The initiative, which was announced last year, becomes official with this milestone event today and recognises the critical importance of mobile technologies in IoT-enabled M2M solutions – a trend which is set to accelerate with the advent of 5G. oneM2M certification through GCF will be key to ensuring proper functionality and compliance with industry standards for fast, efficient, and secure IoT systems in the connected world.
Technologies which comply with oneM2M standards will ensure seamless connectivity and interoperability with back end networks, as well as allowing for safe and secure transactions.
“IoT applications are the beating heart of the 5G ecosystem, which we have seen all around us at MWC19 in Barcelona this year,” said Lars Nielsen, General Manager at GCF. "Companies engaging in our initiative will significantly benefit from successful and reliable IoT connectivity, ensuring a successful deployment of 5G.”
“This development underlines GCF’s expertise in developing certification programmes for advanced mobile technologies in industry verticals,” said Lars Nielsen, General Manager at GCF. “It complements our strategy of expansion from core telecoms technologies into IoT applications to service the emerging 5G ecosystem. GCF is collaborating with world class organisations such as oneM2M and TTA to enable the growth and proliferation of the IoT connected devices ecosystem.”
