Conventions for improved sustainability of multi-vendor IoT solutions

Purpose and target audience

TARGET AUDIENCE : CLIENTS PURCHASING IOT SOLUTIONS AND IOT-VENDORS
The framework is building upon existing frameworks and guidelines on sustainability, circularity, repairability, and interchangeability.

The framework presents a model for defining the important interfaces between different components in multi-vendor IoT solutions, where it is important to ensure modularity and interchangeability to make sure that the full product can be repaired and updated over time. Thus, the framework is specifically building on top of the Danish Standards DS-INF 176:2021 Guide for Sustainable, Digital Transformation in Denmark. In this guide 7 recommendations are outlined and the second one is Build with Interfaces. The present framework is specifying this recommendation presenting a model for the modular layers in a multi-vendor IoT-solution.
