Spirent Communications announced that it has become the first official test tool provider for oneM2M. The global standardization body selected Spirent TTsuite-oneM2M to provide IoT device manufacturers, developers and providers the confidence that their communication devices, services and associated software will pass oneM2M requirements in terms of interoperability and compliance.
Spirent TTsuite-oneM2M is a ready-to-use, standardized test solution for IoT/oneM2M conformance testing, covering all service layer functions. It allows users to perform fully automated conformance, interoperability and system tests to detect issues at early design stages and along the whole development process.
“The Internet of Things is such a unique phenomenon because it brings together so many previously disparate strands of technology and different industries”, says Jae Moon Park, President of Telecommunications Technology Association (TTA) of Korea, oneM2M’s global certification body. “oneM2M is pushing standardization to make it easier for individual stakeholders to partner and interwork with component providers, application developers, solution integrators, data and content owners, and with wireless/wireline connectivity providers. We are happy to partner with Spirent, and to use their sophisticated oneM2M test solution. It perfectly suits and supports our activities to standardize interfaces, so they are applicable to the entire ecosystem.”
“We are proud to support the standardization activities of oneM2M”, says Stephan Pietsch, Director of Products & Engineering Automotive, TSN & IoT in Cloud & IP at Spirent. “Our test solution enables individual industries and businesses to interoperate openly but securely with one another. This allows M2M and IoT providers to simplify the management of their devices and applications, to reduce their investments and time-to-market, as well as development and onboarding costs.”
This oneM2M test solution provides a detailed result analysis and is flexible for future adaptations and enhancements. oneM2M applications and proprietary extensions can be built on top of it, using existing functionalities as well as plug-and-play components (plugins), covering technologies like CoAP, WSDL, MQTT, HTTP, WebSockets, ASN.1, Protobuf, and more.
Spirent became a oneM2M member to support the scalability and flexibility needed to maximize the potential of IoT and M2M. The two key objectives of oneM2M are to:
- provide an interworking framework to support applications and services such as the smart grid, connected car, home automation, public safety, and health;
- enable re-use of existing infrastructure for easy communication, cooperation and access to data or components of applications.
