IPSO Alliance Focuses on How to Use IoT Open Standards

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) COLORADO SPRINGS, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/05/14 -- The Internet Protocol for Smart Objects (IPSO) Alliance has broadened its Internet of Things (IoT) standards vision to include education on the proper use of IP protocols to create end-to-end solutions for the IoT. This change was adopted to advance the promotion of open standards using current and emerging IP technologies within the IoT community.

"Since its creation in 2008, the IPSO Alliance has been one of the most active groups in the IoT space," said Pete St. Pierre, President of IPSO. "As more standards organizations attempt to lay claim to the IoT, it was important to re-define our vision to ensure we are meeting the needs of our membership and, more importantly, the design community at large. We look forward to promoting how to use IP by engaging leaders from IPSO member companies to act as advocates and thought leaders on IoT open standards." IPSO Alliance members will speak about IoT open standards at a number of upcoming shows, including: CEDIA Expo, Denver, CO (September) Designers of Things, San Francisco, CA (September) Super Mobility Week, Las Vegas, NV (September) ARMTechCon, Santa Clara, CA (October) IPSO will also support the White House Smart America Challenge "local editions" in Detroit and Austin as well as the recently announced NIST Global Cities Challenge.

IPSO will publish two documents outlining open standards for interoperability between objects. The first defines a simple and extensible set of smart objects that can be used to build communication between devices used in smart energy, home automation and multiple other functions. The second outlines a conceptually simple architecture that can be used to build interoperable machine-to-machine (M2M) and IoT applications.

"The ultimate goal for the Alliance is to define how to use the existing set of open standards, specifically IP, to build successful IoT products," continued Mr. St. Pierre. "This definition will further illustrate that this can be done without creating new and complicated protocols in the future." About the IPSO Alliance The IPSO Alliance is a global forum that serves as a resource center and thought leader for industries seeking to establish the Internet Protocol as the basis for the IoT and M2M applications. IPSO Alliance membership is open to any organization supporting an IP-based approach to connecting smart objects.
