SURE Universal Launches First Production-Ready OCF Standard-Compliant IoT Platform

The turnkey software solution for IoT maximizes interoperability and flexibility for smart device vendors

Nov. 9, 2018 Guangzhou, China – SURE Universal Ltd. announced the first IoT platform based on the Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) standard at the OCF China workshop held in Guangzhou on November 9-10. The OCF standard provides a single language for IoT devices and appliances, enabling them to communicate regardless of the appliance brand and radio communication technology.

Revenue from the global smart home and smart building markets is rapidly increasing and forecast to reach over US$100 billion by 2022 (Statista). The OCF standard is the key to interoperability and therefore essential to IoT adoption by end-users, appliance vendors, and service operators.  In September 2018 at IFA  (Berlin), the OCF announced a new effort to advance interoperability together with Electrolux, Haier, LG, and Samsung—underlining the vital need for a collaborative platform that furnishes a common communication infrastructure.

At the OCF China workshop, SURE is demonstrating a production-ready smart home solution together with Skyworth Digital (Shenzhen), one of the largest digital set-top-box (STB) vendors in the world.

The SURE Universal platform consists of three components, which together harmonize the IoT experience for consumers, manufacturers, and operators: the SURE smartphone remote app, SURE IoT cloud, and SURE STB gateway. The SURE IoT platform is independent of hardware devices and IoT radio protocols. Using a software bridge between OCF and various communication protocols it enables radio interoperability with WiFi, BlueTooth, Zwave, and other communication protocols. The SURE Platform uses OCF-based security, offering the device discovery, authentication and data encryption specified by the standard.

“Specifically designed for smart appliance manufacturers, the SURE Universal IoT Platform delivers a production-ready, easy to use, standard-compliant IoT solution,” said Viktor Ariel, CEO of SURE Universal. “With OCF, our customers can be confident that their IoT solution will be future-proof. Appliance vendors are invited to use the SURE IoT platform for testing their IoT solutions since it represents a complete, customer-tested implementation of the OCF standard,” he said.

“It is very good to see a production level OCF solution at the OCF China workshop, which demonstrates that the OCF protocol is mature and ready for adoption by appliance vendors and communications suppliers,” said Betty Zhao of Haier Goup, organizer of the OCF China Workshop.

SURE Universal software IoT platform is available for evaluation and testing immediately and will be launched for mass-production in Q1-2019.
