OMA, Arduino and Sierra Wireless to Deliver Workshop for IoT Developers

Free Event Targets Developers, Makers and Robotics Enthusiasts Interested in Machine-to-Machine Protocols and Hardware

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - January 11, 2016) - The Open Mobile Alliance[1] (OMA) today announced they are partnering with Arduino[2] and Sierra Wireless[3] to present a free, one-day workshop for developers of Internet of Things (IoT) products and services. The workshop is targeted at makers, developers, robotics enthusiasts, and others who would like to receive hands-on training with OMA's Lightweight M2M (LwM2M) protocols. The workshop will take place on Friday, January 22 at the DoubleTree by Hilton San Diego -- Mission Valley from 9:00AM until 3:00PM.

Field engineers from sponsor companies, Arduino and Sierra Wireless, will guide attendees step-by-step on how to install an OMA LwM2M client on a platform, open a connection with the OMA LwM2M server and read and manipulate sensor values exposed by the OMA LwM2M client.

Attendees will have the chance to work with one of two platforms, including Eclipse Foundation's Wakaama client on the new mangOH™ hardware platform (a project led by Sierra Wireless)[4] or an Arduino YÚN[5]. Hardware platforms are limited and will only be distributed to the first 50 attendees to show up at the event. For more information or to register for this free workshop, see[6].

About OMA LwM2M

Lightweight M2M (LWM2M) from the Open Mobile Alliance is fast becoming the global industry standard for M2M device management for the development of a fast, deployable, client-server specification to provide machine-to-machine service. The LwM2M Client is installed in a hardware platform and exposes sensor information to a remote LwM2M Server. OMA has also constructed an OMA LwM2M Developer Toolkit[7] to assist developer and makers in understanding and using these specifications.

About Open Mobile Alliance (OMA)

OMA is the wireless industry's focal point for the development of mobile service enabler specifications, which support the creation of interoperable end-to-end mobile services. From requirements to specifications to implementations, OMA enables service architectures and open interfaces that are independent of the underlying wireless networks and platforms and that work across devices, service providers, networks, and geographies.
