Open Connectivity Foundation Sets Charter for IoT

A new Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) is underway with a mission to help unify IoT standards so that companies and developers can create IoT solutions and devices that work seamlessly together. 

The OCF unifies the entirety of the former Open Interconnect Consortium with leading companies at all levels – silicon, software, platform, and finished-goods – dedicated to providing this key interoperability element of an IoT solution. The effort is led by ARRIS, CableLabs, Cisco, Electrolux, GE Digital, Intel, Microsoft, Qualcomm, and Samsung.

The OCF said itss vision for IoT is that billions of connected devices (appliances, phones, computers, industrial equipment) will communicate with one another regardless of manufacturer, operating system, chipset or transport. With the OCF fulfilling this promise, anyone – from a large technology company to a maker in their garage - can adopt the open standards of OCF to innovate and compete, helping ensure secure interoperability for consumers, business, and industry. The Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) is creating a specification and sponsoring an open source project to make this possible.
