The IoT (Internet of Things) might be a revolution for the industry and for our daily life, with the promise of Smart services for Building, Home, City, Transport, Factory, etc. Orange is already a strong actor in IoT domain with 14,8 millions of objects and 330 millions of data per minute managed by the company.
IoT brings strong interoperability challenges between the different ecosystems of connected objects (OMA LWM2M, LoRa, Zigbee, etc.), the different verticals (Building, City, Factory, etc.) and the different service providers and players.
Openness is key in IoT landscape for ensuring interoperability. Open source is an important driver for faster innovation, faster development cycles. When associated with standards, open source can help in accelerating its emergence and adoption.
Orange contributions in the area of IoT include the collaboration with FIWARE and Eclipse Foundation (Orange is member of Eclipse IoT Working Group).
