InterDigital is a leading developer of fundamental enabling technologies for standards-based wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) communications that helps to create a common framework and roadmap for cellular operators, service providers and device manufacturers.
The technology focuses on a standardized service layer and application programming interfaces (APIs) that are independent and aware of both networks and applications. This ability allows cellular operators and service providers to fully enable the potential of M2M/IoT business applications – ranging from remote monitoring and control to e-health, smart transportation, and intelligent homes – to change the way people live, work and play.
Since the establishment of the ETSI TC M2M committee in January 2009, InterDigital has made numerous contributions to the standardization process while continuously developing innovative prototyping and demonstrations. The standards leadership is focused on the oneM2M global standard which has issued its Release 1 specifications. The company continues to play a central role in the coordination and integration of hardware and software platforms for multi-faceted demonstrations and field testing –critical milestones towards building an open and scalable M2M/IoT ecosystem across multiple vertical markets on a global scale.
InterDigital is focused on supporting the entire eco-system by providing advanced wireless technologies for emerging M2M markets and the IoT.
