make IoT interoperability a reality

standardizing intra-device communication

In an increasingly digitized, connected world, the Internet of Things (IoT) is poised to change everything. According to a recent estimate by McKinsey & Company, the overall economic impact of the IoT could reach as much as $6.2 trillion by 2025. But in order for the IoT to reach its full potential, many applications, devices and systems all need to be able to communicate with each other globally, across disparate verticals and service networks. That all starts with the iconectiv AppID Registry.

iconectiv has partnered with oneM2M to develop and manage the App ID Registry, the globally-recognized standards initiative for Machine to Machine (M2M) and the IoT.  The registry was developed under the auspices of the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS). It provides a globally unique software application identifier to facilitate communication between applications and devices. The oneM2M standard, developed by a consortium of eight international standards bodies and more than 200 companies, provides a common service layer that allows applications, devices and services to interconnect. With the AppID registry, you can benefit from a highly-scalable data management solution that empowers you to rapidly monetize and promote an application, while generating new revenue streams from a range of value-added services.

a global identifier

The AppID registry is the first of its kind: an open registry system designed to address IoT interoperability and the inability of unrelated applications to talk to one another. It creates a global identifier based on common standards for each IoT application or device. With these standardized identifiers, all applications from any developer can communicate and share data with each other, facilitating communication between applications in compliance with the global oneM2M standard that is currently being developed as the industry guideline.

The iconectiv AppID registry:

  • Serves as the official source of global identifiers that are compliant with the growing oneM2M standard.
  • Enables organizations to communicate across IoT platforms with other IoT devices and applications.
  • Certifies compliance through an evaluation process that ensures each code is globally distinctive to its specific application.
  • Provides global identifiers based on a global standard that are linked to a corresponding open registry—the only entity currently active in this space.
  • Verifies identity.
