Device Management refers to the management of Device configuration and other managed objects of Devices from the point of view of the Management Authorities. Device Management includes, but is not restricted to setting initial configuration information in Devices, subsequent updates of persistent information in Devices, retrieval of management information from Devices, execute primitives on Devices, and processing events and alarms generated by Devices.
Device Management allows network operators, service providers or corporate information management departments to carry out the procedures of configuring devices on behalf of the end user (customer).
OMA DM Version 2.0 reuses the Management Objects which are designed for OMA DM Version 1.3 or earlier DM Protocols. OMA DM Version 2.0 introduces the new Client-Server DM protocol and a new user interaction method for Device Management using the Web Browser Component.
