IoTivity provides an opensource implementation of the protocol described by the Open Connectivity Foundation, together with other resources to enable effective use of the protocol. There’s an ongoing effort to extend the protocol defined by OCF to be used in the Industrial segment. One example of the difference is in how to scale the network: unlike in a smart home, a smart factory cannot assume that all the devices be on the same network. It needs solutions like a publish/subscribe mechanism and robust routing. It will have other requirements such as device monitoring, managing software, ensuring the reliability and predictability and integrating with existing network protocols already used in the domain. This presentation will describe the technologies and specifications that are necessary to fulfill those requirements, the status of the work in progress towards bringing an open source solutions, including IoTivity, to this new segment.
