Leading companies across the IoT space have come together with a single objective:

Build a flexible, platform-independent, highly-scalable and industrial-grade open source edge software platform supported by a rich ecosystem of components that can quickly and easily deliver interoperability between things, applications and services, across a wide range of use cases.

Join your industry peers in helping to evolve the technology, whether it be shaping the overall platform architecture, details such as the APIs for the core interoperability framework including APIs for Core Services, the Device Services SDK and security and system management, the launch of a formal certification program, or drop-in microservice alternatives for serving low footprint devices and hard real-time Industrial IoT use cases.

Of course, as an open source project, we welcome anyone to get involved in the development community, regardless of membership status. Please visit the Community page for details on technical calls, mailing lists, Github, and more. If you are interested in learning more about corporate membership, please see the details below and complete the inquiry form.
