by OMA | Thursday, February 9, 2017

AVSystem, Krakow, Poland, 09 February 2017 – AVSystem is glad to announce that its LightweightM2M (LwM2M) library Anjay was published as open-source software under Apache 2.0 license. Anjay follows C99 standard and is compatible with the newest version of LwM2M Technical Specification. The software and documentation can be found on GitHub.

AVSystem’s goal is to provide the most complete LwM2M library, which can act as a reference implementation for device manufacturers and IoT solution providers. Anjay is prepared for integration with constrained devices and has minimal requirements regarding RAM usage, Flash usage and CPU consumption. The library was tested during recent OMA Test Fest events receiving top results. As an optional element, AVSystem offers full commercial support for Anjay and also access to their cloud Coiote IoT Platform for testing.

‘We are sure that AVSystem’s contribution to IoT standards, together with other tools developed by the OMA community, will significantly help speed up the adaptation of LwM2M technology, which fills the security and interoperability gap in today’s IoT picture.’ said Wojciech Czech, CTO at AVSystem.

‘The Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) congratulates AVSystem on publishing the Anjay library based on OMA’s LwM2M,’ said Seth Newberry, General Manager at OMA. ‘LwM2M is being adopted across multiple industries as a part of the Internet of Things (IoT). In a world where hundreds of millions of devices will be connected, it is important for developers to have access to standards-based implementations.’

About LightweightM2M
OMA’s Lightweight M2M is a device management protocol designed for sensor networks and the demands of a machine-to-machine (M2M) 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 the Internet of Things (IoT). The LwM2M protocol features a modern architectural design based on REST, defines an extensible resource and data model and reuses and builds on an efficient secure data transfer standard called the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP), standardized by the Internet Engineering Taskforce (IETF) as a variation of the Internet’s HTTP. LwM2M has been specified by a group of industry experts at the Open Mobile Alliance’s Device Management Working Group and is based on protocol and security standards from the IETF. The LwM2M specification is freely available at http://openmobilealliance.org/wp.index.html.
