The Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) and FIWARE Foundation are joining their forces to form a mutually beneficial partnership which provides members from both organisations with increased access to data models and standards that support the development of secure, interoperable Internet of Things (IoT) deployments.
Two Global IoT Standards Organization are successfully working on developing smart cities and smart homes and smart buildings to make them more sustainable. The OCF is bringing a comprehensive set of smart home and smart building models to the table, across areas including air quality testing, carbon dioxide detection and blood pressure monitoring. Whereas FIWARE Foundation provides access to its building blocks, reference architectures, smart city and industrial models.
As an ISO/IEC adopted standard, the OCF’s framework is internationally agreed upon by experts and is gaining adoption as a national standard in countries worldwide. With the OCF adopting FIWARE’s data models, in time, these too will be brought into the ISO/IEC standard.
It is truly exciting that over 65 data models defined by the OCF have already been made available in FIWARE’s Smart Data Models Program, with more than 200 soon to be adopted – contributing to the over 800 smart data models already provided through the FIWARE-driven program.
