Anggota Linux Foundation bentuk konsorsium terbuka untuk standarisasi interoperabilitas Internet of Things


Pemimpin industri teknologi Atmel, Broadcom, Dell, Intel, Samsung Electronics, dan Wind River, telah bergabung untuk membentuk konsorsium industri baru difokuskan pada meningkatkan interoperabilitas dan mendefinisikan persyaratan konektivitas untuk miliaran perangkat yang akan membuat Internet of Things (IoT). Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC) difokuskan pada mendefinisikan kerangka komunikasi umum (common framework) yang didasarkan pada standar industri teknologi untuk terhubung secara nirkabel dan pengelolaan aliran informasi yang cerdas di antara komputasi personal dan perangkat IoT yang muncul, terlepas dari faktor bentuk, sistem operasi atau penyedia layanan.

Anggota perusahaan akan memberikan kontribusi software dan engineering resource untuk pengembangan spesifikasi protokol, implementasi open source, dan program sertifikasi, semua dengan pemandangan percepatan pengembangan IoT. Spesifikasi OIC akan mencakup berbagai solusi konektivitas, memanfaatkan standar nirkabel yang ada dan muncul dan akan dirancang agar kompatibel dengan berbagai sistem operasi.

Para pemimpin dari berbagai industri segmen vertikal - dari smart home dan solusi office hingga otomotif dan banyak lagi - akan berpartisipasi dalam program ini. Ini akan membantu memastikan bahwa spesifikasi OIC dan implementasi open source akan membantu desain produk perusahaan yang dikelola dengan cerdas, andal dan aman dan pertukaran informasi dalam kondisi yang berubah, power dan bandwidth, dan bahkan tanpa koneksi internet.

Kode open source pertama OIC akan menargetkan persyaratan tertentu dari smart home dan solusi office. Sebagai contoh, spesifikasi bisa membuatnya sederhana untuk kontrol jarak jauh dan menerima notifikasi dari peralatan smart home atau perangkat enterprise menggunakan smartphone, tablet atau PC yang telah diset secara aman. Solusi konsumen mungkin termasuk kemampuan untuk kontrol jarak jauh sistem peralatan rumah tangga untuk menghemat uang dan menghemat energi. Dalam enterprise, karyawan dan visiting supplier mungkin akan berkolaborasi dengan aman saat berinteraksi dengan layar dan perangkat lain dalam ruang pertemuan. Spesifikasi tambahan untuk peluang IoT yang baru termasuk otomotif, kesehatan dan industri yang diharapkan untuk mengikuti.

"Open source adalah tentang kolaborasi dan tentang pilihan. Open Interconnect Consortium adalah satu lagi titik bukti bagaimana open source membantu untuk mendorong inovasi," kata Jim Zemlin, direktur eksekutif di Linux Foundation. "Kami berharap untuk kontribusi OIC dalam membina lingkungan terbuka untuk mendukung miliaran perangkat terhubung online yang datang."

Anggota perusahaan tambahan termasuk produsen peralatan rumah tangga terkemuka dan produsen perangkat lainnya, layanan dan penyedia solusi, produsen chipset dan lebih banyak lagi diharapkan untuk bergabung dengan OIC dalam beberapa bulan mendatang.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 8, 2014 – Technology industry leaders Atmel Corporation, Broadcom Corporation, Dell, Intel Corporation, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., and Wind River, are joining forces to establish a new industry consortium focused on improving interoperability and defining the connectivity requirements for the billions of devices that will make up the Internet of Things (IoT). The Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC) is focused on defining a common communications framework based on industry standard technologies to wirelessly connect and intelligently manage the flow of information among personal computing and emerging IoT devices, regardless of form factor, operating system or service provider.

Member companies will contribute software and engineering resources to the development of a protocol specification, open source implementation, and a certification program, all with a view of accelerating the development of the IoT. The OIC specification will encompass a range of connectivity solutions, utilizing existing and emerging wireless standards and will be designed to be compatible with a variety of operating systems.

Leaders from a broad range of industry vertical segments – from smart home and office solutions to automotive and more – will participate in the program. This will help ensure that OIC specifications and open source implementations will help companies design products that intelligently, reliably and securely manage and exchange information under changing conditions, power and bandwidth, and even without an Internet connection.

The first OIC open source code will target the specific requirements of smart home and office solutions. For example, the specifications could make it simple to remotely control and receive notifications from smart home appliances or enterprise devices using securely provisioned smartphones, tablets or PCs. Possible consumer solutions include the ability to remotely control household systems to save money and conserve energy. In the enterprise, employees and visiting suppliers might securely collaborate while interacting with screens and other devices in a meeting room. Specifications for additional IoT opportunities including automotive, healthcare and industrial are expected to follow.

“Open source is about collaboration and about choice. The Open Interconnect Consortium is yet another proof point how open source helps to fuel innovation,” said Jim Zemlin, executive director of The Linux Foundation. “We look forward to the OIC’s contribution in fostering an open environment to support the billions of connected devices coming online.”

Additional member companies including other leading appliance and device manufacturers, service and solution providers, chipset manufacturers and more are expected to join OIC in the coming months. For more information, visit www.openinterconnect.org.
