What Is OIC?

THE OPEN INTERCONNECT CONSORTIUM IS BEING FOUNDED BY LEADING TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES WITH THE GOAL OF DEFINING THE CONNECTIVITY REQUIREMENTS AND ENSURING INTEROPERABILITY OF THE BILLIONS OF DEVICES THAT WILL MAKE UP THE EMERGING INTERNET OF THINGS (IOT).

Welcome To The Open Interconnect Consortium

International Data Corporation expects the installed base of the Internet of Things will be approximately 212 billion “things” globally by the end of 2020. This is expected to include 30.1 billion installed “connected (autonomous)” things.  Today, these devices are connecting to each other using multiple, and often incompatible approaches. Atmel, Broadcom, Dell, Intel, Samsung and Wind River believe that in order to achieve this scale, the industry will need both the collaboration of the open source community and industry standards to drive interoperability of these devices.

The Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC) will seek to define a common communication framework based on industry standard technologies to wirelessly connect and intelligently manage the flow of information among devices, regardless of form factor, operating system or service provider. OIC also intends to deliver open source implementations for a variety of IoT market opportunities and vertical segments from smart home solutions to automotive and more.

Over the next few months, the Consortium will be recruiting other industry leaders to collaborate and join the efforts. Contact us to learn more.
