Device Management Connect

Device Management Connect addresses the complexity of reliably connecting high volumes of IoT devices across different networks, by any device vendor, with high availability.

Securely connect, register and configure your devices to Pelion Device Management and enable the use of cloud applications on a public or private service of your choice, or deploy as an on-premises solution.

Leverage the benefits of using open standards by utilizing OMA LwM2M, CoAP and TLS DTLS protocols optimized for constrained devices.

Ensure better availability, with access data collected from devices even if they are temporarily disconnected.

Simple, Secure and Energy Efficient Connectivity

Device Management Connect enables unified connectivity from cloud applications, through Pelion Device Management and on to devices, and provides industry standard end-to-end transport security. It enables IoT device communication via REST APIs to enterprise software and web applications.

Full Control and Device Management via REST API

Once the device is securely connected Device Management Connect, making them visible within Pelion Device Management communication can be enabled using the REST API.

The REST API is the interface that configures Device Management and performs device management actions. The API is based on the RESTful paradigm: providing a consistent view of API Resources, and support for CRUDL operations (Create, Read, Update, Delete and List). Requests and responses use HTTP methods (GET, PUT, POST and DELETE). All Pelion Device Management services are accessible via the REST API

Robust Management of Constrained Devices

  • Device Management Client Lite is the client profile optimized for constrained devices - specifically, cost-sensitive devices with limited code space and processing capabilities.
  • These devices typically serve single-function applications with possible multiple sensors/actuators and their data processing and operations capability is limited.
  • Device Management Client Lite profile offers many benefits.
Components of Device Management Connect

The Device Management Connect service communicates with devices over CoAP, a specialized communication protocol for use with constrained nodes and constrained networks in the Internet of Things. Through the service, you can communicate with the device, register and deregister devices and subscribe to resources to receive notifications. The service supports both real-time and proxied communication with devices and uses LwM2M resources to organize the communications.
