Specialist Task Force 531:
SmartM2M conformance testing for oneM2M specifications

Who we are:

What we do

The objective of the STF531 is to produce and maintain a set of standardized conformance Abstract Test Suites (ATS) for oneM2M architecture and core protocol.

The standardized testing language TTCN-3 is used for the production of the oneM2M test suites.

The produced test suites are also validated against implementations during a series of oneM2M interoperability events organized by ETSI in collaboration with TTA.

An Implementation eXtra Information for Test (IXIT) proforma associated to the ATS is produced complementing the test cases to perform conformance testing using oneM2M dedicated test equipment.

For more details, see our Terms of Reference

Why we do it

oneM2M considers testing as a key element in the success of oneM2M and therefore several work items for developing conformance test specifications are active.

TC SmartM2M has a strong interest to support oneM2M testing activities by bringing in the ETSI methodology, gained from many years of experience. It also reinforces the role of TC SmartM2M to be a centre of expertise in the area of M2M and Internet of Things (IoT) to support M2M services and applications, acting here as the European arm of the oneM2M partnership project.

TC SmartM2M leading this conformance testing activity will ensure the quality of the oneM2M standards. The worldwide well-known ETSI methodology for developing high quality test specifications is a very important piece for the community in order to validate the conformity to the standards. With such conformity validation, companies will be confident to bring products to a mass market like IoT/M2M and thus make oneM2M success.

How we do it

The STF is under the monitoring and responsibility of TC SmartM2M, working with and under the quality control of the ETSI CTI (Centre for Testing and Interoperability). The STF provides regular reports to the TS SmartM2M as well as to the oneM2M TST WG.

The produced ATSs are contributed to oneM2M TST WG for the completion of the specifications TS-0019 and TS-0029.

In addition, the STF531 provides support in terms of Change Request contributions to the related test specifications such as TS-0017, TS-0018, TS-0027 and TS-0028.

Most of the working sessions are held in ETSI premises.
