Whether you’re new to managing cellular IoT sensors or not, find out how the Lightweight M2M (LwM2M) protocol offers an advanced, secure solution for simplifying the management of your sensor estate.
Device management is an essential part of any deployment of cellular IoT sensors.
It allows you to efficiently manage a fleet of connected objects, monitor their status, configure settings and update firmware centrally and remotely.
With the right device management protocol, you can simplify and automate these tasks, without having to physically intervene on each device, improving the operational efficiency and performance of your sensors.
Adeunis has chosen the LwM2M (Lightweight M2M) protocol as the device management solution for its range of cellular sensors.
LwM2M is an Open Mobile Alliance protocol specifically designed for operational management, data feedback, provisioning and lifecycle management of machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
Specifically designed for connected devices with constraints (computing capacity, memory space), the LwM2M protocol is based on :

LwM2M offers lightweight, secure and efficient communication between connected objects and a management server, enabling you to manage your sensors centrally, simplifying their configuration, monitoring and maintenance.
The LwM2M protocol offers many advantages for maintaining Adeunis sensors in operational condition, even in low-power, low-bandwidth environments.
Simplify the management of your fleet and reduce your operating costs.
Thanks to the LwM2M protocol, you benefit from complete management of your cellular IoT sensors, even if they are spread across different sites, without the need to physically intervene on site.
Whether you have a few sensors or a large-scale deployment, the LwM2M protocol offers great scalability. It enables you to manage a large number of cellular IoT sensors efficiently, making it easier to grow your IoT infrastructure.
As part of an IoT project, you may need to equip your site with devices from different manufacturers, using different communication technologies and protocols. This can lead to problems of interoperability and compatibility between devices. By providing an open and interoperable standard, the LwM2M protocol enables Adeunis sensors to communicate seamlessly with devices from different manufacturers. This facilitates system integration, data collection and analysis from multiple sources, and allows centralised management without the complications of incompatibility.
Adeunis’ cellular IoT sensors are designed to be energy-efficient so that they can operate for several years without an external power supply, and the LwM2M protocol is perfectly suited to these constraints. LwM2M uses small control and management messages, minimising the energy consumption of your sensors.
The LwM2M protocol natively supports the DTLS, TLS and OSCORE protocols, and incorporates robust security mechanisms such as mutual key authentication, data encryption and authorisation mechanisms, ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of information exchanged between the management server and Adeunis sensors.
At Adeunis, we understand the importance of choosing the right device management platform to support your deployments. That’s why we have tested the integration of our sensors with several market-leading device management platforms. These integration tests allow us to ensure optimal compatibility and interoperability between our Adeunis cellular sensors and the Device Management platforms listed below:

Adeunis IoT sensors are equipped with advanced technologies that guarantee optimum performance and high reliability.
Our team of experts is on hand to answer your questions and guide you through the use of our sensors. We are committed to providing you with an exceptional customer experience at every stage of your project.
Adeunis sensors are designed to collect specific data in the field, such as energy consumption, environmental data and data relating to the operation of building equipment.
The data is sent via a cellular IoT network (NB-IoT or LTE-Cat-M1) to an LwM2M server. No additional equipment (gateway, router, etc.) is required for data transmission. The LwM2M protocol offers secure, lightweight communication adapted to Adeunis battery-powered sensors.
The LwM2M server receives the data sent by the sensor. It is responsible for sensor management, authentication, registration, parameter updating and data collection.
Once the data has been processed, the server can transfer it to a third-party platform for more advanced business data management. Users can extract useful information from the data collected by the sensors to make informed decisions and optimise business operations.
