Open Building Information Xchange—oBIX

oBIX is a set of standards developed by a committee of the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards—(OASIS).

The objective of oBIX is to define a standard web services protocol to enable communications between building mechanical and electrical systems and enterprise applications, enabling facilities and their operations to be managed as full participants in IT infrastructure.

Building systems use many esoteric binary communications protocols such as BACnet, LonTalk, Modbus, and DALI, to name a few, and a number of proprietary formats as well.

The task of oBIX is to normalize these communications to web-based services, XML, in particular, delivering facilities systems data in a format consumable by enterprise applications that is compatible with IP networks.

Generally, oBIX deals with the interoperability and convergence of electrical and mechanical facilities systems.
