity,” said Elloumi. “To achieve this, oneM2M provides a single horizontal platform for all applications, breaking down silos that inhibit growth and allowing CSPs to move one level up in the IoT value chain. This most recent white paper presents the case for how this works for LPWA networks and how it will accelerate the mass deployment of the IoT.”

The webinar will also look at the way in which open standards support the advancement of the IoT by introducing a horizontal approach to platform management, allowing CSPs to reduce OpEX and explore opportunities for service innovation.

“The need for interoperability is what drives oneM2M’s architecture, which allows CSPs to work across vertical markets and develop a single horizontal platform for data sharing between applications,” said Meering. “By adhering to oneM2M’s approach, CSPs can open up a whole new world of revenue opportunities and gain true value from their deployments, whilst also reducing OpEX.”

The oneM2M webinar “Boost LPWA revenue through oneM2M” takes place on Thursday, January 18 at 3:00 p.m. EST. Register for the webinar.

About oneM2M
oneM2M is the global standards initiative that covers requirements, architecture, API specifications, security solutions and interoperability for Machine-to-Machine and IoT technologies. oneM2M was formed in 2012 and consists of eight of the world's preeminent standards development organizations: ARIB (Japan), ATIS (U.S.), CCSA (China), ETSI (Europe), TIA (U.S.), TSDSI (India), TTA (Korea), and TTC (Japan), together with five industry fora or consortia (Broadband Forum, CEN, CENELEC, GlobalPlatform, OMA) and over 200-member organizations. oneM2M specifications provide a framework to support applications and services such as the smart grid, connected car, home automation, public safety, and health. oneM2M actively encourages industry associations and forums with specific application requirements to participate in oneM2M, in order to ensure that the solutions developed support their specific needs.
