The year 2016 is all set to show off some of the biggest technological revolutions and the signs have been visible early on as even rival tech firms have now come together for a common benefit over research and shared brainstorming sessions. A new group has been formed in the world of technology where Internet of Things has been kept as the primary concern for the members. The Open Connectivity Foundation has brought together many rivals, and names such as Microsoft, Samsung, Intel, Qualcomm, GE Digital, and Cisco are all working together for a mutual benefit.
This announcement was made at Barcelona, where all these major names have gathered for the Mobile World Congress event. The event will be held from Monday through Thursday, and in these four days many major names in the world of technology are all set to come out with their latest devices. Samsung and LG are expected to go head to head as the S7 and the LG G5 clash.
However the focus here being Internet of Things, the Open Connectivity Foundation aims at coming out with a common set of protocols and projects for all Internet of Things enabled devices. The group aims at bringing out a parity in things, a uniformity which will help enable devices to do much more than it is expected of them.
Discrepancies between the hardware and software markets have often been noticed, and it looks like this united effort is all set to make things better for the world of technology at large, as the Open Connectivity Foundation aims at bridging the gap between hardware and software when it comes to the Internet of Things.
Tech rivals have come together for a common benefit. At the end of the day, the users will be the biggest winners as we get the best of each of these giants involved in the Open Connectivity Foundation, helping take Internet of Things to the next level.
