Fast-Track Your IoT Projects with IOWA

IOWA is an award-winning software development kit (SDK) dedicated to helping organizations build efficient IoT device management solutions faster than ever. Best known for its remarkably small footprint and clean code, IOWA allows development teams to speed up development without having to build device's firmware from the ground up. Its flexible, prepackaged code instantly enables device management capabilities on your IoT device. Bootstrapping, communication enciphering, data collection, remote configuration and firmware updates are few of the capabilities you can unlock with IOWA. 

Small and Mighty

IOWA has been through rigorous testing to ensure its strict adherence to LwM2M specifications, and features a full implementation of LwM2M 1.2, 1.1, and 1.0 within the smallest stack possible. It also supports server-side implementations, including OSCORE and all DTLS/TLS libraries.

Custom-created for devices that require low power consumption or affordability, IOWA’s unmatchably small footprint and compact code at 40KB flash and 5KB RAM is written to allow devices to live up to 20 years on a single battery. This equates to significant savings in operational maintenance, energy consumption, and network utilization, meaning that IOWA offers both present-day and long-term value.

IOWA gives organizations the ability to reduce their stack size, time to market, security risk and liability while focusing their resources on their core capabilities.
