Friendly’s OMA-DM Client Certification Received from Verizon and Other US Mobile Carriers

Friendly Technologies is gaining momentum as the leading OMA-DM client provider for device vendors catering to American mobile carriers.

Leading IoT and Device Management company Friendly Technologies announced today that its OMA-DM client has completed the certification process for several mobile carriers in the U.S., including Verizon. The OMA-DM certification marks a key milestone for Friendly.

The Friendly OMA-DM Embedded Client is a robust, carrier-grade client designed for the management and support of mobile devices – including mobile phones, Android devices, cellular gateways, LTE routers, cars, and more.

OMA-DM is a device management protocol created by the Open Mobile Alliance for the management of mobile devices – i.e., not over fixed IP. It enables the remote provisioning, configuration, software upgrades, and fault management of devices.

The Friendly OMA-DM Embedded Client provides a rich feature set to support the device’s manageability, including full support of the OMA-DM and OMA-CP protocol; an extensive SDK, with implementation samples; support for the OMA-DM data model; support of the Linux OS and Android OS; provisioning and bootstrap; APN configuration, Firmware Upgrade over the Air (FUMO), and configuration management; software management and update (SCOMO); Lock-And-Wipe functionality; and high-level security.

“We are glad to see an increasing number of leading, global device manufacturers selecting the Friendly OMA-DM Embedded Client. We are seeing more widespread adoption of our embedded clients – thanks to their extensive functionality and robustness. The Friendly OMA-DM Embedded Client is one of the few embedded client solutions certified by American mobile carriers,” said Ofer Greenberg, Director of Sales at Friendly Technologies.

“The measure of success of any specification is its implementation in commercial products. OMA’s Specifications are built to scale in the massive IoT and 5G networks of today. OMA is always proud to see its members’ work expressed in a Specification and the adoption of those Specifications in products and networks” said Seth Newberry, General Manager of OMA SpecWorks.
