Mission & Vision
IoT has received an enormous amount of attention in recent years, rapidly growing with many smart devices already integrated into consumers’ everyday lives. The number of connected devices in India is expected to reach 2.7 billion by 2020, with Nasscom predicting the economic impact of these devices reaching up to USD 15 billion next year. But nearly half of the market potential of IoT remains locked due to lack of interoperability standards.
The Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) is a leading open IoT standards development organization dedicated to ensuring secure interoperability for consumers, businesses and industries by delivering a standard communications platform, a bridging specification, an open source implementation and a certification program allowing devices to communicate regardless of form factor, operating system, service provider, transport technology or ecosystem
The OCF India Forum was established with representatives from Nasscom CoE IoT, Samsung R&D India Bengaluru, Intel India, L&T Technology Services and 30+ member companies. The Chair of the India Forum is Dr. Aloknath De, CTO of Samsung R&D India who will be working closely with Sudhanshu Mittal, Director of Nasscom CoE IoT and other leadership members. The India Forum is committed to leveraging OCF's mature technology standards and open source applications to promote secure interconnection between devices of different brands, different operating systems and different underlying communication technologies in India; Also increase OCF certified products and promote OCF Interoperability with other IoT platforms.
