India’s first FIWARE Lab node to be Operational from April 2018


Addressing growing demand for smart city applications across India, NEC Corporation and NEC Technologies India Private Limited (NECTI) will soon establish a FIWARE Lab node in India. Having a FIWARE Lab node within India will encourage more participation from Asian countries as they can keep all experimental and research data within the boundaries of the region.

FIWARE is an open source platform which enables real-time smart services through data sharing across vertical domains and agencies via open standard-based APIs. The Lab node in India will help to foster a culture of collaboration between various participating entities and help to promote their solutions in the FIWARE community. FIWARE will introduce royalty-free open APIs based on specifications with the Indian government increasing its focus on Open Source Software.

The facility expected to start operations from April 2108, is endorsed by FIWARE Foundation. Organizations, entrepreneurs and individuals can utilize this lab for learning FIWARE, as well as to test their applications while capitalizing on Open Data published by cities and other organizations.     Read more…
