Open Connectivity Foundation Certification

Achieving optimal performance with interoperability testing

A person using two smart devices connected together.

Overview

Connected devices such as smart meters and driverless vehicles that can improve our productivity with little human intervention were once an attractive proposition but now an expectation. Smart devices need to communicate seamlessly with each other and the network to meet the needs of an increasingly demanding and tech-savvy consumer. Open Connectivity Forum (OCF) Certification testing helps manufacturers build consumer trust in Internet of Things (IoT) device interoperability. The test must be conducted in an OCF-approved Authorized Test Laboratory in accordance with OCF policies.

Benefits

Why is OCF testing important?

OCF testing of IoT devices at the design phase can help you detect/resolve interoperability issues and reduce the risk of costly errors before market launch. With certification, we help confirm your product is compliant with the OCF technology requirements.

OCF is one of the largest IoT industry groups. IoT devices that operate on OCF protocol serve diverse markets from automation to wearables.

As of October 2016, IoT group AllSeen Alliance merged with OCF to collaborate on future OCF standards.
