ATIS, OCF enter MoU to promote technical interworking of OCF, IoT standards

ATIS and the Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to promote technical interworking between OCF and Internet of Things (IoT) standards. ATIS brings together important ICT companies to advance the industry's business imperatives. OCF is one of the largest industrial connectivity standards organisation for IoT. Under the MoU, ATIS and OCF members will cooperate to develop an open source implementation of an interworking proxy as a pivotal step in making possible user access to a wide range of IoT services for commercial products through use of the oneM2M global standards.

OCF and oneM2M developed harmonised standards to permit interworking between oneM2M and OCF environments. This provides a standardised way to create interoperable IoT systems that can address both local and wide-area network scenarios. ATIS is a oneM2M Founding Partner, and worked to advance adoption of oneM2M standards for the IoT since the organisation's beginnings. As part of this work, ATIS released the OS-IoT software library, which provides developers with a toolkit to access oneM2M capabilities. OS-IoT is a critical resource in helping to boost oneM2M adoption for smart devices and other embedded lightweight applications. The ATIS OS-IoT library was selected to support the oneM2M functionality in the collaboratively developed interworking proxy.

While the starting point for the ATIS-OCF collaboration is based on ATIS' OS-IoT open source implementation of oneM2M standards, the two organisations' joint work will expand from there. ATIS and OCF are already in advanced planning to address interoperability concerns including IoT cybersecurity across ecosystems.
