SAN RAMON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The OSGi™ Alliance announced today a partnership agreement with the Industry Transfer Promotion Center (Chinese Ministry of Commerce, Shanghai Base) to collaborate on several programs that will further promote the wide adoption of OSGi™ technology in China. The strategic partnership includes a new Information Sharing Facility for OSGi technology located in Changshu, near Shanghai in China that will serve as a focal point for a number of strategic activities.
“Modular software based on open industry standards provides the essential foundations necessary for building maintainable, economically sustainable and evolvable Smart City, Industry 4.0 and 5G solutions. OSGi technology is uniquely positioned within the industry to help China realize these long-term sustainability objectives,” said Cheng Shi, Chinese Ministry of Commerce, Shanghai Base.
The new Information Sharing Facility will be the nucleus for a number of strategic activities including a showcase platform for OSGi Alliance member companies to promote their ‘OSGi Enabled’ solutions to the Chinese market. The facility will be a community hub for hosting China OSGi Users’ Forum and developer workshops and also serve as an OSGi Developer Certification exam center in the future. Additionally, the Information Sharing Facility will be instrumental in cultivating research and development relationships with Chinese academic and research institutes, which will start with OSGi being a featured topic in university course syllabus.
“The Chinese are taking a world-leading role in green renewable energy and restoration of the environment so it’s no surprise that sustainable, evolvable solutions for Smart City and Industry 4.0 are a high strategic priority in China. OSGi and OSGi Enabled products will be an instrumental enabler for this vision,” said Richard Nicholson, Paremus Founder & CEO, OSGi Board and Strategy Lead. “With direct access to the Chinese market through this initiative, it is an exciting time to be an OSGi-based technology company and an OSGi Alliance member.”
