WASHINGTON - ATIS today announced release of its new Open Source Internet of Things (OS-IoT) software library, which helps IoT app developers more easily connect their products to the open, interoperable oneM2M ecosystem. The global oneM2M standard defines a common, interoperable, platform for IoT systems, providing application-independent building blocks that fulfill the core tasks of data collection, management and distribution needed by IoT solutions. By making it easier to support oneM2M in device software, OS-IoT is ideal for use by embedded application developers who want to participate in the oneM2M ecosystem to provide open, scalable, cloud-based IoT data collection and management.The OS-IoT library is seen as a critical resource in helping to boost oneM2M adoption for smart devices and other embedded applications.
"We heard a strong message from our members that maximizing the value of common technical platforms for the industry requires not just open standards, but Open Source implementations of those standards, and this is even more important to IoT," said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller. "OS-IoT underscores ATIS' commitment to Open Source and facilitating the wider industry adoption of open IoT solutions for Smart Cities, Smart Home, Smart Transport and other applications."
The OS-IoT library provides device-side (i.e. Application Entity in oneM2M terminology) support for fundamental oneM2M defined functions. It provides support for the oneM2M network and protocol functions allowing application developers to interact with the system over a resource-oriented API. By using the library application, developers reduce the effort needed to support IoT devices that hook in to the oneM2M ecosystem. Instead of having to deal with network and protocol application developers are freed to focus on the unique, value-added, aspects of their application.
