Open-source LwM2M client to support at-scale management of IoT devices globally

Tel Aviv, July 19th 2021 – Friendly Technologies, the IoT Device and Data Management company, announces the release of its Professional Embedded LwM2M Client and associated SDK as free open-source software (FOSS) project. The LwM2M Client is targeted mainly for IoT device manufacturers to comply with industry standards for efficient mass IoT device deployments, wherein many Telcos globally have employed LWM2M as the preferred IoT device management standard.

Tzvi Skapinker, VP Products at Friendly Technologies, states: “We have released a fully-featured, high-quality LwM2M Client that is efficient and requires a very low footprint for RAM, Flash, and CPU resources. An example of this is the ultra low power Cortex M4 and ARM MCUs that some of our customers are using. This announcement arises from our active involvement with OMA SpecWorks, the standards body for IoT device and data management. We felt it our obligation to contribute to the IoT developer community at large to further advance and support efficient IoT device deployments globally.”

The project aims to promote telecommunication and IoT industry maturation worldwide by offering LwM2M resources back to the developer community. The client allows for the interoperability to any standards-based device management platform and can be extended to suit specific IoT target devices or application needs. Organizations that require further support or project assistance can count on the professional services team at Friendly Technologies to assist in realizing a solution to meet their specific needs.

Mr Ilan Migdal, CEO at Friendly Technologies states: “Friendly Technologies have invested significant R&D resources developing and maturing the LwM2M client to this point, a number of our global customers have benefitted from utilizing this professional client in their own IoT device developments. As an innovation organization we look forward to seeing device vendors adopting LwM2M as their IoT device protocol of choice, this aids the standards for interoperability, it aids and benefits the entire IoT ecosystem. ”

In addition to the release of this LwM2M client, Friendly offers a commercial standards-based LwM2M server for testing or lab development purposes. Reach out to Friendly for more details.
