At the Mobile World Congress, the EEBus Initiative and Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) jointly demonstrate with real devices how global interoperability works
February 22, 2016
Mobile World Congress – Barcelona, Spain
Last year two of the leading alliances for a standardized internet of things: The U.S. American Open Connectivity Foundation and the European EEBus Initiative joined forces. On the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona both alliances present for the first time how this collaboration works in real life. The OCF Connectivity concept and the EEBus data model complement each other and can jointly power the interoperability of the IoT in the future. This year’s OCF Booth (IoT Pavilion 8.0C35.) features a live demonstrator showing the interoperability of the EEBus with the presented OCF devices. The demonstrated Use Case shows a Wolf boiler using the smart connection over an Intel Gateway to a Honeywell thermostat, to adapt to the user’s heating preferences. This of course is just one fragment of that what will be feasible within the EEBus-OCF cooperation in the future.

IoT Consortium Releases New Developer Tools and Reaches Milestone of More Than 150 Members
February 10, 2016. Portland, Oregon – Today, the Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC) announced the availability an important update for developers that will help organizations swiftly navigate the OIC’s resources to quickly take advantage of the technologies and infrastructure developed, furthering standardization for the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT can only scale and be truly realized when all “things” are capable of interacting with each other regardless of their underlying technology. oneIoTa and OIC are the first to deliver on this promise.
