Bringing de-facto standards and Open Source to create a sustainable market
of interoperable and portable Smart Cities solutions
Moving from vision to execution
With an urban population on the rise, creating livable environments in which people and businesses can thrive has become one of today’s most pressing issues.
In answer to this challenge, an increasing number of cities and metropolitan areas are embracing the “Smart City” concept: efficient infrastructure with an information network, eco-friendly mobility, creativity, and high productivity.
With FIWARE, cities can achieve this transformation with minimum effort but great impact, by adopting common standard APIs and information models.
The transformation journey
Becoming Truly Smart
Our Reference Architecture for Smart Cities breaks vertical silos, building a Context Info Management layer that provides a holistic picture of what is going on in the city. By making city data public and merging data from multiple verticals, city-level governance systems can be enhanced.

One city, no matter how big, or a few cities are not a sizeable market. Many cities adopting the same de-facto standards for interoperability and replicability is a sizeable market.
FIWARE is an open source initiative defining a universal set of standards for context data management which facilitate the development of Smart Solutions for different domains. The Orion Context Broker is its core component. Selected in 2018 by the European Commission as a Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Building Block, it gathers, manages and provides access to context information coming from different sources describing what is going on in a city. Coupled with a set of additional FIWARE components, the Orion Context Broker facilitates:
The interaction between IoT sensors and other devices, as well as vertical smart solutions and other information systems.
