1 Overview
This liaison is provided to announce the Approval of the Lightweight Machine 2
Machine version 1.1 (LwM2M v1.1) specifications. The Device Management and
Service Enablement Working Group at OMASpecWorks would like to raise awareness
as well as encourage incorporation of the v1.1 specifications in your work. The
goal of the LwM2M v1.1 specifications is to provide benefit across the industry
for device management as well as for service enablement.

 2 Proposal
LwM2M v1.1 is in approved status, which means it is ready for further test
fests and interop events. The public distribution is available in the

LwM2M Server LwM2M v1.0 works over UDP and SMS transport bindings using CoAP.
The OMASpecWorks DMSE WG coordinates very closely with the IETF Core WG which
is responsible for the standardization activities for CoAP. LwM2M v1.1 was
enhanced to also work over TCP and non-IP transport bindings (3GPP CIoT and

3 Requested Action(s)
The OMASpecWorks DMSE WG encourages the addressed organizations to incorporate
LwM2M v1.1 into the relevant IoT areas of Device Management and Service
Enablement. Organizations such as GSMA, oneM2M and OMASpecWorks IPSO WG have
defined the necessary objects to enable multiple service needs on top of LwM2M.
The OMA Naming Authority (OMNA) which is the object registry can be referred to
for those objects as well the
LwM2M core objects.

4 Conclusion
OMASpecWorks would like to thank your organization for the consideration of
this new version of the LwM2M specification.
