LightweightM2M Test Event Co-Located with OMA Member Meeting In Warsaw, Poland

San Diego, CA – September 26, 2017 – The Open Mobile Alliance announced today that registration is open for their October 30 – November 2, 2017 TestFest event. The TestFest will be hosted by AVSystem and will be co-located with the OMA Member Meeting in Warsaw, Poland at the Sheraton Warsaw Hotel. Testing will take place Monday, October 30 through Thursday, November 2 from 9:00 to 18:00 daily. Registration for the TestFest is open to the public through Friday, October 6. The TestFest is open to any organization including both OMA members and non-members for testing client or server implementations of LightweightM2M (LwM2M), as well as any OMA Enabler for which there are three clients and three servers registered.

“Being a member of OMA and taking part in the LwM2M evolution process helps us to create interoperable LwM2M-based IoT services,” said Wojciech Czech, CTO at AVSystem. “We strongly believe that the standardization process and implementation of LightweightM2M are the keys to developing secure IoT ecosystems and efficient IoT/M2M communication.”

Included in the TestFest registration is a Lunch-and-Learn event on Tuesday October 31 hosted by AVSystem. Both TestFest and OMA Member Meeting attendees are invited to join AVSystem for lunch and to hear a tutorial entitled, “LwM2M – Lessons Learned” presented by AVSystem CTO, Wojciech Czech.  Mr. Czech will discuss AVSystem’s experience in integrating their LwM2M based Anjay library on selected hardware platforms, as well as software package management and SMS binding.

“AVSystem has been a proponent of the LightweightM2M protocol and an active participant in the OMA DM Working Group,” said Joaquin Prado, Director of Technical Programs, Open Mobile Alliance. “The lessons learned through deploying the Anjay library will be extremely useful for our TestFest participants who are all working with LightweightM2M in products and services of their own.”

About LightweightM2M (LwM2M)

OMA’s LightweightM2M 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 demand in the market 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, designed for remote management of IoT devices and related service enablement, features a modern architectural design based on REST, defines an extensible resource and data model and builds on an efficient secure data transfer standard called the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP). 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.
