Sequans Named a Partner in NTT Docomo’s IoT Device Management Program
December 14, 2018

NTT Docomo has rolled out the Docomo IoT Device Management Program – a program established to monitor and maintain the operation of cellular IoT communication modules using the Lightweight M2M (LwM2M)* protocol on Docomo’s network.   The new program unifies and collectively manages the status and maintenance of modules used by corporate customers for modules built into home appliances, construction equipment, vending machines, and many other IoT applications.

Sequans has been named a partner in the Docomo program IoT Device Management Program, because its Monarch LTE for IoT chip is compliant with the LwM2M specification and other Docomo requirements. Sequans and NTT Docomo established a partnership to accelerate the adoption of LTE-M and NB-IoT in Japan last year and have been collaborating for several years.

IoT requires central management of a large number of devices and the new Docomo IoT Device Management Program provides great value to Docomo customers by ensuring that chips and modules offered in the program meet Docomo’s  high standards for performance and reliability. Customers are able to manage devices directly through a smartly-designed web interface.

Sequans’ industry-leading Monarch LTE-M/NB-IoT Platform has been approved for use by operators around the world, including Japan, USA, Europe.

*Lightweight M2M (LwM2M) is a communication protocol for use between client software on M2M devices and server software on an M2M management and service platform. The protocol is defined by the Open Mobile Alliance and built to provide a means to remotely perform service enablement and application management for IoT devices and connected appliances.
