With the Hanoi release, EdgeX Foundry announces the availability of EdgeX Ready.
The EdgeX Ready program is about demonstrating the ability to work with EdgeX. The designation helps other community participants and solution vendors identify vendors who have gone through a self-assessment process to demonstrate that they are able to integrate one of their offerings with solutions using EdgeX. Those vendors who have joined the program are highlighted on the EdgeX Foundry website with an EdgeX Ready badge next to their logo.
The initial, “crawl,” phase of the “self-assessment process” is to simply validate a device profile. Users attest that they have authored a device profile and moved device-specific data through an EdgeX instance that they had set up themselves thereby demonstrating some familiarity with EdgeX and, more specifically, of device services and their associated device profiles. Upon submission and approval of their device profiles and sample data, the users’ logos will be badged on the EdgeX Foundry website.
We are initially launching with MQTT- and REST-based device profiles. This is just the beginning. With community interest, we will expand the program to support additional device services.
We ask the vendors to do the following:
Using a device that is described by their device profile, generate sample data, and send it to the appropriate device service
This workflow diagram below may help with understanding the process:
The following materials are required to included in the EdgeX Ready Program submission:
We at the EdgeX Foundry are very much interested in providing the EdgeX community with multiple options for validating device profiles for the EdgeX Ready Program. If you have your own EdgeX validator and would like to contribute the implementation as open-source or share the service with the EdgeX community and the EdgeX Ready program specifically, we are interested in hearing from you! Please reach out to us on Slack at #edgex-ready, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact the Certification Team WG Chair directly at email@example.com and we can discuss next steps.
The EdgeX Ready Program seeks to aid in the creation of device profiles and in the collaboration of their use while easing the EdgeX domain knowledge prerequisites. To that end, the following areas of work have been identified:
Submit a device profile for verification.
We will tell you whether or not it is a valid device profile.
If it fails, we will tell what is wrong with or what is missing from your device profile.
Upon passing, we ask if you would like to submit this device profile to the EdgeX Endorsement Program. You fill out a form. The form, the device profile, and related sample data and associated schema are submitted to the EdgeX Foundry for processing.
The form and the device profile are reviewed by a team within EdgeX Foundry.
A sticker/badge is sent to you that you may use for marketing and promotional purposes of that device profile.
