Service Subscribers, Providers, Aggregators- Business and Technique - Anarchy or Democracy? - Paul Kopff, Electricité de France

  1. 1. © copyright 2004 by OSGi Alliance All rights reserved. Service Subscribers, Providers, Aggregators : Business and Technique – Anarchy or Democracy ? Paul KOPFF Electricité de France
  2. 2. © copyright 2004 by OSGi Alliance. All rights reserved. What is OSGI worth for Smart Home Service Providers ? • Standardising services delivery to share access to home gateways • where they are partly installed as « smart home » software components • Be able to adapt evolving services to various local resources • and to enrol them opportunistically to share them with other service providers A technical potential and a business vision
  3. 3. © copyright 2004 by OSGi Alliance. All rights reserved. A simple example : Smarter Heating Control Someone (something) will put ON/OFF the heating • Depending on the temperatures (inside and outside) But maybe also : • Depending on the current tariff of energy • Depending on the other energy consumptions • Depending on the occupancy of the house/rooms • And… ?
  4. 4. © copyright 2004 by OSGi Alliance. All rights reserved. So, the service provider of heat control is concerned by His possible action on the heating appliances • Depending of the temperature measurements (that HE performs) … and weather forecasts ? But also maybe • On real time tariff information (provided by the energy seller-trader) • And on processing of power meter readings (owned by a Utility) • And on opportunistic reuse of volumetric sensors (owned by the security service provider)
  5. 5. © copyright 2004 by OSGi Alliance. All rights reserved. How & why interact with the security service provider ? • Not only does he have his security software running on a common gateway instead of a special gateway • Other service providers may be interested too by the volumetric (occupancy) sensors he owns And through a common gateway it is easy to share (hardware)resources • The service providers « sell » each others access, data or control • They thus provide their customers more (or better) usage of the investments
  6. 6. © copyright 2004 by OSGi Alliance. All rights reserved. Where is the common gateway ? What is it? To implement the cooperating businesses, the service providers have a common implementation space : • Maybe only ONE gateway with everything in it • Or smaller spaces everywhere in the appliances • Other architectures ?… When « standard » means of installing evolving components are provided, and they can inter-work (share purposes) : What and Where does not really matter !
  7. 7. © copyright 2004 by OSGi Alliance. All rights reserved. The magic « inter-working » appliances in a smart home The absolute delocalisation of the implementation space is a very difficult feat ; to share the purposes of all service providers : • Either all the small spaces in the appliances already know them or can invent them through mutual discovery • Or each service provider must spread his purposes all over the available resources, hoping for enough room – bandwith and no practical conflicts, or missing features… (the appliance manufacturers would expect/hope that too !) Or else it may undermine the reputation of their brands…
  8. 8. © copyright 2004 by OSGi Alliance. All rights reserved. Easier to get it right in central implementation spaces ! Because what is important to service providers : sharing of resources for/through cooperating purposes But business generates also competition and conflicts : • Competing manufacturers for appliances supporting… • more or better services from competing service providers The standard will guaranty that the competition will be fair and benefit first and most to the customers, aleviating possibly : • Conflicts of interest between service providers • Conflicts of interest between them and manufacturers
  9. 9. © copyright 2004 by OSGi Alliance. All rights reserved. So even in case of NO MAGIC INTER-WORKING The manufacturers of communicating appliances should not simply give away device drivers (for the service providers tu use at will for any purposes) They should imply themselves (with business views) as Device Driving Management Service Providers negotiating (by deploying cooperating components) with Smart Home Purposes Service Providers Besides, they may add their own purposes : for instance remote diagnostic for predictive maintenance… Thus, the manufacturers…

Power Meter Owner CUSTOMER Smart HOME Meter Owner Consum. per Use Appliance managers Validated data Validated data Validated device driving Tariff alarms Consumption alarms Energy Pricing Usage information Home Automation Predictive Maintenance (different uses at different prices) More other services… Energy Seller
  11. 11. © copyright 2004 by OSGi Alliance. All rights reserved. How would a Smart Home Service market work ? • Not the despotic way One Smart Home Service Provider is in charge of all purposes and owns all control on resources • Not the anarchic way Any number of Service Providers contribute to the smarter home through their special purposes taking advantage of any available resources Shouldn’t the resource providers be worried?
  12. 12. © copyright 2004 by OSGi Alliance. All rights reserved. What about Democracy ? • All the stakeholders (also the manufacturers) belong to the Smart Home service community • They manage B2B relations in controled ways that will specify how resources are shared • By fair data exchange and validation of actions But • They may also delegate some common interests to one of them acting as the democratic State : the service aggregator
  13. 13. © copyright 2004 by OSGi Alliance. All rights reserved. Then, everybody could relax… • The service aggregator would develop and deploy and manage administration tools for the community • He should welcome newcomers, and make sure they are well treated and know how to behave well (helping them with developments for integration) • He could be in charge of technical tools that provide common look and feel and common branding image of this service provider community so that… (most important)The customers can relax too…

Then, everybody culd relax… • v The European Application Home Alliance is a Specific Targeted Research Project from the Sixth Framework Program of EU where TelCos, Utilities, Consumer Good Manufacturers, Semiconductor, Technology and Research partners specify an Open, Secure, Seamless Global Home Platform for Networked Home Control and Audio Video Applications. Among the applications that will validate the route to industrial deployment : Smart Home integrating seamlessly white goods, audio-video and energy/heating control. For this reason, one important commitment of the TEAHA project was to adopt OSGi and this business model was considered « ad hoc »…
