SK Telecom, partners demonstrate interconnection between oneM2M, OIC tech

SK Telecom, Samsung Electronics, Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI), Atmel and Axstone demonstrated interworking between heterogeneous Internet of Things (IoT) standards -- oneM2M and the Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC) -- at the CES show in Las Vegas.

OneM2M was established in July 2012 by a consortium of ICT standards development bodies to provide a common M2M service layer that can be embedded within various hardware and software; members include Alcatel-Lucent, Adobe, AT&T, BT, Cisco, Ericsson, Deutsche Telekom, IBM, Intel, Samsung, Sierra Wireless and Telefonica. The Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC) was created in July 2014 and consists of members that include Cisco Systems, General Electric, Intel, MediaTek and Samsung.

SK Telecom says interworking between different IoT standards is important as it can dramatically expand the overall IoT ecosystem by boosting the development of IoT products and services that can seamlessly interoperate regardless of standards. Release
