This document serves as a technical manual for interacting with the Interoperability and Data Management Framework in the context of the HOLISDER project. It describes the Framework’s capabilities and provides instructions on how to use it.
The Interoperability and Data Management Framework is the central piece of the architecture of the HOLISDER solution. It serves as orchestrator of the communication and as a storage location for historical sensor data. The framework is comprised of Message Oriented Middleware and two types of gateway devices. These gateway devices interface with various sensing devices located onsite and store the data in the Middleware. The gateways use OpenADR standard to communicate with various outside parties through the Middleware to realize various demand-response scenarios.
