The event has now closed. You can watch a replay of the webinar above.


Speaker presentation slides are also available on the OMA SlideShare account:


Videos for each speaker are now posted under the “Videos” tab above, so you can replay the Workshop in sections!


Look out for an email in the next week where you can download the presentation slides as well as watch the video recording of each speaker today!


Thank you for joining us today! We appreciate you tuning in!


Narang has clarified the DLMS question:

“This is for Smart meters, DLMS has a very structured approach to identify”


Question from Senthil:

“How do we make everyone follow standards? We have seen Apple, Google did not follow OMA DM and came up with propreitary solutions.”


Question: Have you reviewed the Object modeling in DLMS ? ? ?


All of today’s speakers will be answering questions shortly…


Michael Koster from ARM is now on the top “IPSO Alliance Objects”. Up next, Svante Alnas from Sony Mobile will be our final speaker.


Want to know more about each of speakers from today’s Workshop? Bio’s here:



“is there any C sample LWM2M/COAP application available to understand the flow of communication between server and client ?”


Question from Christian Antonia:

“Do you provide firmware update package for those OMA labkit components?”


OMA GitHub link:


As a reminder, the Workshop is being recorded and the slides will be available for download. We will email out to all participants when this becomes available.


Question from Wang Xin:

“What is the bluetooth software stack used in this demo? I assume different bluetooth chip makers will provide different BT software. Can HOP smoothly integerate with different bluetooth software stacks?”


Question from Teresa Zotti:

“Is the IPv6 solution implemented related to the IETF draft-6lo-btle or is something else? (any further detail/reference on this would be interesting)”


Question: “I missed the first 40 minutes of the work shop. Could some one tell me about the dev tool Matthias Kovatsch used. Is it avilable as a firefox plugin or do one have to compile it as a plug in.”

Answer: Yes! This information will be available in Matthias’ slides. Link is here:


A few more questions that came in before the break…

From Vodafone: “are they commercial product that using wakama stack?”

From Olivier Guyot: “what are the drawbacks of COAP vs TCP ?”


Here we go again! Antonio Jara and his team will present the OMA LwM2M Lab Kit and try a LwM2M Demo!


Break is until 11:15 – then we are back with much more to share!


We are taking a quick break. We’re out of time for any more questions at this time. We will save some questions for the end and input your questions and send out the link to our community tool this afternoon where our speakers and others can participate in answering!


Question from Wang Xin:

“a C implementation of lwm2m client is important since many client device is resource restraint. any plan to integrate the coap 18 in the wakama?”


Thanks for sharing Carlos:

“Not spamming, just for everyone’s info: At Telefonica I D we’re providing an opensource #LwM2M client/server node.js library based on It’s here:”


Question from Teresa Zotti:

“Does Californium implement CoRE Resource Directory?”


Question from Teresa Zotti:

“Via which mechanism is it possible in LWM2M to discover the Objects supported in a device? If I retrieve the unique object ID of one Object (that might be a kind of “proprietary” extension), how do I know its properties?”


There is no Twitter hashtag for this event, we will note this interest to make one for next time! We are tweeting under #LwM2M if you want to join in there!


Question from Saritha:

“Do you have the implementation of the standard OMA objects like location update, Firmware Update”


Question from Pedram:

“if you have Contiki Network, what kind of NMS is recommended?”


Question from Pedram:

“Is there any chance to implement lwm2m on 6lowpan?”


Question from Sathiskumar Palaniappan:

“Do you have the implementation of the standard OMA objects like Device, Firmware Update and etc. for different devices, like Arduino, Raspberry pi and etc..”


Question from suleyman YALCINKAYA from vodafone TURKEY:

“social applications -like twitter, facebook- will communicate with M2M clients what is the future of social machines? on M2M and M2H CoAP will support this type communications?”


Question from Thierry Sorgnard:

“the advantage of restful/ http like model is to allow intermediation components (like proxy, for caching based on verbs…, filtering, ….enhancing content). Is it possible with CoAP?”


Question from Suleyman YALCINKAYA from vodafone TURKEY”

“m2m protocol standardization and in the IoT Space in near future there will be common protocol for m2m client-server interface?”


We will have a few minutes to answer questions before the coffee break at 11:00, here are some we have received so far…


Question from Carlos Ralli Ucendo:

“Does copper support coals (Coap over DTLS) ?”

Answer direct from Matthias Kovatsch: “No, but we are talking to Mozilla about making their DTLS implementation scriptable, maybe during this year.”


Pardon us on that last message, it’s meant to read:

“OMA does NOT yet have a determined release date for the server…”



OMA does yet have a determined release date for the server. We will first see how the industry is taking the Client and plan to develop the release around the end of Q1 this year.


Question from Stefan Gonnet:

When will the server emulation be released?


Here is the OMA GitHub link that Matthias is referring to:


Here is the link to the technical summary Joaquin Prado from OMA was speaking to:


We are receiving your questions – they will be released as we have time to answer questions throughout the Workshop!


You can follow along with us and tweet to us @OpenMobileA !


We will save your questions from Friedhelm’s presentation for the Q&A at the end at 13:15, this speaker is out of time!


Due to live streaming restrictions within Germany and under German law, we are sorry to say some participants may not be able to access the live stream. The recorded version and slides presented will be available for download later.


Hi all! We are working on looking to increase the volume of the speakers now! Thanks for letting us know.


Presentations are available for download at and Video playback will be available shortly after the conclusion of the event at


We have now gone on a break, we will resume with the panel session at 15:50 PST.


Apologies for the quality. If you have any questions for Mark at Axway, please send through and we will endeavour to get answers.


We will be back on in approximately 5 minutes.


We have now gone to a break, the next session from John Wilmes – TM Forum which will begin at 14:05 PST.


Michele Burgers mentioned reference implementations. How important do the other panellists think that reference implementations of specifications are to adoption of a standard in their products?


The next panel discussion will start shortly, please feel free to post your questions here.


We have asked the question, “What value can standardization bring to the OTT app developer?” But I would like to know what value standardization brings to companies like Twilio or IMSworkX? Does it help or hurt their business?


Which is the business case with respect to the operators? Who pays who?


We have now gone to a break. The next session from Brian Mullen- Twilio on ‘Evolution of de facto API’s and their uptake’, will begin at 10:50 PST.


We think of OTT as an application that runs on top of the operator network in some real-time fashion. Does the cloud architecture potentially change the way OTT applications will work in the future?


The panel discussion will begin shortly-please feel free to post your questions here.


In a world where the retail price of a mobile application is between free and one euro, is there a way for the operator to monetize the investment they would have to open the Network APIs to the OTTs?


What is preventing the mobile ecosystem from adopting an OTT business model like the cable operators or FedEx have?


Camillo proposes re-coupling the application layer and the network. Who has to take the next step for that to happen. Does the operator have to create the supply first or does the OTT have to create the demand first?


A question for Camillo -who categorises the apps?


The OMA smart networks seminar will be starting in approximately 15 minutes at 9:00 PST, with the keynote speech by Bob Bergman.
