An approach to expose M2M services over OMA next generation service interface
Context provisioning refers to the trend of gathering, transporting and processing context in order to promote context awareness in Future Internet services. Context awareness enables services to become adaptive, personalized, and accessible in dynamically changing environments. In various scenarios of Internet of things (IoT), connected objects shall be able to negotiate and adapt to their environment. Consequently, the context awareness is an essential feature for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) platforms in order to realize the IoT and enable the management of Context providers (connected objects) and Context information. This paper proposed an abstraction layer to interface ETSI compatible M2M platforms with NGSI Context Management standards interface. The aim of this approach is to promote M2M services adaptation to the ambient environment.
