OneM2M picks TTA as global test and certification partner
April 12, 2017
OneM2M has chosen the Telecommunications Technology Association (TTA) of South Korea as its global testing and certification organisation to help drive the certification of its standards.
TTA will provide certification and testing services to OneM2M members as well as to non-members that have implemented OneM2M standards. It has already developed test specifications, certification test equipment, certification logos and an official OneM2M certification web page. TTA has also secured the latest test certification technology through its interoperability event jointly held twice a year with the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (Etsi).
With the launch, Korean companies KT, SK Telecom, Kepko and NTels have been awarded the first official certification for four of their products.
Looking to the future, TTA will continue to help expand the certification services by testing new standards developed by the oneM2M working groups, which should benefit the IoT and M2M industry.
TTA has been providing a OneM2M certification service since 2014 to ensure compatibility of OneM2M products and, as the official testing and certification organisation, will continue to expand the testing and certification service by keeping up to date with standards and further collaborate with overseas testing institutes to provide feedback on the standards.
“TTA’s cooperation with OneM2M has made the world’s first global certification system in the IoT field,” said TTA president Park-Jae-Moon. “In the second half of this year, TTA will provide testing and certification services for various IoT technologies leading the global market by opening a global IoT test certification centre.”
