Chordant Platform Achieves First oneM2M Certification Based on Expanded Verification Program

Chordant Platform to Serve as Industry Reference for Future Test System Validation

Company Release - 3/19/2018 8:25 AM ET

WILMINGTON, Del., March 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterDigital (NASDAQ:IDCC) and its Smart-Cities focused business, Chordant™, today announced that the Chordant platform was the first product to be certified through the latest comprehensive verification program from the oneM2M™ global certification body, Telecommunications Technology Association (TTA).

Last week, oneM2M and TTA announced the latest expansion of its comprehensive verification services to include oneM2M conformance testing. With the expansion, TTA aims to provide more comprehensive verification services that reach beyond the existing interoperability verification.

The conformance testing was successfully performed on the Chordant platform using the Spirent TTsuite-oneM2M, which is a solution based on the test automation platform TTworkbench. The Chordant platform was the first product to be certified following the expanded certification program and will be used as the industry reference for future test system validation.

“Interoperability is essential to safeguarding the rapid growth in the IoT device and platform market,” said Jim Nolan, Executive Vice President, Products, InterDigital. “IoT has the opportunity to impact the way we work, play and live in a tremendous way. However, the true value will only be unlocked when all ecosystem players work together utilizing a standards-based approach across different devices, networks and applications.”

“Spirent is happy to provide TTA with their oneM2M test solution for conformance certification testing,” said Stephan Pietsch, Director of Products and Engineering Automotive, TSN & IoT at Spirent. “We are happy to support the establishing of one standard for the entire M2M and IoT market that enables interoperability across geographies and different industry sectors."

From the beginning, InterDigital has been an active contributor to the development of standards-based IoT. The company was present at the first meeting of the ETSI TC M2M committee in January 2009, and unveiled a prototype M2M system that was used as a platform for the first multi-company M2M standards demonstration in 2010. In 2012, the company’s platform powered multi-vendor M2M demonstrations. In 2016, the company’s platform was used at the first oneM2M interop events and TTA announced the addition of the company’s oneM2M-compliant server/cloud test tools to its comprehensive test suite. In 2017, the company launched Chordant focused around solutions enabled by its platform based on the oneM2M standard.
