What is LWM2M?

OMA SpecWorks’ LightweightM2M is a protocol for device management, designed especially for managing sensors, microcontrollers and machine to machine communication.

It’s dedicated to managing lightweight and low power or resources devices working in different network environments.

“Lightweight M2M enabler defines the application layer communication protocol between a LWM2M Server and a LWM2M Client, which is located in a LWM2M Device.”

About LWM2M

It was created by Open Mobile Alliance – the organization responsible for creating unified standards for the mobile industry.

Over 25 global companies are currently using LWM2M technologies in the process of developing their product or services. Due to interesting possibilites, this number is still growing.

OMA Lightweight M2M is designed to:

  • Provide Device Management functionality over sensor or cellular networks
  • Transfer service data from the network to devices
  • Extend to meet the requirements of most any application
