    Network slicing – as a utilization of NFV, SDN, and distributed data centers – enables a single physical network to be used for many different use cases and applications; it is, essentially, a technique to allocate separated logical “slices” for varied purposes. Each slice is a virtual network using a subset of resources of the physical network. These slices are deployable in automated and flexible ways via software. Using SDN and NFV technologies, a separate slice can be set up for each of a wide range of IoT applications. Importantly, network slicing gifts mobile operators with flexibility, speed, and fine-grained network optimization.

    While oneM2M is an important effort to unite the fragmented IoT standards landscape, it originates in the telecom industry and is not universally recognized or accepted as the best path forward toward a fully interoperable IoT market. In addition, leading ICT companies, such as Amazon, Apple, Google, and Samsung, are unlikely to abandon their own efforts to create essentially proprietary, albeit not closed, IoT ecosystems. Nevertheless, given oneM2M’s basic approach of harmonizing existing technologies and incorporating the input of a broad base of global standards bodies and stakeholders, IHS believes oneM2M is one of the most promising paths towards an interoperable Internet of Things.
