Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV)

Overview: Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV) is an open source project focused on accelerating the evolution of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is the replacement of custom hardware running network functions by virtual servers running on a cloud platform on commercial, off-the-shelf hardware. Because multiple open source NFV building blocks already exist, OPNFV will work with upstream projects to coordinate continuous integration and testing while filling development gaps. OPNFV's goals are to increase performance and power efficiency; improve reliability, availability, and serviceability; and deliver comprehensive platform instrumentation.

RF Energy Alliance

Overview: The RF Energy Alliance is a non-profit technical association comprised of companies dedicated to realizing solid-state RF energy's potential as a clean, highly efficient and controllable heat and power source. By establishing standard specifications for solid-state RF energy, the technology has the potential to become a highly-efficient, controllable and scalable energy and power source replacing magnetrons in these areas as well as enabling many other (new) applications, which demand the high degree of control possible with solid state.

HyperCat

Overview: The HyperCat specification allows Internet of Things clients to discover what data an IoT server has available. It is built on the same Web standards that are now common for that interface, i.e. HTTPS, REST/HATEOAS, JSON. With HyperCat, developers can write apps that will work across many servers, which helps to break down the walls between today's vertical silos. HyperCat allows a server to provide a set of resources to a client, each with a set of semantic annotations. Implementers are free to choose or invent any set of annotations to suit their needs. A set of best practices and tools is currently being developed.

AllSeen Alliance

Overview: The AllSeen Alliance is a nonprofit consortium dedicated to enabling and driving the widespread adoption of products, systems and services that support the Internet of Everything with an open, universal development framework. The AllSeen Alliance framework is initially based on the AllJoyn open source project, and will be expanded with contributions from member companies and the open source community. Products, applications and services created with the AllJoyn open source project can communicate over various transport layers, such as Wi-Fi, power line or Ethernet, regardless of manufacturer or operating system and without the need for Internet access. The software has been and will continue to be openly available for developers to download, and runs on popular platforms such as Linux and Linux-based Android, iOS, and Windows, including embedded variants.
