According to Srini Chilukuri, MD, Flexeye IT Services – Flexeye leads several collaborative engagements and HYPERCAT (www.hypercat.io) has grown from a government backed program, with funding in excess of £8m, and which is driving interoperability in IoT. HyperCat is a non-profit organization, HyperCat is chaired by Lord Erroll, a cross-bench member of the House of Lords. HyperCat has signed the MOU between BSI and W3C to promote and become a Publicly Available Standard (PAS) for UK and International markets. HyperCat is a not for profit organization driving secure and interoperable Internet of Things (IoT) for industry and cities supported by more that 800 organisations.

Accelerator is for much bigger companies where they work towards resolving the real-time problems for the society and bringing in the solutions to the market for better living. The HyperCat accelerator will also consider approaches to financing, governance and procurement across these areas.
The leading technology, engineering and services companies (BT, Cisco, Symantec, KPMG LLP, Flexeye and WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff) have entered into a Teaming Agreement. The purpose of this teaming between leading technology, engineering and services companies is to agree a core set of principles by which they can cooperate and use the key capabilities and competencies each party brings to help accelerate the adoption of smart city services and provide potential revenue for the members through the delivery of technology, engineering and services. The companies will work together to identify, target, develop and deliver these services for clients wishing to deploy and exploit Smart technologies in new and existing infrastructure projects.
HyperCat, with Flexeye as a lead partner, is focused on making data from connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices discoverable, searchable and addressable. This addresses two of the central challenges of the rapidly evolving Internet of Things: firstly, how to find relevant and trustworthy data from connected “things”; and secondly how to make it easier for those things to talk to each other. It has a strong set of backers including Innovate UK, the Mayor of London’s Office, the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation, BT, Cisco, Flexeye, KPMG, Symantec and WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff. The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, launched OPDC in April 2015 to drive forward future regeneration of the site linked to the construction of a vast High Speed 2 (HS2) and Crossrail Station and deliver up to 25,500 homes and 65,000 jobs.
A strong and commercially viable pipeline of opportunity will be identified in order to close early adopters of jointly defined blueprint solutions and services, with the first engagement planned to be the OPDC (Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation) in London which is Europe’s largest regeneration project. Old Oak includes a new £10bn GDV transport super hub to open in 2026 connecting five of the UK’s airports and is the only location in the country connecting High Speed 2, Crossrail, the Great West Coast Mainline and London overground networks.
