Press release date: August 8, 2012

The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) member and accredited standards developer, and ANSI member the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS), in collaboration with five leading international information and communications technology (ICT) standards developing organizations (SDOs), have formed a global organization dedicated to the efficient spread of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications systems. The new group, known as oneM2M, was launched at a July 24 meeting in Bellevue, Washington.

oneM2m will focus on developing and coordinating international standards to ensure that a wide variety of industries can benefit from the expected economic and labor-saving benefits of M2M. The group welcomes cooperative work with other organizations and is open to participation from other interested groups and parties. In addition to TIA and ATIS from the U.S., the co-founding organizations are the Association of Radio Industries and Businesses (ARIB) and the Telecommunication Technology Committee (TTC) of Japan; the China Communications Standards Association (CCSA); the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI); and the Telecommunications Technology Association (TTA) of Korea.

The initial focus of oneM2M will be on the creation of a common M2M service layer, which could be embedded inside a wide variety of hardware and software in order to connect devices with global M2M application services. The group will also work to develop M2M end-to-end specifications that are globally agreed upon, allowing use across M2M applications.

Up to 50 billion worldwide M2M connections are expected by 2020, a major increase over current usage. The widespread implementation of M2M has the potential to lower operating and capital expenses for a variety of industries - including transportation, healthcare, and agriculture - by creating economies of scale, reducing time to market, and simplifying application development. M2M is expected to play a role in a large number of developing services and applications, including home automation, energy management, telemedicine, and the smart grid.
