Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP)
The Mbed Cloud 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.
OMA Lightweight M2M (LwM2M)
The OMA’s LwM2M provides device management protocols optimized for constrained IoT devices. With help of these protocols you can manage IoT devices remotely, provision security credentials, and update over-the-air. LwM2M enables interworking between compatible clients and servers, and standards-based protocols are the key preventing vendor lock-ins.
