San Jose, CA -- The IPSO Alliance (IPSO) announces that Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has joined the organization as a promoter-level member. IPSO has experienced strong growth this year, with 10 companies joining to support its mission to define a framework for smart objects. HPE helps customers use technology to slash the time it takes to turn ideas into value. In turn, they transform industries, markets and lives.
"HPE joins a strong lineup of companies seeking to advance the mission of IPSO," said Jeff Fedders, Chairman of the Board of the IPSO Alliance. "With Internet Protocol now broadly adopted for smart objects, our efforts are evolving in step with the IoT itself. Our membership is focused on defining a secure and identifiable smart object ecosystem to promote interoperability."
IPSO also announced the release of its Smart Objects Expansion Pack, which provides a basis for interoperability across devices connected to the IoT through an open, common object model. The Expansion Pack makes 33 new models available to developers to facilitate the design of a wide range of interoperable products using IPSO smart objects.
The next IPSO member meeting will take place in San Diego, Calif. on December 7-8, 2105 and will be co-located with the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC). The meeting will focus on how the Alliance should approach the challenges surrounding identity and privacy in the IoT.
