These training videos explain key aspects of the FIWARE ecosystem as well as the Mexican efforts to promote FIWARE technologies. The videos provide an overview of the concept of the “Internet of the Future” and the FIWARE cloud. They also introduce the Mexican National Laboratory for the Internet of the Future, or LaNIF. FIWARE Mexico partner INFOTEC has all of this information material available in Spanish. It can be accessed here.
This video explains the concept of the “Internet of the Future” and provides examples of innovative applications and services offered via the Internet. It highlights the principal characteristics of these applications and services. In addition, it also presents the Mexican National Laboratory for the Internet of the Future, or LaNIF, an experimentation space in which users can develop these type of solutions using the innovative and open entrepreneurial FIWARE ecosystem.
The LaNIF team talks about the FIWARE ecosystem, an open entrepreneurial ecosystem created in Europe to foment innovation and the development of digital solutions. The video establishes a knowledge base for the open software components offered by FIWARE as well as its architecture and development strategy. It also highlights examples of applications based on FIWARE developed in Europe.
The FIWARE cloud, based on Openstack, allows users to access hardware resources as well as FIWARE software components to easily develop innovative applications and services. This video, besides reviewing the key parts of the cloud, explains how to access the cloud from different types of accounts.
Context information refers to information that is used to describe the current “state” of everything relevant that´s happening around an “element”. One example of such information is the last update reported by a system of captured by an external system. This video explains how FIWARE manages context information with one of its principal components: the Orion Context Broker.
The Orion Context Broker is the principal component of the FIWARE platform. This component is in charge of managing context information and allows for the publication of entity data (for instance, sensor data). In this way, the context information published is available to be consulted by other entities interested in processing the information. For instance, a mobile application may use information from sensors. This training module is composed of a series of four videos that explain how the Orion Context Broker works and the main functions of its API, NGSI v2.
Kurento is a development framework that provides an abstraction layer for multimedia capacities, which allows beginner developers include interactive multimedia components in their applications. The Kurento module is composed of two videos that describe how Kurento works to process images in real-time.
WireCloud provides a mashup web application platform that allows end users without programming abilities create web applications, dashboards and cockpits. This can be used to, for instance, create a visualization of specific data or to control your home or the environment. The video module describes how WireCloud, a platform that can generate dashboards, works and how users can best take advantage of it.
An initiative to accelerate the market uptake of FIWARE technologies in Mexico, pioneered by the increasing engagement of stakeholders through specialized training of the most up to date FIWARE technologies, Working Groups and Open FIWARE Camps MX-EU.
