Tzvi Skapinker of Friendly Technologies

IoT device and data management company, Friendly Technologies, has release its Professional Embedded LwM2M Client and associated SDK as free open-source software (FOSS) project.

The LwM2M Client is mainly targeted at Internet of Things (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 says, “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. Organisations that require further support or project assistance can count on the professional services team at Friendly Technologies to assist in realising a solution to meet their specific needs.

Ilan Migdal, the company’s CEO, says, “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 utilising this professional client in their own IoT device developments. As an innovation organisation 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.
