The DKSR OUP is an open-source urban data platform based on the EIP SCC reference architecture and on specifications according to DIN SPEC 91357. The core technology is based on the field-tested UrbanPulse© Plattform, developed by the urban software institute [ui!], which has already been successfully implemented, tested, and is continuously enhanced in over 40 municipalities. The platform has its particular strengths operating IoT-based applications with real-time functionalities (such as environmentally sensitive traffic control). These applications account for a large part of the smart city solutions that can benefit from an OUP.

The DKSR OUP focuses on minimal latency, meaning that the time between data acquisition and data provided is kept as low as possible, within a milliseconds range. In this way, sensor data can be processed, analyzed, and distributed in near real-time, and used to immediately respond to what is happening in the city, municipality, or region. This is achieved by the DKSR OUP software architecture, which is completely event-based.
