Creating a connected world calls for close collaboration across the value chain and we are pleased to report strong and growing interest from a number of the leading network operators, systems integrators, application developers and platform providers that attended the world's biggest mobile event - Mobile World Congress (MWC).
According to the organisers, GSMA, over 93,000 delegates from over 200 countries attended the event that took place in Barcelona from 2-6 March, 2015. The key theme at MWC was the tremendous potential of wireless Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications and the Internet of Things (IoT). Gartner estimates the number of connected devices will grow from 4.9 billion in 2015 to 25 billion in 2020. IDC projects that the global market for IoT solutions will go from $1.9T in 2013 to $7.1T in 2020. GSMA estimates cellular M2M connections to reach one billion in 2020.
We showcased our latest technologies including the recently launched n-Hub, a new healthcare innovation that enables the remote management of diverse mHealth devices, and successfully demonstrated the implementation of our OMA Lightweight M2M (LWM2M) protocol.
The demonstration involved an existing NetComm Wireless M2M LTE router (NTC-140W) running the embedded LWM2M client to support remote device management via the open-source LWM2M server running on a notebook at the demo station. All of the existing OMA LWM2M data objects from the v1.0 specification were implemented, illustrating comprehensive remote device management functionality such as: device registration, configuration, monitoring, firmware update, remote reboot and much more.
NetComm Wireless is a member of the 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.
