As the Internet of Things (IoT) revolution presents an enormous opportunity for all industry verticals ranging from startups to large enterprises to create new types of services, standard bodies and global alliances have been working on establishing common standards for IoT systems. The oneM2M is the global partnership developing standards for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications and the Internet of Things. It develops technical specifications for the globally-applicable, interoperable common M2M/IoT service layer platforms, which play a pivotal role in building the ecosystem driven by key players, including developers and consumers. In this paper, we analyze the oneM2M standards, and introduce Mobius and &Cube, which are oneM2M-compliant M2M/IoT software platforms for servers and devices, respectively. We also present four pilot services using the platforms and several prototype IoT devices. Finally, we discuss three aspects, advanced discovery, open API, and peer-to-peer that are required for the oneM2M to build IoT ecosystem by attracting developers and consumers into the emerging IoT ecosystem.
