Building upon the great success of OpenIMC and OpenEPC, Fraunhofer FOKUS, supported by Technische Universität Berlin, released a new Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication platform: OpenMTC. This platform is inspired by the ETSI TC M2M specifications, namely TS 192.921 and TS 102.690. OpenMTC consist of a gateway service capability layer (GSCL) to support a variety of different sensor technologies and a network service capability layer (NSCL) to integrate with other service platforms and to support heterogeneous application domains such as Utilities, Transport & Logistics, Automotive, and Smart Cities.

On April 04, 2012 the 6th Workshop Next Generation Service Delivery Platform (NG SDP) was organized in Berlin, Germany. Around 40 workshop participants discussed the topic of "M2M impacts on SDP Evolution". A live demonstration of the OpenMTC platform was shown during the lunch break. The demo features the ETSI TC M2M specified generic communication (GC), application enablement (AE), and reachability addressing and repository (RAR) service capabilities on both the network and the gateway service capability layer (N/GSCL). More insights into those features are included in the presentation given during the workshop session.

Future Internet – Clean Slate auf grünen Wiesen oder Renovierung an denkmalgeschützten Gebäuden?

On March 2, 2012, Bitkom organized this event covering project reports from currently running German Future Internet projects. The event took place on the spectacular “Cranhouse” location in Köln, Germany.

Fraunhofer FOKUS contributed to this event among presentations with a machine-to-machine (M2M) communication demo. The demo involved 3 scenarios: (1) actuating upon the physical vicinity, (2) sensor remote notification, and (3) context-aware automation. The scenarios practically show how users can configure specific policies (e.g. power consumption threshold and associated actions) that automatically trigger notifications and actuation upon controlled devices based on automatic decisions taken by our M2M server. Users may also directly control smart home devices and trigger further actions via mobile/desktop clients.

If you find such scenarios interesting, please contact us directly or meet our experts at one of the following events:

Cinterion Logo Partnership with Cinterion

Fraunhofer FOKUS and the Cinterion GmbH agreed on a partnership in the field of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. “For the development of our OpenMTC platform, it is crucial to find strong industry partners and experts that help us to gain insight into industry needs and position our research results” says Dr. Sebastian Wahle who is responsible for the M2M business development at Fraunhofer FOKUS.
