Fremont, CA -- The Internet Protocol for Smart Object (IPSO) Alliance welcomes IoT industry leaders Intel, Aricent, Ayla Networks, Everex Communications, Seed Labs, Universal Devices and Nanjing Information Technology to the growing list of member companies that support the adoption of Internet Protocol (IP) to connect smart objects.
Jeff Fedders of Intel and Fabien Castanier of STMicroelectronics were elected to serve on the IPSO Alliance Board of Directors joining returning Directors; Geoff Mulligan, Proto6, Pete St. Pierre, Oracle, Nicholas Ashworth, Eaton, Christian Legare, Micrium, Jan Holler, Ericsson; and Anton Pfefferseder, Bosch.
"As the IoT trajectory expands at an ever increasing rate across industries from automotive to healthcare and beyond, the benefits of standardizing IP for smart objects cannot be overstated and IPSO's membership growth reflects the industry's awareness of these benefits," said Geoff Mulligan, Chair, IPSO Alliance. "Every day, companies in the IoT space are successfully deploying, implementing and integrating IP for smart objects. Internet driven solutions are the future of IoT."
Reflecting IPSO's commitment to fostering education, awareness and real world implementation of IP for smart objects, IPSO Alliance and Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC) signed a liaison agreement to align resource models across Smart Home (appliances and sensors) and Industrial Services and Devices.
