OMA Lightweight M2M is a protocol from the Open Mobile Alliance for M2M or IoT device management. Lightweight M2M enabler defines the application layer communication protocol between a LwM2M Server and a LwM2M Client, which is located in a LwM2M Device. The OMA Lightweight M2M enabler includes device management and service enablement for LwM2M Devices. The target LwM2M Devices for this enabler are mainly resource-constrained devices. Therefore, this enabler makes use of a light and compact protocol as well as an efficient resource data model. It provides a choice for the M2M Service Provider to deploy a M2M system to provide service to the M2M User. It is frequently used with CoAP[1].

OMA Lightweight M2M is designed to:

  • Provide Device Management functionality over sensor or cellular networks
  • Transfer service data from the network to devices
  • Extend to meet the requirements of most any application
