Open Smart Grid Platform presentation
An Open source IoT platform for large infrastructures
For FOSEM we would like to excite developers - who have interest in working on use-cases for Smart Cities, Utility Companies and other large-scale infrastructure companies - for the Open Smart Grid Platform. The Open Smart Grid Platform is an Open source IoT platform for large infrastructures. The platform allows you to monitor and control hardware in the public space. With several (generic) functions ready to use, the main benefits of the Open Smart Grid Platform are: scalability & high availability, high security, its generic design, and no vendor lock-in.
Introduction The Open Smart Grid Platform is an open source IoT platform. The open smart grid platform is a generic IoT platform, built for organizations that manage and/or control large-scale infrastructures. The following use cases are now readily available: smart lighting, smart metering, tariff switching, and microgrids. Furthermore the following use-cases are in development: distribution automation, load management and smart device management. The architecture of the open smart grid platform is modular and consists multiple layers. External applications are connected to a service domain via the integration layer. This integration layer contains web services. The service domain manages all the business rules such as: "Can we allow this change?”. The core component routes the messages to the correct protocol adaptor and contains generic functions such as device management, time synchronization and firmware management. The protocol adaptors convert the messages to a protocol that is used by the smart objects. This message could be a switching command, for example.
The open smart grid platform is highly unique for embracing the open source approach and the following key features: • Suitable for scalable environments delivering high performance • High availability and multitenant architectures • Built with security by design and regularly tested. • It has a generic architecture. More use cases and domains are easily added to the platform. • The open smart grid platform is based on open standards where possible.

Proposal talk For FOSEM we would like to excite developers for our platform by discussing the reasoning behind the platform from a technical point of view and the architecture of platform. We believe the platform is interesting for developers who have interest in working on use-cases for Smart Cities, Utility Companies and other large-scale infrastructure companies.
