The need for interoperability, which is making different types of devices or technologies communicate with one another, is certainly nothing new in our industry. It has paved the way for technological developments, while at the same time ensuring future-proof products. Most importantly, it has been a catalyst in guiding newer trends, such as AI and IoT, into maturity. As new technologies reach this crucial point where standardization is necessary for seamless integrations, we further see the need of open standards and cooperation within the market.
