UPnP+ demonstration for Cloud and IoT to take place at IBC 2014
Amsterdam - 23 July 2014: Global home networking standards group, UPnP Forum, is driving UPnP+ forward, using the Cloud to connect the Internet of Things (IoT) to the things you will have in your home and make those things even more capable. UPnP Forum, which is exhibiting at this year's IBC (12-16 September), will demonstrate UPnP+ capabilities using sensor management control over a Cloud network to show how UPnP can integrate devices into the IoT.
UPnP Forum has created a strategy around using new and existing UPnP device control protocols (DCPs) and UPnP Cloud architecture to provide UPnP protocols specifically for IoT applications. UPnP core technology provides a base for IoT, creating bridges to both wide-area networks and non-IP devices. The Forum has already produced DCPs for lights, thermostats, automatic blinds and security cameras, and is now developing support for new IoT devices, specifically those with constrained resources.
Scott Lofgren, President, UPnP Forum, said: "UPnP+ provides an improved, seamless experience for the consumer and creates new values and opportunities for manufacturers, developers and integrators. We're leveraging existing UPnP protocols, taking them into the Cloud to bridge the IoT while continuing to support legacy UPnP devices.
Incorporating IPv6, capabilities for discovering Cloud services and new grouping/pairing capabilities, UPnP+ includes a host of enhancements and will deliver improved interoperability baselines. It also mandates energy management and security features that were previously optional for gaining UPnP certification.
"By upgrading interoperability baselines with UPnP+, the market will benefit from device protection, security, energy management, protocol bridging and sensor management capabilities," added Lofgren. "UPnP+ demonstrates our commitment to updating and maintaining specifications to support the billions of devices already connected by UPnP. UPnP+ provides even greater value to the industry as Cloud connectivity and the IoT enable new and exciting digital experiences."
The UPnP Forum booth will be in Hall 14, stand L17 at IBC 2014. A UPnP+ demonstration will be included in the Content Everywhere hub demo presentations at 11:30am on Sunday 14 September in Hall 14.

About UPnP Forum
UPnP Forum, established in 1999, is a global alliance of more than 1,000 industry-leading organizations working to enable device-to-device interoperability and facilitate easier and better home networking. The Forum promotes the adoption of uniform technical device interconnectivity standards and certifies devices conforming to these standards. UPnP Forum is an impartial group enabling member companies to participate and develop extensions to the UPnP Device Architecture, which defines how to use the Internet Protocol (IP) to communicate between devices, and Device Control Protocols (DCPs), which are services between devices. Members of UPnP Forum include market leaders in computing, printing and networking, consumer electronics, home appliances, automation, control and security, and mobile products.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

We’re entering a new era of computing technology that many are calling the Internet of Things (IoT). Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems – call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its potential is huge. IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. As a result, huge volumes of data are being generated, and that data is being processed into useful actions that can “command and control” thi...
