The Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) announced that the popular LightweightM2M (LwM2M) version 1.0 specification has moved from Candidate Release status to Approved Release status. The OMA Board of Directors passed the motion to move the specification to Approved status at its meeting held February 9 in Canada. Marking an important milestone for this specification, which is being widely deployed in the industry, the move to Approved status indicates that all features for LwM2M v1.0 have been frozen. New features on the LwM2Mroadmap will be included in subsequent versions of the specification.

“I am excited to introduce the LwM2M v1.0 standard, a holistic approach to IoT device management standardization,” said Padmakumar Subramani, Principal Product Manager at Nokia and Chairman of the Device Management Working Group at OMA. “LwM2M exemplifies efforts of OMA to combine lower layer standards coming from 3GPP and IETF. I would invite everyone involved in developing IoT products and services to download the specification to get first-hand information on LwM2M.”

LwM2M is a device management protocol designed for sensor networks and the demands of a machine-to-machine environment. With LwM2M, OMA has responded to market demand for a common standard for managing lightweight and low power devices on a variety of networks necessary to realize the potential of IoT. The protocol features a modern architectural design based on REST, defines an extensible resource and data model and reuses and builds upon an efficient secure data transfer standard called the Constrained Application Protocol. It is standardized by the Internet Engineering Taskforce as a variation of the Internet’s HTTP.

More than 25 companies are currently deploying LightweightM2M in products and services. Products include the ARM mbed IoT Device Platform, AVSystem’s Coiote Platform, Ericsson’s Dynamic Digital Interaction (DDI), Gemalto modules, Huawei’s OceanConnect IoT Platform, IoTerop’s IOWA LwM2M commercial stack, Microsoft’s Azure, Nokia’s IMPACT IoT Platform, Sierra Wireless’ modules, gatewaysand IoT platform and more.
