Stream Technologies, the Internet of Things connectivity solutions provider, announced today (14 January 2015) that it now commercially supports the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) Lightweight Machine to Machine (LWM2M) standard within its IoT-X connectivity solution offering.
Stream said its IoT-X is an industry first, next generation IoT connectivity environment that provides a unified solution for the connectivity management of cellular, satellite, Wi-Fi and low power networks (ZigBee, Zwave, Bluetooth, LoRa...). Stream has licensed ARM mbed technologies to use in IoT-X and is a launch partner for the ARM mbed IoT Device Platform.
Lightweight M2M is a new, emerging technical standard for IoT, specifically directed toward remote management of IoT devices, service enablement and application management. OMA expects LWM2M to become the communications protocol embedded in a majority of IoT devices and platforms.
"Stream is excited to be joining the OMA. I really feel that the OMA provides excellent thought leadership not just for IoT and M2M but across communications in general. Standards such as LWM2M are crucial for the development and growth of the internet of things," said Alan Tait, CTO, Stream Technologies.
The OMA was formed in June 2002 by the world's leading mobile operators, device and network suppliers, information technology companies and content and service providers. OMA delivers open specifications for creating interoperable services that work across all geographical boundaries, on any bearer network.
