OCF & OMA Ink Liaison Agreement

September 06, 2017

The Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) and the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA), have started a liaison agreement for working on device management for IoT. This agreement will explore collaboration involving OMA’s LightweightM2M (LwM2M) standard, a device management protocol designed for sensor networks and the demands of a machine-to-machine (M2M) environment, with OCF Specifications.

Device Management allows network operators, service providers or corporate information management departments to carry out end user device configuration procedures. OCF’s strategic collaboration with OMA brings a mature and established solution for remote management of IoT devices and reinforces OCF’s role as a driving force for harmonization and consolidation within IoT interconnectivity.

“OCF had a need to address the standardization of device management to identify expertise in all connected verticals and create a comprehensive solution for the IoT,” said John Park, executive director of OCF. “We are excited to work with a well-established solution that addresses interconnectivity within the mobile industry, and continue our momentum toward unlocking the full potential of the IoT.”

“With LwM2M, OMA has responded to demand in the IoT market for a common standard for managing lightweight and low power devices on a variety of networks necessary to realize seamless interoperability,” said Seth Newberry, General Manager at OMA. “OMA recognizes the importance of working with other organizations and standards bodies to ensure broad industry participation.”
