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).

  1. pyDCOP is a library implementing many Distributed Constraints OPtimization (DCOP) algorithms. Its goal is to foster academic research on DCOP by providing an easy to use library to help researcher studying and benchmarking DCOP algorithms and building new ones. pyDCOP is use-case agnostic : it can be embedded in other application to implement distributed coordination […]

  2. The LoRa® Explorer Kit is a development board powered by Microchip that allows easy and quick prototyping of IoT objects and services using LoRa® technology. This very compact starter kit consists of an Arduino-based platform supporting LoRa® module, Bluetooth module, PCB antenna, rechargeable coin battery and temperature sensor. It is pre-configured to access to the […]

  3. Orange Labs present Le Switch Tuner – an application that gives you an opportunity to listen to major French radio channels from your smartphone transformed into a transistor radio, thanks to cardboard and two buttons: one for the stations, another for the volume. See how it works on this video demonstration (in French). Cardboard kit “Le switch”. […]

  4. OpenLPWA IoT Agent is a java library that serves as a bridge between the Orange LoRa®* network and the OMA NGSI protocol used by the Orion Context Broker as well as by other components of the FIWARE ecosystem. This library was written using following libraries: Eclipse Paho (client mqtt) Fiware NGSI Library Spring Web and […]

  5. Orange is launching IoT Soft Box, a kit to prototype end-to-end IoT solutions from devices to cloud services. It is suitable for any developer interested in discovering IoT capabilities as well as for start-ups or international corporations looking to prototype a connected object. Orange has been working very closely with ARM to provide a Live […]

  6. This C++ SDK helps developing Arduino and mbed (ARM) applications for LPWAN Orange Network (works also on other network). Its purpose is to ease the development of connected objects prototypes. A sample is available, fully integrated with Arduino. To see more details, open https://github.com/Orange-OpenSource/OpenLPWANKit and from mbed platform: https://developer.mbed.org/compiler/#nav:/OrangeDash (authentication required)

  7. Orange has just pushed another contribution to Eclipse OM2M open source project, which is one of the first open source implementation of oneM2M standard architecture in the world. Orange considers Eclipse OM2M as a key project from the overall eclipse IoT program in the open source initiatives of the Internet of Things. Orange previous contribution […]

  8. Orange today contributes to Eclipse SmartHome open source project, which is a reference in the Smart Home developer ecosystem. Orange considers Eclipse SmartHome as a key project from the overall eclipse IoT program in the open source initiatives of the Internet of Things. Orange implementation of OSGi standard EnOcean Device service specification is now available […]

  9. LoRa® starter kit for IoT from Orange gives you the possibility to experiment with LoRa® technology and create your own connected object. The kit is based on an Arduino platform and comes with a demo program allowing you to get data from a sensor, send it to the cloud through the LoRa® network then visualize […]
