The advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) has ushered in transformative possibilities for smart cities, with the potential to revolutionize urban living through enhanced connectivity and data-driven decision-making. However, the effective realization of IoT in smart cities hinges upon the seamless interoperability of diverse devices and systems. To address this critical need, the oneM2M standards initiative has emerged as a foundational framework for IoT interoperability. In this research paper, we perform an exploratory analysis of three prominent open-source oneM2M based interoperability systems-Mobius, OM2M, and ACME. We leverage an existing large-scale system provided by our Smart City Living Lab deployed at IIIT Hyderabad, sprawling a 66-acre campus featuring over 370 nodes across eight verticals. We investigate the architectural characteristics of each solution, considering their strengths and limitations in facilitating IoT interoperability. Through this analysis, our paper aims to provide valuable insights for stakeholders seeking to implement IoT interoperability solutions in the context of smart cities. By evaluating the strengths and limitations of Mobius, OM2M, and ACME, we seek to offer guidance for selecting the most suitable solution. Our analysis reveals that the optimal framework choice depends on specific quality constraints: Mobius excels in performance, while ACME offers advantages in ease of setup for smaller-scale implementations.
