Implementing LWM2M in Constrained IoT Devices

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

Lightweight M2M (LWM2M) is a system standard in the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA). It aims to develop a fast deployable client-server specification to provide machine to machine (M2M) services. It acts as an OMA device management (OMA-DM) successor for use in M2M and provides efficient device management as well as security workflow for IoT applications using the same protocol, thus offering enhanced simplicity. It also addresses service and management needs of constrained M2M devices over a number of transports and bearers. The LWM2M specification provides APIs for device configuration, connectivity monitoring/statistics, security, firmware update, server provisioning and so on. The widely used Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) provides in-built binding for LWM2M, thus making it particularly appealing for the Internet of Things (IoT).

Addressing IoT’s Impact on Software Engineering

whitePaper |

The Internet of Things is a paradigm that is impacting our daily life – for the good and bad – today. IoT software needs security by design; for this reason, it must be a business imperative. Manufacturers must carefully evaluate the cyber threats and the level of exposure of IoT devices, implementing all the necessary design checks and countermeasures to respond to an accelerating set of menaces. GrammaTech was founded 26 years ago, with a firmly-grounded purpose to help organizations develop tomorrow’s software. Given the ever-increasing dependence of software in today’s connected world, our experts are focusing on solving the most challenging software issues through a thorough portfolio of software and security assurance solutions.

Communication for the Industrial Internet of Things

whitePaper |

The term Internet of Things (IoT) first surfaced a few years ago. At its core, it describes a scenario where intelligent devices communicate with each other to enhance functionality and improve operational efficiency without any human interaction. IoT devices have a physical interface to the real world that enables them to capture, analyze and act on all kinds of data. These devices can learn about their environment and adapt to it; communicate and cooperate with one another; and perform very specific functions within a specific context. Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applies to application areas, like factory automation, process automation, energy infrastructure or transportation. While the idea and vision behind it are the same as in other areas, deterministic behavior, cyber security and redundancy are some of the aspects that are especially important for the IIoT.

Internet of Things Industry Use Cases

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects, devices, vehicles, buildings and other items which are embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data. The Internet of Things allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more-direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit;when IoT is augmented with sensors and actuators, the technology becomes an instance of the more general class of cyber physical systems, which also encompasses technologies such as smart grids, smart homes, intelligent transportation and smart cities. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure. Experts estimate that the IoT will consist of almost 50 billion objects by 2020.
