Samsung R&D Institute Bengaluru, Nasscom, Intel and L&T created the OCF India Ecosystem Task Force to increase awareness about global IoT standards and its benefits for the Indian IoT Industry. The Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) is an open IoT standards development organisation. As one of the founding members of the OCF, since 2014, Samsung has been contributing to the OCF standards development and also adopting OCF specifications in its IoT device ecosystem.
In 2017, Samsung R&D Bengaluru started working towards setting up a local chapter of the OCF in India. The vision was to drive the Indian IoT industry through the benefits of standardisation and help Indian SMEs generate revenue from IoT services by reducing the lead time for development. The journey began by identifying and reaching out to more than 60 Indian IoT companies including startups developing products and services for the India market to gauge awareness about IoT standards.
