Intel and other gadget makers create a standards body for the Internet of things
VentureBeat, July 7, 2014
The Open Interconnect Consortium wants to deliver an open-source specification for
wirelessly connecting devices. The members include Atmel, Broadcom, Dell, Intel, Samsung,
and Intel’s Wind River embedded-software division. The group seeks to accelerate the
development of the Internet of things.
The Open Interconnect Consortium’s first open-source code will target smart homes and office solutions.
The consortium will compete the AllSeen alliance, which includes Qualcomm, LG,
Panasonic, Sharp, and Microsoft. From what I hear, there’s a rift in the industry over
who will own the intellectual property related to the communications.
