Friendly Technologies Simplifies IoT

Today Friendly Technologies published the white paper, “What is IoT? Understanding IoT Protocols, Clients, and Servers.”

“IoT” is a broad and somewhat unspecific term, and everyone seems to have a different notion of what it is. This paper’s purpose is to put some basic IoT and Device Management concepts and terms in order. The paper also discusses technologies available in the world of IoT and defines when each protocol should be used, providing an overview of the advantages and disadvantages of each one from the perspective of Device Management and IoT.

After reading this paper, you should have a deeper understanding of what IoT is, have a greater grasp of standard IoT protocols and clients, and be able to choose the appropriate type of client for specific IoT scenarios. This paper should provide an added value to the following types of companies: device manufacturers (OEMs), carriers, CSPs, IoT companies and system integrators, and IoT platform providers.

Among the topics covered in this paper are:

  • Standard protocols – LWM2M, MQTT, OMA-DM, and TR-069.
  • When to use which protocol.
  • The process of deploying embedded clients on the devices.
  • How to manage constrained devices.
  • How to manage large-scale deployments of IoT devices.
  • Managing Data collection and Analytics.
  • Friendly’s One-IoT™ Management platform and embedded clients.

The paper was published due to the high demand resulting from the recent run webinar series, “Understanding IoT”.
