The OSGi Alliance started more than 20 years ago with the mission to develop specifications for connected homes and buildings – something we now consider part of the Internet of Things. Over the last couple of months, we have worked on an update of our IoT vision that describes challenges and requirements, and how OSGi addresses these in the chaotic IoT standards landscape. The challenges and requirements are not necessarily all new, but the ever-growing IoT landscape now requires more than ever standards to ensure that IoT solutions are economically and technically sustainable, maintainable, agile and evolvable over many decades. The OSGi Alliance with its specification for standardized software modularity and life-cycle management, connectivity of IoT devices, device management and software provisioning have been industry proven for many years with millions of deployments. The IoT Expert Group will continue to work on new specifications such as interoperability with oneM2M and support for real-time environments.
Please review the OSGi Alliance IoT vision and give us your
feedback. Should you feel that we are on the right track, please join us to help make sustainable IoT solutions a reality.
