OSGi and IIC Joint Liaison Workshop

 


Building Industrial Internet Solutions with OSGi

When: May, 24 at 3:15 – 6:30pm
Location: Radisson Blu Seaside Hotel, Helsinki, Finland
Cost: Complimentary
Contact: info@iiconsortium.org

Development of an Industrial Internet ecosystem requires a vibrant network of member companies, research organizations and liaison communities based on collaboration and an open culture. Since the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a main technology driver across most vertical industries, it’s never been more important to join forces in developing requirements that become part of standardized specifications and open-source models.

OSGi technology and specifications deliver a vendor-independent, standards-based approach to modularizing Java software applications and infrastructure. Its proven services model enables app and infrastructure modules to communicate locally and distributed across the network. Capabilities include local and remote component management, support for pluggable protocols, device security, and dynamic functionality ensuring that OSGi based industrial internet systems can be easily updated and evolved today and in the future.

The IIC Liaison Working Group and the OSGi Internet of Things Expert Group will work together to gather requirements for tailoring and extending OSGi specifications to address specific industrial internet scenarios.

Join members and guests of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and the OSGi Alliance for a joint workshop where we will explore:

  • Cross-industry and cross-protocol device connectivity on level of actors/sensors and IoT gateways
  • Support for application developers creating IoT services
  • Connecting devices and the interoperation with existing management systems and protocols
  • Virtualization of IoT services
  • Enabling and enforcing IoT end-to-end security
  • The challenges of remote maintenance and evolution of field-based applications

Speakers include thought leaders from the Industrial Internet Consortium, the OSGi Alliance, Huawei, Bosch Software Innovations, Fujitsu, Paremus, ABB, IBM and more.
