Open Connectivity Foundation Specification Achieves Recognition by International Standards and Conformity Committees, Driving Secure Interoperability Across the Internet of Things Worldwide
The Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF), a leading open Internet of Things (IoT) standards development organization, today announced that its OCF 1.0 specification has been ratified as an International Standard by ISO/IEC JTC 1 (Joint Technical Committee for ICT standardization of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)), marking a critical step in the OCF’s efforts to establish a common and secure language fueling IoT interoperability worldwide. The OCF standard will be published as ISO/IEC 30118 (Parts 1-6).
While the IoT presents an incredible opportunity to improve the technology businesses’ and consumers’ use every day, a lack of a universal language ensuring seamless communication between devices challenges and limits user experiences. With its now worldwide recognized specification, OCF continues to advance in developing a truly open IoT protocol, equipping developers and manufacturers in the IoT ecosystem with the tools they need to provide a secure, interoperable end user experience.
Incorporating a strong security framework with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and cloud management capabilities are essential for today’s digital approaches. With these additional elements, OCF’s latest 2.0 specification defines a best in class secure and cloud native network protocol for IoT practices and ecosystems. The OCF resource description allows for industry-specific deployment across Smart Home, Healthcare, Automotive and Commercial Building. The Foundation’s two open source implementations – IoTivity and IoTivity Lite – allow for quick adoption of the ratified standard. The OCF 2.0 specification will be submitted to ISO/IEC JTC 1 later this year.
“We are excited to see the ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 approval of the OCF specification as an international standard for the IoT ecosystem,” said John Park, Executive Director of OCF. “Achieving this recognition reinforces OCF’s contribution to the global IoT community to solve the interoperability gap between devices, supported by the development of ISO/IEC 30118 standardization and OCF-certified devices in the coming years.”
“ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 (JTC 1) is very pleased to welcome the important work of OCF and have its specifications transposed into approved ISO/IEC standards," said Phil Wennblom, JTC 1 Chair. "This accomplishment marks the strong and constructive relationship between our organizations.”

ResMed Study Finds CPAP Adherence Improved by Remote Monitoring, Self-Monitoring across 3 Countries21.5.2019 13:00:00 CEST | Pressemelding
Remote monitoring and patient self-monitoring can drive CPAP adherence for people with sleep apnea, according to research presented by ResMed (NYSE: RMD) (ASX: RMD) at the American Thoracic Society’s 2019 ATS International Conference. Average adherence to PAP (positive airway pressure), the gold standard for treating sleep apnea, is approximately 50 percent when using legacy technology with no cloud connectivity or remote monitoring capabilities. According to the new study, researchers found significantly higher rates when they evaluated patients on 100% cloud-connectable devices that enable remote monitoring: more than 31,000 Brazilians, 17,000 Mexicans, and 4.1 million Americans. Percent of study participants achieving 90-day PAP adherence (all Remotely and remotely monitored) self-monitored United States 74% 85% Brazil 72% 83% Mexico 66% 81% “These results equate a strong endorsement for remote and self-monitoring technology,” said study coauthor and ResMed Chief Medical Officer Car
