Device management is a key, but often overlooked, requirement for IoT deployments. Lightweight M2M (LwM2M) is the leading device management protocol, particularly used for devices deployed with constrained connectivity or power consumption. It has seen some adoption in particular use cases, including smart metering and smart cities.
This report explores the capabilities of LwM2M and provides Transforma Insights’ view on how rapidly it is likely to be adopted in IoT. It also considers the other options for device management, including proprietary vendor systems, OMA-DM and TR-069 and TR-369.
