IPSO And Open Mobile Form OMA SpecWorks

The Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) and the IPSO Alliance (IPSO) announced today that IPSO has transferred its assets, work and memberships to the OMA, forming a joint organization called OMA SpecWorks. All technical working groups from IPSO and OMA remain active and are tasked with creating and driving a set of global technical deliverables in the mobile and internet of things (IoT) services layer. OMA SpecWorks leverages OMA’s vast experience to allow developers to quickly transform an idea into an industry specification and then manage the specification's publication and maintenance.

 

OMA SpecWorks delivers a streamlined approach to standards development focused on the needs of its working groups, which are given a high level of autonomy. Members of a working group define their own cadence and work style to fit what best achieves the technical goals of their group. The OMA SpecWorks process is focused on enabling working groups to create quality technical outputs.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.

 

A global forum comprising a diverse international membership of companies and nonprofit organizations, IPSO’s work focuses on promoting the use of Internet protocol (IP) for smart objects and defining a smart-object framework for the IoT, with an emphasis on identity and privacy.

 

The OMA has delivered more than 200 technical specifications since 2002, enabling interoperability across geographies and network technologies in the mobile wireless and IoT markets. With specifications spanning messaging, location, network and device APIs, push-to-talk, device management (DM) and more, the OMA DM specification alone has been deployed in over 2 billion devices. As part of OMA SpecWorks, the organization will leverage its strong heritage to facilitate development of the next generation of wireless and IoT technology specifications.
