Smart homes, Connected cars, Intelligent factories. At the heart of all of these clever technologies is an interconnected network of devices known as the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT is headed to a tipping point. By some estimates, there will be 50 billion ‘things’ communicating with each other or the Internet by 2020, so Become Part of IoT Standardization with IoTivity.
The rapid development of the IoT market has caused an explosion in the number of IoT solutions. If there’s one thing the Internet of Things needs, it’s a common framework for allowing devices to securely and reliably connect to one another and share. IoTivity is the latest attempt at such a standard, and it brings open-source principles to the fore.
In the current situation value will be delivered by apps & services and these services need access to data & control points to deliver that value, but on the other hand, developers find it difficult to access all the data and control points. Due to which use cases are more complicated. The system and therefore communication needs to achieve massive scale. The current solution must work across form factors, OSS platforms, manufacturers, service providers, and vertical markets and also scale from constrained devices to smart devices to the Cloud.
Foreseeing the end of the IoT Standardization chaos isn’t easy, but industry collaboration goes a long way in achieving success and continued innovation. There are multiple proposals and forums driving different approaches but no single solution addresses the majority of key requirements.
OCF stands for “Open Connectivity Foundation” and its goal is to create a standard flexible framework that gets all these gadgets to securely talk to each other regardless of manufacturer, operating system, chipset, or transport. OCF/IoTivity addressing challenges of IoT are:
So now is the time to join and contribute to the OCF community for better enhancement in the connected era. For more information on OCF/IoTivity, contact us at [email protected]
