FIWARE is an Open Source initiative whose mission is to build an open sustainable ecosystem around public, royalty-free and implementation-driven software platform standards for the development of Smart Applications in multiple sectors.
The FIWARE platform provides a rather simple yet powerful set of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) and also combines components enabling the connection to the Internet of Things with Context Information Management and Big Data services on the Cloud. The specifications of these APIs public and royalty-free. An open source reference implementation of each of the FIWARE components is publicly available so that multiple FIWARE providers can emerge faster in the market with a low-cost proposition.
The FIWARE Foundation is the legal independent body providing shared resources to help achieve the FIWARE Mission. It does so by Empowering, Promoting, Augmenting, Protecting, and Validating FIWARE Platform technologies and supporting the Community around, including not only developers contributing code to the FIWARE platform but also those who contribute in building the FIWARE ecosystem and making it sustainable over time.
Naeva Tec has been part of FIWARE since the beginning as an European Project in 2011 providing a GE (Generic Enabler) Kurento for the media processing. In 2018 we officially signed our collaboration with the FIWARE Foundation as a Gold Member and during 2019 we have added to the FIWARE GEs catalogue OpenVidu.
Kurento is a media server not only capable of managing communication capabilities such as transcoding but it can also process the media. This way by applying custom filters Kurento is capable of generate IoT-like data from media streams. Some of the most used filters are people counter, virtual fencing or plate detection. You can find much more information in www.kurento.org
Openvidu can be seen as an abstraction layer currently running on top of Kurento. It simplifies the development of Kurento based applications by adding a control layer based on Http API Rest, and helping to secure communications by managing in a secure way the multimedia sessions.
