M2M Plugtests

ETSI Centre for Testing and Interoperability (CTI) has organized the 1st Machine-to-Machine (M2M) interoperability testing event of the ETSI M2M architecture. The event was scheduled from 10 to 12 September 2014 in ETSI, Sophia Antipolis. 

More and more companies implement the ETSI M2M architecture but there is no real possibility to insure their understanding of the standards is correct. The lack of tests available prevents from being confident to go to the mass market.

This Interoperability event offered test sessions where vendors could assess the level of interoperability of their implementations and verify the correct interpretation of ETSI M2M standards.

All M2M systems vendors (including M2M Devices, DA, GSCL, NSCL, NA…) were invited to participate.

The purpose of this event was to verify the M2M primitives interoperability as defined in the ETSI standards and to check end-to-end functionality on ETSI M2M interfaces dIa, mId and mIa.

Interoperability test scenarios based on the ETSI M2M standards TS 102 690 and TS 102 921 were proposed to participants.

Participants had the possibility to verify the common mechanisms (registration, subscription, discovery, access rights, etc …) specified in the standard, whatever M2M use cases is deployed for the implementations.

This activity was supported by the European Commission.
