9th KuVS NGSDP Expert Talk

Machine to Machine Communications Platforms, Applications and Standards

Event Date: 9 April 2014 at Fraunhofer FOKUS, Berlin, Germany
The 9th KuVS Fachgespräch NGSDP has been jointly organized with the 10th Technical Plenary of oneM2M on April 9th, 2014. More than 60 experts from more than 10 countries joined the presentations, discussions and demo hosted by Fraunhofer FOKUS in their premises in Berlin, Germany. The objective of the KuVS workshop was to have an intense exchange of ideas and experiences among researchers from the industry and academia in regards of the combination of M2M and H2H applications with platforms and different network types.
As part of the workshop, the Fraunhofer FOKUS presented live M2M and Internet of Things demos based on the new release of its OpenMTC Rel.3 (www.open-mtc.org) application development platform, including E-Health, Smart Home and other M2M and H2H practical applications.
Twelve presentations were grouped into three sessions: Evolution of Network Architectures towards M2M, M2M and H2H Application References and M2M Research Challenges.
Among other interesting topics, the following topics were addressed:
  • Importance of M2M to industry leading companies like Cisco and Alcatel Lucent.
  • Insight into M2M standardization.
  • Importance and recommendations on how to handle the exploding Data and Information required for M2M via Linked Data.
  • Importance of open APIs and open Infrastructures.
  • Enabling platforms for the development of M2M and H2H applications.
  • Success Stories and challenges from Real M2M and H2H implementations for Smart Cities, E-Health, Smart Energy, etc.
  • Research Challenges and recommendations from different industries, research institutes and universities.
  • Business, strategic, financial and social implications in an M2M environment.
The event finalized with an intense and interesting panel discussion lead by Prof. Dr. Manfred Hauswirth, Vice-Director of the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI).


The objective of KuVS workshop is to have intense discussions among researchers from industry and academia in this challenging area gluing together M2M and H2M applications, platforms and different network types. The workshop will tackle research challenges emerging from different vertical domains such as transport and logistics, utilities, automotive, eHealth, smart grid etc.
