Providers is the term used to describe the logical or organisational unit responsible for a particular collection of networked devices. Typically this will be a data infrastructure provider or a company with a batch of devices that use a specific data infrastructure. Providers may include all open data, a combination of open and closed data, or be entirely closed.
