Delivering standards for global connectivity


Ever wonder how the wireless industry achieves data application interoperability across international borders, networks and devices? How your favorite mobile data application pulls in location information from the network or updates itself automatically? Much of the seamless interoperability we enjoy across the mobile industry is enabled by data specifications defined by the Open Mobile Alliance and implemented by OMA’s industry-leading members across the wireless ecosystem.

OMA is the wireless industry’s focal point for the development of mobile service enabler specifications, which support the creation of interoperable end-to-end mobile services. OMA drives service enabler architectures and open enabler interfaces that are independent of the underlying wireless networks and platforms and that work across devices, service providers, operators, networks, and geographies.
