The draft standard “Wireless data transmission protocol for high-capacity networks based on ultra-narrowband radio signal modulation” (OpenUNB) was developed by the Central Committee of NTI BSIV and TC 194. On July 29, a public discussion of the protocol began, which will last three months. During this time, feedback on the project is accepted.

The text of the draft OpenUNB standard and materials for submission of comments during the public discussion can be found in the  corresponding section on the official website of the Technical Committee “Cyber-physical systems”.

Nikita Utkin,  Chairman of the Cyber-Physical Systems TC, RVC Program Manager : “The new draft of the Internet of Things standard – OpenUNB – mediates a new logic: it comes not from commercial manufacturers and device developers, but from the research community, and is based on the principles of openness and universal availability. We are trying to fulfill our ambition to create a universal open Internet of things standard for “all undecided”. Its completion and improvement is a joint task of the Russian technological community.”

Dmitry Lakontsev, head of the NTI BSIV Central Committee:  “Until recently, there were practically no notable players in the niche of ultra-narrowband protocols for the Internet of Things, except for the closed Sigfox. OpenUNB is an open standard. And its success will depend on how widespread it gets. The more developers and manufacturers support it, the higher the chances of forming an ecosystem and taking a noticeable share in the market, and not only in Russia. The development of the standard requires a large community, so we invite the widest range of industry players to participate in our OpenUNB seminar.”
