Context Broker Presented at FIWARE iHub Cologne
More than 50 guests attended the Detecon FIWARE iHub Forum on 21 March at the Detecon headquarters in Cologne, Germany, to jointly discuss the topic of Smart Cities as an intelligent ecosystem aimed at providing the highest quality of life to its citizens.
Caroline Corneau, project manager of the European Commission, introduced the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Context Broker Building Block. The Context Broker is based on the FIWARE NGSI standard that is able to process context information on a large scale via standard APIs and also enables EU Member States to collect, manage, use and share real-time data.
To build a Digital Single Market, CEF funds generic and reusable digital infrastructure – also known as Building Blocks. The CEF Building Blocks offer basic capabilities that can be reused in any European project to facilitate the delivery of digital public services across borders and sectors. Currently, there are eight Building Blocks: Big Data Test Infrastructure, Context Broker, Archiving, eDelivery, eID, eInvoicing, eSignature and eTranslation.
The CEF Building Blocks support and allow projects to use basic components, based on open standards, which ensure systems can communicate with each other. This might be secure data exchange, automated invoicing, real-time data analytics, authentication or automatic machine translation, for example.
