As announced last week, a new version 1.1.0 of IOTVity from Open Interconnect Consortium is getting released soon, I thought it is worth covering a little bit about this one of many IOT Standardizations. Prominent backers of OIC are Intel, Broadcom, Samsung and , latest, Microsoft and many others. The Iotivity is a standard for device intercommunication from the OIC. It is competing to ALLJoyn from AllSeen consortium led by Qualcomm.
As depicted in above architectural diagram, IOTivity offers Device Discovery, Device Communication, Data and Device Management functionalities. This opensource is available on Android, Ubuntu Linux, Tizen, and Andruino under Apache 2.0 license.
