San Diego, CA – May 16, 2018 – OMA SpecWorks announced today that registration is open for their July 9 to July 12, 2018 TestFest event. The TestFest will be hosted by the Telecommunications Technology Association (TTA) in Seoul (Pangyo), South Korea at the Global IoT Testing and Certification Center (TTA facility). Pangyo is the city of IoT industry in South Korea and is leading the IDC Asia / Pacific 2017 IoT readiness index, this complex offers excellent opportunities for the IoT industry globally.
Testing will take place Monday, July 9 through Thursday, July 12 from 9:00 to 18:00 daily. Registration for the TestFest is open to the public through Friday, June 7. The TestFest is open to any organization including both OMA members and non-members for testing client or server implementations of LightweightM2M (LwM2M), as well as any OMA Enabler for which there are three clients and three servers registered.
“The first LwM2M TestFest in South Korea will provide a great opportunity to ensure interoperability for vendors,” said Yongbum Park, Director at TTA. “TTA is trying to create an IoT ecosystem based on LwM2M, such as the development of a conformance test specification and the launch of a Korean LwM2M certification program, as well as hosting the TestFest. We strongly believe that this work will help to disseminate LwM2M worldwide.”
“OMA SpecWorks continues building on its successful TestFest program with a new test event planned in Seoul (Pangyo), South Korea. Our event host, TTA, is doing interesting work in this space, and we are looking forward to the attendance of local companies ready to test their LwM2M implementations for the first time at a TestFest event”, said Joaquin Prado, Director of Technical Programs at OMA SpecWorks.

About LightweightM2M (LwM2M)
OMA SpecWorks’ LightweightM2M is a device management protocol designed for sensor networks and the demands of a machine-to-machine (M2M) environment. With LwM2M, OMA SpecWorks has responded to demand in the market for a common standard for managing lightweight and low power devices on a variety of networks necessary to realize the potential of the Internet of Things (IoT). The LwM2M protocol, designed for remote management of IoT devices and related service enablement, features a modern architectural design based on REST, defines an extensible resource and data model and builds on an efficient secure data transfer standard called the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP). LwM2M has been specified by a group of industry experts at the OMA SpecWorks Device Management Working Group and is based on protocol and security standards from the IETF.
