Breaking News: uCIFI® Unveils Data Model 2.0

uCIFI® Unveils Data Model 2.0 a Set of New LwM2M Objects to Foster Interoperability in Smart Cities

In a groundbreaking development, uCIFI® Alliance has released a series of new LwM2M (Lightweight Machine-to-Machine) objects, marking a significant stride toward enriched interoperability and standardized communication in smart city applications and IoT devices.

uCIFI®’s newly published objects are set to optimize various functionalities and parameters within smart city applications, enabling diverse devices and systems to interact and communicate seamlessly. The introduction of these objects at OMA SpecWorks exemplifies uCIFI®’s commitment to propelling the adoption of open, interoperable, and vendor-agnostic solutions, allowing cities to integrate a myriad of products and services without compatibility constraints.

The novel uCIFI® objects aim to harmonize the representation of different functionalities and parameters, allowing for clear, standardized, and machine-understandable communication. This initiative promises to facilitate seamless integration and interaction across diverse IoT devices and smart city applications, enhancing the adaptability and scalability of urban solutions.

What is new in uCIFI® Data Model 2.0

The release of these innovative LwM2M objects provides new use cases, enabling possibilities by features like:

Schedule Management

Schedule Management provides devices with the possibility to program a specific behavior that may change based on time of year, time of day or even external sensors.

It has been designed to cover multiple scenarios such as Smart Lighting, Smart Agriculture or any other use case that could make use of a generic actuator.
The proposal introduces many optimizations aimed at reducing the over-the-air footprint and, at the same time, increasing human readability.

Distributed Sensor Group

Distributed Sensor Group integrates within the Schedule Management to further extend its capabilities and allow it to react to external events, being received by remote sensors.

It is also referred to as “Device-To-Device” communication, since devices may directly interact, without having to rely on an external orchestrator.

New Objects

New Objects have been created to better report network information, statistics and to describe additional sensors.

In addition, existing objects have been extended to add new functionalities.

A Vision for Sustainable Urban Development

uCIFI®’s release of new LwM2M objects underpins its vision to foster sustainable and livable urban environments by leveraging standardized, interoperable technologies. The Alliance’s dedication to advancing open and unified frameworks is instrumental in accelerating smart city transformations globally, empowering cities to harness the full potential of intelligent technologies

Stay tuned for more updates and insights on how uCIFI®’s new LwM2M objects are shaping the future of smart, sustainable, and interconnected urban ecosystems.
