AVSystem has launched an LwM2M Interoperability Program with AT&T for
automatic LwM2M interoperability testing. This will facilitate adoption
of LwM2M, expedite IoT service deployments and promote LwM2M as a core
technology for building IoT ecosystems.
Built on AVSystem’s Coiote
IoT Device Management platform, the LwM2M Interoperability Program
aims to help OEMs, device integrators, chipset and module manufacturers
certify compliance and learn how well their devices support the LwM2M
protocol. The program allows service providers and enterprises to
quickly onboard and manage their devices which is an enormous aid in
creating reliable, scalable IoT services with improved time to market.
Interoperability Program features automated and semi-automated
interoperability test cases which include all LwM2M 1.0.2 interfaces:
Bootstrap, Client Registration, Device Management & Service Enablement
as well as Information Reporting. The tests are based on AT&T Device
Management Implementation Guide (DMIG) requirements and Enabler Test
Specification from OMA SpecWorks – the authors of the LwM2M standard.
The program also allows for modifying the test cases in runtime by the
system user. In addition, the platform provides the interoperability
user with helper tools for extracting and analyzing logs.
The LwM2M Interoperability Program is going to be extended to support
LwM2M 1.1 soon.
“The adaptation of the LwM2M protocol is observing a big growth in IoT,
especially in the case of LTE-M and NB-IoT access networks. Thus, such
initiatives as interoperability programs are very important to simplify
integration of different LwM2M libraries and contribute towards
decreasing the number of incompatibility issues in multi-vendor IoT
environments,” – says Slawomir Wolf, CEO at AVSystem.
This collaboration between AT&T and AVSystem promotes LwM2M as the
primary protocol for IoT device management to help reduce the
fragmentation of technologies in IoT and bring the flexibility required
in cross-vertical deployments.
No IoT deployment is successful without proper device management – this
is what AVSystem stands for. We help companies around the globe deliver
better quality of service thanks to our best-in-class device management
solutions. We also focus on WiFi VAS and indoor location as well as
systems for SDN and NFV. In addition to creating software, we actively
participate in the standardization process of the Lightweight M2M
(LwM2M) standard to enable secure device management in the IoT
ecosystem. More than 100 companies worldwide, including some of the
world’s largest mobile network operators, rely on AVSystem to expedite
their IoT service deployments. Learn more at www.avsystem.com.
